What were their objectives?
The company's main objective was to thoroughly comprehend the consumer behavior in the online gambling industry in Europe, Latin America, and Africa. Additionally, generations' attitudes and motivations for gaming, focusing on millennials and Generation Z, were added to the project.
The channels for driving brand discovery and launching marketing communications to facilitate market penetration and early adoption by the target audience were among the client's main requirements.
What was the approach?
We Are Casino contacted Toucan Insights to develop a challenging project that focused on understanding the global online gambling industry and consumer behavior to make the digital implementations needed to succeed in the selected markets.
Knowing that the company had more than 3000 gaming options and its business areas focused on developing games, aggregating content, offering turnkey solutions and managing casinos, we started our approach by identifying their main competitors and their offerings in the markets where the company wanted to focus.
The initial phase sought to select the best markets in Europe, Latin America and Africa for We Are Casino to penetrate with a perfectly defined offer.
Here, we first considered the regulatory system and entry barriers in each country. Moreover, we conducted an in-depth consumer research that included the preferred games by online type, the top 3 global attitudes and motivations for gambling, and we analyzed the generational attitudes and behaviors for gambling (millennials and gen z).
Gender differences in gambling were also included in the study.
From this initial research phase, we ended up selecting 6 countries in Europe (United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy and Germany), 6 in Latin America (Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Chile and Panama) and 5 in Africa (South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria and Uganda).
The next phase focused on determining the best approach for social media and the best channels for boosting brand discovery and marketing communications to facilitate market penetration and early adoption of the target audience.
Finally, we developed a quarterly strategic plan that focused on conducting marketing actions on 6 different channels, including organic and paid options.
The core of the strategy was to develop optimized content with keywords to promote the games. Additionally, we selected the social media channels and planned the strategy for them. Paid advertising was part of the strategy in selected markets to boost brand awareness.
What were the
After finishing the project, and among the results, We Are Casino decided to apply for licenses to operate in Latin American countries.
The company's plan includes developing the European and African regions in a second phase.
The social media following is above 3,000 and counting, with content posted regularly on the platforms. Several public relations actions in key media have driven attention to the firm, sparking interest in the target audience.
From an organic perspective, the website was optimized with key recommendations, and since then, the games have seen an average increase of +200% in the number of players.
