Brand Introduction:

Nykaa Man is an online beauty retailer! It offers over 1000 brands and 1,00,000 products owning a lion’s share of the online beauty market at 33%. The intent of social media branding was to create an online men community and subtly introduce them to the vast category. It is a brand of its kind and makes grooming fun and relatable. It shines most amid the men’s grooming products website/application. 

Objective of the awareness program:

Nykaa Man is a brand that keeps every men’s grooming essential under one roof, it aimed to be a community that focuses on men, which is its target audience. It wanted to get ahead of the traditional product-centric page, it wanted to be the elite one. 

The main objective was to curate a new age page for the ‘guy of today’ who could open up and begin a conversation about personal hygiene, health, grooming, and styling. And, also encourage them to purchase the products. 


The major challenge for Nykaa Man was that men aren’t usually into the idea of the grooming page. They prefer more memes, tech content, or informative pages, unlike females. The first step, that is communication was hard to achieve as a lack of awareness about basic grooming products and assuming that they know all about it persisted. 


  • The strategy was to make a content twist! Ditching the old-school ideas of normal branding through pitch-lines, they took a more awareness-based perspective in their content. And, they did it by showcasing usability, and benefits of buying the products.
  • The content was curated in a twisted and more spiced way to get more engagement. They included memes, stop-motions, and amazing content copies to get likes, shares, and most importantly drive the entire attention towards sales of the products through influencer marketing. 
  • Moreover, the content was prepared by taking into account the trends. 
  • The videos were shot by influencers like Viraj Gehlani, Ankush Bahughana, BeerBiceps. 
  • The conversations were based on real-life issues like acne, patchy beard, dandruff, body odor, and other issues that everyone experiences. The range was from nutrition tips with a smoothie solution to styling, health, fitness, and most importantly grooming. 
  • Nykaa Man even mingled the right amount of sexually educative content with products. This eliminated the taboos. 
  • Regular influencer marketing with videos like health or meme, or even small talks. This drove immense traffic over the website. 
  • They also established DM space as an accessible Google Search Bar for every Nykaa Man follower.
