Eargo Sees Better Scale with Native Ads than Search, Social Channels

Eargo knows their market well, and they needed a channel where they could reach an audience experiencing mild to moderate hearing loss. Search wasn’t showing returns for this audience.

Eargo turned to native advertising, for which Taboola was their number one option. Taboola drove a quality audience that Eargo had not seen from any other platform. To drive this success, Eargo distributed both their homepage and product landing page with three different versions of their creative. When they saw the homepage perform, they retargeted users that didn’t convert and sent them to the product landing page for even better scale.

Taboola’s Smart Bid had an immediate positive impact on our lead generation campaigns in two meaningful ways: first, it led to an almost instantaneous 20% decrease in our cost per lead. Second, it greatly reduced the amount of time we have to spend on optimizations, as Smart Bid removed the need to manage bids at a site level. Thanks to Smart Bid, we now spend more time thinking about meaningful targeting and creative strategies, and less time worrying about rote bid management.
