Boxed Drives Sales Through Recent Media Coverage with Taboola

“Boxed is comprised of people with generosity built into their DNA. When we were covered on the ‘Today’ Show for recent activities for social good, we wanted to circulate it and turned to Taboola, which brought very high quality prospects.

With pixel-based tracking, we saw a lift in people taking action on site—people saw the clip, typed our website into the search bar and signed up. Some even made purchases!"

- Emily Kalen, Senior Manager of Media Strategy at Boxed
