Travel and Lifestyle channel Fox Traveller in association with Yatra.com on Tuesday announced an innovative viewer engagement initiative on Facebook. The channel has launched a contest titled ‘Where willYour Signature Take U?’ which is part of Fox Traveller’s new brand positioning strategy.
“The ‘Where will Your Signature Take U?’ contest is in line with our new ‘UN’ campaign, which is an ode to impulse as opposed to precision and planning. The campaign adds a new dimension to our channel philosophy of ‘This Journey is fun’ and portrays a fresh attitude to travel. The contest further plays up on the joys of surprise, randomness, hitting the road without an agenda, not knowing where you will end up. We are excited to partner with Yatra.com for this innovative viewer engagement initiative since Yatra is synonymous to travel and connects with our channel’s positioning and personality,” Debarpita Banerjee, Vice President – Marketing, FOX International Channels said.
The first of its own kind contest will take the winner to where they sign on the world map. All they need to do is to log into https://www.facebook.com/foxtraveller or https://www.facebook.com/yatra and submit their signature. The signature will then be superimposed on the world map and the fans will be asked to invite co-travellers for their trip.Top 100 will be asked to share their ‘happy traveler story’, which will be put up for voting.Top two most voted stories will be the winners. The selected winners and their partner/friend will get the opportunity to go to the places covered by their signature.
