Client: Raddish Kids

Raddish Kids is a monthly subscription service that helps parents teach their children how to cook in a fun and educational manner. It provides kits that include step-by-step recipe guides, comprehensive grocery lists, and everything kids need to get started in the kitchen.

Summary

Despite stiff competition on Facebook ads, cooking club subscription service Raddish Kids increased its conversion rate by 36% and scaled its business by focusing on creative concepts to appeal to different motivations of the target audience(s).  

Challenges

  • Lower conversions and increased CPA (Cost per Action) despite 25% increase in monthly budget, as compared to 2018.
  • Limited resources to test multiple creative concepts due to a lean in-house team.
 

Marketing Objectives

  • To maximise profits and increase conversions during the 2019 year-end festive season.
  • To maintain profitability while competing in the Facebook ads auction during the Q4 2019 gifting season.
  • To test a wider range of ad creatives and messaging in order to scale their business.
  • To improve ROAS (Return on Ad Spend) by minimising the impact of rising media costs.
 

Target Audience

  • Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts.
  • Has a little master chef among them.
  • Looking for a unique gift that isn’t just another plastic toy.
  • Wants something that the whole family can enjoy and learn from.

Solution

With the target audience in mind, Creadits formulated four broad creative concepts. Each distinct concept was based on one key message and was represented by various different visual directions.

The high volume of variations and range of concepts were instrumental in allowing Raddish Kids to identify niche sub audiences, which led to successfully scaling their subscription service. Variations include a mix of videos, statics and motion graphics for each creative concept.

"Creative is the key driver for paid social acquisition performance, and Creadits keeps our arsenal well stocked. We're able to test many more variations of ad creative than we could on our own. They've done a great job of synthesising our value propositions and keeping concepts fresh across all digital formats."
