10 Exceptional and Engaging Indian Marketing Campaigns

07 May 2024

There are many advertising and marketing campaigns released in India which are known for their creativity and innovation and how they have positively affected the audience. From heart-touching stories to strong social messages, these campaigns have become an imprint in the minds of consumers. In this blog, we will go through the top ten marketing ad campaigns in which consumers were highly influenced.

Here Are the Top Ten Indian Marketing Ad Campaigns:

  1. Amul’s Hoarding Campaign

This is one of the most popular marketing drives. Amul uses puns on the latest trends and relates them effortlessly with their products, grabbing the attention of the audience. It not just highlights the wide range of products offered by the company, but also stays in the minds of the audience.

  1. Tanishq’s ‘Ek Nayi Subah’ Campaign

This campaign of Tanishq was aimed at working women and sent a clear message of the necessity of self-love and self-care. The campaign focused on actual stories of women combining building a career and private lives. This created a connection between the brand and its target consumers. This campaign reflects how strategic insights of an advertising agency can do wonders for a brand.

  1. Cadbury’s “Kuch Khaas Hai” Campaign

Before this commercial aired, chocolate was typically associated with children, and it wasn’t common for adults to openly enjoy it. However, this ad broke away from that stereotype, normalizing chocolate consumption among adults. It introduced the idea that it’s perfectly acceptable for adults to indulge in chocolates, thus broadening the product’s consumer base. By celebrating the inner child in every adult, the ad challenged long-held perceptions and reportedly redefined Cadbury Dairy Milk’s positioning in the market. The iconic jingle “Kuch Khaas Hai” in the background was sung by the renowned Indian singer Shankar Mahadevan.

  1. Lays’ ‘Bhukkad Panti’ Campaign

This campaign was one of the kinds of creative marketing that used user-generated content as a weapon. This campaign made people post funny habits, such as doing a weird dance while cooking. Thus, it helped the brand’s recognition and the products. This Ad campaign demonstrates the interactive approach of an advertisement company.

  1. Surf Excel’s ‘Daag Acche Hain’ Campaign

The campaign focused on showcasing how children embraced getting dirty while helping others, portraying stains as a symbol of good deeds rather than something negative. It’s the combination of children and a disruptive message calling dirt good that did the magic for the brand.
