Meltygroup Strikes Balance Between Monetization and Recirculation with Taboola

Meltygroup Strikes Balance Between Monetization and Recirculation with Taboola

At the end of 2018, meltygroup deployed Taboola Feed, a continuous scroll of sponsored and organic content, to offer an experience comparable to that found on social networks. As a result, readers interact longer with sponsored content, maximizing monetization and performance without sacrificing user experience.

In addition to increasing interaction with sponsored content, meltygroup was also faced with the challenge of effectively recirculating its organic content. Before integrating the Taboola Feed, articles were in an organic “infinite scroll” format, allowing users to discover the following article only by continuing to scroll down. The result was a significant number of pages viewed per user, but with relatively low engagement.

Today, meltygroup has found its balance with the Taboola Feed, which alternates sponsored content and organic content.

With Taboola, meltygroup is able to Test and Optimize Across Platforms

meltygroup and Taboola have formed an agile partnership. The commitment of the account management team at Taboola combined with meltygroup’s willingness to test new approaches paved the way for a constantly evolving partnership with the shared goals of monetary performance, the consideration of the audience experience and the recirculation of organic content.

meltygroup has been able to easily deploy the Taboola experience across all platforms––websites, mobile sites, AMP pages and mobile applications.

The ability to constantly test and learn makes Taboola pivotal in solving the editorial and monetary challenges faced by meltygroup.
