YouTube Works 2019: Best use of YouTube for performance marketing

Simply Business & Brainlabs

Contributing agency: Truant London

"A simply effective strategy for Simply Business"

With meerkats and opera singers jostling for position, the market for insurance advertising is a particularly busy one.

Simply Business wanted to convey the message that it could provide insurance for any business, large or small. Together with Truant London, it developed a creative campaign based on the celebrated English linguistic device of the pun, with the tagline: "You name it, we insure it."

Next, they wanted a media strategy to get it in front of the right people, at the right time and at scale.

Brainlabs developed a bespoke prospecting audience strategy via YouTube that delivered the ads to high-intent custom audiences at mass volume.

The results?

  • CTR targets were smashed by 36%
  • Ads reached 5.5 million people
  • Generated around 150,000 new prospects in 3 months

"With the complexity of audiences they developed and the regional testing - there was a lot there"
