Here are some key insights that brands need to consider before kickstarting campaigns on Twitter:
- Tap into current issues – Remember to always pay attention to current and relevant trends that you can anchor your campaign on. Brands should learn a thing or two from Cream Silk (@CreamsilkPH).

- Be relatable and humorous – Showing that your brand has a humanistic side is a perfect way to engage and connect with the audience. People react to amusing topics, and most of the Tweets that become viral are either funny, inspiring, or thought-provoking. Use Twitter to know what topics your target audience cares about and incorporate it into your campaigns.
- Video works! – Brands in the Philippines are investing in creative video campaigns to promote their latest products and engage with target demographics. Pond’s Philippines (@PondsPH) went big in 2019 with its #SeeWhatHappens campaign that features the most beloved and sought after Filipino influencers as they highlighted the advantages of facing our insecurities head-on.
