Teacher's Day campaigns

Social Samosa takes a look at few Teacher's Day campaigns and contests which brands have been running on their social media pages.

On the occasion of Teacher's Day, we saw a lot of brands doing interesting activities on digital. This year, brands have been mainly running contests on Twitter to engage with their audiences.

Only a handful of brands like Gatorade India and Unacademy released digital videos around the theme of Teacher's Day. Quaker Oats found a great opportunity to promote their campaign #FuelForTheRealFit which they launched last month, around the story of a primary school teacher.

#TeachersDay was trending on Twitter throughout the day and brands found this as a great opportunity to connect with their audience.
