Connect with potential students


By using YouTube Music Lineups and Reach Mix Beta we aimed to generate awareness of the brand to future UOC students and position it with an audience related to educational entities.

YouTube Lineups are a diverse mix of content packages from YouTube Select that are tailored to globally and locally relevant needs like beauty & fashion, entertainment, technology, sports, etc. For Paid Media campaigns, Lineups turn out to be an efficient extension of the reach of your campaigns among up and coming or niche channels, with the added benefit of brand suitability controls.

Some YouTube facts about Lineups:

  • YouTube Select lineups drove an average awareness lift of 13% in 2019

  • YouTube Select lineups drove an average purchase intent lift of 9% in 2019

Successful format, placement & target


As part of their branding strategy, UOC and our Paid Media Management Team decided to launch a campaign on YouTube to reach their target audience in Spain. For this purpose, YouTube In-Stream and Bumper Ads formats were used across in the most Popular Content Lineups among the younger audience (Top Charts Spain) directly impacting the segment of the population with the greatest potential future students.

In addition, UOC utilized a native presence on YouTube which made it possible to impact users in a less intrusive way.

The launch of the YouTube Music campaign has meant that the UOC has been able to reach 3 million views, an average viewing time of 14.46’ for the ads, a view rate of 47.91% and a view rate of the complete video of 64,50% (VCR to 100%).



Lineups campaigns have boosted our brand strategy, improving KPI's, reaching the planned goals faster and helping us to impact our target in the best way possible.
