The client is a film marketing company called The Arsonist. They primarily focus on marketing indie films and specialize in building strong awareness, growing audiences and enhancing investor returns.
We were tasked with increasing leads for their film marketing firm. The target market was indie film producers and directors who have a funded film ready to go to market.
With the brief in mind, we decided to run our campaign across Facebook and Instagram for 10 days, optimizing for conversions. The conversion in this case was a lead form on the client’s website that asked for basic contact information. The submission of this form counted as a conversion within our ad campaign.
The targeting used in this ad campaign included A/B tests between film distributors, indie film festival interests, indie film sites interests and website user retargeting.
The creative used in this campaign was sleek, well-branded graphics that provided further clarity on the offerings of the clients.
In total, we achieved 61 leads. The best performing audience was targeting users interested in specific indie film sites. This audience achieved 38 leads out of the total.
The average cost per lead was $6.02. Given the specificity of the target audience, this result is phenomenal to see and indicates appropriate targeting and creative.
In addition to the leads achieved, we also saw a click through rate of 1.73% resulting in over 350 landing page views. These will be implemented into a future website retargeting campaign.
The average time users saw an ad within this campaign was 1.60. This is important because it indicates users understood and became interested in the offering almost immediately.
