  • Why is it interesting?

    By highlighting social impact on the campaign,

    it provides reason why the society of Indonesia

    should accept Gojek service. Instead of

    focusing on why their service is better, Gojek

    tries to associate its company with the social

    impacts it created.

    We know that in Indonesia, there are some objection toward online transportation, due to cultural shock of technology application.

    Therefore for company like Gojek, their first challenge is to educate the market toward technolgy adoption, which is a very hard task to accomplish.

  • It is considered creative because it provides a new approach of branding through delivering a social value rather than technical value.

    Moreover, storytelling methods also provides society a deeper engangement with the brand itself, since it evokes viewers emotions. And brand is about emotion.

  • The channel of this campaign, which is Youtube channel, is also a great channel choice to create more impact through number of viewers. One of the video in this campaign has

    reached more than 2 million viewers.

  • GrabBike Campaign

    Through Youtube Ads, GrabBike also launch an advertising campaign. It only uses song to deliver its brand message Gapake macet, gapake mahal, gapake lama with the melody similar to dangdut and video of Ojek driver dancing. Compared to this ads, Gojek campaign is relatively more emotionally appeling because of the story, value and video quality delivered.

  • Result

    Currently, Gojek is the top of mind brand in term of online ojek transportation in Indonesia

    with an estimation of 60-70% market share in ojek online market and have already reach

    more than 1 million order in 2015.

  • Is it implementable

    in other country?

    Since this campaign objective is delivering a brand message

    through highlighting on social impact, theres a high

    possibility of success if similar campaign is delivered

    in other country toward different product.

  • However, since Gojek campaign include delivering it brand as a part of Indonesian culture, from Indonesian to

    Indonesian therefore these value might only be applicable in Indonesia. If Gojek wants to expand to other

    country, it should change its brand message.
