For this year-in-review video, Idomoo's Next Generation Video Platform merged dynamic scenes with interactive CTAs as well as personalised data points (like the subscriber's name, topics followed and favourite reading day) to create a more engaging, personal viewing experience.

LONDON--()--The Financial Times has launched its fourth year-in-review campaign using Idomoo’s Personalised Video technology to show subscribers around the world their personal reading journey in 2023.

The data-driven video campaign built on the success of their past campaigns, expanding it by highlighting what subscribers can look forward to this year and more opportunities to engage with relevant calls to action.

Combining creative from AlphaGrid with Idomoo’s Next Generation Video Platform, the videos merge dynamic scenes with personalised data points, such as the subscriber’s first name, topics followed, favourite reading day, and how they compare with other FT readers. As in past years, each year-in-review video was also interactive, allowing users to take actions like opting in for notifications about top stories or signing up for a newsletter.

“This has become one of our keystone annual customer relationship campaigns for two critical reasons — it’s always really well received amongst our readers and our staff alike, and it has real measurable business impact, driving customer engagement in our content as well as subscriber retention,” said Marie Goddard, Director of Customer Relationships at Financial Times. “Utilising a video format really helps ensure maximum audience engagement in the campaign and helps our audience see the value of their subscription with us.”

Year after year, the campaign is a hit with subscribers. An astonishing 93% of viewers finished watching their video last year, many watching it more than once, and engagement with the in-video CTAs is consistently high. Even better, fans share their personalised videos across social media, further spreading brand awareness with the hashtag #MyYearWithTheFT.

“We’re excited to work with the Financial Times on these dynamic campaigns that not only have great creative but also deliver real business value by promoting subscriptions,” said Yaron Dishon, Idomoo CRO. “We look forward to wowing Financial Times readers again next year.”
