Teknosa began by using the Maximise Clicks bid strategy, allowing them to effectively use their budgets to grow the volume of website visitors. Then, online marketing team decided to shift the focus to increasing revenues.

By collaborating with their agency Mediacom, Teknosa’s team started using the Target Return on Ad Spend bid strategy (Target ROAS) for their Dynamic Search Ad campaigns. Although these campaign types don’t use keyword targeting but instead bring in traffic from coarser grained categories, the Target ROAS machine learning algorithm always tailors bids for each and every auction that Teknosa participates in.

The setup was straightforward, only requiring the team to change the bid strategies in the respective campaigns and set their desired ROI goals. Target ROAS quickly delivered impressive performance. For Dynamic Search Ads, the return on ad spend improved by 168%, the conversion rate increased by 25% and revenue grew by 27%.
