Challenge
Kids cultured dairy segment is a high growth and and very highly competitive one with brands like Yakult, Solivite, Vitagen & Milo pumping in huge A&P spends. Dutch Lady’s recently launched ‘Yes’, had to stand out and be relevant in the kids repertoire amongst others in a very limited budget.

Solution
The category was obsessed with mental and physical benefits of milk, so we decided to move away and own the kids right to play in this competitive world. We understood that Kids comics and playbooks are extremely popular and combines fun, play and education is one umbrella and mothers are more than happy to allow their kids to interact with them. Yes needed to be a part of the mom-kid conversations during Play and Funtime

Execution
We tied up with the most popular kids magazine ‘Kuntum’ and affiliated comics like Gogo & Elemen. The brand’ss mascot, the Yes! Cow, was integrated into the comic stories as the superhero who saves the day of the kids from the ‘Routine Monsters’. He tickled the brain of the kids by puzzles, games & general knowledge in the magazine which even the mothers enjoyed reading with her kids.

Results
With a limited budget we reached out to almost 251,000 mothers and kids. The total awareness of Yes! increased by 24% and the conversion of Awareness to Ever Bought increased by a whopping 61% over the campaign period and Yes! cemented itself in the minds of kids and moms.
