Wakefit.co leveraged Yahoo’s Native and DSP solutions, in conjunction with its unique first-party data, to successfully reach potential customers most likely to convert. Wakefit.co was aiming to maximize Return on Advertising Spends, (ROAS) and through a high-performing month-long campaign, clocked a 4X return on ROAS. Therefore exceeding goals on incremental revenue growth.
Setting sights high
Wakefit.co was looking to target relevant audience segments and drive quality traffic to the brand’s sleep and home solutions offerings, thereby improving product sales.
A plan comes together
Wakefit.co identified its target group on demographics - male and female customers over 25 years. Consumers with affinity, identifying habits and interests including ‘Buying a House,’ ‘Parents’ and ‘New and Upcoming Movers’, ‘Home Improvement Products’, ‘Furniture & Accessories’.
The challenge was successfully discovering and reaching these potential customers online and identifying those most likely to convert.
The campaign leveraged Yahoo’s Native and DSP solutions, in conjunction with diverse first-party data signals, garnered from search, mail, commerce, content, and more. Wakefit.co was particularly interested in unlocking advantages from Yahoo’s industry-leading targeting capabilities, stemming from robust ‘deterministic signals’ like search query signals, content consumed and commerce data of consumers across the network.
The campaign pivoted on proprietary ad technologies from Yahoo namely ‘AdLearn’ and ‘Predictive Audiences,’ which channelized artificial intelligence and machine learning to drive advanced targeting and results. Predictive segmentation uses machine learning and probabilistic equations to build a quantitative model that leverages one million diﬀerent attributes to predict the purchase probability for each user and target users most likely to convert. Additionally, Yahoo’s flexible audience targeting features made it possible to adjust the campaign for greater impact. Wakefit.co began the campaign with Yahoo Interest Categories and curated 3rd Party custom segments. Thereafter, as the campaign progressed, it doubled down on Predictive Audiences to improve ROAS.
Wakefit.co further engaged consumers with a portfolio of native experiences which drove better campaign performance and increased ROAS.
Ground floor talk
