Maxus has the won the media business on Redbus.in in a recently conducted pitch process. Redbus.in, an online bus ticket-booking site, recently started advertising on television and other mass media. It was a highly contested pitch which saw the participation of Mindshare, Madison, ZO and Mudramax.

 

Sanchayeeta Verma, GM, Maxus South who is the key lead in the pitch, said, “Redbus is a highly reputed name in the travel space. We are very excited with this win and believe our role is to help our clients navigate and maximize the opportunities of change in an always-on, fully digitized media world. And we’re looking forward to partnering Redbus in their exciting journey towards exponential growth.”

 

Commented LK Gupta, Chief Marketing Officer, Redbus, “As an ecommerce travel brand launching in mass media for the first time, we were looking for the right blend of aggressive presence, yet delivering efficiently for the business. In Maxus, we found a partner that showed innate understanding of what our business needs are, and complementing it with sound planning and buying capabilities in media. We’re excited to embark on this exciting journey during which we’re sure Ajit and his team will be big contributors. ”

 

RedBus.in started in 2005, with a personal experience of the founder members. During Diwali of 2005, one of them wanted to spend the festival in his hometown. Since he didn’t know his schedule till the end, taking a bus was the only choice. He ran around town hunting for a ticket, but they were all sold out minutes before he reached the travel agents. That’s when he thought of the possibility of providing consumers the convenience of booking a bus ticket over the internet. The objective was two-fold – to ensure that they don’t have to leave the confines of their comfort to book a ticket, and to help them get a ticket when they need it the most.
