Its wide variety of made-to-order sofas is designed to fit in any home, from sprawling open floor plans to the railroad apartments any city dweller knows all too well.

Their array of customization options mean you’re getting a couch quite literally built for your home and your lifestyle.

Challenge

Then came iOS 14.5

In today's market, customer acquisition is one of the biggest pain points for most DTC businesses. Especially when you're selling $2,000+ couches on the internet. Strategically placing their ads in front of people who are actually likely to buy was critical to lowering their costs, but their Facebook advertising felt like a shot in the dark. Apt2B had been shelling out a couple thousand dollars a month and shuffling between a handful of agencies to try to improve the brand’s performance on social media.

With Apple's privacy rollouts, things went from bad to worse. Advertising costs climbed and ad attribution had become even more complex. It was critical for Apt2B to find a solution to their paid media woes.

"In the post-iOS14 world, we had lost confidence in Facebook. But through Proxima’s audience targeting technology, we were able to generate more revenue on less spend! While other businesses have looked elsewhere for advertising solutions, we're seizing the opportunity and are investing more in the Facebook platform."

Solution

With Proxima, Apt2B 3x'd ad spend and cut their CPA by 11%

Apt2B needed a way to find more buyers while lowering acquisitions costs. That's where Proxima comes in. With Proxima, Apt2B leverages machine learning to create custom, high-intent audiences that maximize reach and help drive conversions.

12 months ago, Apt2B implemented Proxima’s AI and hasn’t looked back. Proxima’s audiences have consistently outperformed all of the brand’s third-party and Facebook-generated audiences. Apt2B has tripled their Facebook and Instagram marketing spend while reducing CPAs by 11%. They generated 4x more revenue through Proxima’s audiences than if they had put those ad dollars into their other audience targeting strategies. "The new performance achieved was so cost-effective at scale that our team had to triple-check the results," said Alex Back, COO of Apt2B.
