9. Saturday Night Frenzy
When you think about Saturday night, you will think about people hanging out to crowded place to have fun after all of their hard work on Monday to Friday. Saturday night is like melting pot for people from other region to have a good time and have fun.
Due to the factor of Saturday night, many people come to Braga Citywalk and suddenly make Pakoban visitors rose drastically. We take advantage of the momentum of this Saturday night moment to attract many visitors in Pakoban to come to the Ghost Parade booth.
We mobilized The Lelembut’s to increasingly “haunt” the visitors and continue to spread our charm among Braga Citywalk visitors. It turns out that our successfully attract a bunch of Braga Citywalk visitors to pause and take a look at the Ghost Parade booth. As a result, several merchandise Ghost Parade sold to the hands of visitors Pakoban and Braga Citywalk. This makes The Lelembut’s and Lentera Nusantara team feel re-energized and charged up even though the night made our team low in spirit and energy especially The Lelembut’s and Lentera Nusantara team. But, we managed to conquer the saturday night frenzy and we glad many people happy to see Ghost Parade booth.
10. Many kids like our comic
We want to make Ghost Parade content can be accessible to many people around the world with wide variety of age. That’s why we want to attract kids first because if the kids like our story their parents also liked it too. We make our Ghost Parade comic carefully, so the kids can read it and there’s no age restriction when you read our comic. The joke is very universal and understandable to many people especially if you stay for a long time in Indonesia.
The result is our comic can grab attention many kid visitors on Pakoban. As you know, kids have a focus that can sometimes be divided and very difficult to get focus and attention from kids. However, through the Ghost Parade comic we got kids’ attention and broke the myth that kids are hard to get attention and focus on one thing. The lightweight Ghost Parade comic contents, characters that have witty personalities, eye-catching images, stories that make kids smile to laugh, and full color comic makes kids keep looking at every sheet of the Ghost Parade comic.
It makes us more confident to bring Ghost Parade content to all ages.
11. That celebrity jacket
We still can’t believe that one of our merchandise wear by a famous celebrity in Indonesia. Our Jeng Kunti hoodie is wear by a famous celebrity whose name Uya Kuya on his television show called “Rumah Uya Investigasi”. He wears it in multiple segments, so our product was exposed to many people in the front of television audience across Indonesia.
So, we promote our Jeng Kunti hoodie in Pakoban even we didn’t sell it on Pakoban. When people see the similarity between Uya Kuya hoodie and the one that Lentera Nusantara team wear at Pakoban, people stop by and ask about the hoodie. Many people curious about that hoodie and ask us where’s the item. We said that you can pre-order that hoodie by contacting us on our social media such as Facebook and Instagram. We want to say thank you for Uya Kuya wife who bought many Ghost Parade merchandise when we participate on Popcon Asia 2017.
