Breakthrough Campaign

What we did:

  • We leveraged exclusive 1st party and retailer CRM audience, including their lookalikes. These included CRM audience segments of past buyers (from Drizly) and 1st Party web engagers. Since this was a season al campaign, we leveraged a seasonal theme and messaging for Thanksgiving. Ultimately, we wanted to test if there was resilient customer demand in the growing fears of a recession, while advertisers were cutting costs to combat this fear.
