Prior to working with Taboola, iQuanti faced challenges scaling the number of leads for HomeEquity Bank’s campaign. Channels like paid search and social, GDN, Yahoo and Zemanta were driving results with high costs per click and acquisition, as well as low conversion volume.

To achieve HomeEquity Bank’s conversion goals, iQuanti ran multiple campaigns with different targeting tactics—including audience segmentation, retargeting and audience segmentation. 

These campaigns promote HomeEquity Bank’s mortgage product, known among Canadian Seniors as CHIP (Canadian Home Income Plan). The campaign captures leads through dedicated landing pages. 

In order to drive more leads, iQuanti further optimized their campaign using Smart Bid. Smart Bid is Taboola’s bidding feature that helps maximize campaign performance by automatically adjusting the baseline bid of every impression based on the likelihood to drive conversions or page views.

Taboola Drives 30% of All Paid Leads for HomeEquity’s Campaign

The release of Smart Bid happened in tandem with the implementation of Taboola Pixel, giving iQuanti advanced tracking capabilities. With Smart Bid, iQuanti was able to achieve higher scale, more conversions and a lower CPL. With Taboola, iQuanti saw a 110% increase in leads after the release of Smart Bid—driving 30% of overall paid inquiries and an 30% decrease in prospecting CPL.

iQuanti is happy with Taboola’s account management team, who has worked closely with them to provide optimization and creative advice. “Taboola’s Account Management team has worked closely with us & helped us through our journey to make the best of the platform.”
