Google Ads success story
During the setup, the team established campaign goals, defined product groups, set bids, and identified negative keywords. From that point forward, Office Depot relinquished manual control of the campaign, minimising their previous dependence on staff availability and business hours.
The new campaign requires less maintenance than before, which gives the team more time to devote to areas such as their mobile and audience strategy. Key metrics have improved too.
- Increased revenue by 33%
- Gained 45% more impressions
- Reduced costs by 31%
- Improved return on ad spend by 201 percentage points
- Time previously spent on manual bidding now goes into strategy development
