Sudhir Pai, CEO, Magicbricks, explained, “This is a 360-degree campaign. The idea of using OOH and radio was to amplify the brand message in all mediums and communicate with consumers in the relevant environment. We have emphasised on the relevance, localisation and topicality of the medium, so that the consumer connect is stronger.”

“On radio, we had a musical ad – the idea being communicating with consumers in the medium that they are on and in the same medium’s tonality,” he added.

Commenting on the creative strategy for the OOH campaign, Pai said, “For OOH, our creatives are topical to markets/ cities/ localities and relate to consumers’ everyday experiences. For example, the Noida creative call out is ‘choose between Noida or Greater Noida’, while the Bangalore creative says, ‘Whitefield vs Sarjapur’.”

He further said, “We have given strong reasons for consumers to look at our PPH advertising – if you are stuck in the traffic, you will find a hoarding urging you to choose to live near your office, or if you travel long distances to work – for example, Noida to Gurgaon or vice versa, our hoardings call out – why travel to Noida/ Gurgaon everyday, choose from over 10,000 properties.”
