Truth About Cancer Case Study
Docu-Series Launch Traffic With A Full YouTube Campaign.
The Back Story
The Truth About Cancer recently geared up for their nine part docu-series launch for the fall of 2018.
The goal of the docu-series is to educate viewers on various aspects on cancer – causes, prevention and treatments.
When the idea behind a campaign is exposure, there is a fine line between which type of campaign is best. Brand consideration campaigns are great for a broad audience, and can get views fairly quickly. Site traffic and lead generation campaigns typically start slower, but have a higher conversion rate because their views are more qualified.
The main obstacle in this launch was breaking down the campaigns and choosing which direction would be best and most efficient to push the rest of the month.
Marketing Hy and The Truth About Cancer decided to do the following:
- Build out various YouTube campaigns and test for best results
- Move down to one primary campaign once optimized
- Use an educating video with a call-to-action
- After launch: push each episode as they go live
- Get the lowest cost per click and conversion possible staying in campaign budget
The Creative Assets
A simple landing page is important when you are looking to get opt-ins. If someone leaves YouTube to fill out a form, you want it to be seamless for them.
Ad Creation and Optimization
Since we focused solely on YouTube campaigns for our part in this launch, we had a lot time to tweak and optimize the ads and audiences we ran with.
As things got going and adjustments were made, costs dropped dramatically and we were able to get great, efficient results. Click on the images to see our progress through the campaign period.
