Dhoni Browse AIR wid CEL
Ad By: Dentsu
Journey from Region to Nation
Telecom industry is one industry which in a way does not need any target segment. It has left no age, no gender, no income group, no profession, no location untocuhed. It would not be an over statement saying that mobile connection spreads like water today. And for something like water, any source is taken. Likewise, consumers have so many options today for mobile connection that they are kings to choose any at anytime. In such tough competition, telecom players need to be very particular in what they offer and what they market.
Aircel, a leader from South forays into market of North and West region. While moving from one region to show their presence in whole Nation, that too in regions where players like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea already dominate, Aircel has taken a big challenge to make people talk their language. They have not let any channel untouched. From social networking sites like Facebook to TV commercials to Banners to all kind of Print Ads everywhere Dhoni is seen browsing on his cell. But what do they wish to communicate? Aircel is about networking, browsing or connectivity. The impression that is left after seeing Dhoni talk about Aircel is that Aircel keeps you going in any situation. Aircel aptly takes Dhoni for endorsing their brand because its time of IPL and who can be better to express success of moving from region to Nation. But as a consumer, when he takes a mobile connection, there has to be some connection that he needs to feel with the brand which would drive him to buy it. Aircel shows that when you are stuck in midst of some problem, then their connection offers you solution for everything by browsing through. But does that strike to masses. Do mass market of India connect to this concept of browsing. For major segment of India, mobile connection is about talking and connecting but Aircel does not talk about it. Although there is no corner where we don't see Dhoni with his Aircel but everywhere he is engrossed in browsing not talking or connecting.
There is a slight gap which Aircel needs to fill in with which they can reach masses. Aircel is known in South, why not use the success story for other region of India. Indian Consumer is happy to talk, why not show them that Aircel makes you talk, talk and talk with additional talk by connecting in many ways through browsing.
So share the region with nation !!!
