California Almond Board Hoopla Digital Brief Response

Meeting the Brief

  • Raising Awareness - Through a combination of high impact dynamic units that can house video & bespoke engagement elements we can create a unique user journey that speaks to Jane on multiple levels ensuring maximum cut through.
  • Reaching the Audience - Targeting the Jane audience across a combination of food & lifestyle content overlapped with proximity, contextual, TOD & audience data insight for more precise messaging opportunities.
  • Cross Platform - All creative units are built to run across all platforms & are responsive to adapt messaging to all screen sizes.
  • Maximising Viewability - All our units are designed to maximise viewability opportunities through lighter loads & sticky design elements that ensure messaging stays with the user even if they scroll past the original ad slot.
  • Brand Uplift - With spends of £50k+ Nielsen brand uplift studies can be included as value. These can be aligned to cover different uplift metrics. The study is launched as a single multiple answer question to users exposed & unexposed to brand messaging.

Creative Concept

Creative Strategy will look to combine effective dynamic impact ads with a blend of targeting approaches including proximity (users at the gym, in store, on train routes at rush hour & office blocks), contextual to relevant article content & audience data for specific interest points. This will allow us to ensure minimal wastage & maximum effect with direct messaging to users in their environment & to their interest points.

Device strategy will also play a key role in this to ensure that we are reaching Jane on the right platform at the right time. e.g. desktop focus during working hours & lunch breaks, mobile focus during the commute, tablet during evening downtime etc.


All approaches listed can be actioned within each ad format listed with the costs plan.

Parallax Scrollers: Within the creative we can simulate parallax effects that bring the visuals to life through user scroll allowing for a longer messaging opportunity.

For California Almonds this can work as a way of visualising multiple applications for almonds into healthy eating plans e.g. as the user scrolls it can display different recipes or meal visuals alongside a constant video. This would vary based on the users location & device e.g. if in the office they are likely to only have limited opportunities & have a focus more on snacking so messaging would focus around snack draw opportunities whereas in the evening or morning commutes they might be looking for inspiration so messaging could be more expansive to exciting meal recipes.

This works best on Page Frames, Impact Inpage & Sticky Billboards but a similar approach can be applied to other formats through swipe/shake rather than scroll.

The below visual is a great representation of what could be done -

Custom Sliders: For a varied audience like Jane a slider or selector creative provides a great opportunity to allow her to personalise her journey into something she can get the greatest value from. The unit would present Jane with a series of choices across the audiences interest points that when narrowed down would present her with a custom suggestion for her interest.

Dynamic Messaging: This will be applied in all creative variations either with a simple messaging structure to a few key focuses or much more detailed for complete personalisation to that user based on their location & the context of their environment. e.g. if on public transport -

Hoopla's Viewability Solution

Across all of our video based units we enable our bespoke Video Drop feature that ensures video & branding remain with the user even if they were to scroll away from the primary creative. When users scroll away the video drops into the bottom right corner of the page with a supporting CTA banner. Users can click to take this back to the original creative or click through to site.

  • Viewability - 100% viewability is achieved, ensuring your videos get seen.
  • Completion rate - Significant increase on completed views 85% vs benchmark of 70%.

Hoopla are partnered with Tastemade & National Geographic allowing us to offer brand takeovers of their discovery platforms on set days.
