iPhone & The Art Of Selling Touch-screen Phones

Posted by Q on September 30, 2008

This post has got nothing to do with the iPhone; 3G or otherwise

Sometime back, when i was still an B-schooler unschooled in the art of marketing, i had made a few video ads for a competition @ IIM Kozhikode. Our presentation was on Touch-screen mobile phones & i remember we got ripped apart by the judges because they perceived touch-screen technology to be a distant futuristic invention & we weren’t to sully the good ol’ name of the art of snake-oil selling. Now, that the iPhone has seen the light of the day even amongst cave-dwellers, i hope those good folks are living on a steady diet of humble pie. Here ends the obscure iPhone reference.

From An Advertising perspective, i guess the copy-work is pretty bad; but hey, these were my first vid (and last till now 😦 ) vid edits

a) Theme – Doctor & Baby

b) Theme – Redemption

c) Theme – Sensual
