Moonton approached us with the objective to increase the number of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang’s players from all age groups in Malaysia by 50%. Besides, they would also like to also create excitement to regain churned players back to the game.
We were aware that they have a substantial online fanbase with more than 13 million followers.
While just making an online campaign is inadequate to disrupt the gaming scene in Malaysia, we knew just what we had to do!
Therefore, we built our strategies around the main motivator of the game – experience.
We generated an actionable strategy targeting Moonton’s brief and objective. The strategy focuses on enhancing players’ experience and impression through the campaign.
Due to the scale of the campaign, it was crucial to keep the campaign on an effective and efficient budget for the client. Hence, an in-depth market survey was done to ensure we are able to see a positive outcome after the campaign.
As Moonton's only representative marketing agency in Malaysia for the #515Unite campaign, we were in charge of coordinating with different parties involved in this campaign.
We were in touch with relevant authorities for licensing approval for the event to take place, several mall managements, on-ground crews, respective Mobile Legends campaign partners, production crew and etc.
This was fully managed by us to provide convenience and ease of communication to Moonton.
Finally, the Jumix team were present during all on-ground events to scrutinize and collaborate the implementation process of the campaign.
