Conversion Quadruples and Brands See 21% Click-Through Rate with SteelHouse’s Real Time Offers

SteelHouse’s Real Time Offers™, powered by A2, yield a high conversion rate for online retailers looking to engage with their shoppers, on and off their site.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Jan. 23, 2013) – Brands looking to increase sales conversions during Q4 utilized SteelHouse’s Real Time Offers combined with the company’s rich media A2 ad format to create and deliver onsite ads that drove 21% click-through rates and quadrupled conversion.

SteelHouse (www.SteelHouse.com), an online advertising and marketing technology company, offers a suite of products that take standard display ads and marketing campaigns to “high-definition,” by creating visually stunning ads and reinforcing it within a brand’s own site real estate and beyond, using retargeting and onsite offers. Specifically, SteelHouse’s Real Time Offers powered by A2, which can feature branded video, custom fonts, product carousels, countdown timers and more, have nearly four times higher conversion rates, yield a 950% jump in click-through rates, and help to close the sales cycle even faster when used in conjunction with display and retargeting ads.

“Relying on only standard display and retargeting ads to message our potential customers doesn’t cut it anymore. The market has changed,” said Caitlin Romig, Digital Marketing Lead at Rosetta Stone, the world’s leading provider of technology-based language-learning solutions. “SteelHouse enabled us to go even further with our marketing by using A2 ads and adding Real Time Offers to our campaigns. As a result, we saw a 32% lift in RPV (revenue per visitor) and an 18% click-through rate on one of our Cyber Monday promotions. In 2013, we plan on continuing to work with SteelHouse on this integrated campaign approach.”

In addition to Rosetta Stone, brands such as Figi’s, Creative Labs and Monoprice, are also using SteelHouse’s Real Time Offers and A2 ads in their integrated marketing approaches. Real Time Offers are easily accessible from within the SteelHouse Behavioral Marketing Platform and are installed by a single JavaScript tag. They enable brands to connect and engage with their shoppers and can be used alone or in conjunction with their branding or retargeting campaigns. This SteelHouse innovation has drastically helped to close the sales cycle even faster, drive conversion, and increase average order values across any shopper segment.

“It all comes down to smart marketing, dynamic and visual content, and data intelligence to match offers and messaging with the right customer,” said Mark Douglas, President and CEO of SteelHouse. “Most customers are already sitting on a gold mine – their data. Mining that data and knowing how to convert it into revenue is our specialty. This will be a big trend in 2013 – marketers finding their gold mine and building campaigns (retargeting, onsite ads, email, and more) that integrate rich media using their existing content, and launching them into the right sequence of channels at the right time and using one channel to reinforce the other. The brands that know how to incorporate each of these pieces into their integrated marketing approach will see the highest return in sales.”
