Shopee and Mediacorp are pleased to announce the inking of an inaugural content-commerce deal for Shopee’s hotly anticipated 2.2 CNY Sale. This partnership will see the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan working with Singapore’s largest content creator and national media network on a performance-driven marketing campaign from 22 January to 2 February 2021.
The alliance is aligned with both companies’ commitment to driving innovation in the e-commerce space by creating engaging content to cater to the evolving purchasing preferences of online consumers. It is also an initiative that will go towards supporting local digital businesses and merchants.
Under the partnership, Mediacorp will tap on its star power, content creation know-how and transmedia touchpoints to amplify public awareness and direct shoppers to Shopee’s platform. These include interactive livestreaming sessions helmed by popular Mediacorp personalities from 1 and 2 February, as well as special sale previews and giveaways on Mediacorp platforms starring Ah Moo, its adorable mascot for the Year of the Ox.
A spectacular stash of festive freebies and tempting deals is also up for grabs. Shoppers stand a chance to win a gleaming new Mercedes-Benz A-Class Hatchback1, and will enjoy 28 percent daily cashback offers plus daily 8pm Huat Hour Flash Sales themed around categories like health, beauty and home appliances. In addition, 888 lucky winners will get to shop for free during the campaign period on a daily basis (Terms and conditions apply).
Zhou Junjie, Chief Commercial Officer, Shopee said: “Consumers today seek elevated shopping experiences that go beyond simple transactions online – they demand personalisation, engagement, and social interaction. Shopee takes pride in our ability to connect with our users through a highly localised and engaging approach, being a proudly homegrown company ourselves. As such, we are excited to collaborate with partners like Mediacorp, whose values and priorities align with ours. With this partnership, we hope to tap on one another’s expertise to further deepen engagement with Singaporean audiences across the Lunar New Year period. Shopee remains committed to delivering all our users unique and memorable shopping experiences, and we look forward to working with Mediacorp on an exciting 2.2 CNY Sale!”
