Helping a New QSR Menu Item Succeed

Feeding store visits by finding the audience the QSR was hungry for.


Client Objective

A top QSR brand asked Samsung Ads to help reach audiences unexposed to their linear TV ad, to drive awareness and store visits. 



Linear ads reached only 31% of the Samsung Smart TV households; 69% did not see the brand’s ads.



Using Samsung Ads’ proprietary ACR data to identify households unexposed or lightly exposed to linear TV ads, we boosted incremental reach by adding Connected TV (CTV) Video and Online Video.



 - 27% Incremental HH reach, with only 0.8% duplication of linear reach

 - CTV ads drove +8.9%1 lift in visits

 - Exposure to Samsung Ads led to +350k visits to the QSR restaurant

 - 14% of total visits came from new or lapsed customers
