Uber Gets Local

Every marketer knows, the more aligned your content is with your target market, the better.

This is easy when the company is a single gym with a 10km target area that specialises in sports injury rehab. Those ads write themselves.

When you’re a global company with 2 million drivers providing 15 million rides per day (best estimates by ridestar), aligning advertising content to individual locations becomes a little more … well… impressive.

Especially when that city is ye olde Perth.

Uber managed to do just that with their “Tonight, I’ll Be Eating” campaign from earlier this year.

Here’s a few to give you the gist;

1. Nic Natanui

2. Naomi Watts

3. Sophie Monk

There’s a different version of the same ad (same star, different city and restaurant mentioned) for Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane as well a non-location specific version. You can see all seperate city focused versions here.

Up there for thinking

I like these ads. Simple, clear, quick and humourous.

I especially like that they took the time to do a different version of each ad for each main city.

I know that tweaking one sentence of dialogue in a 15 second ad isn’t that impressive, but consider the last time you saw an ad for a multinational behemoth specifically for Perth… I’ll wait.

Star Power + tongue twister food order from local restaurant = tasty ads.

Nice work work Uber. I need to order some lunch.

Ordinarily one way taxi rides giving very good quality accommodation to the clients, which evades wretchedness about leaving their own vehicle in open regions. Taxi administration gives adaptable chance to head out starting with one spot then onto the next, though open transportation not match. Employing a taxi administration disposes of the concern on going to the night party and permits to acquire taxis while around evening time clubs.
