bindass bets on social media for marketing 'Video Wars' show

MUMBAI: As the launch for its first daily format show Video Wars draws closer, Disney?s youth entertainment channel bindass is going full throttle to create a buzz around the show. This time though, the channel is leaning heavier on the social media and on ground engagement initiatives rather than the tried and tested ATL routes of television, print, radio and outdoor.

Video Wars is a reality show that involves five contestants cataloguing a day in their life in the form of a video diary, which will then be aired for the viewers to see. Based on the content shot by the contestant, the viewers get to vote for their favourite and the least popular contestant will be eliminated at the end of the week. A fresh contestant will take his place the next week.

Says Disney UTV executive director youth channels media networks Nikhil Gandhi, ?Video Wars is a show that is in line with our ?Rest Less. Do More.? positioning as it empowers the youth with a camera and go out there and get famous. Since the show deals primarily with user generated content (UGC), we decided to focus on media like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The aim is to engage with the youth wherever they are. We all know how active the youth are on social media.?

bindass will launch the Facebook Stamp Campaign from 19 November along with a YouTube in search video campaign which will go live in the second week of the show.

Apart from the digital space, bindass is targeting on ground engagement opportunities to interact with the youth. ?The idea is to take the youth play beyond television. We want to be where the youth of today is ? from college campus to concerts to cafeterias,? says Gandhi.

Recently, the channel collaborated with the Enrique concert in Delhi and Pune where people wearing video ?heads? were deployed in order to create visibility for Video Wars. During the NH7 Weekender, bindass set up Video Wars booths where ?Weekenders? could shoot themselves and audition to appear on the show.
