Apex campaign highlight

  • For The Cleveland Orchestra's Blossom Music Festival 2023 campaign, APEX promoted 4 different performances across roughly 9 weeks via programmatic display. APEX saw a very strong combined ROI of over 1,564%, roughly 2.0X the ROI we achieved for a similar display campaign with another programmatic vendor in the same time frame in 2022. CTR was also slightly higher with APEX at 0.05% vs. 0.04% with the other vendor. The Cleveland Orchestra has continued to focus programmatic display efforts on APEX over the past few months, as they consistently see strong conversions and solid engagement.
