Trying to build a deeper connect with the audience through topical marketing, this non-intrusive contextual marketing with relatable content served when the IPL matches are on seems to have struck a chord with cricket fans.
“IPL came after months of lockdown and we knew that people were going to be glued to the TV. Besides, the rapid pace of digital adoption and the lack of outdoor entertainment during COVID-19 offered a good opportunity for us to ride the buzz by sharing relatable content to the audience.
