The company will also focus on growing its SYOKcast network by working with local podcasters to create niche audio content.

Through these additional content pillars, they will be able to offer new advertising and sponsorship opportunities for their partners to engage with their audiences.

Recently, they ran a digital quiz for PEPSI’s Ramadhan balik kampung campaign on SYOK, which generated 23,000 entries in just 5 days.
