Pushing the needle on the milometer

07 Sep,2011

Company: MTS

Execution period: October 2010-December 2010

Aim and Objectives: Introduce the MTS-Reebok offer in Delhi and NCR

The Background: MTS has positioned itself as not just another mobile telephony company.

Data is the face of the brand and is summarised by Hi speed internet and smart mobile telephony.

The key idea that emerged after discussion: When the campaign was initiated, the question was, In the world of data, what do we stand for? What do we deliver? The answer was Speed, and a better and richer user experience.

The next step was to define the client’s TG which would be 18-29, SEC A, B who are driven by passion sports (cricket), music, seek to do newer things, willing to explore,lifestyle driven (always aiming for higher things) and impatient,hence wantingeverything here and now.

Solution: The client decided on an association of two popular brands to generate higher acquisition and attraction among the common target audience, the youth.

The obvious question here would be why associate with shoes? The choice was because shoes signify High Utility value, High perceived value and most importantly it’s a common factor used by all genders, class and segment among others.

Innovations: MTS decided to partner with Reebok and the choice for the brand was because it has:
