GAIA Uses Taboola Sponsored Content Campaigns to Promote Winter Catalogue

GAIA Uses Taboola Sponsored Content Campaigns to Promote Winter Catalogue

The founders of GAIA were looking to service a very specific niche at the company’s inception—they wanted an appropriately sized, stylistic furniture selection for Mexico’s growing urban-style apartment dwellers.

GAIA provides great quality furniture at a great price—their only challenge is to spread the word about new trends and styles to potential customers.

In order to do so, GAIA launched a digital campaign with a main objective of driving traffic to their website. This aligned with their overall digital strategy, in which 60% of their budget was devoted to brand awareness efforts, and the rest was devoted to lower-funnel strategy.

GAIA used Taboola sponsored content campaigns to promote their it’s catalogue in order to drive high amounts of quality website traffic.

Taboola Drive Up to 4 Minutes Higher Average Time on Site Than Search and Social Channels

In order to measure brand awareness, GAIA focused on metrics like campaign click-through-rate (CTR), bounce rate, average time onsite, and CPM and CPC goals.

Traffic from social and search platforms averaged from one to one-and-a-half minutes, whereas traffic from Taboola averaged between four and five minutes. The addition of Taboola to their media mix decreased their bounce rate by 5%.

The success of their campaign came in part by their partnership with Taboola’s account management team which was critical in helping to develop GAIA’s creative strategy. Their work helping to craft effective titles and eye-catching creatives helped drive GAIA’s success.

GAIA values the close partnership they’ve found with Taboola’s account management team, and looks forward to expanding their relationship with Taboola in the future.
