Client Goals

1.

Improve brand visibility as a premium manufacturer

Papierniczeni aims to position its company as synonymous with top-notch quality, niche products, and artisanal craftsmanship within the paper goods industry, including notebooks, calendars, and calligraphy tools. To help our Client achieve this business goal, we focused on running text ads and branded campaigns. During peak sales seasons, we also made use of display campaigns.

2.

Increase sales revenue

By building brand recognition among their target audience, Papierniczeni also wanted to increase sales. They placed a particular focus on calendars, which is a highly demanded product from October to December, gradually tapering off from January to March. In addition to calendars, Papierniczeni offers a year-round selection of products, including notebooks, planners, notepads, and various paper goods from global brands and their own crafted items.

SEM Team

We had a clear strategy in place for Papierniczeni advertising campaigns. Our main goal was to help the Client sell more of their products. To achieve that, we had to make our regular SEM process maximally efficient, using the limited budget we had. It’s worth noting that migrating the store to Shopify and connecting Google Merchant Center to the API played a significant role in delivering impressive results to the Client. Plus, we set up Google Analytics 4 for even better insights and tracking of our advertising performance, which appeared to be superb.

Google Ads Campaign for Papierniczeni

Search Campaigns

Why we did it

We began our partnership with Papierniczeni back in 2019, starting with a pretty modest ad budget. Fast forward to today, thanks to our improved performance, the Client has upped the budget by 67%. Right from the start, we rolled out Search Campaigns as one of our primary campaign types.

In our Search Campaigns, our main goal was to adapt the right tone of voice and the whole messaging, making it tailored to the target audience. This way we ensured that Papierniczeni ads weren’t seen as just another run-of-the-mill sales pitch. Instead, we aimed to capture attention by highlighting the exceptional quality of their products.

It’s worth noting that our Client’s assortment comes from both well-known and niche manufacturers worldwide and features a minimalist aesthetic, unique designs, exclusive collections, and artisanal craftsmanship.

In these campaigns, we made it clear that Papierniczeni is a workshop where customers can discover handcrafted, niche products.

We also made use of structured ad snippets. Apart from all the available assets, ranging from classic Sitelink, Price, or Promotion, we also made use of the latest addition, which is available from 2022 – Image. This asset allowed us to add images to text ads displayed on mobile devices.

Assets are there to make the text ads’ visibility more prominent, increase users’ engagement through extra visual content and information, and thus potentially drive higher conversion rates.

Shopping Campaigns

(now Performance Max)

Why we did it

Shopping Campaigns took center stage in our efforts for Papierniczeni because they drive the highest sales. To keep a closer eye on the results, we grouped the offered products and created separate campaigns for each group. The first campaign highlighted three brands that were a top priority for the Client, including the bestsellers. We also launched another campaign for the remaining products, except for calendars, which had their own dedicated budget, and hence a separate third campaign.

Starting from August 24, 2022, we switched from Shopping Campaigns to Performance Max, a versatile and goal-based campaign that mixes several campaign types (e.g. Search, Video, Shopping, and Display) in various combinations.

At the moment, we’re still waiting for the results to unfold over the long term, yet we can already see these campaigns gaining traction and delivering highly satisfying outcomes.

What’s particularly crucial with Performance Max campaigns is a shift in how we create such content. These campaigns demand a lot, not just in terms of ad content, but also in the choice of graphics and video materials. We also need to carefully plan our product structure and target audience.

For Papierniczoni, we took care of several important factors:

  • We created ad content that suited the way we communicated with the Client’s customers.
  • We made sure that the headlines in our text ads were unique (ie. didn’t duplicate), which is something that is often overlooked by Performance Max campaign managers
  • We carefully chose the right number of high-quality images that matched Papierniczeni’s image (we provided the Client with clear guidelines for creating these graphics).
  • We selected relevant ad assets.
  • We set up the target audience properly, considering user behavior, the keywords they searched for, and the niche brands they were interested in.
  • We narrowed down the product categories and specific products for the campaigns to focus on, such as bestsellers, major brands, 2023 calendars, or other selected products.

Moreover, in PM campaigns, it’s crucial to select video materials thoughtfully. Otherwise, Google might end up creating these materials on its own, which may not necessarily align with the company’s communication strategy.

To avoid this, at Delante, we always provide our Clients with a full guidebook. We’re also available for support and feedback.

Seasonal Display Campaigns

Why we did it

Before we introduced Performance Max Campaigns into the Google Ads system, we ran Display Campaigns exclusively during the peak sales season to convey information about the new calendar collection to potential customers. Our primary goal at that time was to increase awareness of the new offering among both new and returning customers.

We developed distinct strategies for both new and returning customers at Papierniczeni to ensure that the conversions generated by the campaign would be as high as possible.

Every year, we started the campaigns in September and October to increase Papierniczeni’s visibility to the target audience, consequently helping the brand become more recognizable at the start of the sales season. However, with the introduction of Performance Max, pure Google Display Network campaigns have become less critical due to budget constraints and increased competition.

As we approached the new year, our primary goal was to facilitate the customers making the purchases in the easiest way possible.

The Performance Max and Display Campaigns were aimed at increasing visibility, hence driving more conversions. Additionally, the Dynamic Search Ads (DSA) analyzed the website, headlines, and titles to tailor ads to users’ queries. This helped us attract extra traffic and capture potential new search queries. This multi-stage approach delivered exceptionally positive results.
