Ageas Federal Life Insurance has launched its new campaign featuring its brand ambassador Sachin Tendulkar. The campaign #BasEkCall encourages individuals to connect during these emotionally draining, tough times. Tendulkar appeals to people to reach out to their friends, family, colleagues, and loved ones over a phone call and support them. He also calls for isolation and social distancing, while he speaks about his own recovery experience of Covid19. The campaign is an extension of Ageas Federal’s brand philosophy #FutureFearless, the company said in a statement.
Conceptualised and created in partnership with VMLY&R India, #BasEkCall will run primarily on digital media including social media, OTT platforms, Google Display Network, English and vernacular news portals, sports portals, influencer pages, programmatic advertising, and mobile notifications.
Ageas Federal has joined hands with NGO EK Saath for free doctor consultations, mental wellness sessions, and vaccine-related help. Consultations and services are currently available in six languages including Hindi, English, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil and Kannada as the brand wants the initiative to reach rural populations along with urban audiences.
“We have been in lockdown for over a year-and-a-half due to the Covid-19 pandemic. While many of us have been physically affected by the virus, others have struggled to cope with the loss, isolation, loneliness, anxiety and uncertainty brought on by the pandemic. Through our campaign, #BasEkCall spearheaded by our Brand Ambassador, Sachin Tendulkar, we want to remind people that they are not in this alone,” Karthik Raman, chief marketing officer and head – products, Ageas Federal Life Insurance, said.
