Indonesia (Vocus) July 1, 2010
XL Axiata-one of the largest mobile services operators in Indonesia – launched the XL Blackberry Gaul ad campaign targeting the youth market. Knowing that the youth is the most price sensitive audience segment, XL wanted to strengthen and develop brand loyalty within their existing consumer base, even as they attract new consumers. To stay ahead of their competitors that had saturated TV, print and outdoor media, XL partnered with Admax Network to increase their reach and engagement online. Through the Admax Youth Channel, XL aimed to delve wider and deeper into the youth market.
- Target trendy youth age 13 to 19 years old.
- Raise brand engagement and loyalty by reaching youth in an interactive and content-rich environment.
- Increase awareness of the package and traffic to the website.
To achieve the campaign objectives, XL ran online ads in the Admax Network Youth Channel to target tech-savvy and trendy young Internet users—91% of which are between 13-19 years old. The youth channel's niched and localized content is more relevant to this youth segment and has produced more engaged audiences which are highly responsive to the brand's messages. In addition, Admax Network proprietary optimization platform dynamically and continuously adjusted the campaign to ensure that the XL ads were delivered to the right and most responsive audiences.
The month-long campaign was a remarkable success. The Admax Network Youth Channel outperformed all other online advertising media by extending the campaign's reach to over 1.27 million unique users, far exceeding its target number of website visitors by 140%.
XL was very impressed with the campaign results that they signed more campaigns with Admax Network for their other products. "Admax Network's youth channel has been instrumental in delivering our brand messages to the right audiences. They exceeded our expectations, and the team has always been proactively working with us to develop the most effective solutions for our needs," says Turina Farouk, XL Axiata VP for Marketing Communication.
