Goals and challenges
Pelican Products had been managing media buying in-house but needed a more strategic approach for all of the markets it served.
To accomplish Pelican Products’ goals, Capitol Media Solutions:
- Utilized comScore and SRDS data to narrow target audiences by function (HR, facility manager, etc.) and developed tactics for each.
- Renegotiated for better placements to increase audience response.
- Drove 20-30% higher conversion rates in digital. CMS kept the same budget but used more engaging ad units, such as synched ads and homepage takeovers.
- Leveraged ad placements to secure 30% discount on conference exhibit and sponsorship opportunities.
Capitol Media Solutions achieved more effective media buys with its targeted and strategic approach. In digital, the agency decreased cost-per-click for Pelican Products by 23% year-over-year.
