Techmagnate was entrusted with taking care of the British Paints social media account and they approached us with the following objectives for their Facebook page:
- Increased brand visibility
- Higher social media visibility
Techmagnate presented British Paints with a high-engagement strategy for Facebook to deliver their desired results.
Considering the fact that British Paints serves a largely Indian population, we decided to combine two of India’s greatest loves – color and Bollywood.
To commemorate Holi, the colorful spring festival, we posted a Holi-related film still and asked the British Paints audience to correctly guess the name of the corresponding song and movie. We collected the names of all participants who had provided the right answers and declared a winner through a random draw.
The campaign lasted for one week, from 11th March to 18th March 2014, culminating towards the celebration of the festival in India.
“The average reach of posts exceeded 8000 people, organically.”
- On the first day of the contest, we saw an increase of nearly 100 organic Likes on the Facebook page.
- Through this campaign, we saw the average reach of posts exceed 8000 people, organically.
- The same post received a whopping 1282 Likes, also achieved organically.
Facbook Analytics breakdown showing major KPI’s on the Holi Campaign post.
- The Facebook Analytics report also revealed a total threefold increase in all the major KPI’s being monitored, namely Engagement, Reach and Likes.
Decidedly a successful campaign. We were able to create brand ambassadors for British Paints through the use of giveaways and creative combinations of music and a well-loved national festival.
