We've set up a valid Google Analytics counter, connected to the e-commerce tracking module to see the transaction sources and total income. Before this, the average income on the order was imputed at level 250 UAH, which did not correspond to the actual figures.
We also have effectively set up the structure of the advertising campaign according to the sections of the site and divided advertising campaigns by type, variety, plant name and seeds.
Created advertising campaigns in Google Display Network and Yandex Ad Network, which lighten the store's promotional offers (cumulative discounts for goods, bonuses and gifts in order to carry out a certain amount).
The ads were carefully written showing the benefits and the call for target action, and also ad extensions were used.
Manual control of rates has been applied, and the maintenance of advertisements in the desired positions has been used.
We constantly worked with search queries and minus-words and the lists of keywords and minus-words were expanding.
Conducted A/B testing of advertisements to identify the most clickable and conversional.
Distributed daily budgets for the most profitable and conversion products, constantly controlling and revising them.
Setting up and maintaining contextual advertising was done in strict accordance with the seasonality of the items in each category on the online store site.
For example, goods such as the seeds of flowers and vegetables were commercially good to be advertised in the middle of November and during winter, while tree seedlings and colour bulbs were advertised beginning with February.
These actions significantly saved the advertising budget and increased its efficiency.
The Google Analytics graph shows a steady increase of income from October 2016 to the end of February 2017.
