To understand a brand like New Holland which is one of the global leader in its space, the core strategy and messaging enables us to build up connection with audiences leading to sustainable engagement unlike a B2C segment. Besides, it's great to work with a brand that can give you the freedom of applying integrated services as the efforts can be synchronised well. The core objective of the campaign is to communicate to the direct and indirect audience that New Holland being the pioneer in tractor technology, it should be the ONLY choice of every progressive farmer in the country."

And to cater to this growing need of the segment, which needs a whole range of solutions that would ease agricultural operations. Observing the scope and the willingness of the farmers to explore newer technology, we wanted to offer our global expertise to add value to the Indian agricultural sector. Searching for effective media to communicate the same to the direct and indirect audiences was a challenge. We jointly worked out an impactful road map with Focus, to ensure that we are able to successfully achieve our business objective of creating strong brand image and further strengthening it."
