Hoya and General Óptica magnify their message via Spotify audio and video ads

When the time came to develop a campaign for MiYOSMART, an innovative solution for children's myopia, HOYA Corporation and retail chain General Óptica had a vision. By enlisting the help of Madrid-based marketing agency Marketinhouse, the companies made a joint effort to reach parents who prioritize their children's health and eyesight.

Media mix:

Brand vertical: Agency/Retail
Objective: Brand Awareness
Target audience: Parents Ages 35-54
Targeting used: Interest, Age, Broad Targeting
Market: Spain
Flight dates: 10/24/22–12/08/22
Format(s): Audio, Video

The Brief:

HOYA, General Óptica, and Marketinhouse wanted to make parents aware of a new product offering—specialized MiYOSMART lenses, which not only correct myopia but also help minimize the condition's progression. The brands hoped to gain a high level of visibility among target customers and engage listeners with compelling and memorable ad creative.

The small business advertising campaign needed to speak directly to parents of school-age children. The hope was that parents would visit the campaign website to find the nearest General Óptica location, visit the retail store, and pick up HOYA's MiYOSMART lenses for their child.

The Solution:

The campaign was a prime example of how SMBs can work with agencies to leverage Spotify's exciting audio and video advertising options. Marketinhouse didn't want to settle for a nearsighted approach—so they leveraged Spotify Ad Studio to clearly stand out from the competition.

The agency created two different groups of ads with the same targeting features in order to take advantage of both audio and video. They segmented their audiences to target listeners based on interests like parenting, health and lifestyle, science and medicine, cooking, teaching, books, podcasts, culture and society, and more. They also targeted listeners' musical tastes, which include Latin music, a popular choice among parents in Spain.

Timing was a key part of the campaign's success: The ads overlapped with the back-to-school season, which is when many parents routinely have their children's vision checked.
