Generally, the MFS category is perceived as a problem solver with high functional connect; it is majorly seen as a money sending service provider.

Also, bKash is perceptually a problem-solving brand - a ‘friend in need’ and USSD as a platform is seen as less convenient and perceptually lacks modernity and innovation.

Hence, the introduction of bKash customer app – with the vision of making bKash future-proof.

The communication task was to Create strong emotional connect with meaningful difference for bKash and Position bKash as a smart and convenient solution provider that makes life simple.

Create content and land the brand message to our digital audience through contextual, bite sized and innovative contents
