Tide was introduced in the year 1920 in United States of America. Prior to its debut Americans used soap flakes for their laundry which did not clean well, dulled colours and sometimes the soap left a ring of scum around the tub. This is when Procter and Gamble saw the need to introduce a product that would change the way Americans washed their clothes, and after doing research for a considerable period of time they came up with a synthetic detergent called “TIDE”.

Tide was the first heavy duty synthetic detergent and was quoted as “The first big change in soap making in 2000 years” by Neil Hosler.

Tide was first introduced by Procter and Gamble in Canada, USA and other countries in test markets in the year 1946.

In the year 2000 Procter and Gamble home products introduced Tide for the first time in India, which was then one of the largest selling detergents in the world.

Process of defining and sub-dividing a large homogenous market into clearly identifiable segments having similar needs, wants, or demand characteristics. Its objective is to design a marketing mix that precisely matches the expectations of customers in the targeted segment.

Urban: Tide had initially introduced its flagship detergent powder product as a premium product which was initially priced higher than its competitors. When tide was launched in India, it had already tasted success in many foreign countries including USA, Canada and Morocco. So the company was of the mindset that the high priced product would work here as well. But this was not to be as the demand soon fell after the heavy introduction advertisements. A positive aspect that came out from this was that Tide was registered in the minds of the people as a premium brand.

Page 10: Presentation for IMC(Tide Imc)

Rural: Tide observed soon that its policy of being premium was not

working efficiently as the consumers were moving to rival products due to the price factor. It therefore introduced sachets and detergent bars these were priced much lower than the original tide powder. Also the advent of Tide Naturals took place during this period which is a lot cheaper than the initially tide. It basically aimed to tap the rural and semi urban markets in the country.

Demographic Segmentation

Tide targets women aged between 18 to 54 years old. Over years, Tide constantly directs its marketing strategies to suit women of these ages. This is because when it comes to laundry, women belonging to this category hold the power to make decisions. Also, the housewives are considered to be an important part of the market segment as it is generally seen that the housewives are the ones who do the monthly shopping of the home products.

IMC Tools Advertising:

Tide uses a variety of methods to reach to its target audiences. They use a combination of print media, television and public hoardings to inform its customers about them. Tide has recently also started to use the internet to attract its customers. It has been somewhat successful to penetrate the urban and semi urban market in India. It has been able to reach a huge number of people using the medium of internet. One of the biggest advantages of tide deciding to advertise in the internet is that it can actually gain the dedicated personal attention of the customer while he/she is surfing the net.

A very good part about the advertising team of tide is its ability to connect with its potential audience. Apart from the normal day to day advertisements, Tide also comes up with different kinds of advertisement during different seasons and festivals. During the monsoon season Tide came up with an advertisement with a tagline “Barish mein chamakti hui safedi ho to Tide ho”. Similarly during the summers it came up with an advertisement which had the tagline “dhoop se chamakti hui white ho to tide ho”

• The campaigns have a desi touch and are well executed.

Tide has adopted a new promotional strategy which is helping it to gain a competitive advantage over its competitors. They changed their image from a mundane stain-fighting detergent and actually focused on the relationship between a woman and her laundry. Their new promotion strategy is to establish a bond between customers and the products they are using. This in turn will help them to gain customer loyalty to the product.

• Other creative promotional techniques used:

1. Advertising starring Shekhar Suman, ‘White Stripe’ Campaign and the ‘Bagbhan’ Commercial have help made Tide a household name.

2. Tide has created India's Longest Clothesline which ran around the famous Necklace Road on the perimeter of the historical Hussein Sagar Lake to illustrate the superior value that Tide offers consumers.
