Posted by Fri,Mar 25, 2011 @ 10:00 AM


Orabrush, a company that makes a breath-freshening tongue cleaner of the same name, had limited success with marketing through retailers, infomercials and other outlets.
From Adam Sutton at MarketingSherpa comes a look at how Orabrush created a successful marketing strategy built around their YouTube page.

Orabrush created a landing page around an independent YouTube video titled "How to tell if you have bad breath." This tripled their conversion rate. Inspired, Orabrush created their own "bad breath" video that has since received over 13 million views. The company's YouTube page is now their inbound marketing hub, and represents 80% of their marketing.

Results:
  • 35+ million YouTube channel views
  • 116,000+ YouTube subscribers
