Michael Kors had a goal to expand its audience, drive net-new customers, and increase awareness of its Michael Kors Access smartwatches. The client wanted to design an innovative campaign to narrow in on tech- and social-savvy shoppers. That's where Code3 came in as a Facebook Marketing Partner. The first step was to beta-test a then-new carousel format for ads in Instagram Stories.


Carousel ads allow advertisers a generous amount of real estate to communicate the brand's story and showcase a product. Code3 created a 3-card video carousel ad within Instagram Stories featuring a woman on the go. On-screen messaging was clear, concise, and included a call-to-action that directed users to the Michael Kors website. Ads were targeted to women in the US aged 18 and over. A lookalike audience was also created and leveraged based on the characteristics of current customers. The campaign resulted in the impressive results shown above.
