MUMBAI : Laqshya Media Solutions (formerly known as OMI), the division of India’s leading OOH advertising company – the Laqshya Group, planned and executed a nationwide campaign for the launch of the new Wagon R Stingray. The car is the newest model launched by Maruti Suzuki and the purpose of the campaign was to create maximum visibility and interest in the car across the country. The campaign, which lasted an entire month, was one that involved a great deal of research and planning.
The brief provided by the client was to generate maximum impact by using hoardings and spaces in relevant locations. Even though visibility was a crucial factor in the client brief, the idea was to ensure that the brand and the product stood out in a stylish and tasteful way without being too intrusive. The campaign designed by the Laqshya Media Solutions team therefore included a mix of various media from billboards, gantries, unipoles, bridge panels and toll brandings.
Talking about the new campaign, Atul Shrivastava, the COO for the Laqshya Group, said, “We are happy with the efforts the team has put in to innovate and create a powerful OOH campaign for the new Stingray launch. The locations chosen have been excellent and ideal for such an important campaign. Since Maruti Suzuki has been a client with us for several years, we wanted to do something exceptional and different to make the launch a success.”
Vinay Pant, Media Head for Maruti Suzuki, also commented on the new Stingray launch campaign, “The brief for the campaign was to create good visibility through outdoor advertising for the Stingray Launch that would capture the attention of young, trendy people in the metros and even in the Tier II cities. We knew that creating such a large scale campaign would be quite a challenge but we are very pleased with the ideas and execution from Laqshya Media Solutions.”
Avinash Singh, Media Manager for Maruti Suzuki, also spoke about the outdoor media campaign executed by Laqshya Media Solutions. “Our aim was to ensure maximum visibility for the new Wagon R Stingray and I am happy to say that Agency has delivered well on that front. I am especially pleased with some of the unique innovations like the branding at the Noida toll plaza. We look forward to many more exciting outdoor campaigns in time to come,” he said.
The campaign made extensive use of as many as 250 media units across 20 cities, at main arterial routes, high traffic zones and key touch points.
