Vodafone showcases winning spirit on OOH
By Bhawana Anand - October 10, 2014
The objective of the campaign was to communicate Vodafone's new offering and in the process activate the dormant subscribers and upscale the ticket (recharge) value per recharge
"Pre-paid consumers are key for Vodafone and the campaign was aimed at increasing the frequency of recharge and ticket value. The outdoor communication was augmented with several innovations which became talk of the town,â€ said Ronita Mitra, Senior Vice-President, Brand and Consumer Insights, Vodafone India.
Various innovations were designed to communicate the message in different cities. In Mumbai, two mobile vans were used to create a larger-than-life installation of hundreds of actual trophies on the entire billboard of two vans to convey the brand communication of'everybody wins'. To supplement this billboard innovation and to establish an immediate connect with the TVC, two boxers were put into action atop the mobile van platform. They kept enacting boxing punches when the cross-roads saw huge traffic flow. Also, to communicate the other brand proposition of "Higher the recharge, Bigger the prizeâ€ two stilt walkers, of two different heights carrying placards with the brand communication, were pressed into action at Nirmal Lifestyle, Mulund. They signified different levels of recharge options. The stilt walkers interacted with the crowd and offered photo opportunities with them.
A huge trophy was installed inside DB Mall in Bhopal where shoppers posed with the trophies on the victory stand for a picture. The shoppers posted these on social networking sites which gave the brand message more shelf life. In Chennai, LED illumination was used on a billboard. In Lucknow, mechanised cut-outs holding the trophy were installed on a billboard and in Pune, backlit trophy cut-outs were placed on a billboard.
"The campaign was designed keeping in mind the target audience & a mix of media was taken to reach the TG in the most cost-effective manner. Innovations are key to this campaign and we have tried to replicate the concept of "everybody winsâ€ and "bigger the value of the recharge, bigger the benefitâ€ in these innovations be it the trophies or the boxing arena,â€ said Amit Sarkar, Chief Operating Officer, Kinetic.
