Launch and optimization of advertising for a brand of women's sportswear
TikTok Advertising Strategy
First of all, we tried interest-based advertising, limited in time and with a bid of 5$ per conversion. Already on the third day of work, this strategy brought the first sale, and in 10 days we recorded 16 sales at 10.52$ for each.
Also, a couple of days later, they launched ads for video views. At that time, many features were provided only on demand, so we immediately applied for access to such limited functionality as profile promotion, phone number audience, premium audience and collection advertising. For video views, we also chose an audience by interests, but did not limit the time. The rate was at the level of 4$ for 1000 views of 6 seconds of video.
At the beginning of October, we installed Pixel Developer Mode, which allowed us to more accurately determine conversions from ads. We also launched advertising to add products to the cart, on auto-bid, in order to gather an audience. She brought in 9 sales during this time. The purchase conversion ad stopped working, despite the gradual increase in the bid to the maximum possible and changes in the audience. She worked until October 6 and was turned off.
On October 20, the campaign for conversions was disabled, and on October 22, for engagement, due to delays in the receipt of funds to the account from TikTok. On October 16, we launched a campaign for a new goal - Engagement - Subscriptions. This campaign was extremely successful, bringing in over 5,000 subscribers at 0.03$ on average. The add-to-cart campaign did not generate any sales during this time, but Google Analytics recorded three sales through assisted conversions. This is because TikTok only takes credit for conversions if the action was taken inside the built-in browser.
In November, the money came in and we turned on advertising on Subscriptions again. The results were slightly worse, but still very good. We gained almost 6000 more subscribers at 0.10$ on average, but on November 14th the price jumped sharply. Most likely this is due to the opening of advertising cabinets for everyone in Ukraine, which increased competition at the auction. Also, we were given the opportunity to advertise a product catalog, but it almost didn’t show up either on autobid or on various manual bids and didn’t bring results in 12 days (there were 4 associated conversions in Google Analytics), so it was disabled.
For testing, we also opened an advertising account not through an agency, combined accounts in one business account, which made it possible to exchange audiences. In 20 days, it brought 5 orders (12 through Google Analytics) and was temporarily disabled on November 30 at the request of the client
On the agent account, we left the campaign for subscribers, which is now working steadily and brings subscribers, and also introduces the audience to new brand products
