  18. 18. WISE Case Studies / Applications Examples 18
  19. 19. Separating Products by Brand BACKGROUND ● Footwear / Apparel Retailer ● Goal is to grow revenue with a strict ROAS target ● Products are dependent on seasons ● Brands have different price points, seasons and demand CONCEPT By breaking our top-focus brands into their own campaigns, we’re able to adjust the budgets and ROAS targets according to their season. We can push or pull back on these brands on a more granular level. Additionally, since AOV varies by the brand, we can set lower ROAS targets on higher AOV products to push on these more. 19 RESULTS Revenue
  20. 20. Separating Products by Seasonal Collections BACKGROUND ● OEM (Food & Bev) ● Launches collections based on holidays ● Evergreen products were taking priority over our new collections so visibility was limited on new skus. CONCEPT Because our evergreen products have strong relevance with Google (conversion history, etc), these products were taking priority over our newly launched seasonal skus. By separating out the new skus into their own campaign, we were able to increase traffic and expedite the learning process on these new skus. 20 RESULTS Impressions Clicks +384% +498% Conversions Revenue +1,248% +1,473% ROAS +423%
  21. 21. Separating Products by Seasonal Best Sellers BACKGROUND ● Sells home goods ● Majority of skus are seasonal ● Difficulties with scaling revenue after using manual cpc and tROAS bidding strategies CONCEPT We decided to test putting all of our best sellers into their own Smart Shopping campaign in order to push on these skus. By doing so, we started to see a strong lift visibility, CTR and CVR which led to a lift in revenue while keeping a strong ROAS. 21 RESULTS Impressions Clicks +18% +32% Conversions Revenue +44% +63% ROAS +17%
  22. 22. Segmenting Out Suppressed Skus BACKGROUND ● B2B Retailer ● Goal is to scale revenue ● We wanted to see if we can get volume from non-converting skus. CONCEPT In order to answer the question: “Are these products being suppressed because they’re poor performing? Or are they poor performing because they are suppressed?” We placed all skus with little to no impressions in their own Smart Shopping campaign. After doing so, we started to see volume come through for some of these skus. 22 RESULTS Impressions Clicks +3434% +5960% Conversions Revenue +1981% +378%
