MUMBAI: Amazon.in in association with MTV is all set to welcome the festive season with an exciting content marketing initiative.To break the clutter around the festival season, Amazon has upped the ante where customer engagement is concerned by creating a one-of-its kind musical experience in association with MTV’s creative services offering for brands – MTV Brand Studio.

MTV Brand Studio was set up with the aim to provide brands with creative branded content and content marketing solutions to engage with their audience. With this tie up, the idea is to tap into the gaiety of the festive season by getting renowned musicians to kick it off with a music festival leading up to the launch of Amazon.in’s big-hearted sale, the Amazon Great Indian Festival – Tyohaar Bade Dilwala.

A first of its kind, the music festival which has been conceptualized and created by the MTV Brand Studio for Amazon India, is being hailed as the biggest content marketing initiatives undertaken by a brand in India this year. For the music festival, MTV has roped in some of the biggest and the most talented musicians to create a music festival which encapsulates the excitement of the festive season and gets the customers into festive mode. The music festival stage will host the likes of Badshah, Vishal and Shekhar, Sunidhi Chauhan, Papon and Shaan will be aired across MTV, MTV Beats, Colors, Rishtey, Colors Marathi and Colors Gujarati in both SD and HD on 30 September 2016 at 11 pm thus ensuring maximum reach across age groups through the combined reach of the mass, youth and regional brands of Viacom18.

“This year we recognize and celebrate the big heartedness that underlies festivities and have themed the Great Indian Festival as Tyohaar Bade Dilwala. We are delighted to celebrate this with our customers as much as with the entire ecosystem of our sellers, vendors and partners to bring festive cheer all over the country. We are delighted to partner with MTV Brand Studio who have conceptualized and created a beautiful musical experience for our customer. These marathon 120 hours of the event mark our continuing commitment to work closely with our partners and together bring the biggest sale yet for our customers, with the best ever shopping experience powered by Prime,” said Amazon India VP category management Manish Tiwary.

Speaking about the content marketing initiative, Viacom18 youth and English entertainment head Ferzad Palia added, “We at MTV have always prided ourselves on being catalysts of change for our partners. And with this thought in mind, we have launched a unique offering titled MTV Brand Studio to help address branded content and content marketing needs of our clients. With this exciting new initiative with Amazon, we are delighted that a mega e-commerce giant recognizes MTV’s creative strength and Viacom18’s reach and the value it can generate for them. As a part of this association, MTV Brand Studio has not only conceptualized and created an entire music festival for Amazon but we are also going to be simulcasting the show across our biggest channels reaching out to mass, youth and regional audiences.”

This year, Amazon India has reinvented itself in a truly disruptive manner. During this month of multiple festivals such as Navratra, Dussehra and Diwali there is a certain magic in the air that makes us feel a little more magnanimous than usual and encourages us to do things that otherwise we might not. This magnanimity manifests into small acts of benevolence not just towards immediate family members but is also towards friends and the society in general. These actions, small and big are a reflection of the Bade Dilwala (Big-Hearted) season in a way. Thus, MTV Brand Studio has helped fashion Amazon India’s campaign idea to build and celebrate this spirit of big heartedness during this festive season with the creation of a one – of – its kind music festival which leads up to the biggest sale of the season.
