Mediacorp launches Bloomr.SG network to tie up with local content creators

Mediacorp has launched a new creator’s network, titled Bloomr.SG, in a bid to help local content creators in delivering more content. This comes as the company looks to embark on a new initiative to “nurture and empower” independent creators.

“These creators are digital natives who connect with their communities around interesting ideas, consumer and cultural trends, causes and movements,” the press statement read. The statement added that the move came about as brands are now increasingly turning to these creators to partake in the conversations generated. Brands are also looking to tap on a creator’s influence to connect with their target audiences.

Parminder Singh (pictured), chief commercial and digital officer, Mediacorp, explained that Mediacorp’s advertising partnerships will provide the creators monetisation strength.

“This is to free the creators up to do what they do best – which is being creative. At the same time brands will also be able to benefit from their contemporary and innovative approach to storytelling for compelling brand narratives,” Singh said.
