Before hiring Solutions 8, this client was facing several obstacles in their digital marketing efforts. They struggled with recognizing and nurturing potential leads, enhancing their conversion rates, and enhancing overall campaign performance.
After taking a closer look at their campaigns, we found several underlying factors contributing to these challenges:
- The client had an overwhelming number of campaigns, around 30, and each of these campaigns had a substantial number of ads, ranging from 20 to 30 per day.
- Despite this extensive outreach, the number of clicks generated per campaign was relatively low, which made it difficult for the machine learning algorithm to analyze the data effectively and provide valuable insights.
- Their Performance Max campaign only had a single asset group, which was insufficient for determining which audience was working best.
The client used TROAS and TCPA extensively in the hope of achieving consistency, but these restricted bidding strategies tend to become self-defeating when there is insufficient data to support them or when the search volume is too low. Instead, here’s what we did:
- We simplified the account to eliminate unnecessary campaigns, adopted a more unified model, and created multiple asset groups to analyze the performance of different categories and targeting options
- We focused on teaching, explaining, attending weekly meetings, and regularly monitoring the account
We’ve delivered 13X instead of the expected 8X during the off-season. Despite a season of low activity, the account has maintained impressive performance, with sales minimally affected and sustainable growth.
