How have you impacted the businesses of your consumers?

Through the blend of innovation and creative thinking, Kilowott has crafted customized solutions for numerous clients, some in the Fortune 500 list, and has helped them benefit from superior customer and employee engagements.

I can outline two occasions where the organisation helped clients with digital solutions to execute their customer acquisition and engagement strategy.

In the first instance, we helped a reputed Dubai based group of companies with a global workforce of 3500 plus employees expand its global hospitality portfolio by creating bespoke digital operations and marketing solutions. 

The multi-million dollar global conglomerate that has a chain of luxury vacation properties, then present only in Dubai and Bali were looking for a partner to aid their expansion into new markets across the globe. They needed help in three areas: Rebranding, Customer Acquisition and Building Loyalty

The company was looking to work with a service partner that could not only help create the website but also deliver continued marketing support to increase brand awareness in the new markets alongside retaining and engaging the existing customers. 

The solution required the creation of a global messaging which could harness the existing customer base and drive loyalty. Being an agile, eager agency renowned for disruptive digital technologies, outcome-driven and creative solutions, Kilowott matched their search. We worked closely with them in a consultative manner to understand their objectives and precisely assess their stakeholder needs.

The solution we created was based on a deep understanding of the markets where the client planned to expand. The research and insights were then used to undertake the rebranding exercise. It enabled us to create a messaging foundation, and establish a communication hierarchy for website development. 

Another of our clients was the ‘Wendell Rodricks’ brand, a renowned fashion label from India. The fashion designer label wanted to expand their global digital reach and improve online presence with youth as a target segment. Wendel Rodricks has been an icon, pioneer and visionary in many ways. Hailing from Goa, he was deeply connected to the culture of the state. The world lost a wonderful human being with his passing away a while ago. We are deeply grateful to be able to have worked closely with him and his team.   

In order to build the desired online presence for the client, the design and creation of a custom-made website were undertaken in collaboration with Kodework, the web development agency we had at the time. In 2020 we realigned some of the verticals including Kodework into a single entity – Kilowott.  Subsequently, a website with press articles, blog posts, and information about the client’s latest collections was launched. It also had a fully functional E-shop integrated into it. In essence, a feature-rich website offering a blend of a museum and a boutique was created for online visitors. 

The brand awareness was boosted by digital campaigns to connect with luxury and slow fashion enthusiasts. Social media marketing, brand positioning and ad campaigns were used to drive traffic to the website.

While designing the website and creating social media strategies, it was felt that the client’s social media presence was not strong and impactful enough. Thus, alongside generating the traffic for the website, a holistic revamp of the existing social media pages of the client was carried out. The content’s aesthetic appeal was beautified to match the impact that matched the brand’s work. A combination of grids and minimalistic colour palettes was deployed to transform the ‘brand’s look on Instagram.

These are just two of the examples of how we used market insights, client preferences, business objectives, creativity and cutting-edge technologies to ensure that our clients stay ahead of the competition.
