Brief Explanation

Situation Analysis Tresemme had just launched in INDIA and had to reach out to its urban consumer in an already cluttered hair care market. The brand wanted to drive aspiration, own the backstage experience and differentiate on salon quality hair. Key consumer insight The Indian style seeker’s hair is an expression of who she is. She is highly involved with hair care and there’s a great willingness to invest in products and processes. She knows the salon, which is more expensive but has better quality products and services, is the place to go for the expert touch and would love to be able to bring that home. The media solution In the context of beauty and hair care the target audience is increasingly looking at latest trends and increasingly understanding and living the space is something she is constantly seeking. Since she is an urban consumer the medium she seeks for information is the internet, she spends more than 2.5 hours a week online. YouTube is one of her favourite places to consume content, as styles can’t be read they have to be watched. Also a recent Google India's 'Women & Web' study reveals over 50 per cent women who access the internet in India have said that internet research influenced their decision before finalizing a product, In terms of the most researched category and influence on final purchase decisions, internet influence for Hair care was 65%.
