The team at 1080partners has decades of experience successfully launching new products into the markets of Latin America. For example, after reviewing the product lineup for Telltale Games, we outlined a launch plan and made suggestions to the Publisher on how to best grow their sales in the region. The total sales increase in the first year was calculated at 201%, most of which occurred as post-launch high-margin catalog sales. Sales in the most recent year show an increase of nearly 300%.
1080partners has relationships with a network of distributors in Miami and Latin America as well as direct contact with formal and informal retailers across the region.
1080partners has successfully launched and managed the lifecycles of some of the strongest brands in the video game business including, Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online, Rock Band, Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead and Minecraft Story Mode, among many others. Product launches play a major role in establishing your brand in new markets. When bringing a new gaming accessory brand to market in LATAM, 1080partners worked closely with Activision as well as retailers and distributors in Mexico and Brazil to successfully create a Call of Duty Limited Edition gaming accessory bundle as a part of the launch strategy. 1080partners has broad experience in the management of AAA content and strong brands which offers benefits across their portfolio of products.
1080partners recently worked closely with a gaming accessory company to establish their product in Latin American markets, ensuring that the product had demo kiosks and working samples at retailers in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Panama, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Peru and Paraguay during the launch window to maximize the potential of the product. Our strong partnerships with retailers across the region will ensure that your product has maximum exposure.
With 30 countries, 25 currencies, scores of taxing authorities and multiple approaches to establishing your brands in new markets, 1080partners can help create a strategic plan to ensure the most efficient approach based on your needs.
Compliance with local ratings laws is mandatory. 1080partners can help you get your product through the Ministry of Justice or with ANATEL in Brazil. We have rated many products and assisted distributors to obtain the necessary paperwork to ensure all local laws are followed appropriately.
Consumers prefer to consume in their own language! We have worked closely with management with our partners to help make a case for localizing game content and packaging- because consumers purchase more products in their own languages. We also have an extensive network of localization partners that can help your team translate packaging, product manuals, marketing materials and product content.
Accepting payments in local currency can significantly increase the monetization potential of your products in Latin America. 1080partners works with the strongest payment providers in the region to assist publishers and developers in the monetization of their content and repatriate their funds.
Whether you are a publisher or developer, plan to sell physical or digital goods, 1080partners can design a strategy for you to approach any market in the Americas.
