Chaco making a splash on TikTok

Chaco fit for adventure bus

The Challenge

To show consumers how Chaco's products are made, the brand renovated and retrofitted a school bus to be a mobile, custom design and repair center. The “Fit for Adventure” tour traveled the country, stopping in cities and at retailers to take custom orders and repair sandals so customers could continue wearing their beloved Chacos.

The Solution

Backbone deployed a paid advertising campaign to promote the tour, running across paid social platforms, with TikTok showing especially strong results. Targeting the 18-34 age group, this platform made the campaign fun and engaging both for consumers and the brand.

The Backbone team geo-targeted specific cities such as Denver, Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville and others to run video ads encouraging people to bring their old Chacos for repairs or create a new, fun, custom products that will last a lifetime.

The Results

TikTok saw a strong CPM (nearly half as much at Meta) and more impressions compared to Meta.

Word-of-mouth feedback proved that people visiting the Fit for Adventure bus saw the ads on TikTok and were influenced to participate.
