iProspect’s proprietary tool iSync was used for the Pepperfry.com campaign. iSync delivers online ads synchronised with television, radio advertising, weather, sporting events, and 3rd party in real time. The objective of the campaign was to leverage the online opportunity created by the offline (TV) campaigns of Pepperfry.com and its competitor. The strategy was pegged on the insight that the online brand searches of the competitor’s brand would increase during the time period that its television ads were aired. It focused on dynamically bidding up on the competitor’s brand keywords, during their TVC slot, which ensured that users saw Pepperfry.com ads on searching for the competitor’s brand. Similarly, bidding up Pepperfry.com’s brand keywords 20% on mobile during their TVC slots, amplifying the reach of its ads online. iSync synced Pepperfry.com’s digital media buys to Pepperfry.com’s and its competitor’s TV ad slots. Messaging to capture the consumer’s content such as compelling offers in the ad copies, in sync with the messaging on TV were highlighted. This increased relevancy from the customers’ point of view and therein increased clicks on the ad. Results comprised 42% of the mobile impression share on competitor keywords, 146% increase in impression share, 82,000 brand impressions achieved in just 21 days against the competitor, 63% increase in CTR (Click through Rate), 1% conversion rate on competitor traffic, 301% increase in number of clicks and 235% increase in sales.
