BIRTH OF CHIK This idea came in the mind of Mr. Ranganathan s father when Epsom salt came in 100 gm packets. They wanted that coolies and the rickshaw pullers to use products. But due to the lack of marketing strategies they could not market the concept well. It renamed as Chik Shampoo after the death of father.

PLACE Chik s objective was to expand the market, and get new consumers in the category. Focus- largely rural, value-conscious sections in urban areas were also attracted. Instead of using conventional distribution route they have created a sachet sales force that sales only sachet packets to small retailer including cigarette and pan shops. Distribution in rural areas is driven through innovative trade schemes & consumer offerings


There main focus is product reach. Separate hawkers' channel is created that moves from neighborhood to neighborhood. The hawker channels exist in all cities where they have a distribution network. They are moving fast towards post offices as well. They are placing products at post offices, products such as shikakai powder, shampoo and hair dye.

PROMOTION Ad strategy based on the powerful appeal of cinema among common masses. Innovative radio ads based on popular cinema dialogues, unlike plain radio jingles of competitors. they educated the people on how to use it through live touch and feel demonstrations and also distributed free sachets at fairs.



Also encouraged trial through a consumer scheme, where anyone could take any 4 empty shampoo sachets to a retailer and take home a Chik sachet free. Though more risky, this scheme paid off and more and more people began asking for Chik at their local retail outlet. They started giving 1 free Chik Shampoo sachet in lieu of 5 Chik Shampoo sachets only. Soon, consumers started asking for Chik sachets only.

RETAILER PROMOTION Apart from the service charges Cavinkare also gave retailers a Chik Sachet free for every 15 empty sachets they get from the consumer. They give special gift if dealer sale more products in a particular season. They also give discount on bulk purchasing.

CURRENT STATUS In the last 2 3 yrs the market share has come down though it is growing. It is mainly due to the anti dandruff shampoos in the market which from 0% has taken over 25% of the market. CavinKare doesn t have an anti dandruff shampoo yet. Ordinary shampoos constitute only 75% of the market of which Chik holds 20% market share. Chik is the largest brand in rural UP, AP, etc. and the number one in many other states as well
