As part of iQIYI’s expansion to the Southeast Asian market and leveraging the timely market demand, iQIYI wanted to boost its brand awareness and promote its Asian-oriented content optimally in the Thailand market. At the same time, iQIYI wanted to maintain a cohesive brand image while adding local flavors to the campaign when entering a new market. As a brand that values originality and audience engagements, iQIYI, too, wanted a brand activation campaign that can generate not only maximum reach, but also high engagement rates from the targeted new market. iQIYI was looking to create a viral marketing campaign to be the new buzz of the town.
Aligning with iQIYI’s objectives and brand image, we recommended a fully-optimized TikTok Hashtag Challenge package, named #iQIYIWithYou. The Hashtag Challenge (HTC) package includes an official branded hashtag challenge, customizable branded video effect, official music and official video. We also worked with several KOLS in Thailand to participate on the campaign by using customize branded effect such as shareable stickers, filter and special effects. To further amplify the campaign, we boosted iQIYI’s visibility and participation rate by using strategic TikTok ads to promote KOL-generated content and the hashtag challenge.
