Bringing BFFs together with Tiger Brokers

Jun 2022 – Why trade alone when you can trade with a friend and enjoy zero comms for life! That’s the draw for our recently launched Tiger Brokers Zero Commissions campaign.

Almost everywhere is plastered with investment or brokerage ads featuring charts, rising arrows, greens, big 0s and of course, bulls. So how did we make our Tiger look different?

By standing out among the herd with colourful visuals and snappy copy, covering all the benefits of zero comms. Prowling across FB, IG, Reddit, digital takeovers and DOOHs, our series of 10 KVs kept ad fatigue low with ad rotation always ready to pounce. Certainly an invitation for all traders to trade with the tribe.

Leaping into a sustainable Tiger Year!

Feb 2022 – For Chinese New Year 2022, we ushered people on a journey, from the vibrant foliage and wildlife of the Schroders red packet to a companion microsite where recipients can do good for sustainability in the form of e-giving.

Schroders ‘Year of the Tiger: Regeneration’ campaign is about appreciating, preserving and restoring the splendour and beauty around us. Not just for the environment, but for the community. Collaborating with Singapore Children’s Society, we also helped to raise awareness for the organisation and drive donations to their cause to build a brigher year for local young cubs. The campaign was met with overwhelming approvals, and was featured by media, incl. The Straits Times, Business Times and SUPERADRIANME.

Investing into a better future with Schroders

Feb 2022 – Sustainable investing is taking centre stage. And we’re in a bullish position to make a difference! Partnering Schroders, we launched Beyond Profit, a CX-driven omnichannel campaign that spoke to the hearts of locals, showing them how investments can support their causes.

Singaporeans learned how investments can go beyond financial returns through myriad platforms: From full-page print ads and rousing videos on YouTube to website takeovers and programmatic OOHs and more. Not forgetting the new kid on the block, Tik Tok. Every campaign asset and touchpoint was strategically placed and optimised to reach target audiences and challenge them to think Beyond Profit.

The results? Demonstrable increase in awareness of sustainable investing and stronger brand association for Schroders. And we’re just getting started.

Shaking flavours up with SMH’s newest pau launch

From conceptualising media kits to creating content for the press, we helped structure and present the product’s key messages clearly and concisely–and more importantly, in an enticing way that attracted the media to bite.
