Case Study: New Balance
New Balance uses Hookit data and insights to identify its most valuable content to reach ROI goal of 300%.
“Hookit data and insights have given us the power to make smarter content and sponsorship decisions that have boosted our content marketing ROI by 3X.”
-Ian Fitzpatrick, Head of Global Content and Digital Marketing at New Balance
The New Balance Marketing team had an ambitious goal of increasing the effectiveness of their marketing spend by 3X and to right size their production-to-media ratio.
In order to achieve these ambitious growth goals with a strict budget, New Balance worked with Hookit to evaluate the effectiveness of social content. The partnership led to significant strategic shifts, including:
- Content production go/no-go decisions to reduce wasted budget on content that doesn’t drive engagement or brand attribution.
- Social media paid investment modelling through a data-backed strategy that focuses on optimizing spend toward posts that drive the highest value rather than social budgeting based on a product calendar.
- Media and production reallocations for the coming fiscal year that’s rooted in value return on investment and marketing effectiveness.
