The Cheer Story
Want to build a meaningful story around your brand?
Short for ‘Social Cheers’, SoCheers was born with the desire to celebrate brand stories, achievements, and people. We started back in 2013 as an end-to-end Digital Marketing Agency, infusing creativity into ever-evolving advertising technology to enable end consumers to interact with brands better. From setting up the business, to the office admin, to hiring, our Directors have nurtured the spirit of SoCheers since its inception at every step of our journey.
Today, SoCheers provides digital marketing services to brands that doesn't just include digital presence but immersive experiences too. From heart touching DVCs to catchy jingles, interactive microsites to engaging content, whatever your brand goals, we breathe life into them and Make it Happen!
Our family comprises moody artists, creative souls, the intellectual wizards, the bossy bosses and happy-go-luckies - all of whom are dedicated towards the common goals of Creativity, Efficiency & Fun.
