SEO authority on very competitive products

To speed up the content creation process and implement recommendations on the site.

SOLUTION

Our focus has mainly been on brand optimisation and collection page optimisation.

Highly competitive market - how to drive growth

Before we took over they had a high reliance on promotions (a lot of spend during promotional periods at lower AOV). They also had a large product offering and brands they have in stock which they are competing with the brands and other retailers.

SOLUTION

We rolled out a combination of always on and promotion and by improving always on ROAS we were able to ramp up during full price periods which obviously helps overall ROAS and profitability. New campaign structure helped to focus on most profitable brands and products and also enabled us to be flexible based on their stocks, seasonality and product performance. For social Our audience setup considers all stages in the funnel big learning and performance improvement was audience and gender specific messaging.
