ABOUT WORLDREMIT

WorldRemit is an online money transfer service that helps migrants from developing countries working in developed countries to send money to friends and family through its mobile app and web service.

This London-headquartered scale-up is one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the UK.

We have been working with the company since 2015 as a full time marketing agency. Our job is to help them with all their marketing activation in UK, Nordic, Germany and Uganda.

 

CHALLENGE

Despite being less convenient for the sender and generally worse value for money, many migrants prefer to use Offline money transfer instead of Online to send money home. Worldremit wanted to change that by raising awareness of its service benefits with receivers so to encourage their sender to use WorldRemit to send them money.
