Selfies " are the heart of " Uniliver's consumer generated " product marketing strategy

How consumer generated strategies is powering Unilever marketing strategy

visual marketing strategy

Unilever's  new strategy is based on " inviting consumers to send in their selfies  and product related photos to instagram and Facebook and  syndicating that content for use by retail websites .Unilever is the first consumer brand to  tap into " user generated " strategy  and as a visual tool to help brands stand out from the clutter

Unilever’s Simple Skincare brand is using a new service from photo management vendor "Olapic" to pass on photos shoppers send it from social media to retailers selling the brand’s products. This helps  retail outlets to understand consumer behavior, and understand whats influencing certain skincare brands to sell more 

According to Unilever's North American  eCommerce head  Doug Straton "Consumers trust current users of a product more than something a brand may put forward through traditional assets,”. By sharing the content with four sites—, RiteAid,com, and—more consumers are exposed to that content.

Unilever India's Kan Khajura Tesan, Digital Campaign Goes Viral

Until a few years ago most companies looked at online as yet another platform to air their TV commercials. This is not the case any longer. FMCG companies are looking at digital media as a separate platform to engage with their target audience. 

  •  Perhaps the most successful digital campaign in the country by an FMCG company has been run by Hindustan Unilever (HUL). The consumer goods giant last year launched a free mobile radio entertainment channel called Kan Khajura Tesan, which can be loosely translated as Centipede Station, in Bihar and Jharkhand.
  •  To access the content, a mobile phone user gives a 'missed call' - the call here gets disconnected automatically after two rings - on a given number. The user is then called back and gets to listen to songs, jokes and, of course, HUL advertisements. The idea behind the campaign was to reach out to consumers who do not have access to TV, radio or the print medium but have a mobile phone. 
  • Over the past seven months the radio station has reached out to more than nine million subscribers and HUL ads have been heard 85 million times, the company says. HUL now plans to roll out the channel in other regions.
