Our strong relationship with the client and understanding of their business and products has meant we have continued to grow their online revenue whist maintaining their ROI targets.
What we did
We started by analysing their existing campaign data. It became clear that they needed a very bespoke solution to achieve their goals. Pond supplies has a very different season to aquarium supplies and due to brand revenue containing both pond and aquarium sales there was a lack of transparency in how each was performing.
So, we separated these out into multiple AdWords accounts to separate the results clearly. Having the accounts structured like this has given SwellUK much better visibility on performance of each category and has helped them focus on certain product sets.
Then, we rebuilt all their Shopping activity in line with our best practices and assisted with Shopping feed optimisation. Understanding the performance of each device (e.g. mobile, tablet, desktop) was key in developing a successful optimisation strategy.
Next, we built custom reports in Google Analytics to split brand revenue into pond and aquarium sales which allowed for an accurate ROI to be assigned to each category.
On a day-to-day basis we perform regular updates to their Google Shopping feed and Google Adwords accounts including updating shopping feed and pricing/seasonal offers, bid adjustments dealing with Google shopping feed queries, regular weekly reporting and much more.
