Somany Tiles launches new TVC; to spend Rs 20m for campaign

NEW DELHI: In a category driven by facts and design specifications, Somany Tiles’ new television commercial (TVC) builds an emotional connect to create unique brand positioning. The ad makes an emotional appeal to the consumer using the occasion of marriage.

“People usually decorate their houses during special occasions like marriage, birth of a child and during festive season. In our new TVC we have chosen the occasion of marriage and the bride entering her new home for the first time to show how warm and welcoming every home can look by being done up with the right kind of tiles. The objective of the campaign is to involve both men and women in the purchase decision,” says Somany Tiles executive director Abhishek Somany.

According to Somany: "Taking the viewer through a tour of the house elegantly done in various concepts of floor and wall tiles, the ad demonstrates the suitability of tiles in various parts of the house bedroom, living room and bathroom."

To make the tiles purchase more involved and create a lasting recall for the brand, the ad positions the house as a silent protagonist - says the release. The warm, welcome ambience of the house comforts the bride, when she takes her first step; and is there for the couple, after the celebrations are over and the guests have left.

The release says that the budget of Rs 20 million has been allocated for this ad campaign that went on air from 10 September 2003.
