Collaboration with Service Provider.
The best idea is to collaborate with Internet Service Provider citing that Wikipedia is free and users browsing via that provider will not have to spend bytes while browsing Wikipedia.

AudienceEdit

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?Edit

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
Casual Internet Users

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?Edit

English, Hindi

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?Edit

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
WhatsApp

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?Edit

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
Generally, people search over pieces of stuff in the search engine and click on the first link to get ideas. However, they have no idea that in Wikipedia everything is sorted and all the information is in one place. Once they get to know the charm of it, from next time onwards, they will make sure to open Wikipedia only.
