The challenge

Guinness wanted to create an innovative social media campaign that would bring people together at local Guinness venues to watch the Rugby Internationals. The goal was to raise awareness of local Guinness vendors and increase the number of people going to the pub to watch the match over a pint.

The solution

The strategy was to create a unique Facebook video ad for every Guinness venue in the UK and Ireland – to be shown to targeted audiences within their area, and updated dynamically based on which rugby matches were being shown.

Building directly within Spirable’s self-serve platform, Guinness’ ATL agency created a master template using existing campaign assets, to which the full list of Guinness vendor locations were added as well as match information. The generated, personalised videos were then delivered to geo-targeted audiences on Facebook.
