Britbox Launch and International Expansion
Long before BritBox was streaming much loved shows to audiences around the world, they came to Pickaxe with an idea for their new streaming service. They were looking for an experienced team to help them launch a direct-to-consumer business in the US and needed some help taking the idea from concept to launch.
After launching, BritBox then wanted to improve how they collect data, and especially how they identify which customers were their best, what content drives the most acquisition and retention, and what marketing channels delivered the highest quality subscribers in order to optimize their marketing and accelerate growth.
As BritBox continued to expand into new countries, they outgrew their analytics solution and needed to improve data collection across multiple platforms and many billing providers, including syndicated and direct billing revenue streams. They needed a way to analyze acquisition performance across marketing channels, but first needed to improve ad attribution, and they had no easy way to analyze LTV or connect the dots from acquisition through consumption.
What We Did
And with Pickaxe’s additional help with schema development and analytics and data architecture, Britbox is now able to identify their highest value users, create content affinity lookalike audiences, and eliminate spend on networks providing high churn subscribers.
Four years later, the Pickaxe solutions have continued to scale with Britbox’s business across multiple regions, and a massive influx of new users
More Case Studies
Nexstar needed a better way to understand user behavior, ad anomalies, and advertising performance across the hundreds of federated stations and websites that they operate from a mix of technology platforms built by them, or that they had acquired from multiple legacy parent companies over the years. The result was inconsistent and disparate reporting.
With thousands of advertisers, this Publisher was spending several days each month configuring Google Data Studio to generate campaign-close reporting. Not only were the visualizations lackluster and off brand, but the Publisher was also running into significant INFOSEC concerns granting advertisers access to their data in a secure way.
The CMO and marketing team at Spartan Race were having challenges with getting accurate attribution across all of their paid media channels, including above the line sources like TV ads and Out Of Home. And recent changes in cookie blocking and iOS added significant confusion in the data, causing major conflict between what they believed was driving conversion vs what their internal data was showing was driving conversions.
