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.
