In recent times, brands have been looking for alternate solutions to engage with their audience. One that found success is the utilization of short videos on UGC platforms. UGC has helped brands engage with audiences in new and exciting ways. It has also bridged the gap between audience and brands as it brings the former closer to the latter. 

ZEE5 recently launched a new short format content platform - HiPi. It is integrated within the ZEE5 app and allows brands and users to create short videos. The platform aims to encourage self-expression and to unlock the potential talent that the country is brimming with. It’s a social media platform where everyone can express themselves with freedom and confidence and will be a destination for all things entertainment.
