Overview of the event

As 2020 progresses, the digital marketing landscape that encompasses SEO, social media, PPC, content marketing and more is witnessing a dramatic shift – which businesses can no longer ignore. There may have been a time when you could’ve dismissed artificial intelligence or visual search as gimmicks from the latest blockbuster science fiction film, but that time is long gone.

There are many new digital marketing trends and strategies that are evolving in the current high-tech era and businesses now need to use them to succeed in their efforts. The key is to stay on top of the trends and figure out what is the best for your business today. What was worked for you in a previous year may not work this year as new trends continuously keep on emerging.

X Topic Abstract

- I will be covering two global social media campaigns which were unconventional and first in class. Social Media Stories, Breaking Barriers - Achieving Excellence Coolest Interview Ever campaign: #CoolestInterviewEver: In 2013, HCL’s Digital marketing team led by Gaurav Kakkar, came up with unconventional idea of launching World’s first ever end-to-end Recruitment Campaign on Twitter. There has been no instance of using social media platform for recruitment. Initially, this idea was thrashed by leadership team , citing that idea is crazy & how can interview be conducted openly on a social media platform. But HCL’s digital team did not give up. Slowly, the team gathered the support and broke all barriers to launch the campaign. The fundamental objective was to project HCL as a preferred employer brand amongst the 32 countries where HCL operates. Outcome of this campaign exceeded the benchmarks. Total engagement from prospective job seekers was 250 K with candidates participating from 60 countries. While the total spend on this initiative was equal to the average spend on recruiting one employee, it ranks as one of the most impactful outreaches in social media history having been covered by more than 60 international publications . It has resulted in HCL technologies enjoying a refreshed and strengthened employer brand in more than 60 countries and more followers on Twitter than any other IT services organization in the world.

A Mile for her: #aMileForHer: Illiteracy is a global problem and statistics paint a gloomy picture. As per UNESCO, there are 775 million adults lacking minimum literacy skills and 66% of these are women. While organizations and NGOs have been actively using social media to raise awareness about women literacy, there has never been a more effective social media campaign to engage youth, millennials, global influencers, and professionals to enable community support for the cause. #aMileForHer is a CSR campaign launched by HCL Technologies in March 2015. Simply put, the concept of the campaign was “ To celebrate the women in your life - walk, jog or run a mile for her and HCL will match your miles by empowering under privileged women through digital literacy initiatives”. One of the major barrier of the campaign was to encourage people’s participation. The campaign extensively leveraged social media channels for driving awareness about women empowerment through literacy and the change individuals can bring. Unsurprisingly, there were numerous impactful outcomes, the most important being the initiation of empowerment of more than 1,00,000+ under privileged women. Geographically, the campaign reached more than 50 countries and touched thousands across the globe. Launched under the hashtag #aMileForHer, the campaign was trending on Twitter in India for two days. Global technology influencers from US, Europe, APAC endorsed the campaign, voicing full support and participation. Campaign video case study: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuJv07jeOak&t=13s
