Made.com wanted to increase website traffic during the biggest trading period of the year—its winter sale. It also hoped to achieve a higher return on ad spend compared to previous campaigns.
For Made.com’s winter sale campaign, the company developed elegant and playful creative in keeping with the brand ethos. To intrigue and amuse the viewer, the products shown in the ads were animated as if they had come to life. The design showcased both the quality of its products and the offers available in the winter sale.
The video used in Stories followed Instagram’s best practices and was made to fit mobile devices, filling the entire 9:16 aspect ratio. The eye-catching creative worked with or without sound. The ad culminated in a reminder of the offer and a clear call to action.
Made.com's winter sale campaign, which ran from December 18, 2018–January 15, 2019, achieved substantial success, particularly compared to the same period in the previous year. Results included:
69% higher return on ad spend compared to the previous sale
27% lower CPM (cost per thousand impressions) than other placements
44% increase in traffic compared to the previous sale
28% increase in new visitors compared to the previous sale
