Eckes-granini is a German fruit-juice maker who found success with Social Media video ads and saw sales increased by 14% amongst customers.
Throughout Germany and Europe Eckes-granini specialises in producing non-alcoholic fruit drinks to the masses. Its product portfolio includes international premium brands granini and Pago, as well as regional brands, such as hohes C in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary.
Eckes-granini wanted to raise awareness and drive sales of its wide range of fruit juices. Grabbing customers’ attention by introducing the granini Selection range, which features fruit juices such as mango, cranberry, pomegranate and passion fruit.
The team from granini worked with Facebook Creative Shop to reuse existing TV ads for mobile. Creating 6 separate ads each featuring a different flavour.
All six ads followed Facebook’s best practices for mobile, with a short, vertical video introducing the brand at the start. The ads were also designed to appeal whether viewers had the sound turned on or off.
The campaign used to reach and frequency buying tools to reach people in Germany between the ages of 18–49 at an optimal frequency. It also ran in parallel with a TV campaign, helping to establish an aligned cross-media plan. Results were measured by a Marketing Mix Evaluator (MME) study from GfK.
