ShareChat launches cricket-special brand integration for IPL

ShareChat released a cricket-special brand integration that offers brands to connect with cricket fans across the country during IPL.

ShareChat’s move originates from a pilot done at the same time last year during IPL 2019. The platform had received more than 300 million impressions over 45 days. These propositions offer brands the undivided attention of the users and offerings that give users a connected experience in their native languages.

The integrations include:

Cricket Bucket: This bucket customized during the IPL 2020 will take the user directly to the trending tags of Cricket. A click on this bucket opens the door to the cricket world on ShareChat.

Live Score Board: The live score-board will be available with brand integration and engagement through the co-Integrated tag and brand logo, header banner, and footer banner. The brand will thus be present on the pulse of the game where the users will be hooked on during the match.

UGC Updates: Users will be encouraged to participate in conversations with their UGC (user-generated content) on a regular basis around certain matches, teams, individuals, landmarks, etc. This offers an engaging and unparalleled opportunity to the brands to connect with audiences and own conversations before, during and after the game.
