Brand Update : Rexona

Hindustan Lever Ltd has signed in Hollywood diva Preity Zinta as the brand ambassador for its Deodorant brand Rexona. The company in a press release also mentioned that the brand will be extending itself into health and hygiene rather than limiting itself to fragrance and deo. Preity will be endorsing the Rexona Roll- on range of deos. The move aims at increasing the volume and user base of the brand. I have written last year that the brand needs a celebrity boost and it seems that my reading was correct. Preity is the right choice for the brand and if properly used, she can give a new life to the brand. Preity has proved her might in reviving the fortunes of brands like Perk and Scooty. Rexona is targeting the SEC A and B segment. According to the news reports, the company plans to launch a 360 degree campaign to rev up the brand.Preity Zinta is considered to be a very positive and confident personality and the association will have a positive effect on Rexona. The brand has the tagline of " Be Ready" and the body copy reads " Who will you meet next". Right now the brand is being promoted using foreign ads which may not have the required impact. The new campaign featuring Preity is expected to hit the media soon.
