Octa x Narrators – Driving growth through an always-on influencer marketing strategy.

Influencer Marketing Case Study - Octa


Octa, a leading trading broker with over 40 million active accounts globally and more than a decade of market experience, is seeking to expand its user base and enhance its presence in the Southeast Asia region. Despite a solid position in the forex trading industry, the brand is aiming to reach a wider audience to boost app downloads and registrations.

Strategy and execution

Octa is leveraging social media influencer marketing to optimize performance and establish a sense of loyalty and trust. Collaborating with the Narrators platform and agency since 2022, the brand has engaged more than 100 influencers across Singapore and Malaysia, launching numerous campaigns on Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.

Long-term influencer activations

Recognising the importance of a creator’s voice and authenticity, Octa and Narrators committed to long-term influencer relationships with an always-on campaign strategy. Targeting influencers with niches in finance, investment, and lifestyle, the collaboration focused on creating engaging video content to capture and sustain audience attention. Building these enduring connections brings significant value to Octa as these influencers evolve into authentic advocates for the brand.

Narrators' platform management

The Narrators platform streamlines the entire campaign process, from influencer discovery and recruitment to execution and measurement. Octa uses the platform to publish briefs, engage influencers based on relevant interests and audiences, leverage the expertise of dedicated local account and community managers. Throughout the campaign, these managers continually monitor performance and offer recommendations to enhance the brand’s long-term investment strategy.

Creative guidelines

To ensure the success and cohesion of influencer-generated content, Octa has established strong creative guidelines for influencers. These guidelines emphasise the importance of authentic representation, aligning with the brand’s values, and creating content that resonates with the target audience. Influencers are encouraged to showcase the user-friendly features of the Octa trading app, highlight successful trading stories, and provide genuine testimonials about the platform’s reliability.

For more impact and resonance within their community, selected influencers are consistently tasked with creating one IG Reel, along with three Instagram Stories and one link in bio for a specific time duration. This approach aims to maximise engagement and provide a holistic view of the Octa trading experience, fostering a deeper connection with the audience.
