Milli Piyango is the online home of Turkey’s national lottery. In addition to the main lottery, Milli Piyango offers visitors numerous ways to try their luck at winning cash prizes while supporting Turkish educational, environmental, and cultural initiatives. Although the concept of the lottery has remained essentially the same since its advent in 1939, its ability to reach a broad and enthusiastic audience has increased as technologies have advanced. An early adopter of online presence, Millipiyangoonline.com debuted in 1993, but as user expectations continued to evolve, it was time for Milli Piyango to level up their website to increase engagement and revenue. Fortunately, they turned to Storyly to add a story layer and empower new possibilities for communication and engagement.
Low engagement is a common challenge faced by highly focused web brands with a small catalog of well-known offerings. Despite having a broad and invested audience, Millipiyangoonline.com had a high bounce rate which depressed conversion rates and revenue. Milli Piyango needed a way to immediately engage new visitors to the site and help them purchase tickets and game entries.
Milli Piyango needed to communicate with their audience in a way that was engaging and immediate to let visitors know about new games and drawings. The marketing team felt limited by the constraints of a traditional website format in terms of creating a sense of immediacy for visitors and meeting audience expectations.
Video content has a higher engagement rate than static image or text based media, but it was important to Milli Piyango that the addition of video not slow down page loading speed. The Milli Piyango marketing team needed a way to pursue their goal of raising engagement rates without compromising on their user experience.
And then came Storyly.
