  • “With a lean team, it’s fairly difficult to consistently test and optimize new ads across multiple audiences and placements. Dynamic ads for broad audiences allowed us the ability to serve the optimal creative to the right audience—facilitating marketing scalability and customer acquisition growth. From 2018 to 2019, we were able to increase our investment by 28X and revenue by 50X.”

The Challenge

Looking For Luxury Shoppers

Trina Turk wanted to see if moving from strictly traditional advertising platforms to advertising on Facebook could be an effective way for a luxury brand to find new customers appropriate for the brand.

The Solution

Broadening Horizons

Trina Turk had been reluctant to try advertising on Facebook because the company leaders worried that their ideal luxury shopper might not be on Facebook or Instagram. However, working with digital agency and Facebook Business Partner (FBP) Wpromote, the team found its audience.

  • Uploaded a product catalog into Facebook’s Ads Manager and created dynamic ads for broad audiences.
  • Lookalike audiences were created and reached out to based on the new shoppers who clicked through to the website. Facebook selected the platforms for the ads and automatically updated them in real-time based on which ones were performing best.
  • Auto advanced matching was used to understand where sales were coming from to help the team make better decisions with its ad spend. Auto advanced matching anonymously matches sales to Facebook profiles.
