  2. 2. BRAND POSITIONING • Is the consumers perception of the brand in relation to other competing brands in the same space • Is also the specific niche in which the brand defines itself in a competitive environment with respect to – Positioning Addresses – Differentiating Brand Attributes – User benefits and Trade segments • Positioning involves the careful manipulation of every element of the communication mix
  3. 3. BRAND POSITIONING • Brand Values should stay constant across all communication channels and touch points – Airtel : Leadership, Self Expression Youthfulness, Pan India Brand, – Hutch – Has positioned itself as a simple and premium brand. It has positioned itself on five core values • CHOPS” - C-Coverage, H-Honest, O-Open, P Premier, S-Service – Reliance – “Kar Lo duniya Mutthi mein” , positioning themselves as an affordable brand which enables people to reach out to the world
  4. 4. TELECOM BRAND’S APPEAL • Telecom brands mainly promise four payoffs to a consumer – Connectivity : “Connecting India ” – BSNL – Enhancement of Life : “Live Every Moment” – Airtel – Self Expression : “ Express yourself ” – Airtel – Empower yourself : “Mujh Mein Hein Woh Baat ” – Reliance
  5. 5. MARKET LEARNINGS • There is a complete parity of product and service across brands • Even with a particular tariff plan/ loyalty program, clones appear across brands with very little time lag • All products/ services across brands move towards parity – natural state of equilibrium in this market
  6. 6. WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE ? • Brand Personality • Consumers choose brands that “fit in” with their personality - this personality is the reward that consumers seek and the payoff they buy into • This buying into “personality” not overt promises an accepted part of all fashion brands marketing and advertising
  7. 7. INDIAN EXPERIENCE • Airtel’s positioning platform may be self expression – but the reward that consumers buy into is “popular appeal” – as epitomized by Shahrukh and Sachin • Reliance’s claimed consumer benefit may be about self empowerment – “Kar Lo Duniya Muththi Mein” – but the reason consumers would choose it would be on account of the personality – something that is still influenced by Monsoon Hungama, Pioneer Offer – “for the common man”
  8. 8. INDIAN EXPERIENCE • Tata Indicom, chose a trait that is already associated with the Tata name to hone the personality – the honest service – distinct and relevant • Hutch exemplifies its personality the best – always has a consistent and well etched out personality – friendly, contemporary, western, non strident – In fact there is no overt consumer promise/ benefit the brand has ever claimed other than its personality
  9. 9. LEARNINGS FOR ESSAR • A need to understand the personality landscape of the Indian mobile service brands – Brands that recognize this truth build consistent and attractive personalities which is the only reward that consumers seek • Etch out a personality that is distinct, consistent and attractive to our target consumer • This should be carried through all communication channels and touch points
  10. 10. PERSONALITY TYPES • Consideration of some distinct “personality” types – Urban, ironic ‘take’ on small town India (Mentos, Close Up) – The lovable rogue: Just outside the law, but with a heart of gold - Munnabhai MBBS – Entertaining :Either larger than life Bollywood tamasha entertaining (Vanilla Coke) or gentle humor (Kelvinator) – Have a youth icon, like Sanya Mirza, symbolizing a challenger (as a late entrant into the market) – Loyal/trustworthy offering a serious commitment – Excitement / thrills : about stimulation/ fun – (the josh machine) – Love/ intimacy/ belonging /Family – The patriot – Appealing to a consumers Intelligence
  11. 11. TYPES OF BRAND DIFFERENTIATORS • Instant karma – promotions) Immediate effect, Instant gratification/benefits (connectivity, service, • Emotional – Play on feelings related to family, love, camaraderie, friends • Indianess – Reflection on Indian values/culture. Capitalizing on the inherent preferences • Feature based – Capitalizing on a feature based gap. Creating a unique identity in terms of a technological feature or a service • Network/Coverage – Stay Connected, whenever, wherever you are! • Loyalty – Projecting a transparent image to induce trustworthiness • Youth – Projecting a young at heart image, a go-getter, a challenger • Convenience – “FREEDOM FROM DISCOMFORT” – Understanding the consumer and providing convenient need based services – Approachable and flexible
