Aircel Marketing Strategy

AIRCEL INNOVATIVE MARKETING CAMPAIGN - August 18th, 2009
________________________________________
Aircel was launched in select circles in Maharashtra early this month; and the launch was accompanied by a variety of innovations and attractive outdoor promotions.

Be it the ‘Just arrived’ boxes at the airport, the projection of the logo on the landmark Gateway of India or the IPL Scoreboard put up at the Mahim Causeway, Aircel has managed to create an unbeatable buzz.

Interestingly, a lot of its innovations are useful. For instance, the IPL scoreboard enabled commuters at the busy Mahim Causeway to keep track of the latest scores.

Recently, Aircel put up an inflated raft at Milan Subway in Mumbai, which sees a lot of flooding every year. The message simply said, "In case of emergency, cut rope".

The raft came in handy on July 13 and 14, when heavy rains lashed the city. People stranded at the subway used the raft to move around and men in Aircel branded T-shirts were also available to help commuters. The idea was appreciated so much that Aircel will now take it to Delhi and Kolkata as well.

The raft idea was conceptualised and executed by Primesite, Mudra group's OOH division, for Aircel. Aneil 'Andee' Deepak, senior vice-president, Primesite says, "The trigger for this idea was the news that Mumbai will witness the highest tides in the last 50 years and the Met Department's subsequent admission that Mumbai will flood and that they can do nothing about it, given the city's infrastructure. Aircel relishes its role as a solution provider, rather than a mute bystander. We decided to do something about it, and hence, the idea."

Andee attributes Aircel's innovative approach throughout to the fact that the brand is, quite literally, the 12th man to enter the telecom market. "If the 12th man has to make it to the team, then he has to do things that'll get people talking and innovation was the only way."

He shares that ideas will drive Aircel in OOH.

    What is Offensive Marketing? When more than one company offers the same kind of product, each company only receives a percentage of all sales of that kind of product. This percentage is called a “market share,” and any effort to take some of the market share away from one company and bring it to another is called an offensive marketing plan. (See also Flanking Marketing) In the above case of the motorcycle business of the mid-to-late 20th century, the Harley Davidson Company saw its market share…
