Cree, a market-leading innovator of lighting-class LEDs, LED lighting, and semiconductor products for power and radio frequency (RF) applications, worked with Rocket Fuel to build awareness for its LED lighting products and reliably reach quality traffic across premium publishers and realize superior performance with Rocket Fuel’s Private Marketplace capability.

“Rocket Fuel’s Private Marketplace capability turned out to be a great investment for us,” said David Dykes, Media Director for Baldwin&. “We wanted to improve our display advertising results by driving qualified traffic from pre-identified premium publishers’ sites. Because Rocket Fuel gave us that capability, we were able to efficiently drive users to our client’s site and help contribute to the lowest bounce rate onsite in over six months.”


  • 42.86% improvement in efficiency when analyzing conversion rates in getting Cree consumers to the Buy Now page.
  • Cree was able to reliably reach quality traffic across premium publishers and realize superior performance with Rocket Fuel’s Private Marketplace capability.


For over 150 years, the all-natural, award-winning products by Canadian company Skinfix have treated skin’s most irritating problems. Rocket Fuel Premium Optimization delivered an average click-through rate 7.6x more efficient than non-optimized tactics.

“We used Rocket Fuel’s private marketplace capability for a CPG client’s recent campaigns, and we were highly impressed with the results,” said Cynthia Hang, Digital Ad Operations, Haworth Marketing & Media. “Our goal was to increase traffic to our two online partners, and We used Rocket Fuel’s Premium Optimization, and are thrilled with the results.”
