The foremost reason behind this extensive campaign and collaborating with so many mommy influencers is to share the messaging among women that it is completely safe to conduct tests at home. The step to engage regional influencers was taken to break the stigma and lack of awareness around pregnancy, which is still prevalent in the smaller cities and rural areas. With the help of content creators and influencers, the brand aims to disseminate customized messages for suiting the dynamics and temperament of the audience, which will help a woman better associate and relate to them.
The engagement with the local audience is not just for the promotion of the brand but also champions social messaging by sensitizing and educating people around the issues related to pregnancy.

In this endeavor, we want to take our product deeper into the country for presence across PAN India, for which we resorted to regional influencers to expand our foothold in the Southern and other markets.”
