Colvin Achieves More Valentine’s Day Purchases than Expected at a 28% Lower Cost Per Acquisition with Taboola

For Colvin, an innovative and forward-thinking startup looking to do better for their customers selling flowers online, Valentine’s Day is a major business event.

To diversify their media mix and reach as many relevant consumers as they could at scale, Colvin worked with Taboola to find those on premium news sites, online magazines, blogs and other digital properties outside of search and social platforms on the open web.

Colvin ran a sponsored content campaign to drive consumers to the main page of their website using creatives that featured beautiful bouquets built for Valentine’s Day. In order to measure their campaign, Colvin installed the Taboola Pixel. They also implemented SmartBid, Taboola’s automated bidding technology that uses campaign and Taboola’s network conversion data to predict how likely a user is to convert for each and every impression.

In just two weeks, Colvin drove 50% more purchases than their native ad campaign target at a CPA that was up to 90% lower than other channels.

After Success with Their Valentine’s Day Campaign, Colvin Tests Editorial Content at Taboola’s Recommendation

Consumers on the open web have a different mindset than those on search and social platforms — they’re engaged with editorial content. Brands that use editorial content to engage those consumers often see good performance.

The Taboola team recommended that Colvin test editorial content for their next campaign, and Colvin has moved forward with testing editorial landing pages and ad creatives written with the goal of storytelling in mind.

Colvin looks forward to continuing to work with the Taboola team for more successful campaigns in the future.
