GoQuest Digital Studios begins its professional journey with Volkswagen as its Studio Partner

GoQuest Media Ventures recently launched its digital studios unit which has kick-started its operations with one of the most iconic global automobile brands-Volkswagen. The German multinational has for the past 8 years been successfully organizing the one-of-its-kind premium one-make car championship series spread across different cities throughout the year. Volkswagen started off with the Polo Cup in 2010 and after going through various upgrades in terms of the race machines, is running the Ameo Cup for 2018 with their most powerful racecar so far. For Volkswagen Ameo Cup 2018, GoQuest Digital Studios will be managing the entire end-to-end content creation, distribution and brand engagement activities.

One of the biggest OEM-supported motorsport divisions of India, the annual one-make circuit racing series which began in 2010 has helped develop many stalwarts in the world of Indian motorsports. GoQuest Digital Studios in its role will aim to facilitate the entire target audience engagement and bring out Volkswagen’s core values of safety, drivability and robustness to fans of the Volkswagen Ameo Cup. This year, GoQuest Digital Studios has aimed to move away from the conventional narrative of the show by adopting an extremely digital-savvy approach to reach out to the fast moving audiences which exist both on digital and sports television channels.

GoQuest Digital Studios, which aims to provide the best brand integration opportunities through its unique blend of subtle storytelling with impeccable production value, will help Volkswagen’s partners to promote their products and establish a strong connect with the target audiences during the series. The event, being a one-make car championship where all the cars are developed and maintained by Volkswagen Motorsport India, celebrates an individual driver’s skill, knowledge, proficiency and courage, characteristics that GoQuest will look to focus on during every promotional activity throughout the event.

Additionally, the digital division in its capacity will aim to distribute it to multiple digital platforms – including regional platforms- South India ( TN, Kerala, AP, Telangana, Karnataka) where motorsport enjoys a massive fan following and loyalty . To ensure content discovery – reach and engagement for the content is achieved they will be activating the digital marketing campaign by deploying Strong social media engagement through daily contests, posts on FB, Instagram and Twitter to motorsport enthusiast communities across the country.

Elaborating on the promotional steps, Darshan Bhatt, Director, GoQuest Digital Studios, said, “The Volkswagen Ameo Cup is an iconic series in itself and it gives us great joy to be able to work on it as our first project. The stakes involved are huge-It has a strong history of eight successful seasons and is probably one of the most anticipated events for motorsport enthusiasts in India. The racing events invariably generate record audience footfall of 20,000+ each year and at every venue, and the passion quotient is high. Our strategy is to therefore strengthen the existing popularity of the event through continuous fan engagement through multiple channels and utilize this popularity to reach out to newer audiences. The program incorporates psychographic, geographic and demographic valuables which presents a unique challenge for us as our very first end-to-end content creation and distribution project. We are looking forward to a great baptism through our association with the Volkswagen Ameo Cup and are extremely hopeful that our comprehensive quality work in every step of the content cycle will live up to the value of brand Volkswagen!"

Commenting on the objectives of the collaboration, Sirish Vissa, Head, Volkswagen Motosport India, said, “Our main discussion with GoQuest Digital Studios hovered around the goals of reaching out to wider audiences & establish a better connect with the existing users. We have seen racing being covered in a conventional manner so far in the country, and we wanted them to take a different spin and built a different angle with a more human element. This will give the viewers who haven't had the exposure to motorsport yet to connect with it, and brand Volkswagen, in a far more personal level.”

On GoQuest Digital Studios performance, Vissa added, “We have been greatly impressed by the enthusiasm brought on by the GoQuest Digital Studios team and the unique ideas proposed by them so far. However, it is not only in terms of excitement, but the immaculate level of planning that GoQuest Digital Studios has brought onboard which gives us high hopes for the popularity of this year’s series. We are looking forward to collaborate with the team more throughout the year and in the future, too.”
