Everyone is surprised to see how brand Patanjali is giving a tough competition to other FMCG companies in India. It may look like an overnight success, but it’s not.

Why Patanjali brand is so successful? Is it because of its swadeshi brand or organic products? Evenbrands like Dabur and Himalayas were around for so many years selling Ayurvedic and Indian products. But, what is so special about Patanjali brand?

When I was looking at this company from the content marketing perspective,I observed an interesting connection with the brand’s success and content marketing.

I see yoga education as a form of content. Baba Ramdev started teaching yoga to a small group in 1995. Gradually, a small yoga group becamethe nightmare for FMCG companies in India.

Here is what I learnt about content marketing from the yoga guru Ramdev.

#1. Understand the needs of your user

Baba Ramdev understood the needs and issues of his audience by working personally with them.

Yoga is not a new concept, at least in India. Indians have been practising yoga from ancient times. What makes Baba Ramdev apart is the core understanding of audience and helping them with the right kind of yoga practices.

You can find a unique and easy way of using ancient yoga for curing ailments through the discourses and CDs of Baba Ramdev.

If you want to master content, then work closely with your users and create something valuable for their well-being.

#2. Content marketing takes time

Baba Ramdev have a cult like followership and it takes enormous amount of efforts and time to build the audience.

For first 10 years, they never thought of launching the products. They were just delivering a great content to help as many people as possible.

You have to be persistent and patient when building your audience through content marketing. You may hit a jackpot of virality in few days, like our viral video on Facebook, but it again takes time to repeat the viral campaigns on the regular basis.
