RTIC pushes the boundaries of innovation with their product design and development of premier outdoor products, including coolers, hard cases, back packs, weather resistant duffel bags, stainless steel drinkware and much more.

They are leaders in quality and value and have become the first choice of the world’s most accomplished outdoor enthusiasts. 


Exhaustion of low-cost conversions across the Facebook Family of Apps

RTIC had successfully achieved tremendous growth on traditional digital channels over the previous two years. Due to increasing advertiser demand on other platforms – and increasing CPAs due to exhausted lowest-cost conversions – economies of scale made each incremental conversion more expensive than those prior. To diversify their marketing mix and enhance ROI, RTIC turned to TikTok to expand their reach and tap into exclusive audience segments that were not active on other digital channels.


Many retail businesses were closed during the month of May, 2020 due to the evolving health pandemic. Optimal saw this as an opportunity to leverage short-form motion graphic videos to capture the nostalgia of hot and fresh coffee by promoting RTIC’s insulated mugs and tumblers that customers could enjoy at home while their favorite coffee shops were closed.

With catchy Rock music and a verticallyoriented full-screen video, Optimal harnessed two of the platform’s native features to quickly captivate audiences, build brand awareness and generate purchases.


RTIC Increased Brand Affinity Among New Customers And Boosted Sales

Using creative content designed to match how users organically browse TikTok, RTIC effectively leveraged the platform to convert cold audiences into brand-loving customers. RTIC will continue to iterate on their successes and scale their budgets to produce profitable revenue on TikTok.
