Blinkist Wanted To Be Competitive In Their Space

Blinkist began running TV campaigns with the goal of increasing brand awareness but were unsure if the campaigns were having the intended effect. Without this information, they ran the risk of wasting millions of dollars on unsuccessful TV campaigns, as well as falling behind competitors who were hitting the mark.

Blinkist Continues Their Campaigns With Confidence

A sample size of 12,000, powered by Latana’s algorithmic model, was run from December 2018 to January 2019. Analysis conducted in the US and Germany proved the target audience for Blinkist’s TV campaigns was spot on: ambitious millennials. Of the three countries tracked, the United Kingdom had the lowest brand awareness. Blinkist now continues their TV campaigns with confidence having confirmed they are increasing brand awareness in their target audience.
