‘Say yes to better’ health and wellness with Mannings and DDB Group Hong Kong

HONG KONG — Mannings, the largest health and beauty chain in Hong Kong, has launched a brand campaign in Hong Kong and Macau, “Say Yes to Better,” reflecting a new direction for the brand with health at the heart of it. The new positioning has been developed in partnership with creative agency DDB Group Hong Kong and is designed to increase relevance and foster long-term growth for the brand.

The brand platform was inspired by consumer research, which showed that despite the pandemic, consumers are less concerned about becoming ill and more conscious and proactive about improving their health and wellness in general. However, while people may want to be healthier, research also showed that they weren’t always making the best decisions to support that.

“Say Yes to Better” reflects that desire to improve, be it from “sick to healthy, healthy to fit, beautiful to confident, or well to better,” while offering a gentle reminder from the brand to make good choices.


The campaign features an online video that captures several daily moments where Hong Kongers can “Say Yes to Better,” with Mannings able to support these choices.

Mannings are committed to supporting all Hong Kongers to embrace a healthy lifestyle by offering a wide range of quality health care, personal care, skincare, and baby products. The retailer’s team of community healthcare professionals, including registered pharmacists, dietitians, and health and beauty advisors, are also pleased to offer expert advice and free consultation.

Kayley Hui, Marketing Director, Health & Beauty, Hong Kong, Macau & China at DFI Retail Group, commented, “Staying healthy is a conscious choice, and as a brand, we want to empower our customers to make good decisions while supporting them with our quality products and professional services. Our vision is to be the trusted curator for everything health and beauty. This new platform is not just a new tagline, but a strong commitment to partner with all Hong Kongers along their health journey.”

Creative Director at DDB Group Hong Kong Cherry Wong added, “As one of Hong Kong’s largest health and beauty retail brands, Mannings has a vast and diverse community of customers. We wanted to connect with them in a more meaningful way, and this platform not only talks to a very universal insight, but also highlights Mannings’ strong capability in the health and beauty space. We are excited to continue to build on this positioning in the future.”

The integrated campaign marks the start of the brand revitalization. It will run for one month, with the video accessible online and on social platforms. Train station ads, print ads, and a considerable in-store presence will help to amplify reach and impact. There will also be a Wellness Truck touring the city to connect with Hong Kongers and give away health and beauty gift packs supporting consumers in making those healthy choices.
