  16. 16. AboutYardley • Yardley , though a brand with high recall and recognition, was languishing in the Indian market because of the lack of marketing support.There was seldom any campaign for the brand neither it was promoted at the store level.The new owner inWipro has a very successful marketing history demonstrated by the success of the brand Santoor. • In November 2009, Wipro acquired the rights for marketingYardley in Asia. The ad gave the message of heritage , London Connection, Signature fragrance , attributes ofYardley.

FAILURE • Before going into the quality of the campaign, its important to understand the tactical significance of such a move.Yardley wants to move fast in terms of reinforcing its brand credentials.

  19. 19. • But as usual , the execution failed the brand strategy.The ad was poorly made in the sense that there was no creative spark in it. The theme, execution, message everything was so cliché that the ad never made any impact. At best it reminded about the brand nothing more nothing less. • The Red Rose deodorant ofYardley was not that successful within the consumers as it was too strong and did not like it.

INTRODUCTION • Rexona is the brand that created the deodorant market in India.This brand is a classic case the proves the marketing ability of Hindustan Lever Limited(HLL). • Rexona deodorant introduced lots of variants in order to create strategic pre-emption for the competition to enter the category.
