Brand Campaign: - Very funny television commercial and strategy is focusing on “sugar free” gum concept as well as your teeth also become strong. Despite of sugar free concept, normally mass consumers are consuming it and the word “sugar free” is use for diabetic people. And, today many other brands are entered in market as “Sugar Free” which are targeting to diabetic people in India. And, in television commercial, there is not conveying any kind of message which can relate.
Normally, confectionery brands are selling more on pan shop, Kirana stores or provision stores and now medical stores are also selling mint base candy & chewing gum too. So, it can say that “sugar free” concept may not match with target market as well as ‘Happydent Complete’ brand is more focus on mass than specific market.
