MUMBAI: While there have been many discussions around the reach and effectiveness of mobile in the marketing eco-system, not many brands have captivated this platform for impressive communication.

Looks like it’s time to rethink. HUL has gone ahead to prove that mobile marketing in India too can create a lot of noise. ‘Kan Khajura Tesan,’ a campaign rolled out by HUL was an effort to reach out to the media dark areas. ‘The Kan Khajura Station’ a 15 minute free, on-demand, entertainment channel introduced by HUL was a service where people could call and get entertained for free.

The brand created a new media through a rudimentary mobile phone that brought people out of media darkness and connected them with the world. According to the brand, this activity was done at a cost of under 4 US cents per person. This campaign was executed in Bihar and Jharkhand.
