Adidas, a leading global sportswear manufacturer, is a household name in Israel. With the challenge of highlighting their BOOST technology and separating it from the brand’s ubiquity, adidas turned to global agency MediaCom.

adidas’ goal was to highlight the craftsmanship of their BOOST technology, separate from their ubiquitous brand name. They had put forth efforts to do so in the past but saw no noteworthy return. MediaCom felt confident that Taboola would be the right partner to increase CTR and traffic for adidas’ BOOST campaign.

In order to optimize adidas’ video creative for the platform, MediaCom worked with the Taboola Video Studio to implement hot spots on the informational adidas videos. These hot spots provide consumers with CTAs at the exact moments they’d be most likely to click—when they’re looking for more information.

The Taboola Video Studio optimizes engagement and results by using creative best practices and a wide array of features like custom overlays, end-slates, creative consulting, and more.

The black men’s model of the BOOST running footwear, which MediaCom promoted using Taboola Video, which was featured in the video created with Taboola Studio, became a best-seller during the time that the video ran.
