Dura Ultima and Dura Roof are sister companies located in Assam. While Ultima deals with roller shutters, Roof specialises in metal roofing sheets. Considering how niche these products are, the client was keen on increasing brand awareness and conversions.
With more 127 million Indian internet users consuming content in regional languages, what better way to raise awareness and engage with newer audiences? We zeroed in on Assamese as Dura is headquartered in the state of Assam and began running ads and creating fun social media posts in this language. These Assamese ads helped us generate a significantly lower CPL.
Emotional content always helps audiences relate better to a brand. For Dura Ultima and Dura Roof,
we ran a few social media campaigns that tugged at their clients’ heartstrings. Here’s a look at some of our best performing campaigns:
An emotional campaign that revived childhood memories among the audiences
We took inspiration from famous love stories of yore tied them with the “durability” of Dura Roofs
We ran this for Women’s Day celebrating the glorious achievements of Women from the Northeast.
The target audience drew parallels between Durga Ma and the USPs of Dura Ultima’s shutters.
Given the specific nature of Dura’s products, we further improved our branding efforts with revamped websites for both sister brands, complete with GIFs and videos. The new and improved websites also include informative blog pages that act as a central hubs of information for roller shutters and metal roofing sheets, industry trends, maintenance tips and so on.You can also read more on why blogs are important for every business for further information.
YouTube Brandcast 2019 revealed that the platform currently has 265 million users in India alone, offering 3x more effectiveness and ability to scale. By combining the power of video and regional content, Social Beat’s video team produced a web series of 2D animated videos. The series featured humour and familiar themes while each video focussed on one particular product USP.
