Ritual Vitamins

Driving brand lift up 85% Out-of-Home ads

The goal.

Ritual was founded on the belief that better health begins with better ingredients. Their “Not a Miracle” campaign centers on a core message: when it comes to taking care of your health, commitment is essential.

It’s no surprise then, that Ritual took this approach to their Out-of-Home media buys. The brand wanted to prove the ROI of their OOH spends, and see the results backed by real science. Specifically, acquiring new customers and quantifying the perception of the brand were imperative to the campaign.

Ritual needed to talk with consumers directly. Only one Out-of-Home research provider could meet their request. MFour was chosen for their unique OOH validated Brand Lift Methodology. Leveraging MFour’s award-winning Surveys on the Go® app, participants were surveyed pre-flight, and compared to consumers exposed in-flight. The result? An 85% increase in brand awareness and a 70% likeability tied directly to the OOH campaign.


We saw an 85% lift in brand awareness using Out-of-Home ads; measured by MFour. As a result of these campaign findings, Ritual has since invested in OOH buys in Los Angeles and across New York City.
