THE SOLUTION
Creating a story blend

Over a three-week period, Batch Organics ran a series of ads in Instagram Stories. Together with its agency TRGT, the company created a series of vertical slideshows, each showing its frozen products up front and ending with a special Instagram-only discount. The company started out with simple ads, and as it learned which imagery resonated best, it went on to create more complex slideshows.

The ads ran exclusively in the UK and were targeted to a wide audience of 25- to 54-year-olds. Batch Organics intentionally kept the targeting broad to find the most relevant customers within the audience. Then, over the course of the campaign, it identified the best-performing creative and refined its targeting to reach the audiences who responded best to its ads.

At the end of the three weeks, Batch Organics saw that Instagram Stories not only helped it run more cost-effective ads, but also drove business results. Its campaign resulted in a 23% higher click-through rate, a 28% lower cost per purchase and a 32% lower cost per click.

Using ads in Instagram Stories for prospecting really transformed our overall Instagram performance, bringing down the cost per acquisition overnight.
