Despite being Nigeria’s market leader in the seasoning category, Nestle’s Maggi was witnessing severe onslaught from competition, which led to a significant loss in market share in the southern part of Nigeria despite increased marketing efforts in the region. Even though not as bad as the situation in the south, the competitive onslaught was also gathering momentum in the north.
Trial and recruitment for Maggi were also on the decline.
To this end, Maggi launched a variant that will soothe the taste palletes of the southern population. Task for Agency was to drive meaningful awareness for the new product and arrest the decline in the Southern part of Nigeria
From our numerous workshops and focus group discussions, we knew that awareness was not a challenge for the brand with over 98% total brand awareness. This meant we needed to go beyond a Reach planning to creating value for the consumer through our communication.
We also knew that Maggi over the years have hinged communication on heritage, which according to available data does not connect well with millennials which are the brand’s real targets.
We recommended that the brand creates communication materials that directly addresses the targets and take a multimedia approach to communicate brand benefits. Our approach was the use of a combination of offline and online media as well as strong consumer engagement via strategic sampling and strong BTL activations.
