Nostalgia is beautiful

Nostalgia is a great theme for heartfelt occasions like Father’s Day – an occasion when everyone wants to declare their love for their fathers and appreciate their role as a friend, guide, and mentor. You can subtly tap into this emotional upsurge to connect with your audience at a personal level.

Campaigns we like

HDFC’s  2020 campaign did just that. Positioning a daughter as the spender and the father as the first financial advisor, the campaign showcases the father-daughter bond as the narrative slowly goes down memory lane and quickly reconnects with the brand again. On the other hand, this campaign by Luminous simply puts forward a message of appreciation using a powerful monologue without trying hard to connect the campaign directly to the brand.

With a nostalgic campaign, brands can subtly tap into the emotional upsurge to connect with the audience at a personal level, encouraging them to declare their love and appreciation for their fathers. Click To Tweet

Your Influencer Marketing campaign can tap into these lighter moments and be an opportunity for your audience to participate and share a few laughs.

Have fun together

If there’s a theme that’s extremely popular amongst users on social media platforms, it is the campaigns revolving around fun activities – challenges, lip-sync battles, dance-offs, competitions, and so on. Bringing on board an influencer that your audience relates to can do wonders for your brand’s outreach and increase audience interaction. It is also a great way to improve your collection of User-Generated Content. 

Campaigns we like

Connecting colours to convey the importance of good health and wellness, the #NerolacYogaWithDad campaign kept it simple, delivered a strong message while also encouraging the audience to participate. Although not directly launched for Father’s Day, this recent campaign by Amazon Prime Video for the promotion of the new season for Family Man is a fun take on the father-child relationship.

Influencers can help position your product or service as the perfect Father's Day gift, promote offers & drive sales. But, to achieve the expected conversion, your campaign should evoke emotions in the audience first. Click To Tweet

The gift of love

Who doesn’t appreciate a thoughtful gift? Influencers can help position your product or service as the perfect Father’s Day gift, and the campaign can promote offers and drive sales. But, while your final goal may be that, your content should be creatively and smartly conceptualised. To achieve the conversion you expect, influencers can first help evoke emotions in your audience and then subtly imply that your product or service is their go-to Father’s Day gift.

Campaigns we like

Bombay Shaving Company’s 4-part campaign #DadLogic focussed on celebrating the witty side of fathers and ended with Father’s Day being the right time to choose the brand’s razors as a gift. 

Campaign ideas you might want to try
  1. Groom Your Dads
    • Young influencers teach their father to use grooming products (face packs/face scrubs)
    • They could inject subtle humour into the campaign as fathers upgrade their ‘beauty routine’.
    • Giveaways/gifts from brands could include standalone products or a hamper.
  2. What is it?
    • Influencer blindfolds dad and asks him to identify what the products are?
    • Depending on the products, the campaign can be based on food tasting, tickling the olfactory senses, identifying the texture of clothes, etc.
    • Giveaways / gift from brands could include goodie baskets or discount coupons 
  3. Dad Takeovers  
    • Dad takes over Influencer’s social media account, uses their product on a live video 
    • Dad gives a review of the product and speaks about how the influencer got him this amazing gift. 
    • This campaign would be great with Influencers you’ve already worked with.

Father’s Day brings immense possibilities for you to connect with your audience creatively, but you also have to be mindful that this day is different from other celebrations and that it has a deep emotional connection running through it. In your Influencer-led campaign, you can choose to directly associate your brand’s message with a product or service that you offer, or you can opt for an indirect path to convey how you appreciate an occasion that celebrates fatherhood. But, no matter which route you take, it is important to align your brand values with the campaign because nothing works better than showing the audience that your brand upholds the same sentiments as they do, especially for a heartfelt occasion like Father’s Day.
