In light of growing online competition, store managers realized that they needed to take professional action to make their products visible for potential customers.
METAL – GUM's main advertising goals were to promote products on offer, increase valuable website traffic, and boost sales. EACTIVE launched a Shopping ads campaign, which resulted in an increase of e-commerce conversion rates on METAL – GUM's website by 80.65%. In this case, a purchase was regarded as a conversion.
An analysis of product and category performance revealed that the highest number of conversions was generated by products from the category of modern door canopies, which also achieved the best CTR. Other products were excluded from the campaign so that rates could be raised for items with the highest number of conversions and clicks in order to enhance their potential.
"The Shopping ads campaign is meeting METAL – GUM's needs perfectly, helping ensure the high visibility of our products in the search engine thanks to the ad format and its elements, such as photos and prices" says Sławomir Węgliński, Google Ads Team Coordinator at EACTIVE.
"The possibility of continuously optimizing the campaign allows us to target ads precisely at people who are interested in the company's offer, respond to changes in the industry, and improve the campaign for its duration on an ongoing basis."
