Taboola’s Internal Retargeting capabilities enabled LendingTree to strategically promote (and re-promote) its content to new audiences across the web.
Grizly found Taboola users outperformed all other recommendation networks: 60-70% more pages per visit, and generating 3x more revenue per session.
Despite the rising influence of social media platforms and messaging services, email has maintained its position as a primary online communication method, and many of us struggle to keep up with the ongoing flow of new messages in our inbox each day. Boomerang for Gmail, a popular browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari, has earned a wide and reputable following for helping people better manage this problem. Notable features include the “send later” button, snooze messages, read receipts and more. Following its early launch in 2010, word of mouth played a big role in growing Boomerang’s user base, with fans recommending the product to friends and colleagues that shared similar headaches over managing their daily email flow. Search and referral channels also proved successful in recommending Boomerang to audiences that were actively seeking out email productivity “hacks.” More recently, as Boomerang continues to ramp up its user acquisition strategy, […]
As the political season continues to gain momentum, our latest Taboola Talks focused on the evolving role of digital media in the presidential election cycle. Last week, attendees gathered at the Associated Press offices in Washington, DC to hear from three leading executives in the political media realm today: Cally Stolbach, Managing Director at Politico; Ryan Coyne, CFO at Independent Journal (IJ); and Rory McCafferty, SVP Digital News Communications at The Hill. Below is a quick recap of the night’s big questions, in addition to our highlight video included above. What is different in this election cycle versus 2012? CS (Politico): Everything feels a little different, but 2012 was the first time we really saw the power of harnessing and understanding data. Organizing For Action (OFA) did such an amazing job of activating around that, and this cycle we’re seeing a lot of organizations trying to replicate that gameplan. RC […]
Pioneering a new product concept from scratch is a feat unto itself, but promoting it post-launch poses its own set of challenges. Paid search promotions work well for products or services that consumers are explicitly seeking out, but what if the company’s new offering is something that no one has seen before? Flintobox is a theme-based “discovery box” that curates exploratory activities and games for children between the ages of two and eight. Delivered to customers’ homes as a monthly subscription, each box is tailored around a specific subject, such as “Space Adventure” or “The Little Musician,” and the company has already carved out a successful niche in the Indian childhood education market. In an effort to better educate audiences about its innovative offering, Flintobox invested in robust content marketing efforts, spanning blog content, ebooks and customized landing pages. The company teamed up with Taboola to promote these items on […]
Last week, Taboolars across the globe donned costumes in the spirit of Halloween, in addition to attending their scheduled presentations and industry conferences. Below is a quick recap of each event, along with photos and relevant discussion from social media. Innovate:NY Workshop – Content For E-Commerce (New York) Taboola’s Senior Manager of Brand and Agency Development, Ben Nichols, hosted a breakfast session at The Advertising Club of New York around the topic of “Content for E-Commerce,” drawing a select crowd of brand and agency representatives. Ben’s presentation provided an overview of how Taboola can work with retailers to better promote their content across the web and drive real conversions. Sample case studies showed both the cost-effectiveness and versatility of content discovery, capable of generating six-fold average returns-on-investment for every $1 spent across the network, and driving purchases of items ranging from $40 apparel to a $10,000 couch. Mobile Marketing Conference […]
Sports fans are some of the most voracious consumers of digital content on the web today. Nielsen’s “Year in Sports Media Report,” published earlier this year, found that fans consume close to eight hours of sports-related content each week. These habits are particularly pronounced on mobile, where fans use sports-related apps twice as much as the average user, and time spent in such apps have jumped 210% in the last year (according to data from eMarketer/Flurry). With such an engaged audience, the sports industry provides an interesting lens through which to view many of the ongoing trends in the digital media space. To learn more about how some of the industry’s leading companies approach these topics, we hosted our latest Taboola Talks on “Tackling Sports in the Digital Era: How Technology is Changing the Game.” Joining us for a special panel discussion was Troy Ewanchyna, Vice President and GM of […]
Personalization has long been a topic of conversation within technology and media circles, but the intensity of that discourse has ramped up in recent years due to the rise of social media. “The users have voted by going to Facebook for their news,” said Nick Denton, the founder and CEO of Gawker Media Group. “Personalization may be the biggest issue in online media today.” Last week, over 60 attendees gathered at Gawker’s new HQ in Downtown Manhattan to hear from a select panel of executives whose companies are each grappling with the challenges and opportunities around “personalization.” Joining Nick on stage was our own Adam Singolda, founder and CEO of Taboola; Ian Fette, CTO at Gawker Media Group; and Daniel Doubrovkine, CTO at Artsy. While computer engineers have been experimenting with forms of “machine learning” since the 90s, Adam remarked that the these projects are becoming more important as companies […]
In their quest to reach the coveted “Inbox Zero,” many people around the world have installed Boomerang for Gmail, a popular browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari that helps users take control of their email inboxes. Boomerang supports an array of useful features — such as “send later,” snooze messages, read receipts, and more — that enable users to better manage the flow of incoming and outgoing emails throughout the day. Although Boomerang has had tremendous success acquiring new users through search and referral channels, their team was looking for a new way to reach audiences who may not be aware of such email productivity “hacks.” Realizing the potential for content-driven efforts to educate these new audiences, Boomerang teamed up with Taboola to craft a strategy for tapping into the “discovery” channel. Our teams published a case study about the partnership, which involved extensive A/B testing to uncover the […]
Digital-first publishers may be more nimble than their traditional counterparts, but building a loyal readership from scratch can be especially difficult given the level of online competition for user attention. While social media networks have had a “flattening” effect, allowing new sites with compelling content to quickly go “viral” and reach massive new audiences, even those platforms are becoming increasingly cluttered, and many publishers are beginning to question the value of social-referred audiences. This is a challenged faced by publishers around the world, including independent digital media company Scroll, whose online destination Scroll.in has become one of the fastest-growing news sites in India. Looking to diversify its audience development efforts, Scroll teamed up with Taboola to target engaged audiences on top sites across the web, and ultimately grow their overall readership. We published a case study that features some of the key highlights from this partnership, including data around how […]
