Challenge

Loved by Mexicans and Latin Americans alike, Bimbo Bakeries has a strong footprint in the U.S. among less acculturated Hispanics. The brand was looking to drive growth by connecting with Hispanic millennials, who are not as familiar with the brand. Bimbo wanted to maintain authenticity when communicating with existing consumers while also connecting with Hispanic millennials.

Solution

Facebook is used by over 26 million U.S. Hispanics, making it the perfect channel for Bimbo to build brand affinity with the digital audience. We leveraged Facebook’s Hispanic affinity targeting to reach Mexican-born Americans and Hispanic millennials with culturally relevant brand messaging and promotional communications. Using custom design, imagery and video production in concert with Facebook’s promoted post and video ad units, Bimbo was able to reach a broader audience with share-worthy content.
