MUMBAI: Yatra.com, an online travel portal, has announced the launch of its TV campaign bringing back Salman Khan as Mr Yatra.
The campaign emphasises on leisure holidays and showcases the best deals that will be available to the consumers this season at Yatra.com.
An extension to the previous TV campaign, Yatra.com has announced the launch of its new 360 degree marketing campaign. This campaign focuses on deals in holiday packages, another offering from the Yatra.com’s portfolio.
The multimedia campaign has been conceptualised by McCann.
Yatra.com head of marketing and strategic relations Pratik Mazumder said, “Yatra.com’s new campaign combines the excitement of a traveler with a delight of a hassle free booking at Yatra.com, offering unmatched deals. Post the success of our last campaign; we wanted to highlight the brand promise of leaving no stone unturned in getting our customers the best holiday deals.”
McCann GM Ranjeev Vij said, “Post a remarkable success of our first campaign, this time our focus was to build recognition for Yatra.com’s best price offerings and also increase traveller’s likelihood of booking tickets through Yatra.com. In an attempt to overcome brand’s share of voice limitations and create necessary buzz amongst travelers, it was imperative that the campaign conveyed our messaging in the most appropriate manner. We believe the approach we adopted while crafting the campaign was totally in synergy with the brand’s requirements.”
According to Vij, the new campaign presents Khan as “cool”, “in-control” and a forceful “Yatra.com man” where his motive is to get the best price for his customers. “Having done it for ticketing, now Salman is out to commit the best holiday packages to Yatra.com customers in yet another humorous commercial," he added.
The campaign will be promoted through print, online, e-marketing and mailers.
