Course Registrations Increase Dramatically After Taboola Campaign
Smart Targeting Assures Campaign Efficiency

Basic Bananas uses an integrated mix of online and offline marketing, including strategic partnerships, direct mail, Facebook advertising, Twitter advertising, social media content and content marketing. Adding Taboola to this mix proved to be one of its most effective strategies and supporting all other marketing strategies.

The company’s Taboola campaigns included both performance campaigns and editorial content campaigns, with creative that either linked straight to a landing page to book a ticket for a workshop or to an informative blog post. 

Editorial content offered business owners a taste of the value of Basic Banana’s workshops – such as branding insights or information on creating a marketing plan. Visitors are then invited to join one of the company’s workshops. Taboola has fit perfectly into the overall approach, adding value first, and building relationships with their customers.

Taboola analyzes hundreds of real-time signals to promote Basic Bananas content to relevant audiences – reaching those most likely to be interested in their content and courses. Targeting only the most receptive audiences optimizes both conversions and costs for the company.
