Tata Sky’s an-ad-a-day approach casts its spell on the viewers

With the aim to achieve maximum reach, Tata Sky has launched a unique offering – Daily Recharge which allows consumers to recharge their DTH subscription just at Rs. 8 daily and get all their desired channels on that day.

 

The consumer in towns and villages are value conscious. This consumer in most regions still perceives the DTH category as premium and expensive, as compared to the local cable. Tata Sky’s Daily recharge in this case tackles this barrier by providing an entry to the world of quality television viewing at a price lesser than any MSO or DTH player in the world. Not only in small towns and villages, also the urban metros, Daily Recharge will become a huge incentive for consumers to shift from Analog to digital, thereby adding to the cause of digitization.

 

For such a unique product the campaign too had to be innovative. What was to be achieved was a behavioural shift, hence it went beyond the 30 sec format of advertising as it would have left the consumers with a new piece of information but would have failed at engaging them. The challenge was to amplify the everyday usage of the brand and thus the benefits associated with it.

 

Thus the product was launched with a unique love story that promotes everyday usage in an interesting manner. The promise: “Daily milenge toh pyaar to hoga hi” is a simple expression of the product benefit and the brand promise. To further reinforce daily usage the campaign evolves over multiple episodes. Set in a small town in Kashmir, the multiple episodes slowly unravels how the product works and intelligently amplifies the benefits of Daily Recharge, through Mannu (Prit Kamani) and Neelu (Himani Sisodiya) the protagonists of the love story.

Sukesh Nayak, Executive Creative Director, O&M Advertising said: “The product was innovative so the creative idea had to be innovative. For daily recharge we came up with an idea of daily love story. Every day the love story unfolds itself with a new film on national television. The campaign is interactive. The boy and girl update their social profile on daily basis as the story unfolds. People also end up helping the boy decide what to do next every single day to take the love story forward through an immersive digital experience.”

 

Commenting on Tata Sky’s new campaign launched with the IPL, Malay Dikshit, Chief Communications Officer, Tata Sky said: “For the first time, we have advertised during the IPL as it provides the continuity needed by the daily format of this campaign. The brand promise of ‘Daily milenge toh pyaar toh hoga hi” is a simple expression to stay connected with the viewers on a daily basis with our convenient offering. The brand needed to reach out and communicate to a set of audience that are spread across various geographies of the country and still have an affinity with the existing subscribers. O&M has beautifully brought alive this journey with the help of this addictive love story.”
