AdBiblio Case Study: Flora from DK

In the previous blog post, we shared how we helped DK reach ballet & dance enthusiasts for the gorgeous book Ballet! This week, we move away from the stage and deep into the world of plants. Using our niche targeting and unique reach, we were able to help DK reach botany enthusiasts, gardeners, and more for the spectacular book Flora.

Celebrating the trees, flowers, and foliage plants that share our planet, Flora takes an in depth look at the plant world with gorgeous photographs and a touch of fun facts, exploring the mechanics of photosynthesis, why leaves change colors, how cacti store water, and more! Botany meets beauty. It’s the perfect book to have sitting right next to your gorgeous indoor plants. (& might even be able to help you keep them alive!)

Flora was a fantastic opportunity to utilize our proximity targeting, reaching people in a variety of unique locations such as the The Natural History Museum, The Field Museum, and even greenhouses, garden centers and plant shops! In addition to this, the native / banner mix targeted those passionate about botany and horticulture, plant-based health, and gardening and landscaping. We were even able to reach those who work in the Zoological and Botanical Gardens industry. With our lexicon targeting, we also reached those reading content that included phrases like gardening holiday gifts, coffee table books gifts, gardening Christmas gifts, gifts for nature lovers, and more!

The campaign finished with a strong .22% CTR for proximity and .20% for the native and banner mix. The ads did particularly well with those interested in gardening and landscaping (.29%), and gardening magazine readers (.28% CTR). The science side of things also did not go unnoticed, with those passionate about biological sciences like flora and fauna ending with a .23% CTR! In terms of native placement, mobile was the CTR leader for all devices, with a .31% CTR, followed by tablet and PC. Those visiting botanical gardens and greenhouses in real time were most likely to interact with the ad, at a .25% and .32% CTR!
