Paid Media Acquisition Strategy

Our team partnered with The Wildest to implement a cross-channel advertising strategy encompassing Meta, Google, TikTok, Snapchat, Pinterest, Reddit, Taboola, and StackAdapt. We focused on implementing various technical campaign structures and rapid creative testing strategies to drive a sustained increase in user acquisition while improving baseline efficiency.

Meta: Developed a streamlined campaign strategy that drove an average of 28% month-over-month growth in user acquisition with four months exceeding 100+% growth. Worked with The Wildest team to identify top-performing value props for first-time customer acquisition. Through our rapid creative testing strategy, we found that dog training-related creatives had a 24% conversion rate on the platform and designed a brief to further capitalize on this winning concept.
We also partnered with The Wildest organic social team to outline a best-practice campaign structure that allowed for the acquisition of over 435,000 Instagram followers at a blended $0.67 CPF.

TikTok: As an area of opportunity, our team devised a TikTok creative & campaign strategy which achieved considerable growth of over 60,000 user acquisitions at a sub $8 CPA in line with our other media efforts. Executing this strategy as core channels hit limits of scale we were able to effectively reduce cross-channel CPA. We also partnered with the TikTok Creative Exchange to allow for high-quality influencer-style creative at no cost to the client.
We also partnered with The Wildest organic social team to outline a best-practice campaign structure that allowed for the acquisition of over 340K TikTok followers and over 1.4M likes at a media-attributed $0.26 CPF.

Expansion Channels

Worked strategically with The Wildest leadership to define a diversified search strategy which included a keyword build to amplify visibility within the non-brand space, alongside tailored ad copy based on keyword themes. Furthermore, leaning into a wider tactic mix including Discovery campaigns for Prospecting efforts.

Creative Advisory & Testing

Partnering with our creative team we developed data-backed insights into top-performing value-props and visuals that have substantially improved our on-site conversion rate and cost per acquisition. Our team generated creative briefs and helped lead a shift in brand guidelines to accommodate creative optimizations better.

Forecasting & Growth Analysis

As a part of our ongoing engagement with The Wildest, we built a model to project a path to a 400,000 users registration goal set by leadership. Our model was accurate within a ~5% margin and was instrumental in getting budgets approved and pre-allocating spend throughout our engagement.
