Most social media brand content around Independence Day seems to be offers and contests. Fans certainly won’t be disappointed with so many Independence Day sales all around. The more patriotic content that showcases the achievements that independent India has made over seven decades is a sure winner as well. Video content is getting a lot of eyeballs too. As you probably noticed, copy around the theme of ‘Freedom’ that projects their brand and their products are doing extremely well.
