How we helped Savings Bank Finland?

Challenges

Savings Bank Finland’s prospecting campaign’s primary objective was to increase relevant and high-quality traffic to their site saastopankki.fi.

However, the biggest challenge they were facing was determining which activities and audiences generated optimal results in driving site traffic. The available budget was therefore split across multiple line items within Adform’s DSP.

How Ambine helped

By utilizing Ambine’s optimization algorithm to continuously monitor each line item’s performance and alter and redistribute budgets accordingly to the best performing line items.

Savings Bank Finland was able to maximize the amount of generated clicks and, consequently, traffic to the site.

Results and Future Plans

The campaign was initially set up with relatively evenly distributed line-item budgets. However, Ambine’s algorithm quickly found room for improvement and shifted budgets to the best performing line items.

As displayed below, the algorithm continued making slight adjustments throughout the campaign to maximize the output.

Without requiring any manual interventions and adjustments, the campaign generated a 30% increase n clicks during the three-week campaign and optimization period.

“Utilizing Ambine has improved efficiency, as we’ve eliminated the need for manual optimization, and are now able to use automation to enhance our advertising. It is important to consider the framework within which we operate and let AI handle the work for us. Of course, it is necessary always to consider the goals and set the framework within which automation handles optimization.”
