1. Radio: Radio is one of the best media platforms for city-wide targeting and to target the working professionals because a majority of the working population listen to the radio while commuting to their workplaces. Hence, radio was used for increasing brand awareness. 

2. Print: Print media is a significant part of the media landscape and can be personalised to your target audience in terms of design aesthetic and message delivery. This enables you to target the audience you want to reach and create content that is both pertinent to and interesting to them.

3.Outdoor: Since the objective is to reach out to business professionals and those seeking healthcare services, we decided to target localities/platforms that are most visited/used by the target group. Hyperlocal advertising is one such effective medium. 

4. Cinema: Cinema is one of the best entertainment sources, and the cinema halls’ reach is pretty high in Bangalore (almost 1,761,000 per week). Also, cinema-goers are considered the premium audience and are primarily aware of the tech-driven product; hence placing ads in cinema halls helped the brand to reach the premium audience and conveyed the benefits of online healthcare consultation.

5. Medical Shop Branding: The advertisement in the medical shops encouraged the people who are actively seeking to buy their prescriptions (low-hanging fruits) about Mfine and its advantages. 

6. Bus Advertising: Bangaloreans spend an average number of two hours daily commuting. Buses are one of the significant modes of transport media in Bangalore. Placing ads on buses helped in reaching out to the mass audience.

7. Cab Branding: Cab branding is a very attractive and premium advertising medium. Due to high traffic, people spend a significant amount of time on the road, making cab branding a preferred advertising medium for the brand to spread the word about its platform.

Print commercials, radio jingles, outdoor advertisements, bus advertisements, and a few more were all created by the brand using innovative and exciting material.
