How ADT consistently hit their Cost-Per-Install goals and optimized their campaigns with PX

About ADT

ADT is USA’s #1 smart home security provider. Combining technology and the human touch, it offers products like smart home devices, security cameras, smoke and flood detectors, and other home security equipment.

Industry: Home Services Location: USA
Company Size: Large (22k Employees) Products Used: PX’s Branded Campaigns


Home Services has typically been an industry with a long sales cycle, so paying lead vendors on a cost-per-lead basis creates a greater risk. From a lead-capturing perspective, a sub-optimized branded landing page results in fewer clicks being converted to leads. Third-party hosted pages create additional compliance risk and increase workload. Furthermore, typically, 35-40% of those who fill out a home security lead form cannot be contacted, either because people are not receiving calls/are not able to reach out to the consumer, or sales team does not reach out immediately because they are already overloaded with leads.

We operate from an optimization mindset

We split-tested the branded landing pages with carefully crafted flows, routed the leads through the PX platform, and applied dynamic pricing. The lead payout rules were based on sourcing, dayparting, soft caps on weekends, and other campaign bidding optimizations, by a dedicated campaign management team.

Turning complexity into simplicity

Both Home & Renter campaigns are built on a single branded form. Lead flow at the back end is designed to route to different call centers. Live lead validation is embedded in the forms to ensure accurate data capturing, e.g., phone number validation. An appointment-setting feature on the lead form helps ADT reach the 35-40% segment of prospects being out of reach earlier.

New season, new campaign

Design and send regular promotional and seasonal email creatives, which also offshoots to organic traffic to their website. A dedicated compliance manager ensures these creatives are Can-Spam Compliant while doing audit reviews on their mailers.

“Working with PX has changed our view on the ability to run a full-scale email program at a Cost per Lead compensation. The ADT email campaigns through PX have created scale, large efficiencies, and innovation through the appointment scheduling flow that really has opened new doors of opportunities for us. We feel that the team of PX is an extension of our team and are looking forward to further scaling.”
