Speaking about the campaign, Dinesh Menon, Chief Marketing Officer, SBI said, “Given its stature and responsibility the SBI brand carries with it, it was only natural that the brand took the initiative of being the harbinger of change in the backdrop of demonetisation. The #CashKiAadatBadlo campaign is an effort to encourage people to adopt SBI’s digital payment solutions such (SBI Buddy and SBI Pay and Debit Cards) by communicating its simplicity and safety of use. Through this campaign we intend to bring about a pre-disposition to adoption of digital currency among those consumer segments that are habituated to using cash. Early feedback has been encouraging, both from an awareness and response perspective. This campaign has also generated most engagement with Twitter users as rated by the Brand Equity ‘Twitter index’.”
