Consumer research highlighted the fact that building an interactive platform for the end consumers creates a positive impact on the brand and the category at large. Hence, we decided to integrate with the most popular show on the TV – KBC (Indian version of Who wants to be a millionaire) and added the “gamification”, “real time playing” and “digital platform” to the campaign. From all the consumer immersion, we realized that everyone watching game always thought that they were a better player than the guy on the hot seat, and that worked as a key hook to anchor this platform. Many Indians aspired to be on the KBC hot seat but only lucky ones got an opportunity to play on the Hot Seat with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. So, Jio-KBC was born to enhance interactivity and virality component in the brand communication, and also made it accessible to the whole country.
The audience could play this game on their smartphones while the program was telecasted for the whole season comprising of around 50 episodes. We opened, 7 days of pre-registration, where 2 days were exclusive for Jio users. We added an exclusive lifeline integration, where for the first time anywhere in the world 2-way video call was offered. Jio hot seat, an express pass for a hot seat. Exclusive weeks for winners to play with popular Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan. Additionally, an exclusivity was also built to create a special bond with current Jio users. There was special Jio jackpot where participant with right answer stand a chance to win a car, smartphone etc and also a fully paid surprise USA trip. This was also clubbed with anchor brand mentions and a mega Jio jackpot of 10 million Indian rupees. Jio KBC turned million dreams into reality.
