CHALLENGE

WorldRemit wanted to start offline campaign to target few hard to reach communities, starting primarily with Filipinos and African Diaspora living in the UK. The niche audiences have certain behaviours as well as live in various parts of the country, especially for Filipino community there is no particular location where the community is dense unlike some other ethnic communities, which makes targeting quite difficult.

  • Our task was to find effective ways to raise their awareness about the trustworthy money transfer service among the target audience
  • Educate the audience about the benefits of sending the money online, rather the offline via agents
