OLX CMC leverages the market leadership that OLX commands in the pre-owned cars vertical and delivers on the promise of convenient and instant car selling.

“OLX is the market leader in the pre-owned cars segment and with the launch of OLX Cash My Car (CMC), we are determined to strengthen our position in the cars vertical. The proposition is meant for convenience seeking consumers who are ready to sell their car instantly, said Sapna Arora, CMO, OLX India. “The campaign is extremely contextual to today’s users, who are young, independent and tech-savvy. The couple in the film is shown to be jointly in charge of selling their car, and the woman is as much a decision maker, in fact a decision taker, as much as her spouse. The ad mirrors the evolving urban philosophy of partnership between couples in today’s society,” she added.

The marketing campaign is conceptualized by the creative agency- Enormous Brands, and features a young couple who are bantering on the best way to sell their car.

The fact that OLX enjoys the authority as an undisputed leader in the category and the insight into the growing attention of women sellers at the CMC stores has inspired us for this campaign.”
