Case Study

Green Giant Minute Mashers Leveraged Advanced TV and Shopping List Integration to Drive Awareness & In-Store Sales

CPG Brand

Minute Mashers enlisted Digilant’s help to run a small brand awareness campaign across Advanced TV in the Chicago market.

Due to its success, the brand added Florida to their target list, aiming to reach new customers and increase awareness among Winn Dixie shoppers using Advanced TV. Additionally, Digilant recommended layering on 2 additional solutions:

Shoppable Video: allowed them to educate the audience and add the product to their virtual shopping cart.

Shopping List Integration: reached moms while they were putting together their shopping list to encourage them to buy Minute Mashers.

Campaign Objective

Raise awareness and drive sales in stores at key retailers.

Key Performance Indicators

  • CTR (for OTT)
  • VCR (for CTV)

Campaign Length

March 1 – May 31, 2023

Statistics reflect March 1 – April 10th





Target Audience

  • Females aged 25-54
  • Winn Dixie or Jewel Osco current shoppers
  • Watch morning shows (ex: The View or Good Morning America), and early-morning programming
  • Purchasers of Green Giant & potatoes
  • Moms that cook and plan out recipes


Channel Recommendation

Advanced TV – CTV/OTT

Includes Connected TV (CTV) devices and Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming video content.

  • CTV is a television that is connected to the internet.
  • OTT is content accessed “over-the-top” by infrastructure providers. Content is streamed through the internet onto a laptop, mobile device, tablet, or smart TV.

We leveraged multiple full-funnel tactics, including behavioral and contextual targeting, for this campaign to reach new prospects and educate them about Minute Mashers.


  • Target the growing cord-cutter and cord-never audiences
  • Higher completion & viewability rates, plus track actions beyond the screen (website visits, in-store visits, sales)
  • Reach premium networks and content in a more cost-efficient way compared to linear TV

Shoppable Video and Shopping List Integration

A Shoppable Video ad unit ran during pre-roll ad slots to inform the audience about Minute Mashers and persuade them to purchase using Instacart for easy checkout.

Additionally, an integration with top shopping list apps, like Big Oven, was used to reach moms when they were putting together weekly/daily shopping lists and encourage them to add Minute Masher products.


  • Easier way for your audience to purchase products with just a click
  • Reach your target audience using video to promote your brand
