Shuttleone is a reputed finTech startup from Singapore. Team works with tens of traditional businesses in south-east Asia to introduce them to decentralized finance and other blockchain services. ShuttleOne wanted to raise funds publicly on Tezos blockchain however, there was no demand for their tokens. This leads them to Afleet as they realised ambassadors can be great for brand awareness initially.

ShuttleOne launched ambassador program and promoted the drive to specific market as per the suggestion. Within seven days the program received more than 500 entries from active crypto enthusiasts who wanted to work with ShuttleOne.

Ambassadors slowly penetrated new markets and within one month ShuttleOne social media channels saw whooping 500% growth. Same got reflected in anticipation of the product along the way. Within one month, ShuttleOne launched their token sale and raised more than $60,000 in a small niche market.



Recently we covered Creatorchain network case study where we mentioned how project used Afleet to reward their own community. However, the case with ShuttleOne was different. ShuttleOne was entering in a new market and the goal was to create initial demand. 

Because of this reason, recruitment of ambassadors came from the industry enthusiasts instead of project community itself.

You can use ambassador program to penetrate new markets

You can invite industry influencers and enthusiasts to become your brand ambassador and beta testers. 

This is a great way to create initial demand for your products.
