Our Strategy

Mapplinks developed a strategic approach centered on audience targeting, ad optimization, and continuous campaign refinement.

The key strategies included:

  1. Targeting: The Mapplinks team performed detailed audience research to identify the brand’s target market segments. We employed demographic, geographic, and interest-based targeting to ensure ad visibility among the most relevant potential customers.
  2. Keyword Optimization: We conducted thorough keyword research to identify high-intent keywords relevant to the brand’s products. By incorporating these keywords into ad copy and targeting, we maximized the visibility of the brand’s ads to potential customers actively searching for fashion products.
  3. Performance Max (pMax) Campaigns: Our team leveraged Performance Max campaigns, a powerful Google Ads feature that combines various ad formats, including search, display, video, and app campaigns. This allowed the brand to reach a wider audience across multiple channels, optimize bidding strategies, and drive conversions more efficiently.
  4. Smart Shopping Campaigns: To further enhance the brand’s ecommerce success, we implemented Smart Shopping campaigns. By leveraging machine learning algorithms, Smart Shopping campaigns delivered the brand’s ads to potential customers with high purchase intent, maximizing conversions and revenue.
  5. Ad Extensions and Sitelinks: We utilized ad extensions and sitelinks to enhance the brand’s ad visibility and provide additional information to potential customers.
  6. Remarketing Campaigns: To effectively target users who had previously engaged with the brand’s website or shown interest in specific products, we implemented remarketing campaigns. These campaigns utilized tailored ads to re-engage potential customers, reminding them of the brand’s offerings and encouraging them to complete their purchases. We also used other channels such as email and SMS to recover carts and get repeat orders.
  7. Continuous Monitoring and Optimization: Mapplinks closely monitored campaign performance, analyzed data, and made data-driven adjustments to enhance ad delivery, bidding strategies, and targeting. This iterative approach ensured optimal campaign performance throughout the engagement.

Apart from this, we also focused on optimizations outside the ad campaigns themselves, such as:

  1. Conversion Rate Optimization
  2. Landing Page Updates
  3. Product Feed Optimization
  4. Keyword Optimizations
  5. Brand Voice and Copywriting
