The Process

We started by researching social insights and sales data for patterns of behavior. From there, we created a social media ad strategy that would ladder up their goal of increasing sales.

Our research revealed that their customer needed more frequent exposure before making a purchase. So, we began social ads earlier and expected more interaction before closing a sale.

A new modern BTL website, enhanced by our Social Media interaction and ads created the following results.

The Results

• 113% increase in product sold

• 720% increase in web visits

• While sales metrics were achieved, cost per result on Facebook ads decreased 68% from previous measurement timeframe.
