Social Media Case Study
Post the launch of its smartphone Yunicorn, YU Mobiles rolled out a bold and quirky campaign on Twitter. This Case Study entails the array of activities conducted by the brand.
The idea was to drive home the message of Yunicorn encompassing the ‘Power of 4’, as depicted in its main advertisement that has been doing to the rounds of print, outdoor and digital.
#Hungry4Yunicorn was created on Twitter to boost awareness about Yunicorn, ahead of its flash sale. The tactic was to re-purpose the components of Twitter to highlight the features of the smartphone.
Reinforcing this communication, the activity asked its fans on Twitter to unfollow everyone they currently have on their following list and retain just ‘4’ accounts to follow, of which one has to be @YUplaygod. The twitter activity kick-started with this peculiar message that immediately induced a sense of intrigue among fans.
