We were initially very happy when we saw a high volume of quality traffic from Taboola, which increased engagement with Stoloto’s content. We were thrilled when they reported an increase in conversions, and upon further investigation, learned Taboola was responsible for that uplift as well. We then doubled down on conversions as our KPI, and have successfully decreased the acquisition cost for a lottery signup on behalf of Stoloto.
