Agency Feature: Social Samosa
How do we define Litmus Branding?

Why we do it?
The tagline of Litmus Branding is: We Love Your Company.
Humble in approach, this tagline is reminiscent of 3 crucial belief systems of Litmus: Creativity, Culture, and Collaboration. It subtly hints at our ‘Why’, which is, aiming to achieve the best of creativity in combination with effectiveness.
How we evolve?
From eyeing the latest trending formats on digital platforms to doing our homework about the latest developments in design – the culture at Litmus cultivates intellectual curiosity. We have people coming together from different walks of life, contributing to creating communication paths for brands.
Social responsibility in social media
We firmly believe that our power and influence as a communications agency should not be misused. Keeping that in mind, we abstain from creating content around political issues. With both access and excess of information, it also becomes important for branding agencies to send out the right message. At Litmus, we avert from crafting anything that aims at tricking the consumer.
The need of the hour
Since there exists so much chaos around data security and privacy, the need of the hour is to plan ahead and ensure trust as well as transparency for users. These issues are deep-rooted within both the B2B and B2C markets, and when brands take steps for doing something about these issues, it has a positive impact on the consumer’s psyche.
What can brands do about it? Inculcate data management as well as customer-first initiatives into the bigger picture to demonstrate transparency, build trust and acquire greater breadth and depth of data. Automation can help businesses, too.
We learned the hard way. The right people are important for the job. Irrespective of how much one relies on digital technologies and new tools or software for working effectively, businesses need the right talent with the ability and knack to efficiently comprehend and interpret the needs and actionable steps for achieving mutually beneficial results.
Did we just share that?
Litmus Branding was appointed to enhance the digital presence of a luxury sanitary ware manufacturing company. While doing the research and reviewing their existing communication, we found the most irrelevant visuals in combination with randomly crafted copies. Their product (a toilet) was placed in the middle of nowhere with a beach background. In another post, a woman was sitting on a stool with her gown flowing in the air behind her, beating the laws of gravity. While we understand that promoting a sanitaryware brand can have its own set of challenges, their approach to maintaining their social handles made the entire team crack up in laughs.
The funny and sad thing here is how digital communication is taken for granted. Brands such as these hamper their reputation and still expect consumers to take them seriously.

We also believe that there will be more localization than globalization. The sponsored ads that we see on social media platforms will feature in regional languages so as to strike a chord with the target consumer.
Moreover, we have observed a lot of growth and acceptance for podcasts and web series. That too will be an efficient knowledge-sharing opportunity for brands who have a defined niche, and desire to promote themselves indirectly.
A day without Internet
Every second and fourth Saturday, the creative team at Litmus Branding has to survive a day without the Internet. As challenging as it may seem at first, it’s a practice we're trying to instill as part of our culture to unlock the true potential of an individual with the help of a well-stocked up in-house library, pro-active ideation, sketching, brainstorming, discussions, etc.
