MarketMen devised a strategy of building a women’s club, a giant community of the core TG of women in the age group of 18 to 45 to further engage them with the channel and its content and build affinity for the Colors brand.
Thus was born the idea of ‘COLORS GOLDEN PETAL CLUB’ – a unique property to turn viewers into advocates.
The Club was planned to host sustained events and activations for the Channel to showcase and sample new shows & create long lasting relationships with it’s viewers.
EXECUTION: 3 Levels To Success
Phase 1 – Door To Door capturing to database, inviting membership to CGPC. This allows the channel to ensure the members social status, gauge her economic & cultural conditions first hand.
Phase 2 – Kitty party in the homes explaining the community membership benefits to the TG. The kitty party format allowed the channel to go directly into the viewers homes. The kitty party is an intimate setting that also allows the channel to gain a larger base of members.
Phase 3 – Outdoor Events.
Kitty parties led to larger events that promote specific shows, allowed TG to interact with channel cast and vice versa allowed the channel to sample new shows amongst the club members. The platform is a win win situation for both – the channel as well as the members.
The members are invited to larger outdoor events hosted to sample specific shows & content. This also allows them to make new friends, bond with similar culture ladies in their own age group and therefore build a social circle of their own. At the events, the ladies interact with the channel stars, participates in games and sample new upcoming concepts from the channel. The opportunity to interact face to face and be on the same stage with television stars is a ‘money can’t buy’ gratification that is priceless and therefore improves the member’s aspirational value amongst her social and family circle. Besides, it is an evening of entertainment and fun that gives her a much needed outing and a break from her daily schedule with no costs attached as the event is completely free and exclusively for members.
Each event held under the CGPC banner is promoted as an individual event with extensive pre event amplification to .
SMS Blasts to members + Newspaper Inserts + Social media marketing + posters & banners + Radio promos all come together to ensure audience attendance of anywhere between a minimum of 2000 women to a maximum participation till date of 7000 audience at a single event.
Colors Golden Petal Club is a massive success and has already crossed a membership base of 1 lakh+ women only in Uttar Pradesh.
