MUMBAI: Hardly, if ever, will you find a woman who does not like ornaments.
And so, the Tata Group’s jewellery brand, Tanishq, has launched a digital campaign ‘My Expression’ which not only taps this feminine attribute but also gives members of the fairer sex an opportunity to explore their creativity.
Essentially an online jewellery designing contest, ‘My Expression’ seeks to give concrete shape to individual ideas in the form of the Mia collection or jewellery for working women by Tanishq. To participate in the competition - currently in its second season - simply upload your inspiration/idea for Mia in the form of photographs, videos, Do it yourself, audio and plain words on the microsite http://mia.tanishq.co.in/myexpression.
Speaking of ‘My Expression’, Titan Company Jewellery division head marketing and general manager Deepika Tewari says: “With the aim to encourage participants to source inspiration from the smallest thing and turn it into beautiful pieces of jewellery, ‘My Expression’ is a one of its kind jewellery designing contest.”
While the first season saw just over 3200 entries from across the country, this season, there have been a staggering 10,000 entries from both India and abroad. “The second season of ‘My Expression’ is bigger, better and has gone international too. While the aim remains the same – encouraging women to express their ideas and give it shape in the form of a piece of jewellery,” says Tewari.
The contest is a medium for Tanishq to get closer to its fans and customers. “My Expression is a perfect example of activity through which a brand can grow closer to its customers. Digital initiatives like this help us gain great consumer insights on the product and service front. With the digital medium playing an indispensible role in our lives, engaging activity on this platform is always a bonus for a brand to get a better understanding of the consumer, decoding the styling required and a deep dive to decipher a jewellery category never before addressed in the market,” explains Tewari.
With Maxus handling promotion of the activity, only emails, facebook ads, banner ads and smses are being deployed to spread awareness about the contest.
