Relationship building opportunities:Suggestions and Creatives The brand advertised needs to look inexpensive yet of quality Price consciousness implies, promotional pricing will help Brand loyalty is low, so special initiatives on brand awareness required
Creative Strategy: There are radio ads, print ads and basic street plays used The creative uses a sleepy character who is the classic lazy village nobody, hanging around like a loafer on the streets (symbolize with typical dialogues and scenarios) . He drinks the tea and becomes a sharp dressing white collared executive (depending on area into a clerk/teacher etc). This creates the aspiration of people to adopt a better lifestyle in a subtle manner by creating the message that tea drinkers are evolved people.
Relationship building opportunities:Building relationship with futuristic perspective Create a brand with strong loyalty to introduce variants like ice tea for youngsters Increase consumption of branded tea by creating an aspiration towards progress and social status Relationship building by constant direct communication involving customers feedback and promotions Direct agents created in each village to communicate brand message of progress
