DESIGNER CLOTHING ECOMMERCE CASE STUDY

How we increased revenue from $0 to $35K+/month in 12 months for a designer eCommerce brand.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

The client is a US brand operating in the premium denim industry. They focus on the concept and production of high-quality, made-to-measure jeans through an eco-friendly and sustainable workflow.

CHALLENGE

The client needed to begin advertising through a brand new account. For this reason, there was no previous data available. The main goal was to hit a specific return on ad spend (ROAS) while maximizing exposure. Since the name of the client’s brand was similar to other brand names in different business fields, achieving the main goal was difficult.

SOLUTION

Our first task was the collection of data ceaselessly cleared through our proven methodology and specific activities. This allowed us to focus on identifying the right audience targeted through different campaigns.

While collecting data after the first period, we expanded the account with shopping campaigns, and proper product feed optimization, remarketing, and display campaigns. In this way, we supported the client’s brand awareness activities through the different funnel stages while simultaneously bringing revenue to the desired ROAS goal.

Finally, the recurring launch of new collections and promotions let us refresh the account and constantly find new customers while maintaining relationships with past customers.

RESULTS

After 12 months of management, revenue went from $0 to $35K+ per month, doubling the client’s ROAS goal of $1.5 to $3. In particular, this was done while supporting the activities of brand awareness run by the client through other channels.

DESIGNER JEWELRY ECOMMERCE CASE STUDY

How we managed to go from $0 to $60K/month in sales in just 9 months with continuous account expansion.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

The client is a US Shopify eCommerce specializing in luxury designer jewelry. Inspired by vintage classics, their products are crafted by hand with a modern touch for ladies of all ages.

CHALLENGE

The client wanted to maximize brand awareness activities and push conversions with a specific return on ad spend (ROAS) goal. The brand and Google Ads account were starting from scratch. Therefore, there was no historical data available.

SOLUTION

  1. We started collecting performance data, using our proven methodology to create brand and shopping campaigns from scratch. These activities and the product feed optimization let us maximize the brand’s exposure and sales.
  2. When the volume of data was sufficient, we focused on the performance analysis. As a result, we could make informed decisions and correctly support the account expansion.
  3. To expand the account, we supported the launch of new products, collections and marketing promotions, maximizing the results of the client’s cross-channel strategies.

RESULTS

We achieved $60K/month in revenue, hitting the client’s ROAS goal of $6.5, +1.9K orders, and 45 new monthly customers. General performance exceeded the client’s expectations despite the account being created from scratch.

INTERNATIONAL FASHION ECOMMERCE CASE STUDY

How we leveraged Google local campaigns and multi-country Google shopping for a luxury fashion eCommerce.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

The client is a US-based luxury fashion brand serving clients in more than 20 countries worldwide via an eCommerce channel and physical retail stores. Its catalog counts thousands of products with continuous seasonal updates. The monthly budget allocated for Google Ads PPC is in the $160K – $180K range.

CHALLENGE

The client wanted to drive more traffic to the physical stores in the US market and increase eCommerce sales in the international market. Our main goals were:

  1. Drive selected geo-targeted traffic to the physical stores without compromising the online channel performance.
  2. Expand the brand presence and its current product feed to three additional countries with different currencies, shipping terms, and brand penetration.

SOLUTION

We set up local campaigns with driving directions conversion. These campaigns allow potential customers to discover products and “get directions” to their nearest store after viewing an ad. We implemented the catalog extension to serve the additional markets via a third-party feed management tool. This solution allowed us to set up custom rules that assign specific attributes to the thousands of catalog items according to the market peculiarities. We streamlined the product feed management without losing any possibility of feed optimization at a deep level. This is especially important for our customer’s need to run sale initiatives and seasonal updates frequently.

RESULTS

The local campaigns generated an average of 3000 monthly interactions of users getting directions to physical shops, with a cost per action (CPA) under $3. Within the first few weeks, the campaigns targeting foreign markets with the extended product feed yielded a return on ad spend (ROAS) of 600% and an Impression Share above 95% for the brand keywords.

HAIRCARE ECOMMERCE CASE STUDY

How we leveraged Google Shopping structure to double the impression share of a haircare eCommerce.

ABOUT THE CLIENT

The client is a US-based haircare eCommerce brand using Shopify. Their core product is a patented technology specifically created to restore damaged hair.

CHALLENGE

The client wanted to maximize their impression share on Google Shopping results to consolidate brand awareness while improving conversions and revenue simultaneously.

SOLUTION

We replaced the standard shopping campaign with a more advanced structure made of different shopping campaigns based on users’ queries. This adjustment allowed us to maximize results and segment traffic according to each step of the customer journey. Then we optimized product titles to match high-performing search queries and adjusted the bids and budgets to guarantee the highest ROAS possible.

RESULTS

Compared to the previous period, Search impression share grew by 115%, while impressions increased by 153%. Clicks and conversions were, respectively, 12% and 7% higher while hitting the target ROAS.

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.

GOOGLE SMART SHOPPING CASE STUDY

How we increased revenue and ROAS with advanced Google Smart Shopping product segmentation and feed management

ABOUT THE CLIENT

The client is a fashion eCommerce retailer on Shopify, selling to the US and Canada. With a complex product catalog of 17.000 different items grouped in 10 categories, 80% of the total revenue comes from printed t-shirts. New collections are online every two weeks.

CHALLENGE

The client’s product feed was frequently updated. New t-shirts were printed depending on customers’ demand, so there was no inventory. This meant no best-selling products and no promo on remaining stock, making it difficult to run campaigns on specific products.

SOLUTION

We launched a dedicated Smart Shopping campaign running only on t-shirts, as they have similar performance (AOV, ROAS, CPA), to collect and analyze performance data.

We used external tools (Optmyzr, Google Analytics, Google Trend) to bypass hidden search queries and what made t-shirts so successful. It was not the brand, the color, or the material. It was the product size. In fact, 70% of the revenue was coming from 20% of the sizes.

With the help of the feed management tool Data Feed Watch, we grouped t-shirts based on size and excluded poor-performing t-shirts from the campaigns. In this way, we could maximize budget and returns on the most profitable categories and best-selling sizes. Also, newly added products would automatically land in the optimized campaign.

RESULTS

We realized size matters 🙂 Campaign revenue was massive in the first month compared to the previous period, with a 230% increase, and ROAS improved by 26%. Overall website revenue benefited as well, with selected t-shirt sizes sales improved by 88%.

SERVICES

PPC MANAGEMENT: Google Shopping, Product Feed Management

We are quite impressed with Midsummer Team’s catalog and performance analysis. We loved the idea of a different approach, and these sizes were definitely the most important and purchased, thus a good indicator of potential sell-through.
