Pharma Company Upneeq Gets 82% More Youtube Clicks Than The Average Video Engagement Campaign


Upneeq, the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for treating Acquired Ptosis, partnered with Sightly to: 

  1. Increase overall brand awareness and 
  2. Drive consumers to its site to educate them about how to treat the condition with their eye solution.  

The brand decided to target a couple key benchmarks:. 

  • Brand awareness, via a view rate KPI against the Sightly in-stream benchmark of 40%, and
  •  Driving consumers to the Upneeq website, via a clickthrough rate (CTR) KPI against the Sightly CTR benchmark of 0.11%.


We ran targeted YouTube skippable In-stream video ads for Upneeq’s core audience that prompted viewers to click through to its website to learn more about its eye drops for treating Acquired Ptosis.

  • CTR of 0.20%, which surpassed the Sightly benchmark of 0.11% by 82%, indicating that potential consumers engaged with messaging and were willing to click to the homepage for further education.

Overall, the campaign’s strong performance led to incremental budgets and campaign extensions, allowing Sightly to: 

  • Reach even more of Upneeq’s niche target audience,

A CPG Personal care brand wanted to reach multicultural consumers with brand messaging, in order to make their name top of mind for their target consumers on YouTube. 

The campaign aimed to reach the ideal multicultural consumers, so effective tactics were implemented and measured via brand lift study to identify lift in brand awareness among that target audience.


Sightly implemented a strategic combination of skippable and non-skippable units. Strategic implementation was to be guided by the brand’s Brand Mentality™, Sightly’s proprietary approach for implementing a brand’s contextual preferences, reactions to scenarios, desired outcomes, and more.

  1. Created an extensive AA Influencer channel list of beauty, fashion and entertainment influencers that resonate with the target AA .
  2. In addition, created an extensive channel list targeted to Latina audiences on YouTube, to create a hyper relevant targeting base.
  3. Identified moments in real-time that represented the brand’s core values via the Brand Mentality™ profile. This included content around Black History Month and Women’s History Month.

Extensive testing and hyper-relevant optimizations based on Brand Mentality resulted in a statistically significant brand lift, with 103K lifted users for awareness (+2.5% relative lift).

Beyond typical media measurement, the campaign also provided learnings about meaningful cultural moments that mattered and the influencers that resonated most with their audience. Top influencers included Cardi B, Saria Raine and Lil Uzi Vert.

The insights were twofold:

  1. There is an abundance of data that can be used to inform general business goals, targeting tactics, creative, and more.
  2. We learned more about the contextual relevance of influential content creators in the AA community.
