Planit Attracts Potential Customers Interested in Vodafone Content 71,000 Times with Taboola
Vodafone is always looking for new and creative ways to find potential customers. In order to capture their relevant audience, Vodafone and Planit developed several different marketing angles for their campaign; which included ads targeted at a business-to-business (B2B) audience. Some ad creatives spoke directly to startup-sized businesses, whereas others focused on mid-market or enterprise segments.
Planit then chose to work with Taboola to reach potential Vodafone customers outside of search and social channels; across premium news sites, online magazines, blogs and relevant niche sites on the open web. As the campaign ran, Vodafone and Planit redirected ad spend to support those angles that were the most successful, by optimizing for CTR. The B2B segments were the most successful of all.
Working with Taboola, Planit was able to attract potential customers interested in reading Vodafone business content over 71,000 times.
Throughout the course of the 12 week campaign, Planit decreased CPC by 58.14% and increased CTR by 242%. Their mobile campaign CTR was 253% above benchmark, while their tablet campaign was 333% above benchmark.
Taboola Outperforms Direct Competitors for Vodafone Using Brand Safety Integrations
To keep Vodafone’s brand safe, Planit also leveraged Taboola’s IAS partnership, the first-ever integration to directly apply pre-bid brand safety within a native discovery platform.
This integration, as well as both Planit’s and Taboola’s ad creative and optimization expertise, led to Taboola outperforming direct competitors for Vodafone’s campaign. Taboola drove a 363% higher CTR and a 49% lower CPC than direct competitors.
“Taboola’s unique offering empowers advertisers to connect with new audiences at the funnel’s apex. With low CPCs and premium placements, it provides advertisers the perfect opportunity to educate customers on the benefits of their product or service.”
