heavy duty parts brand scaled with multi-channel strategy

Company Background: The Story

This company is a long-standing and reputable provider of OEM-quality heavy duty parts, offering engine rebuild kits, components, and parts to a variety of industries, such as Agriculture, On-highway Trucking, Marine, Construction, Warehousing, and Industrial. With a target audience consisting of hardworking blue-collar individuals aged 25-55+, predominantly male, they operate in a highly competitive market, facing stiff competition from larger, established players.

Prior to our engagement, they relied solely on Google for marketing but lacked effective tracking and organization. Despite being one of the oldest and most respected providers of heavy duty parts, they had experienced stagnant growth. However, our team identified numerous opportunities for expansion through paid media and organic strategies, which we capitalized on to help this brand achieve its full potential.

Our Growth Approach

embertribe optimize targeting case study

Re-alignment and organization of the account to optimize targeting:

The first growth strategy involved re-aligning the tracking system to optimize for the correct values and breaking out audience sets and asset groups to improve targeting. This allowed for greater control on product and brand delivery and set the foundation for further growth.

Secondary retargeting approach using Facebook:

The second growth strategy involved using Facebook as a secondary retargeting approach, leveraging the fact that the target market was present on the platform. Video, dynamic catalogs, and single images were used to push direct value to the end user.

multichannel omnichannel expansion

Multi-Channel approach and expansion of targeting capabilities:

The third growth strategy involved taking an omnichannel approach and applying learnings from retargeting efforts to boost top-funnel campaigns in a self-sustaining fashion. To grow and scale the account, budgets were increased and targeting capabilities were expanded to reliably grow revenue.

Tracking Optimization

We started by updating the tracking system and ensuring our environment was set up for success. Since it is a custom site, it took some time to get correct coding in the right places (especially with facebook).

Complete Retargeting Set Up

Then we tackled the organizational breakouts (main and tier 2 campaigns) with audience testing and asset creation. We enabled Facebook retargeting with middle and top funnel campaign creative assets.

Scaling and Optimizing Key Campaigns

In the 3rd and 4th month, we started scaling the budget and optimized the key campaigns. With the organizational work and correct tracking in place, we were already beating the numbers from the previous year.

Budget Allocation per Channel

Continual scaling of budgets by about $5k/month until reaching $50k/mo in ad spend on the 9th month.
During the 9 months of management, we learned Facebook and Google had the greater opportunity for return and overall scalability. Initially we had some budget on Bing but ultimately pivoted from that channel to focus on efficiency while we continue scaling.

How we increased our returns from the Facebook campaigns?

We created our own video content commercials for our top funnel placements which performed very well! By adding more creativity into specialized content for this specific user group we started seeing the return across the funnel. The key was running a deep audience research and ensuring we followed our insights from the research to the creative execution and testing.

TOP STRATEGY FOR B2B LEAD GENERATION

Multi-Channel Growth System

Our clients still make substantial revenue on the popular primary channels. But we know that Facebook and Google costs are rising, and scale is limited.
