Uber Eats is a leading food delivery service platform operating worldwide. The Uber Eats app connects users with a broad range of local restaurants, allowing users to order from the full menus of their local favorites whenever they want.

GOAL

How to Successfully Adopt a New Creative Direction

With the COVID-19 pandemic changing the consumer behavior, the Uber Eats marketing team needed help adapting their messaging to rapidly react to the situation.

Uber Eats launched two responses to the pandemic:

  • $0 Delivery Fee to support local restaurants
  • “Leave at door” - New no-contact delivery option

To drive the message that Uber Eats is here to help support the community, the company adopted a sincere and straightforward tone-of-voice and highlighted their pandemic responses. They needed to launch new creatives with localized copy for multiple markets, while showcasing the variety of restaurants that continued serving customers through Uber Eats.

SOLUTION

New Global Creative Direction in Response to the Pandemic

Uber Eats partnered with Smartly.io's Creative Studio who designed a new video concept and helped to scale it across markets and languages.

The Smartly.io Creative Studio team helped Uber Eats to:

  • Create multiple variations of their “Leave at Door” and “$0 Delivery Fee” videos, with different end frames showcasing a variety of cuisine options to catch the user’s eye.
  • Created assets in both 9:16 and 1:1 formats for both Stories and Collection placements on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.

The Uber Eats team then used Smartly.io’s Video Templates tool to automatically create hundreds of videos with localized copy and changing food options.

Smartly.io seamlessly stepped in to support our in-house creative teams to produce top-quality assets on a very accelerated, aggressive timeline.
