Abstract:
The recent development in Indian FMCG has provided a good opportunity for the marketers to understand the new consumer perspective. The established players of the market are struggling to retain their market share while competing with Baba Ramdev who has transformed from Baba to Bania. The purpose of this article was to investigate the impact of advertisements and brands of Patanjali which uses Baba Ramdev to promote the products for purchase intentions amongst buyers. The study surveyed 180 respondents in Belagavi city, Karnataka. The study found that consumers feel the creditworthiness of the product is enhanced when endorsed by Baba Ramdev. Baba Ramdev as an endorser of the brand Patanjali highly influences the attitude of the consumers towards the brand. In addition, the results reflect that with Baba Ramdev, consumers feel more engaged with the brand and it helps in creating long term relationship and commitment towards the brand.
