This case study demonstrates how we turned around a failing PPC campaign by using personas to improve the keyword targeting. The result? We improved conversions by 152%.

using personas for keyword selection is amazing

Client Profile

A client offering a self-serve version of a SAAS product that aggregated and displayed social media content on a website.

The Challenge

Our goal is to drive free trial sign ups via PPC. The campaign included Google AdWords, Bing Ads, Display & Retargeting. The problem? The campaign was under-performing. Turns out – we weren’t targeting the right people…

The Solution

  • Use what we had learned to create better customer personas – the client’s initial assumptions were wrong
  • Develop new keywords & ads based on the target personas

The Results

  • Cost per acquisition decreased 58%
  • Conversions increased by 152%

Way to go team Amplify!
