As its partner, the agency would be offering digital marketing capabilities including search, social, web|mobile, social media monitoring, analytics and campaign activation to Dr. Agarwal’s Eye Hospital.
Kicking off its inaugural work for the client, LinTeractive unveiled #Dare2Stare, an interactive online initiative designed to encourage more people to pledge their eyes for donation. The initiative goes live through multiple digital touch-points and a website created for collecting eye-donation pledges, dare2stare.in.
Sharing his views on choosing LinTeractive as the AoR and also on the campaign, Dr. Amar Agarwal, CMD, Dr. Agarwal’s Eye Hospital said, “We’re glad to have LinTeractive on-board as our global digital marketing partner andexcited about our first campaign together, #Dare2Stare.As a company committed to the cause of increasing awareness around the importance of eye donation, we want to play a role in bringing vision to more people in the world. We hope the campaign will open many more eyes and make more people come forward to donate their eyesto others, after they’re gone.”
On being appointed the global digital partner for Dr. Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, Vikas Mehta, CMO Lowe Lintas + Partners said, “Dr. Agarwal’s is an organization with deep-domain knowledge and a great heart. They are at the early stages of building their digital presence, which allows us to co-create with them, the entire digital marketing ecosystem. Driving ‘digital transformations’ excites us both as a business, and as a team of practitioners. Working with an Indian company towards their global ambition, makes this partnership truly special.”
Sharing her views on the creative expression rendered to the online initiative, Gauri Joshi, Unit Creative Director, LinTeractive said, “We asked ourselves a very simple question: ‘How could people feel emotionally connected to a visually impaired person and his need for eyes?’ The answer, we realized, lay in an old and popular staring game. When someone looks deeply into another set of eyes, it’s impossible to turn a blind eye to this social issue anymore. And that’s the crux of #Dare2Stare campaign. We are hopeful that this creative rendition would bring about a shift in the way people think about eyedonation in general.”
