Qiiwi Games today announce the start of marketing for the new game MasterChef: Cook & Match on social channels. Banijay Brands, the commercial arm of international content producer and distributor Banijay, and Qiiwi have partnered for the new mobile game, based on the global hit show MasterChef. With over 60 adaptations airing in 250 + different territories, Qiiwi will hope to tap into the global MasterChef audience to increase the player base of the game.
Originally created by Franc Roddam, MasterChef is the Most Successful Cookery Television Format (Guinness World Records). With more than 10,000 episodes and 500 series worldwide, the show consistently attracts phenomenal audiences globally.
Marketing on social media channels
The objective of the marketing is to create awareness of the game among people who already have a proven interest in the TV show MasterChef, which in turn should lead to more people downloading the game. The type of player base that can be reached through this type of marketing is also considered very valuable.
The goal going forward is to continuously implement posts on these social media channels, which include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok.
MasterChef is the worldwide smash hit format that sets out on a nationwide quest to find the best amateur cook in the country. Through tough individual and team challenges, the amateur cooks are judged by some of the country’s top chefs and distinguished food critics. It’s a life-changing journey for many, but only one will be crowned the nation’s MasterChef.
With more than 90 licensees around the world, the MasterChef brand extends into huge range of commercial activities across consumer products, experiential, publishing, and digital.
Erik Dale Rundberg, CEO at Qiiwi Games comments:
“MasterChef is a global success with followers and fans all over the world. An important part of our marketing strategy to increase the player base for the game MasterChef: Cook & Match, is to reach out to fans of the show on these social media channels that are judged to be a “Perfect Fit” for the game. In our game, they get the opportunity to experience virtually what it is like in the competition, fighting to become a MasterChef champion.
We will now, together with Banijay Brands, work to promote the game to as many followers as possible.”
