HP enlisted Wpromote as a search marketing partner in 2006 to drive customers to their online store. In addition to the need for traffic and sales, HP had strategic business objectives such as focusing on new customers, growing the small business segment and increasing visibility of key product groups.
As a performance partner, Wpromote was tasked with building campaigns from scratch that delivered a high-volume of customers. The number of competitors in the search space had driven up cost, making it challenging to operate within the strict margins required, especially with respect to HP’s strategic goals.
A comprehensive search campaign was constructed with thousands of highly competitive and long-tail keywords. To achieve the volume of traffic and sales needed, campaigns were expanded beyond paid search to include content networks and large media buys. Ongoing testing and optimization helped to ensure optimal traffic quality and additional targeting was employed to supplement each of HP’s business objectives.
Product-focused microsites were developed to educate consumers at various points in the purchase funnel and custom landing pages with promotional offers served to accelerate conversions. Microsites were optimized for conversions through A/B testing of page components and messaging.
Wpromote has referred upwards of 500,000 visitors per month to the site, generated millions in sales revenue to HP and remains a top marketing partner. With the demonstrated ability to respond quickly and deliver results, HP continues to utilize Wpromote to drive customers and support business objectives.
