The Problem

Driving brand awareness

Already a dependable and well-known product for treating athlete’s foot, Silka (subsidiary of Genomma Labs) reached out to Cardinal Digital Marketing to establish a partnership with a digital marketing agency to help support its objective of driving brand awareness and consideration for Silka athlete’s foot cream. The company wanted to create a variety of media campaigns in order to access a broader and more diverse market and deliver enough media weight to see a lift in product sales in 2020.

Both the 20,719% increase in new users and 18,487% increase in pageviews provides overwhelming evidence of the campaigns’ potency.

The Results

Consistent growth trends

Consistent growth trends, upwards of 15,000%, across sessions, new users, and pageviews, indicate the strong performance of these campaigns. Videos from this campaign alone have driven more than 3.9M views in the United States, directly driving brand awareness in non-hispanic markets, specifically. OTT video completion rates top an impressive 96%.

People are watching. People are engaging. And people are clicking through.
Contributing to this strong campaign performance was the efficiency and optimization with which they were executed. The average cost per video view across social media, OTT, and YouTube was $0.01. Cost per click (CPC) was also quite efficient at $1.21, 60% less than the market average.
