CHALLENGE

Can a New Crypto Casino Capture the SEA Market?

96.com aims to test the Southeast Asian market, but ‘crypto’ and ‘new casino’ are terms that raise concerns about safety and security. Additionally, 96.com is launching exclusively in English, which is often a second or third language for the target market. This language barrier poses a significant challenge in reaching and engaging potential customers.

96.com is starting from scratch, sharing customer service, operations, and development resources with its other brands. This resource sharing adds another layer of complexity to the launch, making it crucial to maximize efficiency and impact with limited resources.

SOLUTION

Fast Bets, Faster Wins

We positioned 96.com as a safe and fast online gaming platform. While promotions are common across brands, we focused on building a strong, trustworthy brand that offers a seamless experience.

Building Trust & Speed

Everything we do emphasizes our commitment to speed and safety:

  • Marketing Imagery: We used visuals of F1 cars and MotoGP motorcycles to symbolize speed and professionalism. We also hired top iGaming specialized creatives for the brand.

  • Reputable Partnerships: Leveraged brand logos from reputable game providers to establish stability and familiarity.

  • Advanced Tools: Integrated leading systems like MyAffiliates for affiliate marketing and Optimove for CRM to enhance performance and user experience.

Strategic Targeting

We targeted regions with higher crypto adoption such as the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, maximizing our market impact in areas where crypto is already gaining traction.

STRATEGY

Affiliates and Game Providers

We capitalized on the strong reputations of 96.com’s big providers, such as Evolution and Pragmatic Play. These providers and their network promotions were central to our marketing efforts, aimed at establishing familiarity and trust with new players. Notably, the network promotions featured large pool amounts funded by the providers, not 96.com, adding to their appeal and less of a financial burden on 96.com.

Leveraging Affiliates and Influencers

  • Established Affiliates: We enlisted established affiliates to write reviews about 96.com, bolstering trust and providing the initial player boost.

  • Influencers: Engaged influencers to hype the brand and generate user-generated content, which we repurposed for our paid media campaigns.

Comprehensive Campaigns

Digirockstars went all out for 96.com, with dedicated social media, community, and SEO teams working on post-launch campaigns and micro SEOs sites, to ensure sustained engagement and growth.
