Back Market was looking for an edge on the French market as part of the brand expansion.
Starting with 5 existing TV ads and VideoRunRun as a trading desk, the brand aimed to get maximum performance metrics and gain valuable branding/market insights.
VideoRunRun’s mission was to focus on the most important optimization lever for driving performance: Ad creative.
Here’s how it worked in 3 steps.
According to the brand request, VideoRunRun used the 5 original TV ads. Yet we rearranged sequences to optimize the story arc to fit mobile screens and digital consumption habits.
Each initial TV ad was then challenged with a different hook, a game-changer on a video ad’s performance.
We structured 3 tests for video hooks:
VideoRunRun tech automatically set up individual line items for each audience / creative combination / device and then let Machine Learning optimize campaigns on the Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) KPI.
The outcome: Hundred campaign lines generated and automatically optimized, leading to improved efficiency and effectiveness.
Creative analytics quickly identified a first insight: Regardless of the ads concepts all 5 ads made for TV were generating similar CPAs.
However, it revealed that all the 5 versions featuring a specific hook (“version 1”) experienced a remarkable sales increase of 2.3 times.
Thanks to these valuable insights, VideoRunRun team lifted creatives introducing a new version, starting with the product sequence in the first seconds of the video.
Our analytics data showed the undeniable success of this iteration, with sales boosted by a remarkable 3.2 times.
A deeper understanding of the dynamics between creative work and its media environment enables the refinement and enhancement of ads even during campaigns.
VideoRunRun gives brands access to invaluable insights on a range of creative elements and sequences, allowing for scoring of their impact across different audience segments.
Findings can be then injected into new productions, enabling brands to harness the value of every dollar spent.
