"We partnered with Reddit and our agencies to leverage user data and insights to tailor our creative messaging and speak to consumers in ways that are authentic on the platform—human voices, not corporate ones. By showing up in a native way, we saw incredible success with engagement, CTR’s and other top performance metrics.
