Zenith's campaign for Maggi turns Google Search into a voting engine

In a first-of-its kind creative association, the Google search results page for ‘Meri Maggi’ was transformed into an innovative branding medium—one that registers live votes from consumers ahead of product launch. Zenith, part of Publicis Media India, conceived this campaign for Maggi and brought it alive in a unique creative association with Google.

A search for ‘Meri Maggi’ on Google displays eight potential new flavours. The new product line comes with names that are intrinsically Indian: Amritsari Achari, Bengali Jhaal, Gujarati Khaman, Kashmiri Dum, Kochi Malabari, Mumbai Chatak, to name a few. Of these, the user has to accurately guess the four flavours that Maggi will end up launching. Users can vote every day till midnight on Friday, April 21. Post voting, the user is diverted to the Paytm Maggi page for registration where they can avail a Maggi goodie bag.

Tanmay Mohanty, Group CEO, Zenith India, says, “Zenith develops brand experiences that maximize the value of the opportunity and builds rewarding relationships with valuable customers. This is an innovative campaign in which search has been transformed into a unique ‘Voting Engine’ and this initiative only harnesses the passion of Maggi loyalists. The preview on the new flavours adds to the buzz and anticipation among Indian consumers. Over the past 33 years, Maggi has become one of the most trusted brands in India. It has done this by keeping up with the changing Indian palette. ‘Maggi Masalas of India’ is a step in the same direction and we are pleased to engage with them on the same.”
