ADT the leader in home security, today revealed the success of their online marketing efforts with search retargeting platform Simpli.fi. Faced with the challenge of expanding their reach while maintaining a low cost per lead, ADT and Mindshare turned to Simpli.fi to implement an online advertising campaign featuring search retargeting.
In choosing search retargeting, which targets display ads to browsers based on the search history of the browser, ADT looked to leverage its experience and expertise in search marketing to achieve success in display advertising. Using Simpli.fi, ADT achieved a cost per lead (CPL) 95% lower than their benchmark cost per lead. "It has always been challenging to find partners that work well within our small to medium sized business goals. Simpli.fi drove incremental volume within our business goals outside of our current media plans,” said Frank Rivera, Director of Online Marketing, ADT. “Simpli.fi’s search retargeting strategy fit well with our approach to digital: be flexible and nimble to test, learn, then apply those learnings to gain strong performance."

"ADT is a leader in digital direct response, and we were excited to test with Simpli.fi to leverage their platform to drive ADT's SMB business forward,” said Danny Huynh, Managing Director, Mindshare.
In addition to driving leads economically, ADT achieved a click through rate (CTR) approximately 7 times higher than their benchmark click through rate. Highly effective creative assets combined with Simpli.fi’s extensive reach and advanced keyword-level optimization capabilities drove the strong performance. “ADT and the Mindshare team are great examples of forward thinking companies that are using the latest technologies to improve their marketing efforts. It is a pleasure to work with both of them,” said Frost Prioleau, CEO, Simpli.fi.
