Case Study: How OptiMine Helped an Agency Partner Deliver a 14% Lift in Conversions to Their Client

Agency Partner Program Case Study banner








Publicis and the leading U.S. insurer in the supplemental health plan market.




The Publicis agency Spark Foundry leveraged its partnership with OptiMine to deploy advanced marketing measurement and optimization solutions to a large U.S. supplemental health insurer. The brand’s goal was to cost-effectively grow both B2B and B2C lead generation and new member acquisition using more intelligent digital marketing investments. Spark Foundry needed a partner to support their account team in pursuit of performance lift.




The agency faced two challenges: growing acquisitions while maintaining cost efficiency; building a white label solution for the brand to grow the client relationship and agency revenues.


OptiMine delivered on both fronts, and was uniquely positioned to serve and support Spark Foundry directly as they delivered for their client.




Critical to the client solution was the need to measure upper funnel awareness-oriented media’s impacts on lower funnel direct response campaigns. The brand needed proof that these investments were generating lift, and what their true ROI was.


OptiMine provided detailed campaign performance measures to identify the total contributions of digital campaigns on conversions across the entire spectrum: digital, mobile, call center and channel agents. This ensured Spark Foundry was receiving full credit for the total impacts and ROI of each campaign.


Spark Foundry performed all professional services for data onboarding, measurement solution delivery and strategy consulting, while OptiMine provided insights, reporting and data directly to the account team in a support role.




OptiMine’s analytics uncovered a fascinating relationship in the measurement data: prospective buyers were confused about state-by-state ACA provisions and healthcare exchanges and upper funnel ads served an educational purpose that then lifted lower funnel conversions. Upper funnel display, video and even non-brand search campaigns were lifting lower funnel brand search performance.


Armed with the insights from OptiMine’s models, Spark Foundry worked with the brand to address this market situation, and adjusted spend mix and upper funnel content to drive more leads in the brand’s funnel.


Success was seen across digital campaigns by an overall increase in conversions (+14.05%) for only a minimal incremental investment (+4.91%). This positive result also saw the corresponding cost per lead decrease (-8.01%).
