mCanvas, the experiential storytelling ad platform for small screens, and Merkle Sokrati, a technology-enabled, data-driven customer experience management (CXM) company, have created a mobile-led campaign for distribution of mutual funds on Freecharge, the digital payment service platform. The ad uses advanced motion sensors to boost user engagement in a way.
In order to effectively communicate the brand’s message, mCanvas created an interactive ad concept that would educate their target audience about the process of investing in mutual funds, help uncomplicate the user’s journey of mutual fund investment, while also showcasing the benefits of such an investment.
Using the accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensors, users are encouraged to take a physical step forward to reveal the first step of growing their wealth. On doing this, the message on the screen transitions to ‘First you plant the seed by becoming investment ready’, followed by the copy ‘Complete one time registration for Mutual Funds on Freecharge’. Prompting users to take another step forward, the ad then displays the second step – ‘Then you nourish it with monthly Mutual Fund investments’.
Lastly, the ad reveals the final step of growing their wealth – ‘And finally you reap the sweet fruit!’, when users take another step forward. Thereafter, the creative transitions to the closing screen with relevant branding, along with a video commercial. The CTA ‘Invest Now’, at the bottom of the screen directs users to the brand’s landing page for more information on Mutual Funds.
