CoinSwitch Kuber has announced the launch of its new ad campaign, ‘Trade Kar, Befikar’. Aimed at young and tech-savvy Indians, the campaign puts the spotlight on the crypto-mania sweeping the nation with new investors deposing their faith in cryptocurrency as an alternate asset class for smart investments.
Created by Nihilent, the campaign consists of three interconnected ad films that represent a couple’s journey through the first week of their child’s birth and how investing in cryptocurrency could help them achieve their financial goals.
Actor Kunaal Roy Kapur has been roped in to play all the roles in the ad films. The campaign will be aired on Disney+ Hotstar throughout the Indian Premier League and will also be amplified using social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to reiterate Kuber’s positioning as the go to cryptocurrency investment platform for retail investors.
Since the launch of the ad campaign, the company has seen a 3.5x growth in user signups across all channels. “Our funnels have improved and customer acquisition cost (CAC) for performance marketing has decreased significantly. Indians form 10% of the world’s crypto investors, says coins switch Kuber.
We have achieved the objective of bringing crypto mainstream and Twitter is flooded with quotes around the same. We are happy to have led the way,” he told a news portal.
