With a promise of refreshment and uplifting your mood, 7UP has been able to position itself in Bangladesh as an evolving and modern brand in tune with the current youth culture. This has made the brand the third best selling soft drink in the world and since its entry into Bangladesh in the late 70’s, it has managed to become the market leader in the soft drink category of the country. 7UP, with its tagline - ‘Mood ke din lemon-er lift’, had established itself as a drink which refreshes you and uplifts your mood. This provided a very functional and emotional core for the brand and helped in strengthening the brand’s perception has an uplifting healthy drink in the customers’ mind.
This year however the brand moved to a more emotional position with its proposition of “Mon Bole I Feel Up”, to celebrate the moments where we have an uplifting of the emotion and the spirit. Despite living with all the struggle and chaos, we are generally a happy nation filled with optimistic people. Bangladeshis have many unique events where we automatically feel ‘UP’; when we cheer for our cricket team fighting against all the odds, when we celebrate the coming of the new year or the advent of a new season, when we sight the moon before Eid, etc. All these are moments during which we have a festive feeling and which we look forward to celebrating. In associating the brand with these events, 7UP reaches into the emotional core of the youth of the country, who are very optimistic, upbeat, colorful and loud in general, and merges the functional insight of 7UP as uplifting and refreshing. So now 7UP not only uplifts and refreshes you, it also helps you to celebrate these festive moments and spread the cheer to those around you to make these moments even more special.
To build this new proposition a focused 360 strategic communication support was used to build up and strengthen this new positioning. A thematic TVC was produced by the renowned ad maker Mr. Amitabh Reza showing a young buoyant and bubbly boy traveling by a steamer which gets stuck in silt. Rather than being demoralized with the situation, his optimistic behavior helps turn around the whole negative scenario into a positive one using a catchy jingle and dance which becomes infectious and spreads to everyone on board. This message is supported by print communication highlighting the brand ambassador so that all communications are consistent. The Jingle of this TVC has also been unique as for the first time in the country, the Acapella style of music has been used for a major advertising campaign. Acapella uses sounds of instruments made by the mouth and is very challenging since it has to be kept to the instruments natural form. This challenge was overcome by Mr. Fuad Al Muqtadir, one of the popular music producers of the country, who worked side by side with Mr. Amitabh Reza to make the concept come to life. In keeping with its promise of refreshment, 7UP has maintained a visible presence during cultural occasions such as Pohela Boishakh and during Independence Day, setting up Refreshment Zones in different spots and serving chilled products to the visitors and refreshing them with cool mist fans to beat the heat accompanied by music to uplift the mood. During Ramadan, 7UP has positioned itself as a healthy drink for people after breaking their fast, which typically involves a very heavy meal consisting of deep fried food items, thus enhancing the food experience for people.This constant consumer engagement and its visibility in both ATL and BTL has managed to keep top of mind awareness and created an emotional value in the hearts and minds of consumers. These efforts makes 7UP a brand loved by its consumers and shows them that every downside has an upside in life and it is our perception of things which makes the difference.
