Rebirth of Indulona

Slovak creams Indulona manufactured in Hlohovec are on the market since 1948 and are well-known all over Slovakia. Despite the fact that it has been a part of the top sales lists the brand did not organised any PR activities not had any elementary marketing – sales strategy. There was not any proper and organised PR, resulting in rare media outcomes and elemental communication without any conception.

The brand needed to refresh its identity, establish media cooperation and define its position, results, activities and visions. It was vital to introduce people that stand behind the brand and show the biggest added value – the pharmaceutical production quality.

A unique press conference full of first-hand experience for media and beauty bloggers was organised in the production enterprise of Indulona. We invited almost all Slovak media that were interested in the brand – nationwide news, economic, lifestyle, health, retail, marketing and regional media.

We agreed with the client on a three pillar communication: Primarily, we wanted to profile the brand Indulona as one of the TOP Slovak lovebrands. Secondary, we needed to strengthen the connection among Indulona, Saneca Pharmaceuticals Company and Wood & Company followed by the introduction of the brand after the re-branding and the new product line and emphasize the pharmaceutical product quality.

  • More than 50 journalists from all relevant media houses attended the kick-off press trip and all of them have covered the topic
