Myntra, the leading online fashion portal, has launched a new campaign to showcase itself as a one-stop destination for all sportswear. The campaign revolves around the theme, “pick a psort, let Mynra do the rest”, implying that no matter what sport may be to your liking, Myntra has everything you need to wear and have for indulging in the sport.
Through the new ad campaign, Myntra is trying to portray itself as not just a one-stop destination for all your sports apparel and accessories, but also the fact that it is not just the category leader in many areas, it is also big on sports. And why not, when 30 per cent of Myntra’s business is sportswear, including sports footwear.
Moreover, you will not only find everything you need on Myntra, the portal will also help you fit the look, through a software. Myntra’s Shop by Sport and Shoe Finder software enables customers to shop for exactly what they want by filtering products as per their specific requirements. The platform has also added a feature called ‘Assisted Shopping’, wherein customers can dial in and speak to a support expert who will guide and navigate the customer through the sport shopping experience.
The campaign’s aim is to showcase the platform’s sports brand portfolio to reach out and leverage one of the fastest growing fashion segments in India. Being home to over 100 sports brands, including some of the most iconic brands, Myntra offers an unparalleled range of sportswear for people looking to engage in a wide variety of sporting activities.
On the campaign, Gunjan Soni, CMO & Head – International Brands Business, Myntra, had this to say: “Sportswear has been growing at 45% year-on-year and is one of the largest categories on Myntra. The Sports Campaign aims to unequivocally establish Myntra as the foremost destination for all your sportswear needs. A unique attribute for this category is need for advice and keeping this in mind, we have added some features to assist customers while shopping. We have also created a specialized sports store on the Myntra app to cater to the unique needs of customers and we are seeking to drive awareness for these offerings through this campaign.”
The TV Commercial: The TVC uses humour to show how a guy gets inspired to try a new sport each time he gets “hit” by the main object of each sport. Each time he changes his choice of sport, Myntra comes to his recue by providing him with the right asccessories to play that particular sport.
The TVC has been created and produced by Taproot Dentsu. Speaking on the occasion, Ayesha Ghosh, General Manger, Taproot Dentsu, said “As an e-commerce platform, Myntra’s edge lies in the width and depth of offerings, as well as the ease with which to access them. To launch their sport offering, we felt this route works best, as it covers the A-Z of sport and makes for an interesting way to display the sheer number of sporting brands that are available on Myntra. It speaks to anyone, whether serious about sport or not. While not the focus of the story, the service aspects of assisted shopping and shoe finder technology convey the required expertise for Myntra to take the high ground on sport.”
