India’s favourite instant noodle brand ‘Maggi’ has recently launched a new product, Oats Noodles and they have roped in Madhuri Dixit Nene to represent this new product launch to spread awareness across the nation that health is enjoyable with the new commercial. We all have grown up eating Maggi be it during lunch, dinner, snack, midnight grub or as and when we want to satiate our craving.

The sentiment surrounding the tweets is mainly neutral and positive, reason being due to the influencers and the positive ripples they have caused through their posts. There are some negative tweets surrounding this brand, but it represents a minor chunk in the graph. Most of those negative tweets, are about Maggi being unhealthy and not a good food choice!

We handpicked couple of tweets with the breakfast selfie and hashtag #HealthyIsEnjoyable, which literally had us drooling!

Maggi has nowhere mentioned that participants must buy the Nestle product. But to increase their chances of winning, most of the users are eating Maggie and clicking snapshots of those. I liked the fact that they didn’t push their product too hard. Great way to increase purchase intent and the images which are being tweeted to them by the second/hour can be used by Maggi as customer testimonials.

Maggi is slowly and steadily entering into the health segment, first with the launch of the Atta Noodles and now the Oats Noodle. By creating buzz on social media, it is a great way to increase your brands awareness and visibility of the new product. By promoting the contest with the hastag #HealthyIsEnjoyable, is a very smart way to instil it in the mind of users that Maggi is healthy as well.
