Pathaan: 5 lessons on the Indian Consumer

Leveraging  Brand Assets

Are we limiting our brands into manufacturer led category definitions? 

Brands connect with consumers at a deeper emotional level and transcend categories. Understanding brand semiotic codes can help us find new growth avenues leveraging the current brand assets, and not get restricted into current technology or manufacturing formats.

In this thought-leadership piece, we study the soft drink category and talk of the opportunity Brand Pepsi has to redefine youth cool and keep growing its franchise!



Grabbing Attention vs Brand Love

It is completely acceptable to define brand salience as the key campaign objective! After all, it is possible to communicate brand benefits via other means and use advertising to meet brand salience goals. The case in point is perhaps the Rahul Dravid Cred advertising. The company betted on the fact that if the advertising makes the intended audience curious enough, they would look-up the product online.

Improving Retention

Worried about staying top-of-mind and driving conversion and repeats?

According to an HBR report, repeat customers spend 33 percent more than existing ones and a 5 percent increase in customer retention can lead to at least 25 percent increase in profits.

However, in our effort to remain top-of-mind, we may be doing more harm to the brand than helping increase transactions or improve retention. How do we leverage existing category habits and consumer behavior to ensure the right frequency, tonality and personalization of content?


Indian Couple
The Changing Gender Codes 

Are your brands choosing the right influencers? Is your brand persona and marketing communication in line with the emergent codes?   

In line with the changing social norms around work, childcare, and nuclear households we see a change in societal codes around masculine and feminine role models.  Women are increasingly required to be assertive & have a voice while the men are expected to be in touch with their nurturing side, while being confident in their masculinity. We see the impact across their beauty, grooming and lifestyle choices.
