We came in just a few days before Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2020, while the brand was actively advertising with another agency whose contract was finishing in December.
There were 2 goals:
- Boost Sales by implementing a strategy specific to Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2020 & Pre/Christmas & New Year’s Campaigns
- Test advertising in the US market
Not great results, in fact barely breaking even. So where was the issue?
Moving on to the CA market, we created Christmas and Winter themed ads with a sense of real urgency, adding a ‘order before 15th Dec’ as the last day for timely Christmas delivery.
This campaign ran from 3rd until 15th Dec and with $460.48 ad spend, we saw a return of $3,642.47 (7.91 ROAS).
Seeing urgency drive success, we replicated the strategy after 15th Dec, converting our ‘Christmas Collection’ into a ‘Winter Collection’ and creating new campaigns urging to order before the festive scents are gone.
In addition to running Christmas/Winter campaigns with urgency, we have created a campaign for a special ‘Winter Box’ product, which contained a bundle of candles worth $100 for $75. The Winter Box had a surprise element to it, with 3 candles being known and 3 being a surprise! This campaign has done exceedingly well with $44.42 in ad spend we saw a return of $1,292,14 in the first week (29.09 ROAS).
Here’s a couple of the creatives that were used:
Using $1,805.70 in budget from 1st Dec to 31st Dec we have generated $17,406.47 in revenue with a ROAS of 9.64. That’s 9.6x ROI, using a combination of prospecting and dynamic product catalogue retargeting campaigns.
📈 On the Horizon:
We see a lot of opportunity for this brand in different areas which we plan to implement in the following months:
- Klaviyo email marketing
- Conversion Rate Optimization for both CA and US site
- Increase AOV & Customer Lifetime Value by implementing cross-sell/upsell techniques
- Advertise new fun products as people will spend more time at home: i.e. DIY Candle Kit
- Addition of digital Referral Programs
- Optimization of Customer Loyalty Programs
- Advertising timely seasonal offers/sales
