Kleenex Campaign Remedies Media Waste with Incremental Reach

The setup

As the world’s first and America’s best-selling facial tissue, Kleenex develops products that meet their consumers needs for comfort, reassurance, and quality. Part of the Kimberly-Clark family of brands, Kleenex communicates with their audiences through meaningful and personalized advertising that resonates when and where it matters most.

Kleenex, in partnership with Mindshare, wanted to capitalize on the Cold ‘N Flu season by generating incremental reach outside of linear via their programmatic media. By leveraging VideoAmp’s TV Viewership Segments, the brand was able to activate custom exposure segments through data-driven digital targeting, and receive granular cross-screen insights to ensure reach of the right  audience at optimal frequency.

Ultimately, Kleenex was able to successfully achieve their business objectives of driving incremental unique household reach across digital, while generating over $200K in media value within a single month.
