Ocean Finds High Quality Leads that Convert for Menora with Taboola Sponsored Content
In order to promote a Menora product related to pension insurance, Ocean worked with Taboola to launch a sponsored content campaign.
Working with Taboola allowed Menora to reach high-intent audiences outside of search and social platforms; on premium sites on the open web. Their sponsored content campaign appeared in the Taboola Feed across popular websites in Israel for users that were most likely to be interested in their campaign.
With Taboola, Ocean was able to achieve a 5% lower CPC, and 25% lower CPA than the targets for the campaign.
Not only did Menora find they could drive leads at scale through the Taboola platform, but those leads were high-quality, and often later purchased pension insurance.
In order to best target potential customers, Ocean worked with Menora to implement the Taboola Pixel on landing pages, and used Taboola’s SmartBid to ensure they were always bidding at the optimal time and price.
SmartBid is Taboola’s automated bidding technology, designed to optimize campaign performance at scale. Put simply, it matches the right bid to the right user at the right moment, and uses campaign and Taboola’s network conversion data to predict how likely a user is to convert for each and every impression.
Menora Broadens Potential Pool of Customers with Taboola Video Campaign
In order to broaden the pool of potential customers for their pension insurance product at the top of the funnel, Menora worked with Ocean to run a Taboola Video campaign, leveraging video assets created for a event television commercial.
Ocean and Taboola then worked together to build a campaign to retarget those who had watched the entire Menora video. They created new headline and image combinations that were more direct, further improving the conversion rate for Menora’s campaign.
The same retargeting campaign saw a 66% higher conversion rate than their sponsored content campaign using video viewer and website visitor audiences.
New Taboola Ad Format Improve Campaign Performance for Ocean and Menora
In addition to traditional sponsored content ad formats, Ocean also tested Taboola’s sponsored content format that includes a call-to-action (CTA) button.
Taboola’s CTA button is a creative add-on available to increase conversion performance of campaigns. The CTA appears as a button alongside the creative, and is designed to catch the attention of users and drive them towards a specific post-click action.
The ad formats that included a CTA button in the retargeting campaign generated a 15% higher vCTR and an 37% lower CPA. This campaign retargeted video viewers and website visitors.
