Traverse City, MI (Vocus) October 31, 2007
Integrated online marketing leader Oneupweb has been selected by Meijer, the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer, to develop a pay per click campaign focused on strengthening Meijer's national brand value, sales and brand loyalty online.
"Meijer is a well-known, trusted brand with stores currently operating in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky," says Oneupweb CEO Lisa Wehr. "The search marketing campaign will help position them as a national retail supercenter, eventually making them a household name throughout the United States."
Meijer recently launched a new Ecommerce website allowing customers to shop the retail supercenter online at Meijer.com, including items not available in stores. Meijer partnered with Oneupweb to increase traffic and conversion rates on the site and create a positive reputation as a national online retailer.
"We researched several companies, but what drew us to Oneupweb was the breadth of services offered, particularly in SEO and SEM," says Elizabeth Truman of Meijer's Ecommerce Marketing and Promotions department. "Oneupweb is upfront, easy to work with and provides us with a wealth of great information."
Some of that information will be obtained through Oneupweb's proprietary technology, ROI trax®. This conversion technology allows Oneupweb to monitor, track, and quickly fine-tune Meijer's search marketing campaign.
"We expect to see Meijer's paid search campaign conversion rates rise steadily," says Wehr. "As more consumers find out that they can now 'shop for more at Meijer.com', that increased traffic will result in sales."
