Aircel to launch PocketBuddies campaign

BENGALURU: Telcom player Aircel announced the all India launch of a new product ‘PocketBuddies- Srf n txt‘ in Bengaluru. The company plans to back this product with what would probably be its biggest mass media and BTL campaign this year, according to industry sources.

Since PocketBuddies is a value unlimited surfing and texting plan, the thrust would be on digital, online and social networks combined with television and other mass media communications including radio. The main TG of the campaign will be the youth of India. The campaign will go on for over a 4 to 6 week period and will be rolled out within the next 2-3 weeks.

Aircel has been spending big money towards branding. It had signed the most expensive sponsorship deal in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2011 to renew its sponsorship contract with the Chennai Super Kings- Rs 850 million for three years. It had signed on M S Dhoni, the captain of the Indian cricket team, as brand ambassador for a reported Rs 270 million for a three year period, also in 2011.

Speaking at the launch of PocketBuddies Aircel regional business head Hamir Bakshi said, "Youth has always been the primary focus at Aircel. They are a generation that has seen it all - from television to computers and now smart phones. The youth of today is digital savvy who likes to stay connected with their friends and family and peer groups on a second to second basis, PockeBudies will be received well by them."

Aircel also announced registrations for the Aircel College Brand Ambassador - Harvard Business Certification Program which will enable youth to hone their sales and marketing skills. Selected candidates will have to undergo on the job training at Aircel with the successful candidates having the opportunity to qualify for a special Harvard Business Certification Program.
