Live No Negative

 

The ‘Live No Negative’ movement drives the people to have a positive outlook to life. At DBCL one of the key initiatives undertaken to build this philosophy forward is ‘No Negative Monday’.

 

The Group follows the ‘No Negative News on Monday’, policy across all its newspapers and carries only positive news to ensure that readers start their week with positivity. If there is negative news which is significant for readers, it is carried in a separate pull-out or page with a disclaimer.

 

This helps generate hope, inspiration, delight and a sense of pride besides being a great start to the week. Being a first-of-its-kind initiative, this initiative received wide acclaim in the industry, and very positive reception from readers.

Unmetro your mind

 

Unmetro is an economic terrain that is fast reaching critical mass. It’s here that the India’s 21st century growth story is being written. The Dainik Bhaskar Group is helping marketers gather critical information about this rapidly changing segment of the Indian population, beyond top metros. There are about 8,000 cities & towns across the country, beyond the traditional top metros also referred as to as the rest of Urban India, Middle India, or ‘Tier II / III / IV cities. Unmetro includes 45 cities with a population of more than 1 million and another 480 cities with a population of 1,00,000 or more. Dainik Bhaskar’s Unmetro initiative is aimed to break the paradigm of metro-centric advertising, by making marketers think out-of-the-box and shift their focus to the cities beyond metros that’s fuelling the real growth. New opportunity are rising affluence levels and change in consumption patterns are opening doors for marketers to service new markets. This has created numerous opportunities for both national and international brands in India.

 

To continue this endeavor Unmetro – 'The Action Is Elsewhere', a brand new campaign aimed at the marketers, advertisers and the media planner/buyer was launched beginning this year. The campaign idea revolves around the fact that, so far we’ve all been enamored by the going-ons of metros, while the real action is in the Unmetro heartland of India, i.e. the ‘Action Is Elsewhere’.

 

The campaign was crafted by an animated digital film and supported by print ads, outdoor, web banners, conclaves, social media and above all the Unmetro website www.unmetro.in

Bihar Launch

 

The Dainik Bhaskar Group’s foray in Bihar is an embodiment of our relentless spirit to provide best-in-class product to our readers. Bihar was a 3 player ‘Hindi’ newspaper market with only 44% penetration highlighting the market potential for a right product and of market expansion opportunities. With the launch of Dainik Bhaskar’s Patna edition, the Group now covers 14 Indian states. Unique, deep-rooted research and survey of 3,37,578 households marked the Bihar launch as one of our most iconic introductions into a new Hindi market.

 

We entered Bihar with our signature twin-program survey and an aim to outstrip the competing newspaper brands by 10-15% market share. ‘Speak Up Bihar’ campaign encouraged Bihar’s readers to express their views and redefine the way they received the news every day. With an overwhelming 1,70,000 copies distributed, Dainik Bhaskar claimed the position of No. 1 from Day 1.

The Great Gujarat Jalsa

 

We conceptualized an umbrella property called ‘The Great Gujarat Jalsa’ owing to Gujarat being the land of celebrations. We believed ‘The Great Gujarat Jalsa’ to be an effective platform for Divya Bhaskar to engage with media planners, buyers and marketers.

 

Two highly engaging contests were rolled out under this umbrella – The Great Gujarat Selfie and The Great Gujarat Crossword.

 

While the former was the first of its kind initiative in the B2B space, it also sparked off a cascading effect on the campaign awareness with selfies going viral and demands for likes hitting the roof.

 

On the other hand, The Great Gujarat Crossword also made huge inroads with its promise of gratifying 10 lucky winners.

 

The Great Gujarat contest was not only engaging but it also disseminated information about the Gujarat market and the brand Divya Bhaskar.
