About the award and our submission
The Global Digital Excellence Awards celebrates excellence by recognizing innovation, creativity, and exceptional work within the digital sphere. It encompasses various categories, from innovative campaigns to pioneering digital platforms significantly contributing to the industry.
Skai’s “Best Use of Data” submission highlighted a successful advertising campaign led by digital marketing agency Croud and its client, men’s grooming brand Every Man Jack. In this campaign, the teams used Skai’s advertising platform to centralize campaign management, focusing on increasing net SKU profitability and boosting profitability by 50% for Every Man Jack’s Beard products on Amazon Ads. Skai’s platform enabled Croud to focus on data and KPIs aligned with Every Man Jack’s business objectives rather than surface-level metrics.
Skai’s data capabilities allowed for integrating profit margin data and algorithmic bidding strategies, providing a more nuanced understanding of campaign performance. Ultimately, the campaign realized a 216% increase in net SKU profitability for the Beard category, exceeding the initial 50% target while maintaining overall revenue. This successful use of Skai’s secure data architecture, Croud’s innovative approach to data, and Every Man Jack’s commitment to insight-driven marketing underlines the effectiveness of this campaign — and why it is a “Best Use in Data” award finalist.
Skai CMO Margo Kahnrose stated, “This nomination is not just a validation of Skai’s relentless pursuit of excellence but also a testament to the successful collaborative efforts we’ve forged with our partners at Croud and Every Man Jack. Focusing on data-driven results has allowed us to create strategies that translate into tangible business success. This recognition fuels our drive to push beyond boundaries and deliver the best for our clients.”
