Campaign Design & Structure
Every business’s requirement is unique and varies with its offerings. A local bookstore cannot follow the successful marketing strategies of a big worldwide retail store. Also if there are several product lines to be sold in 10 different countries the positioning mix will vary to suit each product, market and language. We start with understanding the marketing goals, products and competition. We keep a dynamic view in developing a new campaign. Advertising goals can be broadly categorized into branding or direct response. Branding efforts include introducing a new business, launch of a new product or rebranding. Direct response on the other hand can be a sale, sign up, registration, download or RSS subscribe. Envigo tries to establish clearly defined metrics which are aligned towards the client’s business objectives as campaign goals. We at Envigo have catered to very interesting client requirements. One of our clients, a leading education institution wanted niche targeting for a specific course for specific regions in India for specific college destinations. There were lead requirements for MBA course to study in Australia targeted to Delhi users only. Another requirement for MBBS students wanting to study in New Zealand targeted to Mumbai. We started with designing campaigns targeting each market region followed by carefully selection of course specific keywords. The ad copies were precisely designed with the college destinations and the course was highlighted. Negative match keywords were used to filter irrelevant traffic and control costs. The key to the campaign’s success was that we focused on diversified management strategies to meet the specified requirement.
Campaign Setup –Identifying keywords, match types, creative
In Search Engine Marketing, the sponsored ads can run on two networks - Search and Display. While only text ads can be listed on the Search network (Search Engine Result pages) the Display Network (websites partnered with Google/Yahoo-MSN) allows text ads, image ads, video ads and other rich media ads. A new campaign structuring involves identifying the keywords, deciding upon landing pages and also setting initial spend limits to get it started. Once the budgets are defined the keywords are researched. Envigo uses a slew of tools and manual expertise to ensure the most comprehensive keyword suggestions for every product/service range. The task involves ensuring that an ad appears for all the terms which a potential customer might use. The keywords are semantically grouped and aligned to most relevant ad copies. Writing an ad copy thus, accompanies keyword generation. It is advisable to have a bespoke reaction (the appearance of an ad) based on customer action (searching for a keyword) for all possible keyword searches. Campaign tracking is set up and tested at this time to ensure that campaign performance data is collected accurately.
