Launching New Cities Like A Boss
Voi is the innovative Scandinavian micro mobility company that offers electric scooters and bike sharing. Voi is no stranger to agile expansion and ambition, this can be seen through their vast conquest of over 35 cities in Europe (and counting). Furthermore, Voi expands their offering to a new city every week. We love working in an agile fashion, but in order to support their growth we had to work as rapidly and responsively as they do.
We were tasked with localising campaigns for future city launches at lightning speed! This is to say, launch a city a day on the day of release. The competition is fierce, so once Voi had launched in a new city, we had to go big or go home – otherwise someone else would swoop in and take the market share.
The main goal for Twigeo was to minimise the time it takes from the decision to launch a new city, to being ready to launch with localised campaigns.
Our main challenge was that each city requires localised content, advertising, bidding strategy and translations – work that typically takes a week. The goal was to shorten that campaign launch cycle down to one day. We succeeded! But how?
How did we overcome it?
To solve this, we made the decision to set up launch plans for each relevant city in Europe. So, once Voi is ready to launch in a new city, we have already prepared the following:
– Ad bidding strategy, media spend and goals
– Localised creative material per channel
This agile process has not only increased our responsiveness, but has also helped us cut costs. Preparing multiple cities is not that much extra work, but preparing one city at a time is alot more time consuming.
We also support Voi’s geographical expansion is by providing Voi with insights, app store data and growth opportunities. We are proactive by keeping an eye open for what’s next and being ready to launch in future cities. It’s a win-win.
