Working Wonders With MarketWise

August 1, 2018 at 8:30 AM

A multinational luxury vehicle brand interested in promoting brand awareness through a display video banner were looking to increase action by improving campaign CTR at a lower CPC.

They turned to Principa and MarketWise.

Based on the target audience demographics of our client, we built a custom segment from our MarketWise audience.

Our client ran side-by-side campaigns using DoubleClick Bid Manager and a targeted MarketWise audience for 10 days. The campaigns were focused on brand awareness and measured on action: click through to the website.

And the results are in.

MarketWise outperformed DoubleClick Bid Manager audiences with a 156% improvement in Cost-per-Click and a 140% increase in click-through rate.

That is reasonable until something unprecedented comes along. You can read about this black swan event in our previous two blogs here and here.
