Duracell Powers Advertising Efficiencies Across Platforms

The Setup

As the leader in the primary battery market in North America, Duracell products are at the heart of devices that connect, protect, and simplify the lives of their consumers. Since its inception in the early 1940s, the company has become an iconic personal power brand, trusted for compact and longer-lasting batteries.

In partnership with their advertising agency, Mediacom, Duracell needed an infrastructure that could more strategically uncover ways to optimize their media spend across channels. VideoAmp worked with the brand to create a hybrid solution that satisfied two needs: capture market share by identifying audiences beyond age and gender to reach incrementally, and create a measurement baseline to test the efficacy of multiple strategies within the VideoAmp platform.

This test and learn approach afforded the brand and agency an opportunity to better understand how their media strategy was performing, and what optimizations could be made across their linear and digital buys. Measurement was extended beyond linear to digital partners including ViacomCBS, Discovery, FOX, CW, Amazon, YouTube and Facebook, providing a more accurate representation of partner performance.

"We initially sought out VideoAmp to provide additional measurement and insights across TV and Digital. As we evolved our approach together, we’ve uncovered audiences & strategies that enable us to optimize our buys and unlock cost savings across screens.

The greatest value VideoAmp provides are the insights and recommendations they share with us; they are easily digestible and immediately actionable for our team to make regular optimizations and improve performance. But beyond this strategic rigor and day-to-day service, VideoAmp also brings forth new, value-driven opportunities for us to participate in quarter over quarter, like Upfront Planning Analyses, YouTube Measurement, and Facebook Attribution."
