Summary

Diwali has always been one of the most important festivals in India. This Diwali, Amway India attempted to spark the festive joy by lining up numerous campaigns and activations with the theme centered around nutrition and wellness, both at the national and the regional level. 

The brand had a clear focus that the festival should be celebrated with greater joy and enthusiasm, but with utmost priority to nutrition and hygiene. Unlike last year, with markets opening in full swing, people traveling home, it would be safe to say that the festive excitement was almost back with a bang like old times. The company added joy to this celebration with its range of wellness products and initiatives to double the ‘Dhamaka’.

Objective

The objective of the Amway India festive campaign was to connect with the target audience on Diwali and reiterate the importance of healthy living while fostering the spirit of community building to bring in the festive fervor.

Brief

The idea was to build relatability between the celebrations and the range of Amway products across the categories with the nutrition category, emphasizing the importance of a well-balanced diet and the need for supplementation to fill the nutritional gap and the beauty category, creating excitement around a new range of shades and colors.

With festive cleaning in every household, the brief for the homecare category was to make home cleaning celebratory with Amway Home products, and on the Consumer Durables front, the brand brief was to highlight the importance of breathing clean air with Atmosphere Mini air purifier from Amway.

Execution

Leveraging the trend of online communities based on shared passions such as health, beauty, cooking, etc., Amway India initiated virtual knowledge sessions across regions on various topics ranging from cooking nutritious festive recipes, maintaining a good immune system, balanced diet with supplementation, festive makeover tips and more, as part of its Diwali campaign.

Additionally, the nutrition and wellness brand initiated an awareness campaign on each of the categories across the social platforms, and all of these coupled with attractive offers such as extra value packs, new launches, and product bundling offers. 

The social campaign ‘Amway wali Double Diwali’ was conceptualized linking Diwali celebrations with the range of Amway products across the categories. Thus, encouraging a fun-filled celebration with families packaged with product solutions on nutrition, wellness, and hygiene – a reason for double celebrations!

From the products on health & nutrition to grooming ranges, Amway shared a series of social media posts as part of #AmwayWaliDoubleDiwali campaign.
