6 Outdoor – Specific creative strategy(ies) by market and / or demography :- Since the primary objective was to ensure that Adventures of Hatim is registered well with the audience thus all creative’s for OOH were done in a way that ‘Hatim’ was the real hero and stood out in all creative renditions.There were various media formats used in the campaign like unipoles, mobile vans, and billboards. The creative were rendered to use create a larger than life cut out depicting the strength of Hatim.

9 Media strategy:-The Strategy was to create aura of large format media inventory only. For Mumbai and Delhi which are the key markets for trade we used normal print depicting a 3D image view on all the hoardings.Apart from using the large format hoarding our attempt was to leave no stones unturned to attract the eyeballs in the form of various cutouts with 3D effects and LED lights.Various innovations in Mumbai and Delhi were executed -Hatim lifting the billboard on his shoulder, Hatim tearing the billboard with his sword, Larger than life cut out.The campaign also showcased an innovation in the form of creating a 3 dimensional Hatim on billboard. We created a larger than life 3d body of Hatim. Hatim is showcased as he jumps from the top tearing and smashing the billboard into pieces. This depicted the strength and adventures of Hatim .IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS :-The campaign was for duration of 10 days and was implemented across Mumbai, Delhi, Gujarat 1mn+, UP.1mn+ cities. Only large format hoardings, gantries were used to create impact and Scale.
10 SolutionFor most innovations executed – Hatim’s pose / placement, etc. designed by BatesTo execute the designs proposed, one day of special shoot was organised for HatimNo sites were taken for coverage of the city. Rather, best sites of the city / higher impactful sites were considered. The idea was to take fewer number of medias, creating higher impact.
11 ChallengesThe show had various elements which could have been made available to create the story highlighting Hatim’s adventure- like 7 quest 7 answers but we had restricted not to use it until the 3 week. To show the strength and adventure with the available creative was the biggest challenge.The timelines for fabricating the 3D sculptor, large cutout was a challenge as well. The turnaround time for the fabrication work and installation at the venue for the innovations was just 3 days.The entire campaign had more than 150 media touch points. The campaign was installed in just 2 days across markets.
12 EffectivenessThe campaign achieved the desired objective of initial opening nos. The Reach achieved was 5.5, while the TVR Ratings achieved were 2.2.Shows like Jhalak Dikhlaja having known celebrities achieved an opening TVR of 2.5 and Mahadev the lead show of the channel achieved the TVR of 2.7 after 10 months of its existence.This formed a successful instance of a television channel using extensive and innovative outdoor advertising in order to promote its “Big ticket P1” show.
