INCREASING ECOMMERCE REVENUE BY TEN TIMES – A CASE STUDY

Digital Marketing Service for Gofiltr by BM Consulting

INCREASING ECOMMERCE REVENUE BY TEN TIMES - A CASE STUDY

About The Client

GoFiltr is a California based company that was developed with the intention of offering an ultimate hydration experience to the people. The founding members of this company were aware of the fact that most of the bottled alkaline water was prepared without any scientific knowledge of alkaline water and its effects on the human body.

GoFiltr’s range of alkaline infusers helps you to prepare all-natural, anti-oxidant, mineral alkaline water with electrolytes in minutes. GoFiltr Alkaline is compatible with most reusable water bottles and lasts very long as you can just refill the bottle instead of buying a new one from the market. GoFiltr Alkaline is an ideal way to infuse your water with vital minerals and electrolytes and increase its pH up to 9.5 in minutes.

Why Did The Client Choose Us?

In the initial stages, GoFiltr had to compete against well-established competitors in the market who sold bottled alkaline water. The client was advertising the product through shopping ads but failed to reach the expected sales figure due to high ACoS.

BM Consulting took up this challenge and designed strategies to bring down the ACoS and thereby improve the performance of the shopping ads. BM Consulting started working with them from December 2019 and since then the client’s sales charts have seen an upward trend.

Past Data Research Proved To Be Helpful

The client had already been running Shopping Ads, which meant we had a lot of data to explore and study in order to come up with new strategies. Our team spent a good amount of time in studying this historical data which later helped us to experiment with different bidding strategies.

The below graph offers a glimpse of the client’s performance before they started working with us. As you can see, the cost was very high ($2874.07) as compared to the revenue generated ($1331.22) in the period from Dec 2018 to March 2019.

Past Data Research

Implemented Multiple Strategies To Find The Most Productive One

The conversion rate was very low as compared to the advertisement cost when we started working with GoFiltr, hence we needed to take immediate measures to improve overall account performance in the long run. Our team performed detailed research of the target demographic in order to understand their buying patterns and perform keyword research. We tried multiple Google Ads Bidding Strategies that allowed us to zero in on the one that gave great results.

During the period between Dec 19 to Mar 2020, we succeeded in bringing down the ACoS from 215.90% to 30% and increased the ROAS by 10X. We did this by utilizing a manual bidding strategy and introducing a Smart Shopping campaign. We also created a Brand Search Campaign to push sales further.

Strategies for Adwords

It is clearly seen from the above graph that sales increased during the period from Dec 2019 to Mar 2020. In this period, the total revenue generated was $13390 against a cost of $4016.87.

During the campaign, we continued to monitor and optimize the campaigns, created new campaign types and kept checking on negative keywords to control irrelevant traffic and prevent wasted spend. Google Smart Shopping also gave us an opportunity to reach a larger audience and convert them into potential customers.

We Delivered Exceptional Performance Even During The Pandemic

The client decided to limit the daily budget from April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this constraint, we had to pause some campaigns which were costing more, while in shopping campaigns we disabled a few low-performing products. In spite of such conditions, the remaining campaigns performed exceptionally well and delivered great results, which can be seen from the graph below.

Adwords Performance During The Pandemic
Before:
Date Range – Apr 2019 – Aug 31 2019
Cost – $3339.05
Revenue – $3662.13

Adwords Performance During The Pandemic
After:
Date Range – Apr 2020 – Aug 31 2020
Cost – $1678.64
Revenue – $9795.14

A CASE STUDY OF GOOGLE ADVERTISING FOR GLOBAL BRAND OF DOG ONESIES (USA, CANADA)

dog onesies case study

BM Consulting developed a cost-efficient approach to maximize sales and brought down the cost/conversion by a healthy margin as compared to the client’s performance in 2019.

Our efforts resulted in

– bringing down the cost/conversion rate by 7.24%
– increase in conversion rate by 5.65%.

About Shed Defender

Shed Defender is a global brand for dog onesies in the USA, Canada and other parts of the world. Their mission is to keep creating products that promote a happy and healthy lifestyle for dogs and strengthen the bond between people and their pets.

Shed Defender always believes in making a difference, which is why their dog onesies are stitched from a fabric that is made from recycled plastic water bottles. This eco-friendly fabric is breathable, durable and stretchy which helps to keep the dog comfortable at all times.

Shed Defender products have helped to reduce dog anxiety and even helped with different medical issues so much so that they have proven to be an ideal alternative to the medical cone. Shed Defender products enable the owners to spend quality time with their dogs and form an everlasting connection with them.

Why did they choose us?

In the initial years, Shed Defender was the only brand that sold dog onesies in the American market. However, as the product gained popularity among the masses, many other competitors emerged which led to a negative effect on their sales. Shed Defender’s on-page ad position began decreasing and higher competition for search terms led to an increased expense against a poor return on investment.

With the help of systematically designed campaigns that targeted specific keywords and products, BM Consulting was able to increase the client’s brand awareness and click-through rate along with a decrease in the CPC.

Case Study Adwords

We started working with Shed Defender from the month of April 2020. The dotted lines represent the time frame from April to August for the year 2020 while the bold lines represent the same time frame for the year 2019.

A Streamlined Approach added More Sales at Fewer Costs!

We rebuilt the client’s AdWords account from the ground up, splitting it into meaningful campaigns that targeted specific demographics and interests (excluding non-performing locations, focusing more on location which is more likely to provide better ROI). As a result, Ad engagement began increasing which lowered the cost-per-click for the client’s Ads.

An in-depth product analysis helped us to target locations and products that gave better ROI in order to maximize sales. This approach not only ensured a rise in sales but also reduced unwanted spending on standard shopping campaigns.

A “Tried and Tested” Approach increased reach and helped in driving product sales!

Shed Defender had its own brand campaign from the beginning, but BM Consulting understood the need to refine it and improve its conversion rate. In order to reduce unnecessary spending, we revised our strategies to focus on areas that required greater attention to bring in sales at reduced spend. Daily segregation of negative keywords also assisted in reducing the unnecessary spend.

Relevant Ads Increased The Click-Through Rate

We created non-brand search campaigns with maximum conversion bidding at a low budget that targeted only 6 locations to reduce the competition. A responsive search ad within this non-brand campaign helped us give better ad impressions as we focused on all keywords in the 10 headings which are likely to perform well. By making the Ads relate more to specific keywords and only a few locations targeted, the click-through rate started improving immediately.

Google Ads Case Study

As seen in the above graph, the cost/conversion rate decreased from April 2020 to August 2020 as compared to the same time frame in the previous year.

Small steps that India is taking towards Atmanirbhar Bharat

Aatmanirbhar Bharat

The year 2020 will be etched onto the human minds for generations to come. This year will be remembered because of a single microorganism that wreaked havoc in the entire world and brought it to its knees. The coronavirus or the COVID-19 virus not only took the lives of millions across the world but also brought the economy to a halt. Drastic measures were taken by countries across the globe and economic packages were issued to bring the economy back on track and India was no exception to it.

Atmanirbhar Bharat 1

On May 12th, 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the citizens of India to concentrate on making the country “Atmanirbhar” or self-reliant. The idea of Atmanirbhar Bharat will not only focus on reviving the Indian economy post this pandemic but will also set the base for India’s domination in the world economy in the 21st century.

Atmanirbhar Bharat 2

During all these years, the idea of the “Make In India” initiative was never underlined as strongly as it is being done in the current coronavirus crisis. What led to this sudden change in mentality? The COVID-19 virus originated in China as it reported the first case of the COVID-19 virus in December 2019 after which it slowly started spreading in the entire world. Fast forward to six months later, the Chinese economy is almost back to normalcy while the world is still struggling with the pandemic. This made the world think if China can do it, why not us?

One of the benefits that China had earlier was that many reputed multinational companies had their manufacturing units located in this country. However, the global pandemic made them realize that it is time to move their setup from the Chinese market and settle somewhere else where there are resources to rebuild their empire. India is a country that can make this possible for those companies.

India can definitely create an ecosystem that can woo companies leaving China. India has the manpower and resources required for businesses to thrive and embark on the path of progress. Atmanirbhar Bharat focuses on creating job opportunities for the people of India and inviting global companies to set their base in the country. Promoting local vendors and businesses, educating them, and providing proper skillset to the workers are also some of the key areas the government is looking into in order to ensure the success of this campaign.

The Indian retail sector has already made its mark on the global economy and has proved its potential every time. E-commerce portals like Amazon and Flipkart are already flourishing in the Indian market as the local vendors are ready to grab every opportunity that comes their way. The Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan is aimed at strengthening these local industries that have taken a hit in the global pandemic and get them running like before.

In accordance with this Abhiyaan, the state of Gujarat has pledged to give guarantee-free loans of Rs 1 Lakh at 2% annual interest to the weaker sections of the society and small vendors to empower them in this crisis. Even the youth of the country are creating social media campaigns that promote the idea of “Self-Reliant India” and are urging other youngsters to stop using products made in other countries.

With the above said, it is but obvious that the digital marketing sector is witnessing noteworthy amounts of change too. Website designing is getting more demand as Indian companies look forward to considerable growth. Online selling, both independent and through online marketplaces, is going to be a norm for industries even in the SME sections.

The most important change has been noted in the tendency of online shoppers as they enquire about the manufacturing centres and confirm the “make in India” tag of the products they choose to buy from online marketplaces. Online shoppers have started promoting products made in India by writing reviews about them and referring those products to their friends and relatives. This step is very significant because it is the customer who forms the base of the market and economy. The customer is King and his opinion matters most. When customers shift their priorities to Indian manufacturers, it is evident that the industry will also have to shift. Following the same, it is not surprising that Indian smartphone companies like Lava, Xolo, Micromax, etc have started making smartphones with top-notch features and are selling them at affordable prices to attract the modern crowd.

Atmanirbhar Bharat 3

An eye-opener for the Indians came when the central government was in desperate need of funds to tackle the coronavirus crisis and no foreign company came forward to assist the country. It was the Tata group that pledged Rs 1500 crore, Wipro pledged Rs 1125 crore and Mahindra & Mahindra offered to use its manufacturing units to make ventilators. Such generous donations from these Indian companies made people realize that you cannot rely on foreign companies in times of need. This made them understand that buying a vehicle from Tata rather than Mercedes in the future will not only empower the company but also the country.

Self-sustainable India is the need of the hour. Gone are the days when India used to depend on other nations for its needs. This global COVID-19 crisis has changed the mentality of the Indian people and they have understood the importance of a self-reliant nation. If India does not deviate from the ideology of Atmanirbharta, then there is no force in this world that can stop it from becoming a global power in the years to come.

FUNDAMENTAL GUIDELINES FOR AMAZON HSA

HSA is one example out of the many types of ads that you can run on Amazon in order to boost up your sales. With highlights on your brand, HSA provides other value added benefits such as brand visibility and customer trust.

Headline search ads, abbreviated as HAS, play a vital role in building your brand on Amazon. Have you ever pondered over the Search results page on Amazon and found banner ads specific to a brand featuring products in the same category? Chances are that you have already clicked on it but not heeded on its details. So, let’s look at an example of HSA for better clarity. Below is a portion of the search results page for the search term “microwave oven”.

The section that has been encircled in red is a headline search ad. These types of ads may appear on the top of search results, on the bottom of search results or on the left hand side of the search results.

HSA are used to create brand awareness among Amazon shoppers. Each HSA features only a selected category of products. This process of advertising on Amazon is an easy method to drive repeated purchases from your online store as it maximized visibility and gives a plpatform to shoppers to develop a trust in your brand.

We shall dive in to the essentials of HSA by going through each component:

1.Landing page or Products Listing page:

This is the page to which shoppers are directed to once they click (anywhere except the products displayed) on the HSA. It contains all products in a single category. The first step to HSA campaigns is to create the products listing page. Once you login into seller central, you should access campaign manager and click on headline search ads followed by create campaign. At this point, you may select all your products from a selected category to display on the landing page.

2. Display banner:

The banner is exactly the HSA (shown in the figure above) which is displayed upon triggering of ads through search terms. After creating the landing page, the next step of campaign creation is to create the banner. You have to enter your brand name and a headline. Enter the image of your logo or a specific product to be displayed on the banner. Next you can add three products which will be shown on the banner. Here is a labeled image of a HSA banner creative to help you identify each component.

3. Keyword bid

Once you have added all the components of the banner creative, you have to set a default keyword bid. There are two options for this step – automated bidding or manual bidding. In the manual bidding options, you may select the percentage offset from the default bid for displaying your ads in all other placements other than top of the search results page.

4. Keyword:

The next step will be adding the keywords. You may choose the suggested keywords or add your own keywords manually for all match types (broad, phrase and exact). Amazon suggests that you add at least 50 – 100 keywords.

5. Campaign details:

Finally, you will be required to add the campaign details such as name, duration and budget. After this, your campaign will be reviewed. The review process happens within 72 hours.

GOOGLE SHOPPING – BASICS AND ESSENTIALS

The concept of Google Shopping begun as Froogle in 2002 as introduced by Craig Nevill-Manning. Basically a price comparison service for all-purpose products sought after by the general population, it was distinctive in its method as it used Google’s web crawler to extract product data from vendor websites. The service was promoted as Google Shopping 10 years later and brought changes in its working model. With the advent of Google Shopping, merchants have to pay (through Product Listing Ads) to have their products listed for the service.

Today, Google shopping can be described as an integration of two Google tools – Google Merchant Center and Google AdWords. It functions just as before – to allow users to search and compare prices of products from different vendors. The search results include an image, title, description, business name and other fields to describe the product in a way that exactly suits the buyer audience. Through Google Shopping, your products are displayed on Google, other sites and also mobile interfaces. A simple process that occurs in two major sections allows for smooth enrolment and you are only charged once your product is clicked.

The first step is to create a Google Merchant Center Account. Google Merchant center is a complimentary tool to AdWords where you upload your inventory to permit is availability on other Google tools. Before setting up an account in Merchant center, you need to have a working website that represents your online store as this is where your customers will be redirected. You may use the link: google.com/merchants or set it through Google AdWords by selecting Merchant Center under the Tools section. By default, Google allows one store per merchant center account. You may run multiple stores in one account by contacting Google through a designed process. Each store is given a unique ID by Google which is known as the Merchant identifier. The account set up includes fields such as business location, store name, website and contact details. Before you complete the process, you will be required to verify your website.

Once the Merchant center account is set up, you may now set up the Google Shopping campaign in AdWords. Once you login to your AdWords account, click the campaign drop down menu (in the campaigns tab) and select Shopping. You will be prompted to set up your campaign by giving it a name, selecting your merchant identifier ID, country of sale and locations of target. Once this is done, set up an Adgroup that will contain the product group. This product group will contain all the products that you wish to display. You may set up the bids according to your business insights. Variations can be done in the AdWords settings so that you have multiple product groups with varying bids.

Google Shopping set up is as simple as that! But its benefits are great as they allow you as a vendor and your products to be broadcasted widely to an appropriate set of audience which drives in relevant results for your business.

Why Should You Invest in Paid Google Campaigns?

Back to the fundamentals –  what are Paid Google Campaigns? Let me pause here and give a some simple definitions used in Google for marketing:

Chattels in Paid Campaign:

  • Advertisement
  • List of Search Engines
  • Payment:
    • When ad is clicked(Pay-Per-Click PPC)
    • When ad is displayed (Cost-Per-Impression CPM)

   Paid Search Marketing Process

Source: marketfunction.com

Keyword Research:

Consider a keyword list based on the Company’s product and services which is done by crawling the Company’s website and pick the keywords which have much relevance. After pulling possible keywords from the site, the next step is to cluster them into specific groups. This is where you put yourself in users mind.

Ad Copy Writing:

What matters with ads? Just annoying things for people. The answer is No. There is a fun exercise in creating a provoking ad.  The ad copy usually runs between the title and the display URL. It is just a crackerjack tool not only to describe the Ads destination but also serves as effective for the visitor who might be interested that has bought the ad up.

Landing Page:

The key point to be noted is that the Home Page has actual difference from the Landing Page. It is an independent web page offbeat from the main home page. The Landing Page shouldn’t swamp the visitor with several links. The speed of the landing page loading is a significant point. When a visitor clicks an ad,  he/she should be directed to a particular web page with a catchy overlook and not to be directed to Home Page again.

Campaign Setup:

The basic idea we get is from questioning our self as “what type of Campaign Do I need to create?” Once setup then there are series of questions to be raised in mind as

  • Who are the target audience?
  • Location and languages
  • Bids and Budget

Tracking and Testing:

The final step is to evaluate the Campaign performance. Focus on what to be achieved by this Campaign and search according to the result to be achieved. The landing page performance can be checked for entire account or even the specific ad group. The result is targeted based on the Campaign mission.

Let’s get to the crucial part of the talk

Does investing in Paid Campaign fetch you desired result?

To all appearances it is a big YES. But let me tell you how.

Paid search is like head-to-foot for Targeting. Company target based on the products and services to get the more revenue to business. Target a specific group based on age, interest, location and all available options present to hook the advertiser.

In this fast growing world, everybody wants on hand payoff.  Paid campaign gives an immediate result for the accomplishment of the process.

Wrangle more for the exposure. The Google search page contains enormous amount of data where all data competes for visitor’s scrutiny. With this incredible platform getting a position in first page is achievement and listed more number of times is a big deal coming to the door step.

So, with right intelligence and good patience paid search campaign tied up with organic search could get you more traffic and conversion rate which seems to be lost only with organic search.

  1. Broad Match:- This match type offers ads broad traffic exposure. A customer search term will match if it contains all the keyword terms or their synonyms. The customer search term can contain keywords or synonyms in any order.
  2. Phrase Match:- The customer search term must contain the exact phrase or sequence of words. It is more restrictive than broad match and will generally result in more relevant placements for your ad.
  3. Exact Match:- The customer’s search term must exactly match the keyword in order for the ad to show, and will also match close variations of the exact term. Exact match is the most restrictive match type, but can be more relevant to a customer’s search.
