To raise awareness, Almarai (@almarai) joined the Earth Day conversation with a Promoted Video – made in partnership with National Geographic Abu Dhabi – that encouraged viewers to recycle.
Bank Al Jazira (@BankAlJazira) created a video that captured football fans’ attention, and entertained them while highlighting the bank’s connection to FIFA World Cup 2018 through Visa’s partnership. The accompanying Twitter Poll, asking people where they prefer to watch matches, offered an easy and appealing means of engagement.

@CadillacArabia & @layalina

Al Jazirah Ford (@AlJazirahFord), the world’s largest Ford dealer, used Moments to showcase the all-new Ford Expedition, creating an immersive experience for its audience.

In anticipation of Saudi women beginning to drive in June, Volkswagen Middle East (@VWMiddleEast) partnered with women’s magazine Sayidaty (@sayidatynet) to build brand preference. They co-produced weekly driving tip videos, which @sayidatynet Tweeted with Volkswagen branded pre-roll.
Vodafone Egypt (@VodafoneEgypt) used a Video Website Card to generate leads for its new Ready Digital service, which helps businesses connect with customers on social media. The autoplaying video in the Tweet led viewers through to a Vodafone web page where they could learn about and choose Ready Digital packages.
