The digital advertising industry is in a constant evolution: new ad formats, audiences, placements, KPIs and more. With that in mind, we hope these examples will inspire your planning for your 2019 digital and social advertising strategy.

1. McDonald's- Increasing engagement through Weather Sync Ads

McDonald’s wanted to promote McFrozen, a new item on its menu to generate maximum engagement during the
summer months.

Adgow integrated weather sync technology with our DSP ADAM to deliver ads in alignment with real time local weather conditions in up to 50 cities.

The integration of ADAM and Weather Sync recognized which cities amongst the list of 50, were experiencing temperates between 20ºC - 25ºC (warm), 25ºC - 30ºC (hot), or in excess of 31ºC (very hot!) and delivered a different creative congruent with the conditions. And of course, if it was raining then none of the advertisement triggers were activated!

The ad below got +99.5k engagements during the campaign!


“We believe in message relevance and this solution provided by Adglow gave us the perfect tool to launch a product sensitive to the weather by delivering the right creative to the right audience and at the perfect time considering the variable of thermal sensation that was so important for the seasonality and the product attributes.” Guilherme Coe LATAM Marketing at McDonald's

As one of the world’s largest sporting events, the World Cup presents brands with an incredible opportunity to leverage social
media to captivate the attention of billions of football fans across the globe. Bimbo wanted to take advantage of the buzz with an
innovative paid social campaign targeted to audiences across Mexico on Facebook.

The results were very positive." Monica Contreras Digital Media at Bimbo

4. Pizza Hut - Increasing sales revenue by 21.5% with Store Visit Ads

Pizza Hut wanted to run social advertising campaigns to increase store visits and online sales in Brazil.

Adglow worked with Pizza Hut to develop and implement an advertising strategy focused on increasing online and in
store sales.

Adglow set up a geolocalized campaign to ensure ads were served to audiences located within a specific radius of
Pizza Hut branches across 5 Brazilian regions and 57 cities. The Facebook store visits ad format along with location
specific calls-to-actions, maps and text all played key roles in helping Pizza Hut reach their sales objectives.

Sales revenue grew by over 21% with a 30% lower CPA. 


“The geolocalized campaign allowed us to measure the impact of each campaign, to understand which customers saw our message, which sales channel they went to and which products they bought. All of this generated a 21.5% increase in sales at the franchisor's stores” Antonio Marchese, Marketing Director at Pizza Hut Brazil
