With social media continually on the rise, meme  marketing has transformed hundreds of brands' social  media marketing strategies. The millions of memes  posted each day on social media can't be escaped,  regardless of the app, you use. With the ability to go  viral and increase brand exposure, these memes are  now being utilised by many as their core communication  strategy.  

Recently MemeChat, a social media app, well known for  curating quirky memes, developed a campaign for Moj,  an Indian video-sharing social networking platform. The  campaign used tools like meme marketing and content  seeding to connect with GenZs and millennials and  create engagement and recall of the platform.
