The Challenge

Humble Bundle faced significant hurdles in penetrating the Chinese market, with very little brand recognition locally. This was compounded by a lack of localised marketing materials, the absence from Chinese social media, and inaccessibility to local paid media channels. Additionally, navigating government regulations and obtaining necessary approvals posed considerable challenges. There was a critical need for localisation of marketing content and the website to cater to the Chinese audience. 

The Solution

The primary objective was to boost Humble Bundle's brand awareness within China, particularly focusing on its monthly subscription service, Humble Choice. The strategy aimed to leverage local social and paid media platforms to drive brand recognition and sales. 

A tailored marketing strategy for China was developed, encompassing extensive market research, management of paid and social media within China, and localisation of creative content.
