Matas Finds a New, High-Performing Ad Channel with Taboola
Matas was looking to explore a new advertising channel, increasing website traffic and purchases from its beauty product pages. That’s when they found Taboola.
As the world’s largest discovery platform, Taboola serves over 500,000 recommendations per second to over 500 daily active users each month — helping advertisers expand their reach across the open web with native ads.
Matas and Taboola quickly formed a close relationship, working side-by-side to create eye-catching sponsored content. Together, they built Image Ads, which grab readers with engaging photos, and animated Motion Ads, which run on a 15-second loop, similar to GIFs. The ads were complemented by descriptions, providing readers with additional pre-click information, and impactful call-to-action (CTA) buttons.
Matas distributed these ads across Taboola’s network of over 9,000 premium publisher websites, reaching target audiences in Denmark at the
moment they were ready to engage with new content. Once they clicked through, consumers were taken directly to product pages, where they could learn more about Matas’ beauty products.
Matas Quickly Drives Purchases and Revenue with Taboola Ads
After just 5 months, Matas quickly realized Taboola would help not only increase site traffic but drive new purchases at scale, too.
Matas also implemented SmartBid, Taboola’s automated bidding technology for driving conversions. The tool uses a wealth of data to predict how likely users are to convert, and adjust a brand’s bid accordingly. With SmartBid, advertisers can make more efficient use of their spend and optimize their reach with each impression.
As a result of working with Taboola, Matas generated an 124% increase in return on ad spend (ROAS), exceeding their goals and engaging a brand-new pool of customers.
