CASE STUDY

NATIVE CTV CAMPAIGN OUTPERFORMS OTHER SCREENS FOR IN-STORE VISITS

CLIENT

5mTzxTAQ.png

BJ’s Wholesale Club launched an integrated, omni-channel ad campaign promoting 44 stores in the New York area as well as 2 new stores they were opening in Long Island City, NY and Newburgh, NY.

CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES

In collaboration with leading measurement solution, Mint Measure, Origin was engaged by BJ’s digital agency to enhance and distribute BJ's CTV ad. The client's primary goals were to:

  • Lift sales by driving consumers into stores.

  • Drive membership acquisition for the 2 new clubs.

  • Elevate overall awareness of BJ's Wholesale Club.

SOLUTION USED

Fusing dynamic native content animation with proprietary ad serving technology, Slingshot stitches and serves highly engaging 15s native content directly adjacent to regular ad creatives, inside commercial breaks on Connected TV.

CREATIVE STRATEGY

For the BJ's campaign, Origin's in-house animation studio produced a 10 part series of Ad Toppers that would run directly ahead of BJ’s ad creative, quizzing viewers about their shopping habits and sharing interesting facts about what the average family consumes every day.

COMBATING CREATIVE WEAROUT. SOLVING AD FATIGUE.

The strategic rotation of Origin's 10 part series of Native Toppers against the BJ's ad meant that while viewers saw the same BJ's ad each time, they never saw the same combination of Topper + ad more than once. This elimination of ad fatigue resulted in viewers being more receptive to the brand's main message.

ANALYTICS AND MEASUREMENT

Mint Measure developed a strategy which included comparing head-to head performance for ad formats across the omni-channel campaign, assigning KPIs and proprietary metrics to media success including audience overlap, cost of unique reach and cost of unique conversion and a unified reporting and analysis of programmatic, search and social across three ad agencies.

The main purpose of Mint’s measurement strategy was to improve ad effectiveness inflight via optimizations and gain insights that can be applied to future new club openings.

Mint’s technology mapped the user journey holistically for each type of digital marketing deliverable including Native CTV. The key insights showed 5-8 exposures to ads enhanced by Origin was the ideal frequency range to drive visits to a BJ’s wholesale club.

Mint’s omnichannel measurement platform provided insights that allowed for Origin (and all other advertising partners) to align campaign delivery with BJ’s specified goals in real time. Origin worked to optimize the ad delivery to align with the analytics provided by Mint Measure, which showed in the response rate and real world visitation to the clubs.
