[Case Study] Berger’s #JaldiKaro popularizes their new Express Painting service
Berger Paints India
Repainting a home has traditionally involved a lot of inconvenience and Berger Paints – one of India’s leading paint brands decided to eliminate this by introducing ‘Express Painting’, a paint job that uses professional methods, qualified painters, and automatic machines to make things easier.
#JaldiKaro was formulated to announce and promote Berger’s new quick service paint job – Express Painting, using engaging and interactive social media activity and communication. It was also combined with the launch of the new TVC – T20 of Painting and both the properties were promoted online.
Berger Paints wished to extend their trusted assistance from providing quality material to providing service and decided to take the social route to achieve this.
The campaign was kick started on multiple social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the help of a series of humorous videos on the 19th of September. It further announced the launch of ‘Express Painting’ with a microsite based contest to create buzz.
Directing participants to their microsite, #JaldiKaro involved solving a puzzle of rearranging the frames of the video for a chance to win prizes by sharing their score with their friends on social media.
It was aimed at driving engagement on their microsite by offering a fun activity for their followers to participate in, and also inducing a domino effect as participants could invite their friends. The objective here was for people to watch the new TVC multiple times in order to solve the puzzle and hence increase organic views on YouTube, as well as have the ‘Faster’ element incorporated everywhere.
Follow the steps of the game and WIN BIG. What are you waiting for, #JaldiKaro!
