OLX started it’s TV Ad campaign in 2011, the advertisements are very clear, natural, funny and full of humor, most of the ads are based on daily life, like buying a baby cot for baby, buying a new car thinking it is small compared to neighbor, selling a bike to buy a new one, grand pa ad and others are very popular in OLX TV ad campaign.
All ads have one thing in common, they follow same motto, just sell it when you don’t need it! (chal bechtey olx pe) and these ads got good response from viewers and in youtube these ad videos crossed 20 million views (In their official channel).
