about me
discovering method to the madness
story of a viral video
26 million reach
7 millions views
3.5 lakh shares
- nominated for best viral marketing campaign (India Digital Awards)
- won award for marketing innovation (DMAI)
“most shared brand Facebook post in APAC in 2014”
(Campaign Asia)
challenge
to execute a content strategy that catapults ixigo
towards a larger reach at a low cost and builds on
its current strength.
objective
• to create an impact on the users’ travel habits.
• develop useful and share-worthy content.
• create brand awareness.
• create an effortless personal connection with fans.
• engage and acquire new fans.
• integrate brand DNA with content
how we did it
on 27th August 2014, ixigo released a 2 min 30 secs video on travel hacks
striking a perfect balance between brand promotion and usability.
video execution: in-house production
Cost of production, distribution and promotion: $500
• From jewellery hacks to luggage hacks, it covered almost everything that
you’ll need to know while packing your bags smartly.
• The video was created in a way to hook a viewer in the first few seconds.
• Key points are conveyed through words on the screen so that they can be
easily understood without sound. (worked well with Facebook)
why did we make a video?
• Most people prefer videos over white papers, long articles, case studies
and even live demos.
• The purpose was to drive high engagement and leverage and take our
chances on Facebook's native video.
• In an age of information overload, it's vital for businesses like ixigo to offer
content that is easy to digest. And nothing works better than a 2-3 minute
video.
• As per the annual CISCO report, by 2015, 1 million video minutes, the
equivalent of 674 days--will be shared on the Internet every second.

highest reach recorded
what worked for the video
Short and crisp -- If you want something to be shared virally over the web, it
has to be short. This video was a 2.3 minute, crisp guide to smart packing.
People are more likely to share something if they have a strong, positive
response to it
People want raw content that feels genuine to them - People don’t want
highly photoshopped/edited stuff, they want stuff that feels genuine to them.
“How-to” guides work really well. The simplicity and the basic edits of the travel
video did bring out the authenticity of the hacks explained.
video ROI: cost vs reach
With INR 30,000, ixigo was able to
achieve a reach equivalent to
that received by the brand
commercials on Star Plus and
other similar GECs after
spending INR 9 lakh.
Brands spending INR 15 lakh or
more find it difficult to get a reach
of 5 million on IPL.

last words
- Don’t make an Ad (BS detectors)
- Don’t start with intent of ‘viral’ (result)
- Obsess about your users, train eg.
- Think storytelling, not high production
- Why would anyone share it? Earn it
- Always be News-Jacking
- First impression & 2nd First impression
- Users first, branding next; give value
- Make it for mobile screens
- Facebook native video; Whatsapp;
CTA buttons
last words
It’s not about being creative;
but about being creative consistently
Do 10 experiments; 2 will work
just like movie studios
80% of success is showing up - Woody Allen
execution is everything
