Together with Glance, they raised brand awareness during micro-moments - when consumers engage with content on their mobile phones' lock screens. The brand saw not only great visibility and reach, but also recorded great engagement rates on the content. The dwell times speak volumes on the interest generated among the audiences in India."

The Brand Objective

With the Coronavirus outbreak, the brand decided to launch Viroprotek, a range of hand and surface sanitizers, to protect consumers during the pandemic and increase hygiene awareness among them. Asian Paints launched the Viroprotek range despite a heavily competitive market and aimed to drive interest in the brand during a vulnerable time. In this regard, the brand intended to leverage mobile to deliver the message to the user seamlessly.
The Brand Objective

The Solution

With 115 million DAUs and 23 minutes of average dwell time, Glance provides users engaging and immersive content experiences. With 45% smartphone penetration in metropolitan cities, 35% in tier II cities, and 20% in the rest of India, Glance was the perfect platform to reach users across India.
The Solution

Reaching Audiences with a Screen-Zero Experience


The brand doubled down on the visual storytelling narrative with two full-screen creatives visible on users' lock screens. This meant that the user didn't have to view or open the app to see the ad, enabling a screen-zero experience. With a platform that grabs the user's attention in the first go, leveraging Glance delivered a non-intrusive experience for the users.



Visual Storytelling Done Right with Immersive Creatives
 

The brand worked with Glance to deliver experiences beyond mere product display and took the leap to educate consumers on the importance of using sanitizers and disinfectants in the most crucial time across India through thought-provoking creatives. 

While the first glance was launched with the theme 'the guardian that protects your home' reached smartphone users across India at a relevant time when consumers were looking out for sanitizers, the second glance promoted an educational message to 'sanitize hands and home surfaces' by featuring their wide product range.  As a result of the campaign, Delhi accounted for the highest viewed glances, and Kolkata recorded the highest engagement rate of 67%. 


Campaign Levers that Optimized the Overall Performance


By optimizing peak hours and delivering the ad between 12 PM to 3 PM, Glance increased the Viroprotek range's discoverability. And through a direct-response CTA - 'Buy Now,' the brand redirected viewers to the Asian Paints website, where they could immediately purchase the product.
