MSF Families for Life Promotes FB Live Video Through SMS Marketing

SMS Marketing by MSF Families for Life - Digital Marketing Agency Singapore

SMS marketing avails a good, cost-effective channel for organisations to reach out to their customers. With a database of subscribers who have opted-in to receive marketing messages, SMS marketing avoids crowded online channels to go direct to audiences’ inboxes.

Promoting a Facebook Live video through SMS Marketing

Recently, the Ministry of Social and Family Development carried out an SMS blast to alert their subscribers of an upcoming Families for Life Facebook broadcast that may be of interest to them – elegantly bridging the gap between the more traditional channel and the online world of social media.

Singapore Influencer Mr Brown Endorses Share-the-Care Campaign

To promote the Families for Life Council’s (FFL) “Share-the-Care” movement, the Ministry of Social and Family Development collaborated with Mr Brown (aka Lee Kin Mun) – a well-liked influencer in Singapore. The famed comedian and “Blogfather” of Singapore shared the “Kim Huat and the Ribbon” video across his social media channels, which gained immediate attention with over 100,000 views and 660 shares overnight.

Initiated as part of the #SGUnited efforts, the movement encourages families to bond with one another and other families to show their support for our community’s unsung heroes who are tirelessly battling against the COVID-19 outbreak. These include the people “who keep our community clean and safe or those who help us go about our lives normally such as the cleaners in our estates, bus drivers, school bus drivers and so forth.

The campaign was boosted through influencer marketing, which helped spread the information faster and broader on social media. Mr Brown has a massive fan base of 411.8k followers on Twitter, 103.7k on Facebook, 35.3k on Instagram, and 42.4k on YouTube – a great booster that led to the campaign’s incredible initial results. The video received nearly 11k views on Instagram, 80.7k on Facebook, 7.9k on Twitter, and 4.8k on YouTube.
