TRAVEL ECOMMERCE CASE STUDY

How we increased revenue by 455% in just 5 months.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

ParkingMyCar is an Italian startup with the mission of making the parking experience easy, safe, and convenient for everyone. From their travel e-commerce, you can book online on 220+ different parking within 23 airports and 16 ports.

CHALLENGE

The main goal for ParkingMyCar was to scale performance and volumes while maintaining a profitable Return On Ad Spend (ROAS) on the Google Ads channel targeting the Italian market. The secondary objective was to build the infrastructure and be ready for the peak season in summer.

SOLUTION

Via ongoing consulting with their marketing team, we helped restructure the account and implement several optimization strategies:

  1. Launch of dynamic search ads: to expand traffic to all available products and destinations in a scalable and automated way.
  2. Review of existing campaigns: to improve broad and exact match type themed keywords performance and remove redundant or inefficient ones.
  3. Budget and bid enhancement: to leverage machine learning bidding strategies towards a return on ad spend goal.
  4. Account growth: to expand with the addition of new campaigns, Google search partners, and Microsoft ads account setup and launch.

RESULTS

In just five months from December to April, we scaled account revenue and spending by 455% while keeping the target ROAS. Even when our work was over, the account continued to grow and hit a 2000% year-over-year increase in revenue in June.

FEED-BASED DYNAMIC SEARCH ADS CASE STUDY

How we doubled sales at improved ROAS in just 3 months for a digital products eCommerce store.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

VisureItalia is one of the leading Italian eCommerce in the digital governmental certificates industry. Some products need a special review from the Office (higher price, lower margin). Others can be bought directly from the website (higher margin, lower price).

CHALLENGE

When it comes to digital products, Google Shopping is not an option. Performance was stagnant. Even if the account was at a decent level of sales, no initiatives were taken to scale performance and grow revenue at a similar return on ad spend (ROAS).

SOLUTION

The existing search campaign structure was divided into thematic areas, including products with different delivery times and prices within the same campaign. We replaced the overall search campaign with a more advanced structure made of Dynamic Search Ads (DSA) using page feeds. We segmented products by price range and dynamically highlighted key product features and benefits, such as delivery times and prices in the ad copy, using the third-party tool DataFeedWatch.

RESULTS

We scaled the account in just 3 months: ROAS grew by 69%, thanks to higher investments (+15%) and higher revenue (+96%). DSA helped us to increase the website traffic by 47% at 18% lower cost-per-click while generating a higher number of conversions at a 20% higher average order value.

DIGITAL ADVERTISING IN ITALY: B2B CASE STUDY

How we increased sales by 4 digits for a B2B eCommerce advertising on Google Ads and Microsoft Ads.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

Rochester Electronics is the world’s largest continuous source of semiconductors authorized by over 70 leading manufacturers, encompassing more than 200,000 part numbers.

CHALLENGE

The client needed an international PPC agency to improve the quality of the traffic coming from Google Ads B2B campaigns targeting the Italian market. The end goal was to increase the conversion rate (CVR) and decrease the cost per action (CPA).

SOLUTION

Initially, we started by cutting account inefficiencies: we paused underperforming campaigns and reviewed the negative keywords strategy to avoid customer mismatch and wasted ad spend. Then we used the product’s database and a third-party tool to create a hyper-granular Single Keyword Ad Group (SKAG) campaign structure, to significantly increase the click-through rate (CTR) and consequently the conversion rate (CVR).

RESULTS

It was a blasting +2000% in revenue YoY! With higher qualified traffic and super relevant ad copies, we were able to bring a massive +700% increase in eCommerce transactions for the Italian market. This led us to be the best-performing agency worldwide for the client.

FEED-DRIVEN CAMPAIGN CASE STUDY

How we optimized product feed and created a dynamic Search campaign using Feed-Driven Text Ads to maximize traffic and increase conversions.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

Fitprime, an Italian-based startup that runs an online gym membership marketplace for sports centers, offers a complex product catalog of 2,000+ products in over 100 locations.

CHALLENGE

The client was starting out with a new Google Ads account, so there was little historical data to refer to when setting up campaigns. As a gym membership marketplace, this client wasn’t selling physical items. This means selling on Google Shopping wasn’t possible since the platform doesn’t allow businesses to advertise services. The main objective was to create a scalable and granular account structure.

SOLUTION

We decided to use the DataFeedWatch Feed-Driven Text Ads solution to optimize the client’s feeds and create hyper-granular Search campaigns. Feed-Driven Text Ads allowed us to automatically create thousands of keywords and dynamic Google Search ads based on the client’s product feed.

RESULTS

With the new structure, the campaigns grew by 25% in traffic with 32% higher session duration. Single Product Ad Group structured campaigns allowed for location and product-level reporting. We were able to maximize traffic to the client’s site and increase conversions for the top-performing products and locations. We also scaled our client’s online campaigns while using all products and locations during the busy season.

FASHION ECOMMERCE CRO CASE STUDY

How we leveraged user behavior and customer feedback to double the website conversion rate.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

SEASE is an Italian outdoor fashion brand offering a contemporary wardrobe for passion-driven lifestyles.

CHALLENGE

Increase the eCommerce conversion rate on luxury price tag products and improve the add-to-cart rate.

SOLUTION

We set up the traffic monitoring infrastructure – heatmaps, session recordings, and surveys – to identify patterns among users leaving the checkout page without making a purchase and those visiting the product page without adding products to the shopping cart.

We discovered two types of barriers:

  1. Product perceived value, which was directly related to a low add-to-cart rate
  2. UX gaps that were mostly connected with the checkout process

Knowing this allowed us to support the client’s teams with website optimization solutions, intervene on both aspects, and accurately measure before/after results.

RESULTS

We doubled the overall website conversion rate just one month after implementing our suggested optimization techniques. A similar uptrend continued during the following months, hitting an overall +288% conversion rate after seven months.
Thanks to session recordings analysis, we also resolved an ongoing issue that hindered users from completing orders for weeks without the client or dev even noticing it.

EDUCATION & RECRUITING CASE STUDY

How we leveraged the Google Search Partner and Display Network to increase lead volumes and cut CPA

ABOUT THE CLIENT

Linguedo is a German startup that solves inequalities in the European job market through language and education.

CHALLENGE

The main goal was to attract Italian and Spanish nurses willing to relocate and work in renowned German hospitals. The client struggled to bring conversions at target CPA due to the very high competition and an overall low conversion rate.

SOLUTION

Using our proven methodology, we first worked at the account structure, which showed many inefficient areas. Then, we leveraged the search partner network with a unique approach (we wrote more about it here). Finally, with Display Advertising targeting specific job listing websites and pre-qualifying display ads, we reached an even better performance than search in terms of CPA.

RESULTS

We came very close to the same number of conversions as per Google Search on the Search Partner network, with 68% lower CPA. Overall, we managed to increase lead volumes by 30% with 36% lower CPA.

SERVICES

Search engine competition for this industry is fierce, and the customer journey requires multiple touchpoints. The client hired us to make the most out of their marketing investments from a customer acquisition and lead quality standpoints.

SOLUTION

We took care of the Google and Microsoft advertising accounts expansion. We identified thousands of new keywords and target audiences with a “test and learn” approach by integrating the Salesforce CRM on Analytics and sales team insights.

RESULTS

Weekly leads increased from 1.000 to over 1.600 in less than a year, with cost per acquisition decreased by 15%. Thanks to an integrated analysis of users’ queries on Google Ads and lead quality signals, we opened an untapped market, promoting the design and implementation of a new B2C product for candidates.
