The Singapore National Day is a special annual holiday celebrated in the country every 9th August. This year, the Lion City celebrates its 52nd birthday. The patriotic spirit was felt all over the city-state, from hearing the National Say songs on replay and seeing national flags hung in every household.
Of course, Singaporeans were spotted on streets all dressed in red and white. The festive season is always a good time for marketing, especially social media marketing, as it is able to capture audience attention effectively.
On this year’s National Day, we witnessed how brands were actively involved in social media marketing. Many brands fought to carry out enticing digital marketing campaigns on social media to engage their supporters and to promote their brand.

Panasonic Singapore celebrated National Day in a fresh and exciting way on social media. In collaboration with a social media agency in Singapore, IH Digital, an interesting national day GIF was created for their Facebook page.
The GIF created was not just any ordinary GIF. It was made into a puzzle and the order was jumbled up with a hidden message behind it.
This unusual way of social media marketing is able to arouse the audiences’ curiosity and capture their attention readily. The audience would have to unravel the puzzle, figure out the hidden message, take a screenshot, write a birthday message for Singapore and share it.
This new content marketing strategy is interactive and engaging; it is able to bring forth the fun element and excites the audience.
To celebrate the nation’s birthday, Filial Piety Singapore gave out $30 worth of Westgate dinning vouchers to 10 lucky winners. Filial Piety engaged their supporters through an interactive GIF and Facebook contest.

To take part, all supporters would have to simply watch the GIF, count the number of fireworks that lit up the Singapore skyline and share how they are going to spend this holiday with their family on the Facebook post. By doing so, supporters would stand a chance of winning food vouchers.
