The challenges

One of the world’s most intensely competitive marketplaces for liquor online is the state of California. Due to this, the account had been struggling to achieve sustainable returns on tight margins.

In 2021, the holiday season showed them what success could start looking like online, however, the months following waned and remained frustratingly low.

They needed dependable performance at returns that made sense for their business.

The solutions

The team at KeyCommerce immediately set themselves toward learning the details of both the business and the account.

After thorough analysis, new campaign structures with more sensible product segmentation were implemented. This allowed tighter control on the budget allocation, allowing high performers to grow, and low performers to get further attention.
