Strategy: Created an integrated campaign with ads that customers saw when they visited certain websites in categories like shopping, entertainment, fashion and women’s interests. Those premium properties included the sites of Redbook, InStyle and Harper’s Bazaar. Individuals were also served ads on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
We found our preferred audience using data from providers such as BlueKai and Experian. That group consisted of women interested in fashion and beauty who shop online; live within 15 miles of new or existing stores in 12 markets; and are within specific age ranges. In some markets, the ads reached women ages 35 to 54; in others – based on client data about likely buyers in certain areas – ads reached women ages 18 to 34 or ages 25 to 54.
Copy in the ads rotated throughout the campaign, and the units drove visitors to landing sites relating to relevant grand openings, other store events and sales.
- Outstanding in-store traffic during the campaign, which ran two weeks before the grand opening, during and two weeks after.
- Increased online shopping by 36 percent.
The conversion rate of women who saw the ad and made online purchases exceeded the client’s campaign goals.
- There was a measurably high click-through rate to landing pages.
