Xaxis and m/Six Showcase Outstanding Results for Valvoline
Xaxis, the Outcome Media Company and GroupM’s advanced programmatic arm, today announced results from its campaign for Valvoline in India. The campaign results demonstrate the outstanding success of Xaxis’ tailored approach in enabling global brands to connect with customers in different markets.
The Valvoline campaign, undertaken in partnership with m/Six to drive brand recall among digital TV viewers, reached 180,000 unique users over a four-month campaign period. For this campaign, the client sought to branch out from traditional TV to reach its target audience of auto enthusiasts, adventure seekers, biking groups and social aspirers through digital TV channels. Without prior campaign learnings as reference for audience buckets or behaviors, Xaxis and m/Six leveraged data sets to identify selective audiences, targeting them programmatically with Xaxis Premium and Xaxis View. Using a robust digital media and creative strategy, the campaign successfully drove a 25% lift in brand awareness, a 13% increase in recorded brand recommendations, and an increase of 10% in intent to purchase Valvoline products.
Bharat Khatri, Country Lead, Xaxis India, said, “Valvoline was keen on venturing beyond traditional TV and attracting new consumer segments. In partnership with m/Six, we suggested a combined TV plus OTT platform strategy to expand their audience reach. The user reach exceeded our expectations with soaring GRPs, and this personalized approach towards the campaign proved to be successful in delivering great results.”
“We’re thrilled to announce the campaign was a huge success,” said Jyoti Sharma, Head of Brand, Valvoline. “Results surpassed our original KPIs and delivered 62% higher GRPs than traditional TV advertising. We needed a holistic solution, and the Xaxis and m/Six teams went above and beyond, bringing in their arsenal the right mix of deep market intelligence, communication strategies, dataset activation, creativity and more to help drive home a campaign that has measurable value and aligns with our overall business objectives.”
Saket Sinha, Senior VP, m/Six, said, “Valvoline had largely employed television, a traditional medium, for advertising; but they were keen on venturing into the digital space and attracting new consumer segments. Hence, we suggested a combined TV plus OTT platform strategy to expand their audience reach. We created a digital media and creative strategy to drive brand recall and awareness, in partnership with Xaxis. We also used a TVC featuring Virat Kohli as the brand ambassador. The user reach exceeded our expectations with soaring GRPs, and this personalized approach towards the campaign delivered highly successful results.”
