The Situation

A leading UK table manufacturer wanted to increase traffic and ecommerce revenue from their website. With more competition from consumer websites like Amazon, Argos, Ikea & Tesco for their generic folding table terms a new approach to our ecommerce digital marketing strategy was needed to increase both B2B & B2C sales.

  • Optimised bids on keyword terms and tested new ad copy to increase landing page Quality Score
