Go Up was tasked with supporting supermarket sales with additional online conversions. This was achieved by raising awareness and driving relevant traffic to key transactional pages using paid advertising.
To ensure goals were met, Go Up ran tandem campaigns as part of Rubies’ ongoing paid social activity. The first, ‘Condimentary Mayo’, was focussed on conversions, and featured creative paid placements across social media. These placements enjoyed high engagement due to using low friction to conversion mechanics, such as swipe up features.
The second campaign, ‘Veganishuary’ focused on brand awareness, fuelled by the topicality of ‘Veganuary’ at the time, and encouraged customers to give Veganism a go for the good of the planet.
As a traffic and conversion campaign, the key performance indicators were CPC (cost per click) and CTR (click through rate).
Cost per click was well below the food and drink industry average, with Go Up achieving an average CPC of just £0.23.
CTR averages across industries on Facebook are all below 1%. Prior to Go Up optimisations the account average was 0.49% so achieving 3.4% was an incredible result.
iOS 14 conversion tracking issues were avoided by not relying on remarketing or lookalike audiences. In addition, Go Up compared pre-existing data against the final Shopify data, as opposed to relying on in-platform ads metrics. This was more easily tracked via UTM-tagging.
CPM (cost per mille): £2.75 CPC: £0.08 CTR: 3.4%
As a brand awareness and reach campaign, the key performance indicators were impressions and reach focused.
Technically split into 2 different campaigns, one optimising for awareness and the other reach, testing different optimisation methods.
£0.47 CPM is below both food and beverage industry as well as platform averages meaning that we were able to drive awareness/reach very cost effectively.
Estimated ad recall was measured specifically by reach focused campaigns, meaning a 10% ad recall per user was met.
Overall, the brand experienced their best click through rates to date and garnered cost effective reach. The overwhelming success of both campaigns prompted an internal review into onsite customer journey, with the aim to maintain interest generated from active campaigns and reduce checkout abandonment.
