Thanks to this branded content ad campaign, we were able to show customers a new type of ad and drive performance. Though the education industry does not have as many relevant influencers as the beauty and fashion industries, we discovered that it is possible to find influencers who can drive performance.

THE SOLUTION
Reaching a broader audience with branded content ads

Yanadoo partnered with four influencers for its branded content ad campaign, which featured the message “Only 10 minutes a day.” The company hoped to reach the influencers’ audiences, as well as people who wanted to learn English but felt they did not have enough time to study.

The campaign included the school’s usual mix of carousel ads and link ads, but also added branded content ads so that Yanadoo could compare their performance. The images showed the influencers studying English via Yanadoo’s online platform and each influencer wrote about the benefits of the school’s courses.

Yanadoo broadened its audience to include a wider age range than usual and also used interest targeting to reach even more people who were more likely to be interested in Yanadoo’s offerings. The campaign ran on Facebook, Instagram and Audience Network, using automatic placements and campaign budget optimization to make the most of its budget.
