The opportunity

Online retailer Touch of Modern (@TouchofModern) is known for its cutting-edge lifestyle products, and its customers visit to discover appealing items. For its promotion launch of Prada clothing, Touch of Modern wanted to cost-effectively drive app installs, signups, and purchases from its target audience of affluent males between the ages of 22 and 55.

The strategy

Touch of Modern and its mobile advertising partner used Twitter's Mobile App Promotion solution to reach its target audience while cost-effectively driving app installs, signups, and purchases. To promote the Prada sale, the brand used the 1.91:1 Image App Card ad format. This allowed @TouchofModern to captivate its audience’s attention by using a combination of first-party and Twitter data for lookalike targeting.
