In July 2011, Media Contacts partnered with adMarketplace to extend Volvo's search presence beyond the major engines. The goal was to drive increased on-site engagement, as measured by five key performance indicators using alternative search traffic sources.
adMarketplace took a three-phase approach to optimizing delivery. During the first two weeks of the campaign, adMarketplace collected actionable performance data across traffic sources that had historically performed well within the automotive vertical. Then, based on data collected, adMarketplace's Search Marketing Analysts aggressively optimized these sources, along with top performing keywords to achieve the performance goals set for each engagement. In the final phase, Analysts scaled the campaign across the best sources and keywords.
adMarketplace outperformed the partner network of a major search engine on 4 out of 5 performance metrics.
adMarketplace continued to show improved performance and decreased our cost per KPI based on optimizations they had made to the campaign.— Tanya Sabharwal, Search Marketing Specialist, Media Contacts
It's a good way to get a lot of reach and it's efficient price-wise.— Jim Grates, SEM Supervisor, Media Contacts
