The objective of ‘Audiowala Bus station’ was to create awareness & popularize about Brand “Parle Marie” amongst masses in small towns and rural market where their main brand Parle Glucose is already popular. Facing the strong competition from Britannia and ITC it was never too easy to establish the name overnight. But Vritti iMedia took the challenge and selected the audiowala bus stands to kick start the promotions. Their main aim was to tap the travelers who stop by the canteen to have tea. By having the tie ups with the canteen and tea stalls they successfully started their Parle Marie pe chai free offer. The promotion of the offer through catchy jingles in the local languages created a lot of buzz among the people. Increase in sales from 60 packets per day to 600 packets itself speaks a lot. Parle Marie sold 40000 thousands packets in just 7 day in 30 district location through the ST bus stands of Maharashtra.

The main objective was to thoroughly educate rural consumers of Maharashtra about Good Knight’s innovative cost-effective mosquito repellant – Fast Card. During the “Pandharpur Ashadi Ekadashi”, which is the biggest Yatra Vritti I Media carried out this campaign. From over 30 Bus stations across Mahrashtra State, Devotees travelling to Pandharpur were guided about the bus schedules and were wlecomed through Public Announcement Systems accompanied with the informative Fast Card jingles at Bus Stands across Maharashtra. This Audio campaign was released 20 days before the main Ashadi ekadashi to build some initial momentum and create some inquisitiveness about the Fast card. Temporary hoarding and boards with information like important locations and their directions, along with the Good Knight Fast Card branding and use, were erected at strategic points around the Town of pandharpur. 5 lakh Booklets containing Bhajan and information about the city like the locations, directions, and bus schedules as well as the information about Good Knight Fast Card were distributed to every second person in the city.
Bhajan Mandaps were established near the temple and river area, which are the prime spots of rest for the pilgrims where the devotees got to sit and participate in Bhajan Kirtans. Volunteers announced about Good Knight Fast Card sponsorships and basic product information during the intervals. Also those who could not experience the actual view of the deity at a recommended time could watch it on the 8×6 LED TVs. Fast card product information’s was given through L-bands and scrollers, and were telecast in between intervals which made numerous devotees emotional and grateful towards Good Knight Fast Card.
