What was the role of digital within the media mix?
The approach used machine learning to drive sales, enabling the brand to categorise products to capitalise on search intent.
The focus was on optimising three core areas:
Feed logics, and implementing manual overrides, increased the likelihood of triggering relevant search queries
A custom label structure was created, organising products in the feed into bestsellers, non-bestsellers, and by price point. This helped to optimise conversions and gain insights
The team introduced a structure to support brand and generic traffic sources, splitting out traffic streams through campaign priority settings, allocating negative keywords, and segmenting campaigns by cost per click
Being more relevant had a significant, positive impact on results. After one month, the new approach saw the contribution of Shopping Campaigns to the overall revenue mix rise by 16% year over year. Comparing the same period, Shopping ads appeared in 48% more search queries – amounting to 74 million additional searches. The new campaigns achieved a 52% increase in clicks and traffic through to the site.
By improving relevance, the average cost per click for Shopping Campaigns fell by 31%. The team used the cost savings to obtain larger volumes of incremental traffic, without unnecessarily increasing the overall spend; in fact, spend went up by only 4%. The influx of qualified traffic to the site improved both efficiency and profitability. Order volumes went up by 29%, which resulted in a 35% increase in revenue, a 29% increase in return on ad spend, and a 19% drop in cost per acquisition.
