Pitfalls of the Campaign “ Only targeted to educate and internet literate masses.” Ignored the vast majority of the Indian population who lives in towns and villages and they are the ones whose voice counts, but they do not have the access or the privilege to internet.
The communication gives out a strong message and acts as a wakeup call for the billion people of this country- To awaken oneself, unite and bring about a change
The campaign brings home a fact that a partnership between Corporate and NGOs can help bring a lot of difference in the attitude of people
The consideration set could have been wider by better targeting of smaller cities and rural areas
Apart from TV commercials and internet marketing the campaign also should have included other types of marketing communication like print media, stand alone or events and road shows outside colleges and various other institutions leading to doubt clearance across over the table
Apart from all the advertising, campaign also could have concentrated more on tie-ups with election commissions to help the local and illiterate masses to understand the importance of the same.
The background idea and product promoted and message too is an excellent model with a common guy look yet an emphatic voice. Just the right age factor for saying that its our college going youth who needs to realise the importance and create an awakening
“ A country can never be a better place till it has better leaders”. The commercial has done its job.
No celebrity mania, no crores of location, nothing flashy about this commercial yet it has a way of saying it. The tomorrow of our country depends on our today. And the faster we wake up the better it would be!!!
