The Goal

Increase awareness and purchase intent for the snack products

  • Increase purchase intent of products. Their primary goal of the campaign was to exceed a .07% CTR benchmark.

The Strategy

The healthy snack company partnered with Digilant to plan and execute a social campaign on Facebook to raise awareness of the snack brand among health-conscious consumers in the US. Digilant’s team formed a strategy that was geo-targeted to align with creative that promoted new products at specific grocers. In addition, Digilant funneled traffic to product-specific landing pages and to the “where to buy” location finder. 

Ads were targeted to audiences that consisted of US adults aged 18 and over who were health-conscious, healthy snack buyers, and healthy beverage buyers. Ads were placed in Facebook News Feed, Instagram Feed, and Instagram Stories. Throughout the campaign, audience targeting and ad placements were optimized to shift the budget to reach the most responsive audiences across the highest performing ad placements.
