IBD plays a key role in SYSKA’s foray into Personal Care Appliances
IBD India, a Percept – Hakuhodo Company, has bagged the creative duties of SYSKA Personal Care Appliances division.
SYSKA, the pioneer of LED lights in India, enjoys a leadership status among the competing brands. IBD India, ‘the Agency on Record’ had played a key role in the brand’s success since its inception and helped it attain a phenomenal stature in a very short span of time.
SYSKA recently diversified its portfolio from LED Lights and Accessories to the Personal Care Appliances (PCA) segment under both male and female categories. Being an ambitious foray of the group, this involved a big business diversification plan in the PCA segment commencing with the launch of an overwhelming portfolio of 30 products, and with more to come soon.
IBD’s role has been paramount in the business diversification for SYSKA, right from devising the diversification strategy to creating a brand architecture, product packaging and conceptualizing the entire creative campaign spread across TV, Print and Digital media.
The stars of Bollywood endorse SYSKA PCA
It was the agency’s recommendation to rope in the new heartthrob of India, Sushant Singh Rajput, as the brand ambassador for the men’s range of PCA products. The campaign has cleverly used actor Sushant’s personality and journey to stardom into the narrative. The TVC weaves an interesting story, deeply connecting with the audience, thereby presenting SYSKA PCA in an engaging and grand way.
The female range of personal care products are endorsed by Tamanna Bhatia. The campaign has been very stylishly crafted, offering a fresh new appeal complimenting it with an interesting jingle.
SYSKA is now a powerhouse brand endorsed by celebrities, spanning the internationally acclaimed Irrfan Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Tamanna Bhatia.
The campaign gives the brand a high style quotient and takes inspiration from the life of the ‘young’, who are ready to live their dreams and who have the substance and grit to lead their life with confidence.
On their foray into the PCA domain and association with IBD India, Rajesh Uttamchandani, Director, SYSKA Group commented, “The grooming market is at Rs. 2500 – 3000 crore which is growing year on year at 25 - 30 percent. Adding to this there are no organised players in the market, minus the select few, which clearly showcases the massive opportunity which the market offers. We are eyeing a 10 percent market share, to become the most favoured brand in this category. We envision this category as the second largest growth contributor to our business. Currently we would be spending Rs. 100 crore for the calendar year 2017 and with the help of our brand custodian IBD India, the spends are well strategized across targeted mediums spanning TV, Print and Digital to maximize reach and desired impact.”
Speaking on the campaign, Rahul Gupta, Founder and Managing Director of IBD India, said, “We were involved right from the beginning with SYSKA in their journey to diversify and enter into the PCA category. It gives me immense joy to see it evolving so well. We wanted to break away from the atypical communication mould and present a fresh new story line for both the men’s and women’s range of PCA products to create high aspiration values for the brand. The campaign has been very well received and has given SYSKA a fantastic launch and a firm footing in the PCA category.”
