How PicsArt helped Myntra elevate customer engagement during EORS 13

The creative editing challenge on PicsArt in India hit 80 million views


MUMBAI: PicsArt, through Ventes Avenues, undertook a social media campaign for Myntra to boost engagement with the latter’s audience, during its six-day End of Reason Sale (EORS) held in December 2020.

For the 13th edition of the EORS, Myntra was exploring options to boost engagement and brand awareness in an innovative way. The main objective of the PicsArt-Myntra campaign was to engage customers while leaving a lasting impression in their minds during EORS. This was a one-of-a-kind activity, where Myntra had two ‘replays’ integrated on the PicsArt app. A ‘replay’ is a step-by-step guide that allows users to recreate an entire series of professional editing effects on their images.

To further increase viewability and engagement, a ‘replay challenge’ was run on PicsArt, which attracted significant traction from its user base. The winner of the challenge received vouchers and gifts worth Rs 50,000 from Myntra. This created buzz and excitement and lured users to participate in the challenge multiple times.

Myntra VP – marketing Achint Setia said the activity not only resulted in a high engagement rate for the etailer, but also created a permanent shelf space in the user’s phone by establishing a greater brand recall.

“It is so refreshing to observe people engaging with Myntra and taking the time to edit their images. Innovative campaigns like these create a lifelong brand salience, build rapport and strengthen the trust between the brand and its consumers,” he added.

PicsArt India country head Ravish Jain shared, “PicsArt users are tech savvy, socially active, and aware of ongoing trends. They love to engage, consume, and create new and fresh content frequently. Our new replay functionality was the perfect way to engage users with the Myntra brand, and this campaign was unlike something they had done before. It was great to see millions of people in India viewing the branded content and even more of a delight to see thousands of PicsArt users participate in the challenge.”

Ventes Avenues co-founder Fauzan Rahim commented, “The success of the Myntra-PicsArt campaign has opened several opportunities for brands to advertise, innovate and create awareness. We are proud to announce our partnership with PicsArt and we hope this serves as a relevant platform for brands to engage meaningfully and ‘go beyond the filter’. We would like to thank Myntra for taking this leap of faith and trusting us; these numbers are very encouraging, and I am sure many brands will connect with us on this.”
