We at QLASH always strive to partner with forward thinking companies that have similar views to ours, with innovation and community focus being a core philosophy. As such, we are happy to announce that we have launched globally a marketing campaign together with Viber, one of the most widely used messaging apps with more than a billion registered users worldwide.
The global launch enables 3 key Viber products to be used around the globe - an automated QLASH chatbot, communities for unlimited number of fellow gamers and a gaming-themed Sticker Pack, featuring Qlashy the mascot.
“We see the partnership with Viber as a great opportunity to showcase our activities to the ever growing Esports audience and keep on building bridges connecting the grassroot players.’ Said Luca Pagano, CEO and co-owner of QLASH. ‘Their innovative platform allows for a tailored and engaging experience which we consistently strive for and are looking to further expand our presence and capabilities together with Viber.”
“The millions of eSports fans around the world are already using their smartphones to keep up with their favorite teams, but they also need a platform to instantly connect them with like-minded fans аt the same time,” said Sally Burtt-Jones, Senior Director, Business Development. “Viber’s partnership with QLASH enables fans to collect relevant information about events & tournaments in a click’s time, as well as interact with fellow fans with similar interests and event admins directly in a fun & engaging way.”
The QLASH chatbot provides relevant information to its subscribers by utilizing game specific news sections and highlighting the events and activities QLASH is organizing. The chatbot also allows users to connect with like-minded people through special Community Chats dedicated to their favorite games. These Community Chats will be managed directly by QLASH staff and will become a portal where casual gamers can meet and interact between each other or participate in the overall discussion. Users are automatically subscribed to the chatbot once they download the sticker pack and can be accessed here.
The Qlashy Sticker Pack is free to download here and includes a variety of gaming-inspired emotions that the user can share in their everyday conversations on Viber. Clicking on the sticker pack will automatically lead the users to the chatbot, where they can later subscribe to receive updates and to access the rest of its features.
