Digital payments company Paytm has launched a campaign, ‘Kisi Ki Life Ka Paytm Bano’. The two heart-warming campaigns ask people to encourage each other, to embrace technology, or to help realise their dreams and ambitions. The brand will be releasing the films across Broadcast, online and mobile channels during the IPL season. Speaking about the campaign, Jaskaran Kapany, Vice President, Paytm says, “At Paytm, we firmly believe that technology is not merely about the benefits transferred to an individual, but also about the benefits transferred to the collective, that is, society at large. Our new campaign aims to not only bridge the divide between the tech-savvy and the unfamiliar, but also to leverage the power of technology as an ‘enabler’ of the masses and make a difference in their lives. Our new brand thought of ‘Kisi Ki Life Ka Paytm Bano’ embodies this philosophy and urges everyone to lend a helping hand to others. What could have been a better launch vehicle for this new brand thought than the IPL! We are confident that this new campaign will go a long way in strengthening the trust that crores of Indians have reposed in us.”
