PAYBACK India launches an exciting consumer campaign – ‘#PAYBACK Chalao’. The campaign is aimed at building excitement around the ease of earning and redeeming PAYBACK points at over 100+ brands via the new PAYBACK mobile app. Currently, the PAYBACK network has brands across several categories and in-store as well as online channels. Moreover, PAYBACK partners are mostly market leaders in their segments and cover various high frequency shopping categories ranging from food to shopping, fuel to travel and entertainment. With such a varied portfolio of partners, PAYBACK members can earn points faster and redeem them for attractive rewards, from a multitude of options.
The company crossed a few impressive milestones recently like crossing a member base of 100 million, new brand additions to the network and the launch of an easy-to-use new mobile app. It has now decided to take the brand several notches higher. They have signed up ace cricketer, Yuvraj Singh, as their brand ambassador to promote its core values and build top-of-mind recall amongst its member base. It is launching a new positioning statement termed as #PAYBACK Chalao, which aims to make collecting and redeeming points as part of their daily lives and shopping choices. The campaign is being released in a staggered manner across 6 key markets and will run on radio and print, supported by a digital release.
Speaking on the campaign, Mr. Ramakant Khandelwal, CMO said, “Our positioning statement ‘PAYBACK Chalao’ resonates well with our members. Our brand ambassador Yuvraj Singh is well known for effortless stroke play to score the maximum. Hence our core messaging reads ‘Score big like Yuvraj every time. IT’S PAYBACK TIME’. We also have a messaging in Hinglish which reads ‘Ab rewards kamana hai, baayein haath ka khel! Yuvraj ki tarah har baar kuch zyaada pao, PAYBACK CHALAO’
