Timesaverz.com Makes A Clean Sweep At Retail
By Nabamita Chatterjee | January 11, 2016
BMS Retail executed the activity in all 18 Star Bazaar outlets. Right from the time of entry to the aisles to the exit, various branding elements were designed and executed.
For connecting with the TG during the festive season when shoppers throng malls, Timesaverz endeavoured promote its services to make the customers lives as convenient as possible. Executed by BMS Retail, the in-store campaign communicated the brand's offering at the right place and at the right time.
As part of the tie-up, with every purchase of home cleaning products, Star Bazaar customers were eligible for various services like home cleaning, laundry, painting and beauty services at a special price. The benefits of this unique integration was available for customers across all 18 Star Bazaar outlets in Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru.
Speaking of the association, Debadutta Upadhyaya, Co-Founder and CEO, Timesaverz.com commented, "Our association with Star Bazaar was driven by the opportunity to connect with customers when they are in the festive shopping mind-frame and encourage them to adopt our home service offerings which is much required during this time. And since we have a common TG - working men and women - the association, worked out well for us. About 15% of our Diwali sales were driven from this channel through a mix of branding and on-ground promo-activation".
According to Ravi Jadhav, Director Strategy & Business Planning, BMS Retail, "It's all about visibility and connecting with target audience and creating its accurate relevance. With modern retail being a big touch point, we tried to leverage the association with Star Bazaar, to the fullest for the client. Especially during Diwali Season, there is a significant amount of footfalls. This coincides with many households doing errands like house cleaning, painting, repair works etc., which are generally seen as cumbersome, as help is not easily available and requires a certain amount of self help and time. To encash on this, BMS Retail put together a visibility campaign across Star Bazaar, trying to create awareness among its target customers. So right from the time of entry to the aisles to the exit, various branding elements were designed and executed ranging from arch gates, floor branding, elevator branding, drop downs, pillar branding etc. and the connect of Timesaverz with the 'Cleaning' category was very significant.â€
