With the increase in lifestyle and critical illnesses, it has become pertinent for people to follow a healthy lifestyle and manage their health and with this campaign; Max Bupa is urging people to take small steps towards leading a healthier and fitter lifestyle.
Most often people think that taking care of their health needs a lot of time and effort; however it is not about time but making small lifestyle changes towards making health a habit which certainly has varied benefits. People find innumerable excuses to not follow their daily health routine, such as not being able to wake up early, unexpectedly late working hours, difficulty in resisting junk, etc.
Max Bupa has been amplifying the campaign across its social media channels through engaging content, videos, and also collaborated with digital influencers like Pallavi Ruhail, Megha Sarin, Aman Singh Virk among others to promote the campaign and encourage their followers to adopt a healthy routine. As part of the campaign, Max Bupa is also running a contest asking people to share videos, photos and voice notes of their health mantra and how they managed to overcome their health excuses. So far, 500+ people have already participated in the contest and shared their videos and photos of eating healthy food to indulging in physical activities like swimming, going to gym etc.
In addition, Max Bupa has also been promoting the campaign on Radio City through quirky engagements and fun content. The radio campaign has been kick started across 11 cities during primetime slots to symbolize how through simple lifestyle changes such as eating fruits rather than junk, drinking ample amount of water, standing and walking more often, etc. one can lead a healthier life. During this integrated social media and radio outreach, the campaign garnered 3.6 Cr+ impressions on social media and other digital channels.
