SkyHub innovates for LG Smartphone

NEW DELHI: SkyHub, the digital creative and technology firm, brought about a change in the Indian marketing scenario with the introduction of a unique social media campaign. Embracing the social medium of Vine and Instagram, SkyHub conceptualised an engaging online campaign for the launch of LG smart phone the G Pro in the country.

LG is the first Indian marketer to effectively use the innovative medium for their consumer engagement strategy. With a series of Vines made around the G Pro Smartphone, incorporating wacky animations, social issues and traditional Indian artforms the campaign with the hashtag #ImaginationbeGins gained massive traction on Twitter and other social networks when launched.

Talking about the social media strategy SkyHub CEO Jay Chauhan said, "Besides the creatives we also delivered social media analytics and marketing insights to measure the performance of the G Pro campaign. Our metrics showed the Vines were delivering high engagement 'WOW' moments whereas the Instagrams with their longer 16 sec limit simulated a more TVC style 'piece to camera' messaging for the audiences and worked best for quick bursts of handset specific info". 

Delighted by the response received for the campaign LG Mobile head marketing Amit Gujral said, "We knew we had to leapfrog the competition to reach our consumers in innovative and enjoyable ways in order to deliver an exciting and talked about campaign that resonated with our consumers. So the messaging around the G Pro was augmented using Vines, a unique medium never used before by marketers in India."

He further added, "SkyHub was highly innovative, metric driven and clear about the KPI's they were delivering. Most importantly the SkyHub team's thinking was like a creative agency but they delivered swiftly and efficiently like a news organisation."

Online medium being touted as the most popular way to share information, Vine and Instagram look set to play an important role for Indian marketers. The popularity of both Vine and Instagram is rapidly increasing with a study by showing branded Vines being four times likely to be shared than video advertising on other platforms.
