A bright and beautiful Thursday morning. Ryan was jogging back home after an hour-long exercise. Upon reaching home, he sat down relaxing, while checking messages on his mobile. It happened to be his birthday and he was delighted to see birthday wishes from his besties. He decided to offer a treat to his friends in the evening. Well, his birthday was the perfect excuse to hang out with them and spend some wonderful time together.
A movie buff, he thoroughly enjoyed going to films with his friends. He checked for availability of movie tickets on a movie ticket booking app. Yes! Tickets were available for the movie of his choice. He readily posted his movie plan in his friends chat group, and very soon, he got thumbs up and claps from half a dozen of his friends!
He booked the tickets in no time!
While Ryan was returning home after the movie, he noticed an old man on the street. He seemed weak and looked like he hadn’t eaten for days together. Ryan really wanted to help the man in some way. He thought of buying some food for the poor man. But, he couldn’t find any shops nearby.
That’s when the image of an SMS flashed in his mind. Ryan quickly scanned his phone for an SMS from a food delivery app with a coupon code, that he had received during the day. He swiftly installed the app from the link in the SMS and ordered a meal. Within minutes, a delivery boy on a bike brought a food packet and Ryan gifted it to the poor man.
Well, digital marketing to the rescue! Imagine its powerful impact and endless possibilities!
