Albeit slowly, the education sector is making headway with the advent of technology. From distance learning to online classes and guides, India’s EdTech industry has a variety of offerings for one and all. The long-established roadblocks in the education sector are fading away – thanks to the easy access to information and knowledge brought about by the internet along with EdTech programs and applications! Interestingly, the EdTech industry is at a point of inflection, with venture capitalists pouring funds and brands thriving remarkably well. Among others, Extramarks has demonstrated exemplary growth.

Facilitating Rewards for Commitment – The Captivating CRED Brand Marketing Strategy

A decade ago, who would have thought that paying your credit card bills on time could help you earn rewards and cashback? The people who were once credit card defaulters were optimistically pushed to pay their dues in exchange for tangible perks. What earlier seemed like coerced spending soon became a secure source of earning for credit card users.

Bengaluru-based CRED made it happen.

In the words of its founder Kunal Shah, “Nobody has been rewarded for paying back on time. We want to fix that.” And just like that, an ambitious entrepreneur with a non-tech background unearthed a crucial loophole in the credit card payment system and rose to the surface by launching a cutting-edge problem-solving application CRED in 2018. Today, both Shah and his brainchild have earned a place in the sun for establishing a first-of-its-kind platform valued at $4.01 billion (2021), an appraisement that most start-ups have taken over a decade to achieve.

The Indian beauty industry has really glossed up. In the last decade, there have been many players who are smoothing over the cosmetic experience for Indian women.

SUGAR Cosmetics is one brand that has tasted success ever since it started its journey in 2017.

It has reached the 100-crore revenue mark in just four years. This is something to applaud, considering its transition from online-only to retail mode, as well as the pandemic that thwarted physical sales since March 2020.

A constant question on the GroCurv platform is “how to grow on Instagram”.

A simple answer would be…. “ treat it like its Instagram. Not like it’s your blog in pictures. Not like its another place to put your facebook creatives”.

But given how frequent this question is, we thought we should try and illustrate what we meant by the above. Elaborate the response.

And we started to look for brands that were “Insta first”. That were using Insta as the primary marketing communication channel. While doing this, we also looked for brands that were doing in a very small budget, without any large agency support. Inhouse productions- where at most a photographer is involved to assist the owner in creating the right expression for the brand on Instagram.

Some brands are meant to be eternal. They set out to be passed down for generations, becoming household names or all. One such brand is Cadbury. That royal-coloured chocolate brand that makes everything ordinary feel extraordinary. That uplifts the everyday person into a royal realm.

The Cadbury marketing strategy has been studied for so many years. It has its impact for so many more.
