Wall Paintings: This is the most used method for communicating by the brand. Painting the walls of distributor‟s / retailer‟s premises in the color and logo of the Brand grabs people‟s eyeballs and also their mind space Hoardings: The bigger and more visible hoardings are being placed at areas of high footfalls like malls and community centres around Nagpur Bus & vehicle Paintings: Currently 100 buses and other vehicles in Nagpur are painted in the colours of Murli Cement Real State Sites: The brand hoardings have been displayed at various real estate sites in and around Nagpur. The Kiosks have also been setup in these real estate sites and therefore, it occupies most of the consumer‟s mindshare Radio Spots: A few Radio spots have been aired in various local radio stations as well as private radio stations. This was used for increasing the reach of the brand communications to the rural people in the areas.
Radio Shows: There used to be short 5 minute shows telling about the importance of owning houses that have been sponsored by Murli. This has decreased currently Masons Meet: To promote the brand in the household sector, Mason‟s Meet is conducted every 6 months. This increases the visibility of the brand in the eyes of the masons who act as influencers in the purchasing process of Household buyers Dealers/ Builders meet: To get a hold of the Business to Business segment of the market, in which it is already doing good, Murli conducts Dealer‟s / Builder‟s Meet to gain market intelligence from them and also to excessively promote their own brand Merchandising: It has been used predominantly in conjunction with various meets and distributed at Murli Cement Kiosks at the real estate sites
