Zee pulls out all the stops to get relaunch message across

MUMBAI: You can't miss the eyes. Splashed across hoardings in the city a mysterious woman, revealing only her forehead and eyes, asks: "Kaun hoon main (who am I)?" The question is also being asked in ad spots on all 15 channels of the Zee bouquet.

The campaign is part of a Rs 150-million marketing and promotional blitz across the north, west and east of the country in the lead-up to the unleashing of 24 new shows on Zee TV on 27 August (Monday), the relaunch date of the flagship channel of the Zee Group.

Next up on the promo trail are a series of "different but interesting" press ads that marketing director Partha Sinha refuses to divulge more details about, except to say that they will be appearing in various newspapers on Monday and Tuesday. Sinha says the press campaign copy is still being put together by Rediffusion-DY&R, the agency handling the Zee account.

Teaser ads have also been prepared for the FM stations of All-India Radio that are also set for take-off on Monday.

As for the hoardings themselves, they are to be pulled down on Sunday to be replaced with the full face of a woman representing the "young, vibrant personality" that is the new-look Zee.

Sinha is at pains to point out that 27 August represents not the end but the start of Zee's journey back to the top of the channel stakes, so any immediate turnaround of the channel's fortunes was not the aim.
