Disclaimer – This is not a get rich quick or clickbait scenario, this is just one example of how well advertising on Facebook can go. There is no guarantee of anything in marketing especially how much return you will get if you implement the following ideas into your own advertising. However, we have used these ideas in multiple eCommerce businesses across the nation with very positive results.
Before we go over our top performing month I’d like to just give a little more perception on what our process has resulted in for our clients. We spent a total of $102,135.78 in adspend which resulted in $1,378,276.57 in sales, for a total of $13.49 return on adspend. And… We’re pretty dang excited about that!
Perry and I are not very “salesy” people. We’d rather the numbers speak for themselves. In the this blog post I wanted to share with you the best “eCom” month we’ve had for one of our clients and some of the variables that made it work so well.
Let’s jump in!
The best month we had for an individual client was in November of 2018. We had been working with this client for about one year and getting good results all year. In fact, we averaged a $15 ROAS (return on adspend) all year with them. But November was different. They were going to run a BIG sale on some of their most popular products, and put a BIG budget behind it… Well, at least that’s what they wanted to do until they ran out of product because they sold out… We ran the first sale in the beginning of the month and it came back HUGE! The top campaign of the two was targeting cold traffic unfamiliar with the product, the bottom was targeting to warm traffic.
We were excited to see what the rest of the month would have since Black Friday was coming up. Meanwhile, this awareness ad with no offer was boosted because of all the other sales boosting it.
Then came Black Friday. We set everything up ready to spend some big money and get the big returns… BUT, three hours into the campaign we had to turn it off because stock was getting so low so we ended up only spending a small amount!
We finished out the month with a Cyber Monday sale which did OK compared to the others. And of course, we had the dynamic retargeting ad running the whole time.
We did run a few in between campaigns as well, but by the time the month was over we had only spent $2,784.57 and had hit $96,760.70 in sales! We would have for sure made it over 100k if the client had the stock to keep up. (always a good problem to have)
We’ve narrowed it down to a few reasons why this month did so well.
- (The Product) They sell a sugar substitute and at this time of year it starts to pick up with the holiday season.
- (The Offer) They had not run as deep of a sale for a few months. They went all the way down to 50% off.
- (The Content) Their videos they created for their ads were awesome and trendy.
- (The Targeting) The audience had already been nailed down after months of fine tuning.
- (The frequencies) The combination of the sales and the dynamic ad made the ad hard to ignore for relevant audiences.
Hopefully this helps you with your Facebook marketing efforts and can give you ideas for your own business. If you’d like help implementing any of these ideas above feel free to reach out.
Overall it was a great year with all of our clients! We’re grateful for all of them, and excited to see what 2019 has in store!
