Overview of the Jodel Community App

Jodel is an innovative social community app that connects users through real-time, location-based conversations, allowing them to share news, ask questions, and interact with nearby community members anonymously.

This unique platform encourages spontaneous and genuine interactions, making it a vital tool for fostering local community engagement across various regions.

The Challenge

Initially, Jodel faced the challenge of scaling its presence effectively across key European markets, including Germany, France, and Sweden. The primary goals were to enhance app user retention rates and achieve a targeted CPI of between €1.79 and €2.24, within the constraints of an initial budget of €8.3K.

The strategic objective was to expand market reach while ensuring the sustainability and efficiency of user acquisition costs. Knowing the limitations of our budget and the unique niche, we had our work cut out for us, but we have a solution for all problems.

House of Marketers’ Solution

The solution for Jodel’s influencer marketing campaign on TikTok was meticulously crafted and executed across 3 months. Seeing exceptional results, the budget scaled to over €196K to maximise impact.

Here’s what we did in a nutshell:

  • Selected Advertising Channel: Chose TikTok as the primary platform due to its popularity among the target demographic of young adults in Europe, and untapped potential for the industry.
  • Meticulous Influencer Selection: Identified and engaged over 60 perfectly-matched TikTok micro-influencers across key markets like Germany, France, and Sweden. These influencers were aligned with Jodel’s community-focused brand values.
  • Utilisation of Spark Ads: Employed TikTok Spark Ads to amplify the campaign’s reach and effectiveness, integrating influencer content with Jodel’s promotional goals while maintaining content authenticity.
  • Content Strategy: Developed a tailored content strategy that involved influencers creating engaging, shareable content which highlighted how Jodel enhances community interaction and social engagement.

Now, let’s dive deeper into each strategic element:

Our first step in crafting an effective campaign for Jodel involved understanding the dynamics of the TikTok platform and identifying how it resonates with Jodel’s target demographic, primarily young adults across Europe. Recognising the potential of TikTok’s format, we focused on creating engaging, shareable content that fits naturally within users’ daily feeds.

Finding the Right Influencer Fit

Selecting the right influencers was crucial. We chose over 60 micro-influencers across Germany, France, and Sweden who not only had significant followings relevant to our target audience but whose ethos aligned closely with Jodel’s community-focused brand.

These influencers were selected for their genuine engagement with their followers, ensuring that any promotions felt authentic and trustworthy.

Tailored Content and Engagement

The content strategy was meticulously planned to resonate deeply with the typical Jodel user. Influencers used their unique styles to create personalised content that highlighted how Jodel enhances their daily social interactions and community involvement.

This approach allowed us to blend promotional messages seamlessly into content that viewers found relatable and engaging.

Utilising Spark Ads for Amplified Reach

To maximise the reach and effectiveness of our influencer content, we utilised TikTok’s Spark Ads, which allowed us to boost influencer posts directly.

This strategy not only maintained the authenticity of the original posts but also enhanced visibility, driving higher engagement and conversion rates.

Storytelling with Real Impact

Storytelling was at the core of our influencer strategy. Each influencer shared their personal experiences with Jodel, focusing on real-life scenarios where the app provided a platform for local discourse and community bonding.

These stories were not just promotional but illustrated the practical value of Jodel in fostering community engagement.

Strategic Execution

The success of the campaign was not solely attributed to the influencers’ content but also to the strategic use of performance marketing techniques. By fully managing the influencer and performance marketing ads, the team ensured that each ad was optimised for maximum engagement and conversion.

This strategic investment yielded substantial returns, driving 85,644 app installs.

Moreover, the campaign also potentially improved app user retention rates, a key objective for Jodel. While specific retention metrics are under review, preliminary data suggests a positive trend in user engagement and sustained app usage post-install.


The success of Jodel’s TikTok influencer campaign underscores a pivotal shift in digital marketing dynamics, proving that the right blend of creativity and technology can break through the noise of today’s digital landscape.
