The Chinese New Year festive season is coming soon in February 2021. Shopee’s hotly anticipated 2.2 CNY sale is now on with Shopee’s 2.2 CNY Sale – First “Ox-picious” content collaboration with Mediacorp. This is the inaugural content-commerce partnership between Shopee and Mediacorp, that 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 22nd January to 2nd February 2021.
This alliance between Shopee and Mediacorp aligned both companies’ commitment to driving innovation in the e-commerce sector through creating content that caters to the evolving purchasing preferences of online consumers. This is also an initiative that will go towards supporting local digital businesses and merchants.
Under this partnership, Mediacorp will tap on its star power, content creation know-how and transmedia touch points to amplify public awareness and direct shoppers to Shopee’s platform. There would include interactive live streaming sessions helmed by popular Mediacorp personalities from 1st and 2nd February 2021. There would also be special sale previews and giveaways on Mediacorp platforms starring Ah Moo, its adorable mascot for the Year of the Ox.
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!”
Parminder Singh, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Mediacorp said: “We are ushering in the new year on a bullish note with yet another e-commerce milestone for Mediacorp. In our collaboration with Shopee, we look to leverage our content solutions and storytelling strength to drive retail success for its e-merchants. This also underscores Mediacorp’s dedication to work with like-minded companies to grow the wider e-commerce ecosystem, which continues to see healthy growth, driven increasingly by livestreaming and interactive e-commerce. We look forward to many more of such exciting and innovative partnerships.”
