EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Since January 2019, EIT Urban Mobility has been working to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities to make them more liveable places.

EIT Urban Mobility were facing different challenges to build awareness of their free online courses. Passion were challenged to raise EIT’s profile by promoting related videos from their WebTV YouTube channel through YouTube Ads.

What we did

We responded to this challenge by launching 5 videos in October 2021. We worked closely with EIT to frequently refresh new, exciting content, ensuring audiences were not fatigued with similar ads.

We tested various ad formats, including In-Stream, targeting custom-built audiences (for example, people searching for similar courses/content on Google Search). Each video linked to a specific course, ensuring the content shown had a relevant landing page.

Once we gathered data, we were able to optimise performance by adjusting our bids on the best performing ad formats, audiences and videos which increased our view and click-through rates.
