Trading Platform TMGM Launching Video Commercial Series: You’ve Never Seen Anything Like It
Sydney, 17 December 2021 – Humour continues to be a powerful marketing tool for fast-growing Online Trading Platform, TMGM. The global CFD Broker is launching an integrated marketing campaign that challenges the conventions of financial marketing: as the company releases a series of humorous video ads featuring a new brand mascot.
The new ‘Tim & Max The Globe: The Ultimate Trading Bromance’ video campaign paints the story of a humorous relationship between Tim (a 38 year old male) and Max, his unexpected flatmate: a giant anthropomorphic globe.
This giant anthropomorphic globe, is TMGM’s new brand mascot ‘Max The Globe’. “As we discussed angles for our brand campaign, the idea of a mascot arose early on,” Chief Marketing Officer, Angelo D’Alessio commented. “In such a serious industry, we’re fans of using humour to stand out – a strategy that’s working for us so far. In 2020, TMGM rebranded with the tagline ‘Trade The World’. The concept of ‘Max The Globe’ supports the new branding and is an extension of the brand tagline.”
The new video series showcases unexpectedly humorous moments of the “flatmate” relationship between this unlikely pair in short ad spots.
Andrea Faleburle, Head Of Global Marketing, explains the concept, “The premise is that Max is so good at trading, everyone expects him to be good at everything else too. The irony becomes clear as soon as you watch the videos: his large round body and size make him clumsy and bumbling in an awkward and endearing way. I can’t say much else just yet, you’ll have to see it yourself.”
The integrated marketing campaign will unfold across digital, social, and print for maximum visibility. With plans to integrate user generated content, social media followers and TMGM clients will get the chance to submit ideas for the video series. The winner’s ‘vision’ will come to life in following TMGM videos.
“If you’ve ever seen ‘E.T’ the movie, then you’ll immediately resonate with ‘Max The Globe’,” explains Head of Sponsorship, Jasmyna Mercer. “Much like the major film that navigates the life of an extra-terrestrial creature on earth, we’ve explored the idea of a world where it’s normal for a giant anthropomorphic globe to exist.” Mercer continues, “The series is a lot of fun. Fans may also appreciate the comedic style of the videos, with the interview shots resembling an iconic TV series, ‘The Office.’”
You can expect to see ‘Max The Globe’ in more places than one. Namely, at live event activations during the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 Fan Village in Singapore and AO22 Melbourne Park in Australia.
CEO Lee Yu is optimistic to execute the next stage of the company’s global expansion strategy, commenting, “TMGM has been fast growing, especially in the last year. The company is now averaging more than $200 Billion of volume traded per month and our client base has increased steadily. This creative campaign is an important part of our international strategy across multiple markets to engage online traders around the globe.”
TMGM will be building upon the adventures and misadventures of ‘Max The Globe’ in 2022. See the Tim & Max video series at TMGM.COM/MAX
