Xaxis Uses IAS’s Context Control Targeting to Successfully Raise Awareness for a Fashion Brand
TAIWAN – JANUARY 11, 2021 – Integral Ad Science (Nasdaq: IAS), a global leader in digital media quality, and Xaxis, the outcome media company, today announced a case study in Taiwan on how they used Context Control Targeting to increase campaign performance, website traffic, and brand awareness for a major fashion retailer, all within a short span of eight days. Xaxis prides itself in staying ahead of the curve and leveraging the best technology in the market to drive results. Xaxis Taiwan needed to raise brand awareness and drive as much website traffic as possible for a major fashion retailer within eight days. With the impending deprecation of cookies, they proactively explored alternatives to audience targeting.
To address this challenge, Xaxis activated Context Control Targeting, using vertical-based contextual targeting segments and audience proxy targeting segments to drive website traffic and site visits for the advertiser’s wedding apparel campaign. Xaxis explored innovative ways of targeting throughout the campaign, and IAS demonstrated strong results for both click-through rate and site visits. In fact, the click-through rate was 3 times higher than competitive benchmarks.
“As we progress into the cookieless future, our ability to connect, engage, and influence consumer actions that drive real business outcomes continues to be a challenge amidst the rapidly changing landscape. Partnering with IAS on this front enabled us to leverage the power of AI and advanced contextual capabilities that enhance relevance at scale,” said Jona Oboza, General Manager, Xaxis Taiwan.

These campaign results highlight how contextual targeting can help drive greater performance and efficiency. Our solutions give programmatic buyers unprecedented precision for targeting content that is contextually relevant for a given brand or campaign to increase recognition, engagement, and favorability.”

We always look forward to better solutions that can make advertising more relevant and immersive for the target audiences, and that’s why we continue to partner with IAS,” said Nelson Tsai, Client Development and Product Strategy Lead, Xaxis Taiwan.
