1. Hutch-Vodafone

Vodafone was greeted in India with Hutch Is Now Vodafone campaign in 2007 after it acquired Hutchinson. Vodafone went in for an overnight transformation of the brand by targeting all points of purchase. From customer care centres to sim card packets and sales executives, everything was turned into red, overnight! To advertise the same, they tied up with Star India by playing Hutch is now Vodafone ads during every commercial break on Star Plus for 24 hours. This ensured maximum recall among the audience.

In the six years of its existence, for the first time, Snapdeal went for a change in logo and its corporate identity in 2016 to manage its dropping sales position in the presence of Amazon and Flipkart. They tried to generate brand awareness through the new positioning and only recently, they've also come up with a new tagline, Unbox Zindagi. Their package boxes have been changed to red but they have an uncanny resemblance to Vodafone boxes, so we aren't really sure if the transformation is going to strike the right chord.

Airtel happens to be a brand that has changed its logo quite a number of times. And it also changed its image from being the network that connects people to the brand that has a lot of offers for the smartphone-obsessed youth. Time to time, Airtel has always tried to position itself as the friendly brand and might we say, been pretty successful at it. We all remember the Har Ek Friend Zaroori Hota Hai campaign, don't we?

7 Laws of Success inspired from Steve Jobs
  • Follow your passions.  Without it, any rational person would give up.
  • Find your noble cause. For Jobs, making computers accessible to the average person wasn't just a business strategy; it was a calling.
  • Simplify everything and focus on the gems. You have only so much energy and attention to give to projects or projects.
  • Unleash your creativity. Creativity doesn't just happen. Expose yourself to ideas outside the field you're working in.
  • Create "insanely great" customer experiences. Hire for personality and culture fit first.
  • Don't introduce products; tell a story.
  • Sell dreams, not products. Your audiences don't care about your product, company or idea. They care about themselves, their hopes and their dreams.
