2015 marked the beginning of the digital journey for Olper’s cream as an independent brand away from its parent brand’s shadow. Therefore, it was of utmost importance for the brand to not only interact with its audience but also to gain genuine followers through distinctive and interesting content.
An in-depth research on the consumer revealed that, for our target audience (that comprises of females 18 -28 Sec A B) family happens to be the most integral part of their life. Serving and caring for their family is their way to seek fulfilment in life. Another insight exposed that they are passionate about food; and what better way to serve and care for your family than providing the food they love.
These interesting insights combined with the brand truth that Olper’s cream stands for; – providing a sense of fulfilment, led us to explore the platform of baking – yet untapped by any other brand.
The strategic approach and aim was simple; our consumer seeks fulfilment by providing her family with delicious food, then why not provide her that.
The challenge, however, was how to stay away from the clutter of recipe shows that every channel throws our way
Solution was right there in the question itself; let’s not dish out recipes and add to the clutter but be the giver and taker both by making this a two way communication. Add more fun, make this a competition – add some spice, make this a reality show. Hence, the recipe for Pakistan’s Biggest Digital Baking show was complete.
