MUMBAI: Kids are the ready and excited end-consumers of Voot Kids but parents often scale down their enthusiasm by being gatekeepers. The journey of any marketer to promote a product like this and growing from zero to 50+ advertisers is not easy.

Encouraging the kids to access such a platform as well as making parents comfortable with handing over their phones to them remains crucial. And, how better can this gap be bridged with lucid storytelling and a catchy musical anthem that grabs the attention of kids and parents alike.

Banking on three things- television content, kids and originals- this OTT platform observes 15 per cent share of the overall traffic coming from kids. Riding high on kids content behind it’s viewership and user growth, Voot has launched a new TVC capturing how kids from across India have taken to the new way of life and turned ‘goody goody’ in their ultimate quest to earn Voot time.

“The loyalty factor from kids is very high. They are obsessive about characters. So, everything has to revolve around the character that they like. The amount of money parents spent on these characters is huge. We looked at the top 10 characters that the kids like and we built on that,” said Viacom18 Digital Ventures COO Gaurav Gandhi.

The special anthem Bachche Hum Goody Goody Banenge, Voot Kids Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karenge! will roll out across all major kids channels and digital  platforms on 30 September.

With 10 characters to be added to its 100+ character library, the platform will focus more on originals in 2017.

The time spent by kids on Voot is approximately 30 minutes on an average while they spend close to 45 minutes on weekends and 25 minutes on weekdays. Unlike the traditional, linear from of content consumption wherein the peak viewing of kids content happens during the early evening; Voot Kids in contrast witnesses a peak that coincides with the prime time on national GECs wherein the mobile gets passed onto the kids as the parents take control over the remote. “The primetime for kids on our platform is 9 pm. Adding to that, Sundays are huge for us wherein the consumption just jumps upto 40 per cent compared to any other day,” added Gandhi.

“Kids are the masters of negotiations. They know what they want and how to get it. But the catch is that the parents know these antics and are willing to evolve the kids if they see a good behaviour being displaced by them. The communication that we have created was to showcase this varied but interesting dynamics between the parents and their kids. You will see the kids doing ‘goody goody’ things in this film. The music and anthem of the campaign is something each one of us can relate to as we have grown up listening to this popular song,” adds Viacom18 head marketing and partnerships Akash Banerji.

The advertisers too are lapping up this opportunity on Voot Kids with open arms as they seek to connect and engage with this mobile-first generation who are the influencers of today and the decision makers of tomorrow. It has close to 50+ advertisers on board out of which 10 are especially for Voot Kids. Targeted at an age group of 1-12, Voot plans to launch a tablet app in a week’s time followed by a campaign on the same.

“We feel that this segment is only set to grow, both in size and influence, and we want to be the default digital platform of choice for kids entertainment. Our endeavour is to build a parent-approved kids-favourite brand, and we will continue to develop exciting campaigns and dial up engagement with this community even further,” added Gandhi.

The campaigns will be promoted across Viacom18 network and will be heavily leveraged on social media.

About the campaigns: The campaign comprises multiple TVCs featuring lots of kids. The films depict kids’ heroics as they happily embrace the very tasks that kids are usually known for not doing willingly.

The films showcase a range of situations where the kids turn to their ‘goody goody’ best - a boy getting out of the bed in the night to brush his teeth unprompted, another young boy with spiky hair combing it vigorously to turn it into a good-boy hairstyle, a cute little girl goes onto finishing the very last drop of milk from a glass, a young girl wiping clean the wall that once was her canvas, another boy is seen tidying up his bed and surprisingly a boy denying potato chips being offered while sitting on a park bench. What follows is a happy smiley parent handing over their mobile phone to their kid for a well-deserved Voot time. In the background of each of the two films you hear the chorus of kids singing this catchy Voot Kids anthem and reciting their favourite characters for whom they’re turning to this new way of life. The closing line captures the core thought very aptly - Bachche Hum Goody Goody Banenge, Voot Kids Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karenge!
