Created by Ogilvy South India, the ‘Itna Aasan Haini’ campaign for Amazon India was directed by Lucifer Circus’s Sharat Kataria. The campaign includes TVCs and short content for customers across India.
The three-ad campaign was created keeping the companies core message in mind. The intent of the campaign is to communicate to existing and prospective sellers who are not on the platform, how easy and simple it is to sell on Amazon. This message needs to be communicated to the sellers in a way that is simple and easily understandable making it that much more memorable.
With thousands of sellers thriving on the Amazon ecosystem, Amazon India has always worked towards the growth of SMBs in the country. By making the enrolling process a lot simpler and hassle free, Amazon has made it easier for anyone who wants to move their business online on Amazon.
Mahesh Gharat, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy South said: “The brief was simple. Change the perception of the sellers about selling on Amazon. They believe there are numerous barriers like paperwork to sell on Amazon. To communicate the ease of selling on Amazon, our campaign needed to be even simpler. When I say simple, the first thing that came to our mind was a nursery rhyme. Wake me up in the middle of the night and I can still narrate you a nursery rhyme. Taking this device and the iconic rhythm, we communicated how easy it is to sell on Amazon. Thus, driving home the thought about how simple it is to sell on Amazon.”
Mukesh Kumar, Group Creative Director Bangalore said: “The perception amongst sellers is, selling on Amazon involved a lot of barriers like paperwork. The brief was simple. Turn the barrier perception into something simple. When the team sat together, we realized our communication should be as simple as the process of selling on Amazon and what better than a nursery rhyme. There is nothing stickier and simpler than a nursery rhyme. It is still fresh in our heads and probably will stay in our heads for life. From there on, our job was simpler. The takeout after watching this campaign should be the ease of selling on Amazon is as simple as mugging up a nursery rhyme.”
Satish Upadhyay, Head – Marketing, Amazon India Marketplace said: “The 600,000 sellers on Amazon.in are benefiting from online selling while bringing hundreds of millions of unique products for our customers. With this campaign, we intend to communicate to millions of MSMEs about how Amazon makes it easy for small businesses to go digital and start or expand their business by reaching millions of Amazon customers through e-commerce.”
