  • The 12-week campaign was promoted on DiDi’s mobile app with a custom campaign page and a variety of banner ads, DiDi’s official WeChat accounts and on Alipay’s social channels—China’s widely-used third-party online paymentplatform.


This awareness-building campaign garnered nearly 1,300 unique driving itineraries and more than 35,000 itinerary votes. Overall, the campaign generated 16 million impressions on DiDi’s mobile app with a 0.5% click-through rate and 215.3 million impressions across social.
