Ksubaka is the next generation of retail media space, deploying interactive touch-screen displays we call ‘playSpots’ in high-traffic retail stores across Asia.

We offer brands a new way to attract, engage and convert shoppers to buyers at the most relevant time, when they are shopping and just a few feet from the products.

We leverage the language of games using ‘gamified brand experiences’ to engage and delight shoppers in 60-second experiences we call mojos (‘moments of joy’), communicating the reasons to believe in the brand and offering them an immediate incentive to purchase the product or follow the brand online. 

We remotely manage these playSpots using our proprietary software platform, allowing Ksubaka to provide advertisers with real-time monitoring of activity and the ability to optimize their campaign on the fly. Ksubaka is the first offline retail media with this capability and is currently projected to deliver 50 million mojos per month by the end of 2016. Existing customers include some of the leading global brands including P&G, Unilever, Coke, Nestle, Mondelez, Heineken, Colgate, Kellogg’s and more. 

Ksubaka was founded by Julian and Giles Corbett in Singapore in 2013 and currently has 25+ employees with offices in Singapore, Shanghai, London. Ksubaka is privately funded.

We are Paperplanes. We combine the latest digital marketing technology with one of the country’s largest industrial printers, to deliver programmatic direct mail. From laptop to doorstep in 48 hours. This is a ground breaking approach and a first for the UK. 

Programmatically informed print is the kind of direct mail that businesses want to send and customers want to receive.

Imagine a letter that you know your customer would want to read. Imagine if it could write and send itself, at the very moment you know your customer would want to read it. That’s programmatic triggered direct mail. And that’s what Paperplanes deliver.
