Defining audience

With our knowledge of the brand and their products, we knew that our target audience was parents with young children.

Channel selection and budget allocation

  • We had to consider channels most relevant to the target audience and allowed us to convey the right message and call to action. Therefore, we opted to use the most conversion focused channels:
  • Google Search: highly relevant keywords directly related to Strider Bikes and balance bikes in general.
  • Google Shopping: promoting their products through the shopping platform.
  • Facebook: primarily used for prospecting as well as remarketing purposes and more detailed targeting with Lookalike audiences.

Tailoring messaging

  • We wrote persuasive messaging that resonated with the target audience, and the channel itself. We took into consideration:
  • Key product USPs
  • Channel best practices
  • Main call to action
  • Stage of the marketing funnel the user might be in

Not only this but the campaign continues to attract new users to the website therefore widening our reach and target audience.

Conversion tracking

To measure the success of any campaign, we analysed the website to identify what to track. Since the main KPI was to measure growth in transactions and revenue, we set up e-commerce tracking to record sales. Tracking was set up on the whole user journey from viewing a product page all the way through to checkout to help us identify any areas along this process where users may need more nurturing.
