An outsourced search engine marketing campaign brings festive joy to online retail business ChristmastimeUK. Managing Director, Alfred Rose is jubilant about the ROI (Return on Investment) from PPC (Pay Per Click) and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) achieved by leading UK SEM Neutralize.
Within two months of taking over the search engine marketing activity for ChristmastimeUK (http://www.christmastimeuk.com), Neutralize had achieved 985% ROI (Return on Investment) from PPC (Pay Per Click) and an astonishing 2340% ROI from SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
Using their end-to-end Pay Per Click bid management and tracking system, Neutralize were able to make controlled business decisions about the ChristmastimeUK campaign. They were able to quickly identify keyphrases, which were not converting and remove them from the campaign, while increasing CPC (cost per click) and rankings for keyphrases that did convert, ensuring the efficiency and high ROI of 985% for this campaign.
NeutralizeÂs PPC Manager, Caroline Bielby said: ÂSpend on seasonal campaigns can easily spiral out of control if not managed properly. On the run up to Christmas, festive keyphrases tend to be high volume so good tracking tools and daily campaign management is essential to ensure that every penny spent has the best chance possible of converting into a saleÂ.
Caroline continued; ÂBy the second month of the PPC campaign, we had almost halved spend while sales numbers and revenue had soared to over double the amount of previous monthsÂ.
The PPC campaign was ran through the three main search engines: Google, Overture UK, and Espotting. Google generated the highest volume and value of sales. However, Espotting performed exceptionally well, generating over 25% more sales revenue than Overture UK.
ChristmastimeUKÂs Managing Director, Alfred Rose said: ÂFor several years we have been happily running our own campaigns but because of the time involved with running them efficiently we decided to find a partner to take the job off our hands. We targeted three companies and were happy to select NeutralizeÂ he continued "Since taking over our campaign we have seen strong sales growth and a much more efficient use of our CPC budget which I am delighted withÂ.
- Neutralize have also optimised the site and are carrying out ongoing algorithmic search engine optimisation and reporting.
- PPC & SEO work conducted alongside each other to ensure maximum coverage on SERP (search engine results page) real estate, which in turn results in high revenue generation and imrpoved ROI
- Three month targeted PPC campaign and six month SEO campaign
