Dear Marketers,

You don’t always need a contests or giveaways to trend on twitter.

Parachute Advansed, a hair oil brand, managed to trend on twitter at number one position with the hashtag #KhulKeKheloHoli

Thanks to their touching video ad where they have shown the old peoples staying in an old-age home celebrating “holi” with the younger generation in a free style. This ad would have definitely brought tears of joy in eyes and filled happiness in hearts of many.

They brilliantly seeded the video links on all the web platforms:

They also carried the similar branding and messaging across all platforms which gave a clear synergy and made it easier for web audience to relate to.

Twitter handle:

Holi 2

Facebook Page:

Holi 3

YouTube channel:

Few quick wins for them are:

Its perfect timing as “Holi” is nearing.

They published their video just 20hrs back hence the right timing to push it on social media.

All branding was in sync. Though I would have loved it more if the similar branding & messaging was there on the website too.

They were engaging with online audience very actively to keep the momentum going

All and all, I think this ad is soaked in the feelings of Holi and it touched everyone’s emotions.

Now the marketers would have the more detailed insights of the content performance but as we can see it is definitely a hit.

Kudos to the Parachute Advansed team for writing a remarkable brief and showcasing it beautifully on online space.

And #HappyVirtualHoli to our readers!! J #SplashSplash on the eve of #KhulKeKheloHoli
