Background & Overview

Engagement increased by 306% and Loyalty by 98% for a combined increase in page impressions per user per week of 608%

The Problem:

Signia, as a long-standing partner and solutions supplier to the Bonnier Group sought to identify and design a content delivery platform to improve the user experience of their digital magazine websites.

With a focus on seeking solutions to improve Engagement and Loyalty. The client also identified a significant problem with the increased use of ad blockers by its users, ranging from 20% to as much as 55% on some properties, causing substantial loss of revenues.

The aim of the Trail:

Signia collaborated with the publisher, running a trial whereby all of the traffic from users using ad blockers to the automotive website TeknikensVärld.se where redirected to a Mosaiq.io version.

The primary objectives where:

  1. does the same content but presented via the Mosaiq platform increase pages per session, i.e. Engagement, and;
  2. does an improved user experience via Mosaiq increase repeat website visits or sessions per week, i.e. Loyalty, and;
  3. could Mosaiq be used as an effective technology to sustain the delivery of display advertising through ad-blocking software whilst also respecting visitors concerns relating to digital advertising and would they accept and engage with the Mosaiq-style ads?

The Results:

Engagement increased by 306% and Loyalty by 98% for a combined increase in page impressions per user per week of 608%.

Mosaiq sustained delivery of display advertising despite the use of ad blocking software.
