GrabBike has registered the biggest increase in advertising awareness in Indonesia for the month of March 2023 of all the brands we track in the market. Data from YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumer perceptions toward brands on a daily basis worldwide, shows that Ad Awareness of the ride-hailing platform saw an uplift of 4.8 percentage points over the four-week period.

Grab Indonesia had released a series of promo codes that allowed users to enjoy up to 90% off their GrabBike rides in March. Separately, the platform also ran a “Grab Mas” campaign in East Java from 27 February to 20 March, which saw the distribution of some 30,000 golden tickets by selected Grab driver partners to Grab users. Customers who received a golden ticket stood a chance to win an iPhone 14.

According to data from YouGov BrandIndex, GrabBike’s Ad Awareness score rose from a low of 43.3 on 26 February to a high of 48.1 by 18 March. Ad Awareness is a BrandIndex metric that measures the percentage of people who have seen an advert from a particular brand in the previous two weeks.
