VMLY&R wins TikTok Shop business for Southeast Asia mega shopping day campaigns

SINGAPORE — Global brand and customer experience agency VMLY&R has been appointed to handle TikTok Shop’s major multimarket push around the year’s biggest online shopping days and has already delivered stunning sales for 11.11, building to the 12.12 finale. The agency received the mandate in August 2023, following a competitive pitch to deliver the 11.11 and 12.12 campaigns covering some of Southeast Asia’s biggest markets such as Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

VMLY&R has been tasked with delivering TikTok Shop’s unique “shoppertainment” proposition, bringing shopping and entertainment together as the antidote to e-tail stress and boredom during the shopping season. Double-digit shopping days have become cluttered with high-volume tactical messaging, leading to a confusing and potentially stressful shopping experience for consumers. With so many promotions, particularly towards the end of the year, TikTok Shop was keen to stand out of the crowd, whilst showing that online shopping simply doesn’t need to be this way.

VMLY&R teams in Singapore, Thailand, and Hong Kong. in partnership with TikTok Shop, launched the concept of “double” with the 11.11 campaign, doubling down on shopping and entertainment experiences. Assets include video, key visuals, and offline & digital activation ideas on the same creative platform across the markets.
