The client.

Circles.Life is more than just Asia’s first fully digital telco. Since its launch in 2016, it remained focused on its mission to give power back to the consumer. Through game-changing digital products and no-contract, data-focused mobile plans, Circles.Life is revolutionizing the digital telco industry through a customer-centric user journey. Circles.Life was born from the ambition of three friends who discovered that, like them, many couldn’t find a telco company that offered services catering to their mobile needs. So they decided to come together to create a revolutionary digital telco experience, ranging from telco to data and ecosystem products. Over the last years, Circles.Life raised more than US$250m over different rounds and expanded into different markets across Southeast Asia.

The challenge.

As a fast-growing team, Circles.Life engaged admiral.digital as an outsourced marketing and product team to drive growth across different markets and product verticals. Services offered included branding and creative design, UX/UI, front-end development, analytics and tracking, business intelligence, product management and performance marketing management. The key objective of the overall embedded engagement strategy was to drive bottom line results in the form of new customers acquired and overall revenue.

The solution.

admiral.digital started with providing a non-biased external perspective on existing user journeys and digital activities, auditing the status quo and consulting on best practices. We co-developed the UX/UI of the Circles.Life marketing websites and led the conceptualization, development, AB-testing and optimization of different marketing products such as landing pages, an onboarding tool and savings calculator aimed at driving different KPIs (lead generation, sales etc.). Strategic UI/UX support and daily management of the marketing tech stack were also provided through a collaborative approach between both teams and stakeholders with one expert point of contact providing access to subject-matter experts when required. The admiral.digital performance marketing team managed all paid media budgets and accounts across markets for +24 months fully integrating with the circles.life marketing team.
