During the Covid-19 pandemic, Arab mothers found themselves juggling more responsibilities and taking on more roles within their households (homeschooling, and keeping kids entertained). With less time on their hands, moms actively sought out fun and easy recipes which the whole family could enjoy.

The solution was for Puck to own the breakfast space and provide readers with quick, and healthy recipes, which resulted in greater relevance and made the campaign resonate with their target audience.

Puck partnered with Mawdoo3 (The Largest Arabic online encyclopedia) and Nawa3em (An online platform dedicated to the Arab woman’s passion and interests) to help mothers overcome their daily challenges and provide a helping hand.

DMS created a series of tailored native articles that focused on innovative breakfast recipes utilizing Puck, along with practical tips for mothers on how to prepare quick and easy breakfast recipes without losing their personal touch.

Puck understood the benefits of using a brand-safe publisher-led approach, which gave them a trusted editorial voice, content diversity and the ability to target contextually, which resulted in greater relevancy and made the campaign resonate with their target audience.

Puck, a brand that strives on being mom’s ally, took a proactive approach by providing her with a bouquet of convenient meal recipes, motivational and educational resources for her and her family.
