Kamaii Ki Kahani – Marketing a Home-Cooked Food Ordering & Delivery App

Flora Fountain is not new to marketing and promoting food brands digitally. Some of our highly successful campaigns as a social media marketing company in Ahmedabad, India have been for prominent restaurant chains, cafes and hotels.

But, Kamaii is different. It was not just another food ordering and delivery app. It is a novel idea, which has come to fruition thanks to the efforts and intentions of the client and their team of home chefs, to make food accessible to the multitudes left wanting post-pandemic. However, when Flora Fountain was on-boarded as one of the best digital marketing companies in Ahmedabad, the audience was yet to see and experience the concept.

Here’s how we made it happen: Kamaii ki Kahaani.

ABOUT KAMAII – THE CLIENT

Kamaii is the brainchild of Darshan and Stuti Jani, first-generation entrepreneurs and venture capitalist couple, who wanted to bring together the talented home chefs of Ahmedabad and the food-loving Amdavadis who crave and need a delicious home-cooked meal, but somehow do not have access it.

This mobile platform allows home chefs to create a profile and put up theri homemade meals and snacks. Customers looking to enjoy homemade food for lunch, dinner or snacks, can then place their orders on the app.

Once the order is received, the Kamaii home chefs, known as Kamaii Food Partners, start preparing the food from scratch using fresh ingredients. As soon as the order is ready, a Kamaii Rider Partner picks up the order from the Kamaii Food Partner’s home and delivers it to the doorstep of customers.

The variety of food options on the app include Gujarati meals, Punjabi thalis, Rajasthani cuisine, freshly baked goodies, popular local snacks & even desserts.

This app is available for both Android and iOS users and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and App Store.

OBJECTIVES OF THE BRAND

A lot of homes lost their source of earning post-pandemic. One of the main objectives of the brand Kamaii is to provide a platform for home chefs to use their cooking skills and to earn extra income or “Kamaii” for their family. The other fallout of the pandemic was that a lot of people, such as students, senior citizens and even office and factory-workers were left without access to a fresh, home-cooked meal, which is a basic necessity. Through Kamaii, the brand also tries to solve this problem of accessibility to healthy and fresh home cooked meals..

According to the client, Kamaii brings people together for the joy of enjoying fresh homemade meals that are prepared with passion!

CHALLENGES WITH THE BRAND/OBSERVATIONS BY FLORA FOUNTAIN

Brand name connect. The end-user had to understand the idea behind the name itself. Kamaii, in Hindi and Gujarati, means ‘Earning’. While the app is actually a food ordering app. So, we had to decipher and break down the connection for the user.

Brand name searchability. There was an additional ‘i’ at the end of the name, which was something not many knew about, and made it difficult for people to find it on the various app stores.

Inconsistency in brand messaging. Every platform had a different description for the app and the brand. This could be misleading for potential customers, partners and clients.

Communicating to different audiences. Kamaii had two audiences it needed to target. One needed to target home chefs so they could be made aware of the platform, its earning potential and on-boarded, second was the end-user who had to be made aware about the app usage, download and USPs such fresh made-to-order home-cooked food. There is also a third smaller TG and app connecting delivery partners. The messaging to each of these groups was being done the same way, without speaking to any of them.

Strong brand voice/identity missing. Because of the undefined target audience, improper language use and inconsistency in messaging, the brand lacked a uniform and distinctive voice. Right from the messaging on social media to the app bios and descriptions on multiple platforms, to the videos uploaded on YouTube.

Digital Branding Solutions provided by Flora Fountain as the best social media marketing company in Ahmedabad, India

  • Brand Positioning
    We redefined the way the brand is being positioned in the market. Since people were confused by the unique name and the similarity in the services offered to that of other food delivery apps, we focused instead on the human touch, clearly demarcating the mission, vision and services of the brand across various digital platforms.
  • Social Media Marketing
    Social media was one of the first places where we swung into action, which gave the brand a fresh look and feel through upgraded and consistent designs and simple but well-written content.
    We reintroduced the brand, showcasing the people behind Kamaii, the home chefs, and the various Indian homemade delicacies they prepare every day and even for special occasions.Kamaii De Thaali campaign

    One of the more popular campaigns we ran recently was the De Thaali campaign, centered around one of their most ordered products on the app, the lunch thaali, by running a quirky yet relatable series of posts around it, highlighting the low price point, the various types of thaali and the various offering available in a thaali.

  • Content clean up, improvement and creation
    One of the most important parts of this exercise was the clean-up and improvement of the content put out for the brand, across platforms. Right from the bio on Instagram, to the messaging that goes out on the app through notifications, we rewrote and restructured the entire brand communication strategy for Kamaii.The reason was simple, our research revealed that people who use the app aren’t looking to read lengthy prose, they simply want information about the product, and easy to understand messaging.
