The first step to understanding Millennials, and what drives their content consumption and buying decisions, is to throw assumptions out. Here are our tips.
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, […]
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 […]
It’s well-known, that the competition to reach audiences in the digital universe is fierce. How do you make the most out of your limited advertising in a competitive traffic acquisition space? The answer is simple: get people to share your content. Build “buzz” into your PR, promotions, and distribution strategy. Let’s start with some simple math. If you pay a content recommendation company $300,000 to distribute a series of articles you’ve created to a group of 1 million people, you are paying $0.30 for every person you expose your video to. But if an additional 500,000 people see the video after it’s embedded in a blogpost on BuzzFeed and shared by your customers on Facebook, your cost-per-viewer decreases. The bottom line is that you need an integrated content promotion strategy: you need a healthy mix of organic and paid traffic, which comes from building trust with your target audience. But […]
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 […]
It’s no secret that mobile is taking over the world. If you’ve attended a marketing conference at any point in the past few years, you’re probably already familiar with the particulars: Americans spend more internet time on their phones than on their computers, there are more people in the world who own mobile devices than toothbrushes, and brands are going to pay big, big bucks to reach those users in the years to come. But when marketers think about converting this growing pool of mobile users into paying customers, they often skip one crucial first step along the path to purchase: engagement. Indeed, there’s no way your content recommendations are going to accomplish much of anything if you haven’t first created a mobile landing page that adds value to the user without wasting his or her time. When it comes to mobile engagement, there are no hacks, tips, or tricks […]
In recent years, technological advances around solar energy have lowered panel prices to a more affordable threshold, and many homeowners are beginning to consider residential installations that enable them to take control over their energy consumption. This exciting new market has attracted companies from around the world, including both existing energy utilities and disruptive startups. But marketing the panels can prove difficult as only certain types of houses and geographical locations are suitable for implementations. This summer, Taboola partnered with a solar energy company based in New Zealand to boost its customer acquisition efforts throughout the country. The collaboration targeted audiences located in the Greater Auckland Area, directed users to a landing page that gathered information about their house type, and ultimately enrolled eligible prospects to consider equipping their homes for a sustainable future. We published a case study of Taboola’s work with the company, including some of the below […]
