J .K. Wall Putty is a whitecement-based fine powder that provides an ideal base for beautiful walls, giving the smoothest surface for luxurious and silky interiors. It is damp-resistant and provides a smooth finish for further application of all kinds of paints.
There is concerted hard work behind the brand building exercise. J.K. Wall Putty has carved a niche for itself through various multifaceted and innovative branding and communication initiatives including 360 degree media campaigns, consumer contact programmes, online promotion, public relations, etc.
In 2010, the think tank at J.K. Cement came to the conclusion that apart from anti-flaking, the other benefits of J.K. Wall Putty like minimum paint usage and smoothest and most beautiful surfaces were also required to be communicated to the consumers and the target audience, the painters. After rounds of extensive research, an important consumer insight was unearthed that the painter was the most important influencer in the buying decision. Thus began the journey of the brand ambassador, Chhutkau Painter – the winner of the National Wall Painting Championship. Not only did he gain wide recognition, he also effectively connected with the target audience, the painter community. To project the average painter as a Hero and Champion, an innovative campaign was created; showing a National Wall Painting Competition where the Brand Ambassador (the user of J.K. Wall Putty) emerges a winner in the contest by defeating other contestants using POP, chalk mitti, etc.
Ever since, Chhutkauji has only grown in fame and stature, first opening his own Wall Painting Academy and now being invited to judge the World Wall Painting Championship. The brand has scaled new heights along the journey and the success story continues!
The positioning strategy of J.K. Wall Putty has given a clear and differentiated edge to the brand over competition, which has received a positive response from the dealers, painter community and end consumers alike.
