    The Goal

    The Rockerbox Solution

    Uncover the Browsing Pattern that Occurs within 30 Minutes of Converting

    Rockerbox designed Recency Insights to uncover the sites, articles and content that visitors browse within 30 minutes of arriving on a site for the first time. By leveraging Recency Insights, Rockerbox ensured users were targeted with a DigitalOcean message, only if their most recent browsing matched that of existing DigitalOcean converters. This strategy ensures that Rockerbox is targeting users whose most recent browsing is relevant for DigitalOcean.

    The Results

    Recency Prospecting Lowers CPAs while Increasing Scale

    Rockerbox drove down the cost for acquiring a new customer below DigitalOcean's initial goal within two weeks of launching. As the campaign continued, Rockerbox maintained this lower CPA, while significantly increasing weekly spend.

    Rockerbox was one of the few paid channels we found success in maintaining efficiency while increasing scale.
