Whenever upGrad was creating content for its campaign #KaamKiDegree (a useful degree) to reach young, ambitious working adults, it continually explored different avenues regarding new to realize what content would reverberate with its audience. upGrad collaborated with more than 70 creators to deliver videos in a variety of styles, and ultimately found its audience enjoys comedy-style learning content. After a video joint effort with entertainer Kumar Varun pulled in 440,000 perspectives, upGrad changed its YouTube content strategy to invest more in similar partnerships with comedy creators.
For instance, upGrad collaborated with YouTube personality and comedian BeYouNick to create “The Office Canteen,” a series of quirky sketches based on real-life scenarios set in a typical Indian office cafeteria, hence the series namesake. The series leaned into the comedian’s personal style of creative storytelling to naturally incorporate mentions of upGrad’s educational courses and their benefits into the storyline and dialogue.
