These brands are both woke and entertaining!
The wonders one witnessed on social media with different brands and their innovation is growing every year. While some faced serious flak online, some rejoiced in their new-found popularity. What we do know is that despite this, they keep getting better and there’s no stopping the creativity of the brands.
They laughed at themselves, took digs on other brands, and even made fun of us! But in doing so, they successfully bridged the gap between a brand and its consumers, and how wonderfully! Here’s a roundup of some of our favourite brands, ones that not only promoted their products on social media but made their pages a fun, wholesome place while doing so.
Right from witty replies to their interactions with other brands, there isn’t anything Swiggy can’t do perfectly. Out of everything else, our top favourite moment has to be Swiggy’s support for the farmers’ protest.
This tweet led to #BoycottSwiggy trending on Twitter, but the brand didn’t back down and let the tweet stay online despite the trolling. They’re not the number one social media marketing brand for no reason.
