As a new player in the digital health space, Bloom was challenged to get scale their marketing efforts in a short time frame.Over the course of collaboration with Kitchn, Bloom was able to scale their Facebook Ads budget to 5x without hiring any additional team members.
Bloom - The World's First Digital Therapist - is a mental health app that allows people to do the therapy in an easy and affordable way. It incorporates cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques as well as journaling, meditation, mental health exercises & conscious practices to improve the quality of life.
Now, Bloom is a solid member of the top 100 Health & Fitness Apps in the US and reached over 1m downloads and 7K 5-star ratings, getting on a strong trajectory to become one of the leading mental health therapy products in the digital space.
Since Bloom is a young digital health company, it needed to rapidly scale its marketing efforts to get on the right path. Because they ran continuous experiments, they discovered that Facebook ad creative was a large lever and decided to put it at the center of their user acquisition efforts.
The objective of Bloom was to seek out the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective method to test 20+ ad creatives a week without eating up a large portion of the advertising budget. It was also decided to automate a large portion of manual ad operation work related to ad creative to allow the team to spend more time on research and creative brainstorming.
"Kitchn.io is my marketing team's superpower. Hiring somebody who can do what Kitchn.io can do would have taken months, but now we have world-class tools at our fingertips, without eating into the cost of our media spend."
Bloom used several Kitchn recipes, which decreased the amount of manual campaign creation and optimization by 95% - Bulk Ad Creation, Facebook Creative Reporting, and Automated Slack notifications. Automating ad operations allowed the team to focus on ideation and creative testing.
Using Google Sheets to bulk create ads from scratch allowed them to fully automate the ad creation process, which now started as soon as the assets were delivered. During the creative testing process, test results were immediately sent to everyone involved, and the winning ads from the test were uploaded to 'always-on' campaigns within minutes. Every week, every stakeholder working on FacebookAds receives a report with the top test and campaign ads.
Bloom was able to scale their Facebook Ads budget to 5x without hiring any additional team members, thanks to their collaboration with Kitchn. Campaign creation and management efforts were reduced by 95%, and learning from the creative tests was delivered 4x faster.
The team also used custom-built integration to Mixpannel to get better performance and in-app insights, which helped with better campaign planning and data transparency.
