BACKGROUND This Company has developed an app for parents that allow them to monitor their kid’s websites activity and photos posted on a social media. In addition the app helps your child from cyberbullying, inappropriate content, internet addiction and digital sleep deprivation. Overview The Company is a startup and needs to attain a certain amount of paid signups after the free trial in order to secure additional funding. The process for installing the app is more extensive than most app’s therefore the parents needed to be educating on installing the app and recognize the benefits they would get at a monthly subscription of $11.99. OUR APPROACH We recommended testing mobile only PPC campaigns with a call to action to download and install the app. Traffic is directed into the app store and we are able track downloads using Google Tag Manager to provide a cost per download. We leveraged advertising inside the Google Play Store to drive additional downloads. RESULTS Google search ads and Google app install ads were utilized and proved very successful in driving 3000+ installs per week at an average $1.50/install The main driver of the volume was YouTube which accounted for the vast majority of the installs at an average of $0.62/install. This helped offset the more expensive cost per install on search ads and other channels....

BACKGROUND Disney Movie Club was having trouble scaling up membership enrollments at the effective cost-per-acquisition target with the Facebook audience in the Canadian market. They had colorful creative and a great starting offer, but limited conversion volume on the Facebook Ads platform. SOLUTION Using lookalike audiences created from a massive list of subscribers from the Canadian market but more importantly the larger US market, we were able to target those Canadian citizens with similar online behavior that were most likely to take advantage of the offer. We created many different targeting groups in order to broaden the overall reach and maximize results at significantly higher monthly budget levels. RESULTS We were able to show consistent CPA measures even as campaign spend ramped up to 3x original monthly spend. For example, the Facebook campaign resulted in 64% more conversions in January than in November with only a marginal bump in the Facebook CPA. Our lookalike audiences, tested at various scales, allowed us to find the perfect targeting balance between reach and specificity. Users responded in large amounts to the creative shown to them as people similar to current subscribers — particularly video advertising.   PAID SEARCH & DISPLAY MEDIA BACKGROUND A division of Buena Vista Home Entertainment offering Disney, Pixar, Marvel and other Disney-related movie titles including recent bestsellers to beloved, heart-warming animated classics to action-packed Marvel for all ages from preschoolers to adults at discounted prices when you join DMC.

BACKGROUND This company became one of the largest online poker sites in the world. CHALLENGE There was much confusion in the marketplace whether local and national media vendors were legally allowed to air online poker commercials. Ionic Media was hired to build their brand awareness along with running DRTV and digital media to achieve a very tight allowable cost per acquisition. SOLUTION Ionic Media strategically targeted consumers on a local-media basis rather than nationally to drive membership. Ionic Media came up with the idea of creating a .NET version of Partypoker, as a place to learn and play for fun.  This allowed ALL local media vendors to accept and air partypoker media. Partnered exclusively with specific regional networks such as YES Network, New England Sports Network and Fox Sports to create and promote reality game shows centered around poker tournaments.

OVERVIEW Increased competition for students within the educational digital/online college and university space and tighter budgets presented a growing challenge for reaching a national audience cost-effectively. Baker Online benefited from the regional advertising for its nine campuses in Michigan, but struggled to gain brand awareness in other states. Competing with for-profit schools with substantially greater marketing budgets made it virtually impossible to build name recognition nationwide through traditional TV advertising. OUR APPROACH Utilizing the emerging addressable TV technology, Ionic Media expanded Baker Online’s exposure while working within their existing budget. Merging data and targeting from the digital realm with greater television coverage, viewers were targeted by household, allowing commercials to be delivered only to those homes matching their target audience demographics and behavioral criteria. RESULTS Baker Online is now broadcasting television commercials in 20+ national markets, maximizing their limited, regional budget in a way that traditional television advertising could never do.

BACKGROUND B&L is an eye health care company whose core businesses includes contact lenses and lens care products, ophthalmic surgical and pharmaceutical products.

The key was to shift behavior by discussing the hassles of reading glasses and educate consumers on how the lenses work and the benefits of multifocal contact lenses. Women represented a majority of patients so efforts were geared towards women 40-60. SOLUTION We sought engagement opportunities that allowed for an extended message opportunity. We negotiated cross-platform content integrations on The Martha Stewart Show and The Doctors. A client spokesperson was featured discussing eye care, contact lenses as an alternative to reading glasses, and demonstrating how the lenses work. Additionally, we used TiVo’s advanced capabilities to allow viewers to interact with an on-screen message to learn more about presbyopia and the multifocal lense product, by viewing a client-made video with an option to download a free trail certificate to track and optimize toward a more effective performance. RESULTS Website traffic and free trial coupon downloads spiked on days the segments aired: traffic increased 63% vs. daily average and free trail downloads increased 119% following The Martha Stewart Show airings.

TiVo subscribers were intrigued, actively engaging in the campaign and responding to the video content and requesting the free trial offer downloads. The response rate significantly beat the TiVo consumer products CPL benchmarks and had the lowest of all lead gen programs. ...
