Star Search 2019 – a huge hit with the audiences and brands

Back after a nine-year hiatus, Star Search was a resounding success. The seven-month journey that began in May with open auditions to search for the next wave of superstars was a hit with both audiences and brands alike. The talent show captivated a total of 1.58 million P4+ viewers and recorded over 1.9 million Video Views on Toggle, with the Grand Finals attracting 972,000 viewers.

The competition captured many hearts and minds with impeccable results on social media – the nationwide transmedia campaign achieved 28.4 million social media reach, 9.4% engagement rate and 4.1 million readers for Instagram stories takeover.

Star Search provided a perfect platform for brands to grow their brand affinity and reach out to their target audience who actively tuned in to watch the exciting journey of uncovering budding talents. The strong results and positive reviews reinforced the success of such partnerships, underscoring the importance of initiating conversations around marketing possibilities early. Here are what some of the partner brands have to say: -
