Mangalesri ChandrasekaranAugust 17, 2016


Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB), one of Malaysia’s leading property developers, has entered into a partnership with PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading property portal, to develop an exclusive digital campaign for the marketing and promotion of MRCB’s Sentral Suites, which is slated for launch in September 2016.

As per the deal, PropertyGuru will be developing a customised digital marketing and branding plan specifically for Sentral Suites, Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD worth RM4 million – the biggest digital investment reported by any property development company in Malaysia thus far.

The investment by MRCB also marks its biggest digital marketing and branding spend to date, and is in tandem with its strategy to better target home buyers, who largely use digital mediums for property search and research. This was validated by a PropertyGuru and Google survey which found that 90% of property buyers had moved online for their property search and research needs.




Sharing his optimism on this ground-breaking digital campaign, MRCB’s Group Managing Director, YBhg Tan Sri Mohamad Salim Fateh Din said, “Leveraging on a digital online campaign is a step in the right direction for MRCB, as we want to adopt a more interactive and engaging approach in capturing our target audience”.

“We are confident PropertyGuru’s established regional presence and its extensive marketing platform comprising portals, publications, events, awards, project marketing solutions and more will not only enable us to reach a more relevant demographic, but  also at a lower cost per reach,” he said.

“It is also an efficient and focused way of engaging with our target customers, who actively utilise digital platforms and will find Sentral Suites, Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD a very appealing residential development well suited to their active lifestyles,” added YBhg Tan Sri Mohamad Salim.




Mr Sheldon Fernandez, Country Manager of PropertyGuru Malaysia said “PropertyGuru is extremely honoured to be named an exclusive partner of MRCB, and it is exciting times for us here at PropertyGuru, as we are heading this digital revolution to market Sentral Suites, Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD. MRCB is the right partner to work with as it is renowned for setting new milestones, and as an industry innovator. What sets this apart from other partnerships we have had previously, is that MRCB is entrusting PropertyGuru to spearhead the whole digital marketing campaign”.

“That simply means PropertyGuru is accountable for all strategic decisions and to work closely with their marketing team to reach the targets necessary, yet within a pay for performance marketing model,” he said.
