  • We stay aware and ahead of changing industry trends and customer needs
  • We evolve by incorporating customers’ feedback, suggestions and even their vision
  • We explore and adopt exciting technological advancements to create systems that ensure comfort, quality and sustainability

Insight into the brand marketing strategies that have effectively penetrated consumers’ psyche, established a meaningful relationship with the target audiences and ensured positive brand perception.

Innovation being in our DNA, we naturally apply innovative thinking to communicate our brand proposition and offerings. Our arsenal is a 360-degree spectrum, a mix of traditional and new media. Some of the media we use to connect and engage with our audience:
Digital Print Radio Outdoor Social Events Road Shows f2f Presentations

We have also, through our innovative projects, earned a good percentage of word-of-mouth advertising. The perception of Brand DivyaSree in the industry and among end users and prospective customers is, therefore, highly positive.

Divyasree DevelopersHow has the brand extended its presence to the frontiers of internet advertising and social networking? What is the level of significance the brand accords to utilizing social media as a competitive edge?

In the digital age, the addition of internet and social campaigns to our communications repertoire was critical. It takes a while to get the mix right, but the payoff is considerable. We have been able to reach a much wider audience, and to craft much more targeted communication, quite cost-effectively. We are able to track and measure results like never before. Digital marketing also lends social currency to the brand.

Further, the digital space is an excellent proving ground, where we can test and refine communication strategies. So yes, it is highly significant.

Key marketing endeavours in the past decade that you feel have been landmark initiatives in reinforcing the legacy of the brands’ promise to influence consumer intent and enhanced the brands’ propensity to drive affirmative consumer action.

Our marketing endeavors are more focused on selling an idea rather than a property. We prefer our clients to buy into an entire concept. For instance, a commercial client would be getting productivity, fun at work and business success, along with an office space. Residential clients get more space and more life per square foot of the homes they purchase.

We involve our clients in initiatives like becoming “friends of the planet”, in “walking to work”, in “healthier is happier”. We actively listen to our customers, hear them, and act to meet their needs where possible. And our clients, always receiving more than they expected from us, become evangelists for Brand DivyaSree!

We have also, through our innovative projects, earned a good percentage of word-of-mouth advertising. The perception of Brand DivyaSree in the industry and among end users and prospective customers is, therefore, highly positive.

How has the brand derived strength from innovation as a sustainable differentiating strategy adding to long-term brand equity? Please provide few instances of measures implemented towards this goal.

Examples of the pioneering spirit that sets us apart:

  • We were one of the first developers to foray into the Government-Corporate Developer Partnership, building campuses for FORTUNE 500 companies in collaboration with the Government of India.
  • We have the unique distinction of being the first developer of major SEZs in two prominent South Indian cities.
  • We were first to deliver a captive power generation plant for an IT Park.
  • Though we only recently forayed into residential development, our innovations like Twin Apartments have already made us a forerunner in introducing new residential concepts.

Business Heads could identify training required by their teams, and internal/ external resources are selected to provide this training. Our collective intellectual property is thereby shared and enhanced.

Elaborate on your existing & potential CSR activities.

Our CSR Policy is designed to take social/ economic responsibility for the welfare and sustainable development of communities in and around the Company’s areas of operation, and it meets need-based requirements in other parts of the country.

As a company, we are conscientious about the environment in which we and our stakeholders live, work and play, and it is no wonder that we have been the recipient of several LEED certifications from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). In the pipeline is “DivyaTree”, a new initiative that will improve the quality of life of entire communities. For employees, a tree will be planted for birthdays, wedding anniversaries and on festivals. For clients, trees will be planted at ground-breaking ceremonies and handovers. We will also plant trees in and around our developments.

Another DivyaSree CSR initiative is our commitment to our extended team, in the form of regular Medical Check-ups conducted by certified medical professionals. These check-ups cover school children in the Workers’ Quarters, as a preventive and diagnostic measure to ensure their health and well-being.

Which area of social responsibility is more significant for your brand?

We intentionally focus on the environmental side in our CSR activities, while responding to other requirements as and when called upon to do so. We consider it a sacred obligation to preserve and conserve for the future. This is also evidenced by our advocacy of sustainability measures like flexible heating and cooling solutions, monitoring and regulation of power consumption, deployment of energy-efficient electrical appliances and sanitation fixtures, and several other ways to conserve and efficiently use natural resources.
