The Strategy: Grow New Buyers
To achieve the targeted revenue growth, the Metric Theory team focused on increasing new customer acquisition through non-brand search and Facebook advertising. Metric Theory scaled investment in Facebook prospecting as the channel most likely to drive new customers. In addition to improving direct Facebook revenue, this led to larger remarketing audience pools. Those larger audiences contributed to stronger PPC brand and remarketing performance, and Metric Theory optimized PPC campaigns to fully take advantage of and convert this additional traffic.
