Clorox is an established brand in Canada. The brand has reached its maturity among the Canadian mainstream market and has to look beyond their current target group to further expand market share.

Clorox is an established brand in Canada with a suite of product solutions for all household cleaning needs ranging from kitchen and laundry to waste disposal. The brand has reached its maturity among the mainstream market and has to look beyond their current target group to further expand market share. There is an average of over 260,000 new immigrants coming into Canada each year.
From 2011 Census, Canada’s immigrant population reached 20.6% and rising. This ethnic market presents a viable opportunity for progressive marketers to capture additional market share. Balmoral was asked to develop an integrated marketing solution to build brand awareness. The goal was to continuously grow market share in the ethnic market and eventually become the first choice for household cleaning products.
This is a unique campaign that has one concept – the Supermom – with two unique approaches integrating each target group’s culture and nuances into marketing communications:
South Asian Mothers – South Asians love to host house gatherings inviting family and friends. The mother takes pride in keeping the house clean and tidy. Most importantly, being able to impress their mother-in-law makes them a Supermom.
Chinese Mothers – Tiger moms have hectic schedules. They are constantly on the go and strive to provide the best for their children. Being able to achieve this with the help of cleaning products that save time and money makes them a Supermom.
Public relations played an important role in building brand and product knowledge and connection with these two target groups.
