The Challenge

The AI image generation industry has seen rapid growth, with numerous players entering the market offering varying degrees of personalisation and quality. 

Despite being in a burgeoning industry, Artisse faced stiff competition from a surge of similar companies entering the market. The company was seeking to distinguish itself and establish a strong foothold in the personalised photography sector. 

Artisse tasked us with increasing their app install base and growing their paying customer base, all while maintaining a cost-effective approach.

Consumers are drawn to apps that provide easy-to-use interfaces and deliver high-quality results without the need for extensive manual editing. We set ourselves the task of highlighting the unique selling points (USP) of the Artisse app and finding the right perfect influencers for Artisse to be promoted by.

Our target audience consisted predominantly of women aged 18 to 44, residing in regions with a high propensity for app usage, social media engagement and value. This included the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and across Europe. These users are typically active on platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat, where visual content plays a significant role in their daily interactions. 

By understanding the demographics and psychographics of our target audience, we could tailor our marketing strategies to effectively capture their attention and drive engagement.

House of Marketer’s Approach

To tackle the challenge and ensure Artisse stood out, we devised a comprehensive TikTok marketing strategy that would capture attention and drive app instals. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our approach:

Influencer Collaboration

We identified and collaborated with over 30 TikTok influencers (#TeamArtisse), specialising in niches such as fashion, beauty, travel, and lifestyle. These influencers were selected based on their engagement rates, follower demographics, and their ability to create visually appealing content that aligned with Artisse’s brand values.

Our team worked closely with the influencers to ensure they highlighted the app’s unique personalised photography features. The content created by influencers showcased the transformation capabilities of the Artisse AI, emphasising the high level of perfection and attention to detail that users could achieve. By leveraging the authenticity and reach of these influencers, we helped Artisse build trust and credibility among potential users.

Strategic Content Creation

To maximise engagement, we focused on creating a diverse range of content formats, including tutorials, before-and-after transformations, and creative challenges. These content pieces were designed to highlight different features of the Artisse app, providing users with a clear understanding of its capabilities and encouraging them to try it out.

Paid Advertising Campaign

Alongside the organic influencer campaign, we implemented a strategic paid advertising campaign to boost app install and overall revenue. The paid campaign was designed to complement the organic efforts by targeting potential users who had engaged with the influencer content but had not yet downloaded the app. 

By utilising precise targeting options on TikTok and other social media platforms, we were able to reach a broader audience and drive conversions effectively.

Data-Driven Optimization

Throughout the campaign, we continuously monitored performance metrics and made data-driven adjustments to our strategy. This included optimising ad placements, refining targeting criteria, and tweaking content formats based on engagement data. Our iterative approach ensured that we maximised the return on investment and achieved the best possible results for Artisse.

Interactive Campaigns

We launched interactive challenges and contests that encouraged users to share their own Artisse-generated images, creating a ripple effect of organic engagement and brand visibility.

We incentivised users to create and share their own content using the app, which not only provided authentic testimonials but also expanded our reach through user networks.
