SPE Thailand Distributes Movie Trailers on Taboola Video to Reach Audiences at Scale

SPE Thailand Distributes Movie Trailers on Taboola Video to Reach Audiences at Scale

SPE Thailand wanted to drive large amounts of awareness for upcoming movie releases—specifically Venom (Oct. 2018), Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween (Dec. 2018) and Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse (Jan. 2019).

They wanted to find a channel that would help them drive both awareness and ticket sales. To do so, they traditionally distributed movie trailers on popular social media sites which helped create awareness but hadn’t made a significant impact on ticket sales.

SPE Thailand started working with Taboola in the hopes of impacting both branding and performance goals, as well as for the opportunity to reach a wider range of target and prospective audiences on premium publisher sites.

Taboola Video is an elegant, non-disruptive experience that is optimal for branding and awareness goals. Videos are backed by the scale and reach advertisers need across exclusive inventory.

SPE Thailand looks forward to expanding their relationship with Taboola, and utilizing the Taboola Video Studio in the future to continue to support their various goals.

Traditional mediums have always been part of our campaigns, and with the changes in how audiences consume media, so we have adjusted our strategy accordingly. Taboola Video has proven to be a great platform to bring us massive campaign scale.
