_Apex_ campaign highlight

  • For our client, The Cleveland Orchestra, we recently tested two different programmatic display partners within the same campaign - Quantcast, a managed partner, as well as Apex. The Quantcast campaign was focused on look-alike modeling based on purchasers whereas the Apex campaign utilized a combination of 3rd party audiences and retargeting. Ultimately we decided to switch to Apex only as it delivered a 2.5X higher ROI, 35% lower CPA and 2X CTR compared to Quantcast. In consultation with the client, we've since decided to focus our programmatic display efforts on APEX, which has consistently delivered solid conversions and engagements.
