Banjara’s, the herbal beauty care brand, has awarded the digital duties to Mirum India. So far the brand has been operating predominantly in the South India, but from this fiscal year wants to aggressively target the rest of India markets. This expansion plan will be majorly driven by digital marketing.
As part of the digital mandate, Mirum India will manage all the social media platforms and create new digital touch points for Banjara’s, with focus on brand building. Mirum India will also be offering media buying services as part of the mandate. This account was won following a multi-agency pitch.
Banjara’s is a part of Vishal Personal Care that was founded in 1993. The company has grown from having six products to 60 products today. Its products are marketed across all South Indian markets and are also available online.
Ramesh Vishwananthan, Managing Director, Vishal Personal Care, said, “We are aggressively looking at expanding our footprint outside South India with digital leading the way. We were looking for partner rather than an agency, who would understand our ambitions. Mirum India with their diverse understanding of the digital landscape, fitted the bill. We are excited about this new partnership.”
Hareesh Tibrewala, Mirum India, Joint CEO, Mirum India, said, “Banjara’s is one of the fast growing FMCG players in South India with a very ambitious brand DNA. Mirum recognises this and brings to the table its vast Indian and global expertise in digital shopper marketing. I’m glad we’re the ones Banjara’s has put their trust in. Together we look forward to take the brand to the next level.”
