Manage At Home weren’t sure where their sales were coming from. They knew they were getting orders from telephone, printed leaflets, newspaper advertising as well as digital channels including referral traffic, organic traffic and indeed misattribution not accurately attributing phone orders to the PPC campaigns.
Manage At Home predominantly serves a technophobic market and wanted to devise a digital strategy that would successfully engage their audience. They have a wide variety of products, making them susceptible to large amounts of competition, and therefore required a comprehensive solution to secure their ambitious digital growth targets.
How we achieved the goals
We began by improving the user experience of the website and provided solutions which would address their core audience’s pain-points. One such solution was improving the prominence of the company’s freephone payment option. Meanwhile, our SEO team implemented technical changes and revised the websites content to bolster organic rankings for key terms. These efforts secured a substantial base-level increase in new visitors, converting at a higher rate.
Whilst growth was a result of paid campaigns, growth is never due to just one channel and we were doing work on UX and SEO.
How we tracked success
Having laid the foundations, our Paid Media team consulted with key client stakeholders to identify and accurately measure all “routes to purchase” via Manage At Home’s website. This exercise led to the implementation of call tracking software, that allowed us to associate revenues from over-the-phone orders with website sessions. Our team was then able to structure shopping ad campaigns, based on bottom-line product-performance. The combination of product performance data and Google’s smart bidding led to consistent, sustainable, profitable growth.
