  18. 18.

  19. 19. JFM Activity <ul><li>JFM means January, February and March window, which is a very important period in insurance sector as more than 50% of business for the insurance plans comes during this time and also the maximum advertising is done during this phase only as it is a tax free window and saves a lot of money for the customers as they are exempted tax during this time. </li></ul><ul><li>ICICI Prudential and Bajaj Allianz are most aggressive and direct during this period. </li></ul>
  20. 20. ICICI- Chintamani <ul><li>ICICI have their Chintamani, which they unravel at this time of the year to talk about tax benefits. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Bajaj Allianz in JFM <ul><li>They too are getting aggressive in the JFM window. </li></ul><ul><li>Came out with two TVC’s last year during this time for tax benefits. </li></ul>
  22. 22. This Year <ul><li>A complete 360 degree approach from Bajaj Allianz for the tax saving months. </li></ul><ul><li>They have a TVC lined up to be aired, called </li></ul><ul><li>“ Tax Emergency, Mujhe Bulaiye” </li></ul><ul><li>They are also doing radio and OOH for the same. </li></ul>
  23. 24. Analysis <ul><li>More than 50% of all the advertising spends happen in the JFM window for all the players. </li></ul><ul><li>Majority policies are also sold during this window only. </li></ul><ul><li>The market is highly cluttered so communication is very difficult, being niche and concentrating on one product offering only is a smart way to go. </li></ul><ul><li>2 players in the market have a constant strategy throughout the year that is expandable to all the plans that they offer. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Max New York Life- Karo zyada ka irada. </li></ul><ul><li>2. HDFC Life- Sar utha ke jiyo. </li></ul>
  24. 25. Sahara India Life <ul><li>Relatively new in the market, Sahara India Life needs to establish themselves, hence, Brand Promotion. </li></ul><ul><li>While some private players focus on the higher strata of society in metros, Sahara Life Insurance hopes to address the common man in its communication and the confidence and fearlessness that insurance brings with it.  </li></ul>
  25. 26. Repositioning Sahara India Life Insurance <ul><li>The only player in the insurance sector that is 100% Indian subsidiary. </li></ul><ul><li>It is seen that in this highly cluttered market having a niche is really important specially for a new player as there are not many new products to offer. </li></ul><ul><li>One cannot have the first movers advantage and with the redundant communication from almost all the players it is important to stick to your niche. </li></ul><ul><li>Sahara India have the advantage of being completely local and can play on the emotional front in that respect. </li></ul>
  26. 27. <ul><li>TG - </li></ul><ul><li>Their target group is the common man of India. </li></ul><ul><li>Insight - </li></ul><ul><li>The most important thing for an Indian is to provide good education to his children, also since India is one of the most learned country with more and more people going for higher education. </li></ul><ul><li>The Target Audience is all the more concerned about their child’s education as they want their child to become all that they could not and for that they want to provide them with the best education possible. </li></ul>
  27. 28. <ul><li>Idea : </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hamare Desh ka Future, Hamare Bachche” </li></ul><ul><li>Sahara India can have a niche in providing child plans in India. </li></ul><ul><li>For that their main competitor would be Aviva Life Insurance who are also concentrating on the same with their new positioning “Education is Insurance”. </li></ul><ul><li>Aviva is also not very established in the market as of now so Sahara life would have the advantage of being Indian and targeting the common man in all their communication. </li></ul>
  28. 29. The New Positioning <ul><li>The new positioning is concentrated only on Child Plans. </li></ul><ul><li>The new tagline: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hamare Desh ka Future, Hamare Bachche” </li></ul><ul><li>And since the new positioning is coming out in the month of January, an aggressive approach needs to be followed to make the most of the JFM window. </li></ul>
  29. 30. <ul><li>Since the positioning is new and communication is aggressive a single idea needs to be communicated via all mediums for maximum impact. </li></ul><ul><li>The idea is to encourage people to help orphan children by teaching them, helping them by providing them books and other necessities. It denotes the fact that even for a common man, they have Sahara life to help their children in future to progress and study better with their child plans but orphans don’t have any such comfort so for that everyone needs to lend a helping hand. (Buddy System) </li></ul>
  30. 31. <ul><li>We will roll out with a single TVC to introduce the new positioning and to increase awareness. The TVC would show a parent taking tension over his child’s further studies, when a Sahara life’s executive comes and tells him about their child plans and suggests that your child’s responsibility is now on us, you should consider helping someone else too.(your buddy) </li></ul><ul><li>Followed by aggressive OOH with hoardings that would urge people to go in for the “Buddy system”. </li></ul>
  31. 32. <ul><li> For BTL : </li></ul><ul><li>We would be having road shows and other kiosks at fund raiser events where we would educate people of the Buddy system and about our child plans as to how it is beneficial and at the same time satisfying. </li></ul><ul><li> For Direct Marketing : </li></ul><ul><li>We would have our Insurance executives going over to households and educating them about the importance of child plans for their children’s future. </li></ul>
  32. 33. Talk Points for the executive when he/she goes to sell child plans: <ul><li>The best investment is one which yields highest and regular returns and no one can do that but your children, you can invest in their education once to reap lifelong benefits, guaranteed. </li></ul><ul><li>Gives you a fixed amount at regular intervals of time during the time of your children’s education, so you don’t have to arrange a lump sum for his/her education. </li></ul><ul><li>Even in case of eventuality, the child’s aspirations in that same direction would not be hampered. </li></ul><ul><li>You would not want your retirement and your child’s higher education to hit you together without any proper planning. </li></ul><ul><li>Let your child determine his worth, not the tuition fee. </li></ul><ul><li>School is the only place that takes fees monthly. Graduation and Post-Graduation colleges don’t. </li></ul>
  33. 34. New Media <ul><li>We would promote the Buddy System through the social networking sites like facebook, orkut, etc as well wherein people can help out an orphan who will then become their Buddy and they can upload their videos and pics on their profile saying that he/she is their buddy and ask for people to join in to help their buddy or get a buddy of their own. </li></ul><ul><li>We would have a website where we would feature everyone who has buddies and how well they are doing for them. </li></ul><ul><li>We will also have a user interaction link where people can discuss various ways and means by which they can help the kids. </li></ul>
  34. 35. Thank You
