Freakins India, a popular fast fashion brand, recently collaborated with social media influencers Tarini Shah, Agasthya Shah, Prableen Kaur, and Muskan Chanchlani for their latest out-of-home (OOH) campaign.
The campaign featured eye-catching billboards showcasing the brand's stylish denim collection worn by the influencers. The strategic placement of the billboards at Haji Ali Junction, Mumbai, generated curiosity and buzz among their dedicated fan bases.
This collaboration highlights the increasing trend of brands leveraging the influence of social media influencers to enhance their brand image and reach a wider audience. It also showcases the power of personalized branding and the impact of influencer marketing in the fashion industry.
While Target has seen modest sales gains, it will need a strong back-to-school shopping season to meet its sales forecast for 2023.
Target has been successful in attracting wealthy households, which has helped the company maintain healthy profits even in a retail downturn.
The retailer has focused on rebalancing its portfolio, particularly in non-glamorous items like food and beverages, which has resulted in market share gains in those categories.
Target's partnership with Ulta Beauty has also been a strategic move to appeal to affluent shoppers while remaining relevant in the changing marketplace.- Prices are going up and Target is losing sales.
17.8% of Target’s potential market are households earning $150K+ yet has only captured 19.6% of those households
We continue to witness the shift away from pure performance marketing and a return to building brands.
There is, of course, still the hypothesis of performance behind any initiative, the underlying goal of any effort is to create impact, so what an opportunity!
What an opportunity to be able to meet marketers halfway and show them how the real world is more targeted than the internet and just as measurable.
Special times we’re in.
Standing out is one of the greatest challenges in marketing.
I foresee a shift away from UGC/IGC toward more traditional, campaign-style ad creative. Consumers are savvy, and they're getting bored of the same old scripts. Get creative, have something to say, and stand out.
