GOOGLE SHOPPING, SEO AND DYNAMIC REMARKETING

Proshop

Denmark's largest electronics webshop develops its business with focused, international online marketing

Proshop is one of Denmark's largest webshops with an annual turnover of over one billion Danish kroner. 3,000 customers from six different countries shop at Proshop's webshops – every single day.

The company is an online retailer of electronics for B2B and B2C and has 140 employees. Novicell has been Proshop's digital partner for over 20 years. 

Margins move the business

Competition in the electronics market is higher than ever. Earnings margins are under constant pressure, and retailers only earn a few dollars a year for every order sent off. It is therefore crucial that the entire 'digital machine room' is exceptionally efficient.

As the first step in customer travel, digital marketing plays an important role. Advertising and visibility must be continuously optimised to deliver traffic and sales.

The co-operation includes

Google
Shopping

Product-specific search ads based on Google Shopping feed. Increased visibility delivers higher conversion rates.

Dynamic remarketing

Targeted efforts to draw in previous visitors by exposing them to products they have previously shown interest in. And it works!

Facebook Dynamic Ads

Proshop’s products are promoted to people who have shown an interest on the webshop or elsewhere online.

Search Engine Optimisation

The SEO effort covers optimising category pages, products, technical SEO, link building and training of internal employees.

SEO efforts bore fruit

Proshop wanted more online visibility. Based on data and insight from the current business and potential in the market, Novicell and Proshop have, since 2017, focused on search engine optimisation (SEO). The electronics shop had significant potential for improvement since there had previously been little focus on SEO. The process started with the low-hanging fruits and worked upwards from there. So far, the close SEO collaboration has produced excellent results. 

Challenge

Keyword organic traffic was too low due to poor search engine rankings.

'Always On' marketing

with automated digital campaigns

An automated campaign setup

With 130,000+ products across many different categories, Proshop requires an automated setup since they can’t refine and edit texts on each product. 

The workaround? Novicell receives a data feed from Proshop, which is enriched with descriptive text and other metadata in the tool DataFeedWatch. The optimised product data is then passed on to the various data feeds that exhibit the products. For example, to Google Merchant Center, which feeds Google Shopping.

Product data is enriched with:

  • Titles
  • Categories
  • Availability
  • Product prioritisation and product groups with good margin / coverage

Proshop thus has a large ‘always on’ campaign setup across a number of channels and countries via the automated data enrichment and feeds that provide updated data to the various sales channels.

The customer must be a good business – from the first visit

Proshop is first and foremost a good merchant, and marketing initiatives must quickly have a direct positive return. It doesn’t make sense to pay £60 in a conversion price for an expensive   smartphone if earnings only make up £10. 

The focus is therefore not only on ‘standard’ metrics, such as CTR (click through rate), clicks, revenue, CPC (cost per click) and ROAS (return on ad spend).

In collaboration with Proshop, Novicell has, among other things, looked at overall coverage and profit, which means that real profit and ROI can be calculated on the individual focus areas. Since there is a different level of coverage for each country and product group, it provides a much more accurate picture of the real business impact than revenue and overall ROAS.

Google Ads results

Focus on Google Ads, Google Shopping, and Dynamic Remarketing delivers clear results:

114%

increase in ROAS

33%

drop in CPC

117%

increase in online revenue

160%

increase in profit from Google Ads

in the first half of 2018 (compared to 2017)

International online marketing

The roll-out takes place in step with Proshop's general growth in various countries – and is always based on where there has been potential for good business. Novicell's marketing consultants now handle the following markets for Proshop:

Norway
