MultiChoice teamed up with Udemy to empower customers across Africa with skills advancement and development opportunities. 

This represented a new partnership opportunity whereby both DStv and Udemy would benefit from communicating their respective interest and investment towards education, while driving awareness of the association between the two brands. 

We had to find a way to communicate that this fitting collaboration will serve customers with a passion for learning. We also understood that this was an exploratory exercise, where no established benchmarks existed yet.

Our challenge was threefold: 

  • To drive an increase in DStv and GOtv Awareness
  • To drive website traffic
  • To drive Udemy course sign-ups 


Considering a vast African footprint, digital proved the best medium for communication, and messaging was delivered across Search, Facebook & Instagram, YouTube and Programmatic platforms.

The campaign aimed at generating high reach while driving clicks through to the brand-owned landing page. 

Messaging was simple, highlighting the mobile learning opportunities and driving excitement for the new partnership between Udemy and MultiChoice. It encouraged consumers to read more about the initiative at the provided link.


The campaign provided the ideal benchmarking opportunity for observing general appetite for this kind of content across the target audience.
