Ravinder Singh is one of Penguins best-selling authors in the romantic-fiction space. Having garnered a fanbase that has spread far and wide through his touching narrations I too had a love story and Love can happen twice, his third book was an attempt to break away from the romance novel space by delving into a bit of nostalgia driven content.Like ItHappenedYesterdayRavinder Singh

Two Fold:

Introduce his passionate fans to another side of the authors writing. One that went beyond the romance genre his fans had grown so accustomed to

Create an engaging social media campaign that was innovative, endearing and viral in nature

Since the current fan base was already thirsty for Ravinders next offering, the campaign route adopted was to first digress from expectations of another love story and build anticipation with respect to the books contentSOLUTION

This was done through a simple & perspective changing contest that asked users about Ravinders early childhood

The contest seeded intrigue about the authors early life and childhood and set the tone for the upcoming promotional content

Over 4000 entries were received over a two week period, allowing one winner to be a special guest at the book launch when it did happen

We now had to build up the main phase of the campaign. This involved getting the message of the book release out in the public domain and viral

A virtual book cover reveal challenge sent the impending book release viral by allowing users to uncover the book collectively through a share application

2000 shares were achieved within 3 days unravelling the entire cover and exposing the campaign to over 4 lakh individuals on Facebook alone

Encouraged, we added to the virality by taking users down memory lane encouraging a basic picbadge campaign along with teasing nostalgia based posts

The content encouraged sharability and built up to the final bit of intrigue An animated voiceover trailer that took users into what the book had to offer in a personal waySOLUTION
