WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

MSME Advertising Grant is a project that Mix Mediaworx Sdn Bhd has set up to offer advertising assistance to micro, small and medium enterprises that have been impacted by COVID-19 pandemic.

Mix Mediaworx Sdn Bhd is a full-service creative agency that has a passion for turning ideas into action and a focus on elevating your businesses to the next level.

The Awardees of the MSME Advertising Grant shall receive one (01) advertisement slot on Mixel Nationwide digital advertising platform for a minimum period of two (02) months up to a maximum of six (06) months (‘Funding Period’). The Funding Period may vary from each Awardee depending on the proposal submitted and shall be determined after the Awardees have been shortlisted.

Mixel Nationwide consists of a network of digital standing screens displaying advertisements at 23 prime locations across the nation that helps business owners broaden their reach and get the maximum exposure they crave for their businesses. Businesses can also reduce the cost to reprint their advertisements since the advertisements will be digital.

The advertisement slot is set at maximum 30 seconds long.

The Awardees of the MSME Advertising Grant are responsible to provide their own advertisement content as an artwork (i.e. static) in JPG or PDF format, or as a commercial (i.e. video) in MP4 format so long as the content is not more than 30 seconds long.

Our Mixel Nationwide team adheres to the following schedule weekly:

  • Monday-Tuesday (‘Receiving Period’): Days to receive the advertisement content
  • Wednesday-Friday (‘Upload Period’): Days to upload content onto Mixel Nationwide

Awardees therefore can change their advertisement content every week during the Funding Period as long as they submit their content on Monday or Tuesday of that week. Any content received after the Receiving Period will be updated in the Upload Period of the following week.

The Awardees can only advertise content relevant to the reasons or objectives submitted in their digital form. If the Awardees need to change the reasons or objectives of using the MSME Advertising Grant, they would need to inform Mix Mediaworx Sdn Bhd at least five (05) working days from the Award Date.
