After Amadeus, he began pursuing his business studies at INSEAD’s Asia campus Singapore. After arriving in India, Bajpai met his then classmate Kumar (Co-founder) and the pair decided to start Ixigo, a travel search engine website.
This year, The Gurugram-based company launched its online campaign on Twitter called ‘#SocialMojo’. The campaign is targeted towards the rising awareness on the travel portal’s virtual currency and customer loyalty program, Ixigo Money.

Aloke Bajpai said, “The intention behind SocialMojo was to design an industry-first growth cope which will assist us to build a significant influencer-brand relationship by aiming micro-influencers and changing our customers into advocates. This is the first time a home-grown brand is rewarding Twitter clout, and as the campaign evolves, our target is to recreate this engagement around other social media platforms as well.”
He later added, “Influencer marketing has now changed into a commercial channel for brands to mesh with their audience and with #SocialMojo, Ixigo is grasping its product to operate the influencer marketing graphic for itself.”
#SocialMojo is already experiencing a major organic engagement, with Twitter influencers examining their SocialMojo and earning Ixigo money up to $1450 (INR 1 lakh).
