InfoJobs wanted a much more inclusive audience in Spain. Moreover, the platform aimed to increase brand awareness and translate this awareness into specific actions, including app downloads and registrations, as quickly and efficiently as possible.


InfoJobs designed a “full-funnel” campaign that combined brand awareness and direct response advertising in a series of waves.

  • First, InfoJobs used Facebook’s reach and frequency buying at the start of the campaign to broaden its audience and reach across demographics.
  • InfoJobs created a series of video, carousel and photo ads as they sought to reach those audiences in all possible ways. InfoJobs’ ads followed best practices for video. As the videos clearly mentioned the brand frequently and early, had a specific message, and emphasized the call to action and the value proposition. The ads took people on a journey that increased metrics across awareness, preference over competitors and intent to use.
  • Finally, InfoJobs followed up on this increased awareness with mobile app install ads to encourage concrete action: app downloads and registrations. The campaign also used automatic placements on Facebook and Instagram to generate optimum results at the lowest average cost.
