Usually, we see brands celebrating their milestones by sharing their own stories but EarlySalary went one step ahead by making it into a 2-way communication and where customers could thank EarlySalary back for helping them in the time of the need.
With the use of technology, EarlySalary created a virtual handshake feature in the app that was triggered when the customers shook their smartphone. It allowed customers to unlock exciting prizes as a reward for their association with the company on the momentous occasion of achieving the 1 million salary advances mark.
Here’s how EarlySalary executed the campaign:
Call for entries were also rolled out to existing customers, who were asked about their one in a million stories. To participate, they had to share their experience with EarlySalary on social media platforms using #ThanksAMillion. This hashtag went viral on Twitter and reached over 4 Million users. It was also seen trending on the Twitter platform.
Along with the ‘Virtual Handshake’ feature, customers who innovatively thanked the EarlySalary app using #ShakeHandsWithAnApp in Twitter and Facebook posts won gifts of popular brands.

This one also went viral on social media getting thousands of entries and close to 10 Million impressions on Twitter.
This was achieved by strategically partnering with popular social media giants like RVCJ Media which helped EarlySalary to spread its message using Entertaining memes rather than choosing conventional ways.
