Channel Spotlight: Social Media

Social media continues to deliver for Australian Bananas, with a combined 29.2 million impressions (views) and 2.6 million engagements (likes, comments or saves) since the latest campaign began on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok on July 1, 2022.

On TikTok, the campaign has received 1.6 million video views and reached a total of 1.6 million people. Facebook has reached a total of 4.8 million people.

Australian Bananas has been able to achieve a 19 per cent lower cost per 1000 impressions (CPM) than was planned. This has enabled the team to deliver more impressions.

A total of 43 per cent of people who viewed the content across the campaign engaged with the advertisement in some way. At the time of this update, the cost per engagement was sitting at $0.02, below the forecasted benchmark of $0.04. As a result, Australian Bananas has been able to deliver double the number of engagements.

The low CPM has also contributed to a successful Reach and Frequency (R&F) result.  The R&F currently has a cost per 1000 impressions of $2, which is 43 per cent below the goal. Australian Bananas has been able to reach 3.2 million users of Facebook and Instagram.
