Chitale Bandhu, an 82-year-old company, with rich legacy in making iconic sweets in Maharashtra, today announced its foray into the savoury snack segment with the launch of brand BINGEBAR™. The digital campaign kick-started in a quirkiest manner where the brand pranked its customers with a sign-up teaser which spread the word that a new “Bar” is coming to Maharashtra. Later, the brand revealed first-ever BINGEBAR™ by unveiling the official logo along with the ad films for each product on all social media platforms.

To reach the target audience, both online and offline marketing channels were leveraged. The offline channels focused on feedback of the consumers, which forms the essence of BINGEBAR™. Free samples were given to consumers through Zomato deliveries and in person by actors dressed as Bhelwallas. An online pre-launch campaign roped in influencers who encouraged their followers to sign up for free samples on social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The product is promoted by efficiently utilising online and offline channels. Exclusive Brand Films and Brand Explainers with catchy music for each flavour are also released across multiple channels to create a high recall for the FCMG Brand.
