How Wattpad Uses Storytelling to Enrich its Brand Partnerships

Wattpad is the world's largest social network of readers and writers, with 65 million hyper-engaged monthly users. With access to an extensive community of active writers and creatives, the story sharing platform is able to use the power of community and technology to aid brands and Hollywood in unleashing the full potential of their stories to consumers and audiences alike.

Last Fall, Lionsgate partnered with Wattpad in a strategic campaign that engaged its community with their film, Wonder. Using the power of the written word, Wattpad launched a writing contest asking fans to submit short stories of moments when kindness prevailed. To sustain promotion and engagement around the release of Wonder, Wattpad and Lionsgate enlisted the help of Tongal's filmmaker community to transform the three winning short stories into short films. The result was a highly engaged target audience, millions of views, and a recent nomination for the Digiday Award for “Best User Generated Content”. Check out the case study and video below for more details on this winning partnership:
