The following case study is anonymous to respect our partners’ confidentiality.


The cost of getting customers’ attention has increased dramatically – seven to nine fold – in the last two decades. Today, reaching consumers and building meaningful relationships is a greater challenge for brands. With no shortage of preferences and choices, and more advertisements than ever before, brands need to find ways to connect with audiences and elevate their position authentically.

The Cost of Attention is Rising

Consumers get hit with at least 5,000 marketing messages each day, a Harvard Business Review research reveals. Consumers are allocating less attention due to ad clutter, distrust, and channel proliferation. This global electronics retailer was facing challenges in targeting the right audiences. Ad clicks were increasing month to month, yet the return on ad spend (ROAS) was not hitting the target. The company wanted to focus on digital strategies to increase ad spend effectiveness and ROAS through more targeted and relevant ads.
