Connect Ads signed a partnership agreement with Jodel for sole media representation in Saudi Arabia.

Following months of preparations and negotiations, Jodel and Connect Ads closed the deal and announced their partnership this January 2020.

Jodel is a hyperlocal social network which instantly connects you with the people around you. It's a live social feed of your community's hottest news, questions, events, stories, and jokes.

Jodel, a Berlin-based social media platform, has made its foray into the GCC region already growing to 3.5 million users in Saudi Arabia.

Jodel was created out of its successor tellM, which aimed at allowing an anonymous communication among friends, in 2014 in California.

“We are very excited about this new opportunity, our exclusive partnership with Jodel is a strong milestone for Connect Ads, as we represent a fast-growing social media platform. I am confident that our cooperation will yield positive results for both companies as we avail great offerings for brands to engage” said Mohamed El-Mehairy, CEO of Connect Ads.

“Throughout the last years Saudi Arabia grew organically to our biggest market in terms of yearly active users. After successfully establishing Jodel as an advertising platform for national and regional brands in the German speaking region as well as in Scandinavia, we decided to take the next step in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, we were looking for a highly professional and experienced partner who can help us to leverage our full commercial potential in the region and found Connect Ads. We are looking forward to offering brands an innovative new option to reach their target audience in Saudi Arabia” said Alessio Avellan Borgmeyer, Jodel Founder and CEO.
