FloBiz, a fast-growing neobank for Indian SMBs, today announced its association with Padma Shri awardee actor Manoj Bajpayee. The Bengaluru-based fintech aims to accelerate its outreach to the SMB sector and promote the adoption of its flagship product myBillBook – a simple to use GST billing and accounting software – with Manoj Bajpayee as the brand ambassador.
FloBiz will release a set of ad films, the first of which launched on 24th Oct 2021, featuring Manoj as a businessman with satirical takes on the day-to-day problems that business owners face while running their enterprises, particularly invoicing, collection of pending receivables and inventory management. The â€˜Business Ko Le Seriouslyâ€™ campaign highlights how digital solutions can improve performance and power growth in a small business. Created by Tilt Brand Solutions, the campaign will go live across several media platforms, including OTT, TV, OOH, social media, websites and mobile applications.
Commenting on the association, the renowned Bollywood actor said, â€œMost of the products and services we consume daily are offered by small and medium businesses in our country. However, these SMBs have been historically underserved when it comes to dedicated digital tools and financial services. And so, I was personally very impressed with FloBizâ€™s mission to accelerate the growth of SMBs by providing technological solutions and curated services via their product myBillBook. Especially after the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to go digital is paramount for businesses, and myBillBook is easily one of the most suited applications to cater to this need.â€
â€œWhen the FloBiz team approached me with their â€˜Business Ko Le Seriouslyâ€™ campaign idea, it piqued my interest instantly. The scripts were witty and funny, the production team was reputable, and the companyâ€™s mission was sincere. Iâ€™m glad to partner with them in promoting their brand,â€ he added.
â€œThe â€˜Business Ko Le Seriouslyâ€™ campaign is our first step towards creating a relatable and trustworthy brand for myBillBook, targeting ambitious business owners across the country. Weâ€™re extremely thrilled to join hands with Mr. Manoj Bajpayee to communicate our mission and the productâ€™s value propositions to the small business community over the next one year.
Manojâ€™s universal charisma and mass appeal, coupled with the inspiring story of his journey from a humble beginning to critically acclaimed fame, is sure to resonate with the SMBs. The team thoroughly enjoyed working with the incredibly talented artist, who brings such passion and conviction to his workâ€, said Rahul Raj, Co-founder and CEO of FloBiz.
