    iOS 14.5 hit Tanner’s Alaskan Seafood hard. Extremely hard.

    Paid ads through Facebook/Meta and Google had always been their main customer acquisition channel, but in the spring of 2022 the companies digital ads were struggling to achieve even a 1.0 ROAS. 

    Jason and Rory Tanner built their business on the belief that if you are willing to work harder than everyone else, and stayed committed to quality, you’ll come out on top. These beliefs have been the key to the family run business’ success. 

    When it comes to digital marketing, though, they found you also have to work smarter. 

    Competition for online advertising space has increased significantly since the start of the pandemic, and the impact of iOS 14.5 was almost immediate. 

    The Tanner’s team needed a solution — fast.

600% Increase in ROAS on Retargeting Ads
300% Increase in ROAS on Prospecting Ads


    When Tanner’s Alaskan Seafood first started using RAEK it was to grow their email list. Growing their email marketing channel, which gave them the ability to contact their customers regardless of changes on advertising platforms, became a top priority. 

    After a bit of research, the company learned the first-party data collected by RAEK could also be used to improve their paid advertising performance. 

    “The lift in ROAS was almost immediate after we added our first-party data to our advertising audiences.”
