Muslims actively participate in mosque gatherings, religious ceremonies, and other social activities during Ramadan, one of the most significant religious holidays in Islam. This boosts user engagement on social media and improves platform traffic. As Ramadan traffic surged, Ragnarok Origin partnered with SnackVideo to promote its brand. The campaign significantly outperformed expectations, with stronger brand awareness and user mindset.
Ragnarok Origin chose SnackVideo, a platform with over 43 million monthly active users in Indonesia, as the primary battlefield in order to immediately capture the traffic during Ramadan. As a new traffic bonus channel for local Chinese brands going overseas, SnackVideo can meet the needs of brands in various fields, such as increasing exposure, expanding new users, and improving performance and conversions.
In addition, the up to 90% user match has quickly captured the hearts of Ragnarok Origin's marketing team. In the campaign, Ragnarok Origin precisely targeted the financially capable males aged 25-36 in Indonesia to maximize the marketing effect.
