CAMPAIGN PERIOD: Oct 31st to Dec 12th 2022
WebSavvy is amazing to partner with. No challenge is too big.
Their digital marketing expertise is incredible and they’re genuinely passionate about helping our business grow.
Because AI can get stuck in a rut, some of Swimwear Galore’s products were not being seen by potential customers. The machine kept going back to products it knew & ‘trusted’ to sell well, ignoring ~70% of the sizable range.
We knew there was a great opportunity to generate incremental revenue by increasing the performance of these ‘unseen’ (aka zombie) products. So we got to work!
Using platform data we quickly identified products with no spend in the recent past.
We put those Product IDs into a Google Sheet, added a 2nd column with the ‘zombie’ tag and fed that into Google Merchant Centre as a supplemental feed.
Instantly, this added the ‘zombie’ tag as a custom label to all of those products. Then we created a new PMax campaign just for those products and excluded them from the existing campaigns.
We gave the machine an easy goal to get started, setting the ROAS target ~20% lower than the existing campaigns. It hit that target within a week, at which point we steadily increased the target until it was as high as the other campaigns.
This was all new spend and new revenue. It ended up about 15% additional spend at a ROAS slightly better than the existing campaigns.
So effectively, a 15% increase in profitable revenue, selling products that otherwise weren’t selling. A big win all round!
