And in a high ticket and involvement category like Real Estate, this comes to fore all the more. Hence, we conceptualized an idea of presenting Magicbricks as Property Ka Supermarket. When we talk about the home buying process, the choices and services offered by Magicbricks, it is unparalleled. The campaign has been conceptualised and filmed in a way that consumers can very easily relate to the protagonists as they will somewhere see their own story of home buying journey. Based on a very peppy music & lyrics, this is the first in the category and will help uplift buyer sentiments. With this ad campaign, our aim is to reaffirm the brand’s position as ‘Property Ka Supermarket’ offering widest ‘Choices.’ This is the first musical in its category with a dose of fun and humour with a serious message for the home buying process. Home buying is one of the most important decisions of an Indian, and we want to ensure that we at Magicbricks bring to them the best in terms of choice and convenience. With our bouquet of products and service offerings, we, aim at making the home buying journey of our consumers seamless and memorable and that’s what this new ad campaign is all about.”
The story board revolves around the journey of a young couple in the supermarket as they have decided to buy a home. With exploration of various sections and counters of this unique Property Supermarket, viewers will be able to see them using many features and tools that Magicbricks website offers. The advertisement has a high-energy and hummable song, which blends beautifully with the visuals and makes the journey even more memorable. A warm chemistry between the couple along with the lyrical melody makes the film entertaining as well as endearing. The campaign ends showing the couple cheerful and happy in the dream-home of their choice with tagline “India Finds Homes With Us”.
Speaking about the launch, Creative Director Ankur Suman said, “To tell a brand's offerings and functions in an entertaining, breezy and yet simple manner is always a challenge. That's why the idea of presenting Magicbricks as a supermarket worked brilliantly for us. It wasn't easy to make words like 3 BHK, construction or ready-move-lyrical and hummable, but the lyricist, Pankaj Bora, did a spectacular job.”
