Søstrene Grene’s main objective was to grow revenue across multiple European markets while unlocking a profit-based approach. Søstrene Grene had a deep understanding of how their products performed, but they wanted to leverage their data to maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of their marketing campaigns. Their data covered many points, such as product margin, items that were often returned, and products that were frequently added to online shopping baskets. Søstrene Grene already sorted products into categories based on their contribution to their business goals, but now they wanted to maximise the impact these data points could have on driving efficient online sales.
Together with the Google Shopping team, Søstrene Grene decided to set up a new campaign structure, setting ROAS to align with their goals and categorising items based on specific product margin data. By adding these details as part of the new structure, Søstrene Grene aimed to increase both revenue and profits. The teams also worked on optimising their Shopping campaign structure to align with their business goals, taking advantage of the recently launched Performance Max campaigns. As well as margins, the teams also considered important factors such as delivery costs.
After months of testing their new campaign structure, Søstrene Grene saw a +373% year-on-year (YoY) increase in revenue while also improving ROAS by 21% YoY. Performance Max campaigns allowed Søstrene Grene to optimise their approach to their customers’ purchase journey. It helped unlock new and relevant placements for their campaigns including display, video, search and more. This helped them to efficiently communicate with relevant target audiences no matter where in the journey they were, and whether they were known or unknown customers.
Søstrene Grene plans to continue its partnership with the Google Shopping team and expects to grow their business by leveraging Performance Max campaigns. They will also continue to implement best practices and use tools and recommendations shared by the Google Shopping team. For example, they recently set up new customer acquisition goals, helping them to improve their targeting to grow their customer base.
