Tackling the Challenge


In the recent Raksha Bandhan season, IGP wished to establish itself as the one-stop solution for all festive gifting needs of women. Recognising the significance of this festive occasion, IGP sought to overcome the hurdle of effectively reaching and resonating with their target audience—sisters nationwide, or women of age group 25-40 years.

Objective & Idea

IGP's goal was clear: spotlight their carefully curated gifts, emotionally connecting with women aged 25-40 nationwide. Partnering with HT One Audience was pivotal, navigating modern marketing complexities to make their unique offerings stand out during Raksha Bandhan. This move aimed to deepen customer bonds, reinforcing IGP as the go-to destination for heartfelt gifts amidst festive noise.

Target Audience

The younger generation of women are expressive and nurturing, who believe in finding the choicest gifts for their loved ones, as they believe gift-giving to be a means to establish deeper connections. They are thus the ideal target audience for an occasion such as Raksha Bandhan.
