2024 Influencer Marketing: Brands Success Stories

. Unacademy

An essential Indian player in the sphere of online education, Unacademy managed to implement an influencer marketing campaign in 2024 to increase awareness of the new product called Unacademy One.

The results of the campaign are quite impressive since the campaign gathered more than 520K+ impressions and reached 510+ different users. Such outcomes were achieved through practical cooperation with social media influencers who produced more than 50 engaging content pieces.

Domino’s, a global leader in pizza delivery since its establishment in 1960, developed a well-targeted influencer marketing campaign to sell its “BUY ONE AND GET ONE PIZZA FREE” offer in the Gujarat region. Also, the campaign targeted creators in vernacular languages and those adept at making trending and relatable content to introduce the new NONG pizzas.

Dominoes leveraged the scope of localised content, geographical targeting and influencer partnerships to maximise audience reach and engagement. This increased the visibility of their promotional offers further and efficiently initiated new products for regional audiences. 


. Swiggy Instamart

Swiggy Instamart utilised India’s top chefs, food review influencers and critics to showcase how easy it is to buy essential cooking ingredients through the Swiggy app. This YouTube campaign incorporated Swiggy Instamart products into the food featured, showing that users can easily create delicious recipes at home using ingredients directly from Swiggy.

. Nykaa

Nykaa, an online beauty merchandise store and the most significant online beauty and wellness store in India, has used a unique approach to influencer marketing to amplify brand awareness and sales. Strategies like celebrity endorsements are particularly influential for beauty products. Celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Janhvi Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt have bolstered Nykaa’s online presence and brought them real traffic and conversions.
