Engage users with personalised and unique content

 

Amorepacific also
aims to leverage Shopee’s market leadership and deep data insights into
consumer shopping trends and behaviour, to help pre-launch new exclusive
products that serve existing brand lovers and acquire new users. In addition,
Amorepacific will also explore introducing its brand ambassadors such as
popular Korean celebrities and artistes, into its Shopee campaigns,
strengthening its brand affinity and awareness with consumers across the
region.

 

Korean beauty and
skincare continues to attract a huge following in Asia and beyond[3]. In
Shopee’s annual mega campaigns from 9.9 to 12.12, Amorepacific brands such as
Laneige and innisfree consistently ranked in the top five of the beauty
category. This is driven by consumers’ preference toward skincare products made
with unique, natural ingredient formulas[4]
and personalised beauty solutions, as well as the global rise of Korean pop
culture, particularly throughout Southeast Asia.



[1] Regional Champion Brands Programme is an
exclusive, by-invite only program open to top brand partners, aimed to better
support brands in accelerating their growth on the regional and local levels.
We currently have 17 brands on board this programme.
