In addition to being the #1 player in classifieds in general, we are also far far bigger than anyone else in mass market jobs as a category. We thought its time to tell people that. There are hundreds of thousands of employers posting all types of jobs on Quikr, ranging from IT/BPO to sales to retail and beyond. In a broader sense, the role of this film is to let people know that Quikr is not just about products - but services too."

Raghu Bhat, founder director, Scarecrow Communications, said, "The best part about Quikr communication is the brutal clarity on the who the target audience is and the brand's determination to delight them with the 'unexpected' at every given opportunity. This purity of purpose has led to highly memorable campaigns in the past and hopefully, this time too."

Along with a TVC, Quikr will be using radio and internet.
