Asahi India Glass Ltd (AIS)
Taking a digital route, Asahi India Glass, country’s glass manufacturer in the consumer, architectural and auto glass segments rolled out a campaign to leverage shades of love this Valentine’s Day.
The idea behind this campaign was to engage audience in a more interesting manner and showcase their products through innovation.
The brand mainly wanted to broaden awareness on their products and solutions to make it relatable to the end audience using a match-making angle.
In the preliminary stage the brand produced launched teasers for the video on their social media handles. Creating a mock up app interface ‘Finder’ they introduced their 5 heroes who had exclusive traits, which connects to their five products with their functionalities. These characters were revealed on five social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.
The video went live on the morning of Valentine’s Day on Facebook and YouTube, using #FindYourPerfectMatch and later was cross-promoted on all the platforms.
