Mansi Madan Tripathy, CMO, Shell Lubricants India is of the opinion that connecting with end consumers is very important for any brand. “At the heart of all marketing activities is to engage, bond and form lasting relationships with our end consumer. Our Driven to Extremes TV programme has been very popular amongst our consumers and it is great that we can offer them the chance to experience the extremes for themselves, through a unique gaming experience. Shell has always strived to offer innovative campaigns to its customers. The ‘Can you handle the extreme’ Facebook game is yet another initiative from our stable which puts across in a fun and engaging way, the importance of oil selection to optimize the vehicle performance in difficult conditions”.
