The Challenge

The experts at Kowalska turned to us as their previous Internet marketing contractor was bringing untargeted traffic to the site. So we were tasked with fixing the situation.

The call events were not being fed into Google Analytics at all. The calls could only be analyzed in the call-tracking analytics system itself, where call statistics could not be viewed by advertisement groups, keywords, or audiences. Not only that, the previous contractors did not use UTM-tags for links to track the effectiveness of advertising in terms of key phrases.

Thus, it was impossible to identify the ad groups, keywords, or audiences that led to conversions, and the ones that were wasting the budget.

The Solution

  1. We set up event tracking through Data Layer and the target in Google Analytics was the Feedback form. Now, the data from the submission of this form went into analytics.
  2. Then, we configured the transmission of calls by ad group, keyword, and audience in Google Analytics.
  3. We re-assembled the semantics. After getting rid of general and costly keywords, we divided the semantics into campaigns linked to geolocation (street, city district, metro station) and general and commercial keywords groups.
  4. Next, we adjusted the media advertising campaigns. We included remarketing to interested users who had not made targeted actions such as calling or sending a form, and media campaigns to cover the new target audience.
  5. The budget was distributed with 70% allocated to search advertising and 30% to media advertising.
  6. We provided recommendations for improving the site's usability and technical aspects to speed up page load. We did this because the client had separate landing pages for each residential complex with a large-scale 3D panorama — a virtual tour of the entire residential complex with detailed segmentation by sections, floors, layouts, and window views.

  1. We also proposed a cross-domain tracking configuration to the client as the developer had several logically related sites. Despite the transitions from one page to another, the analytics were not synchronized.

The Results

  1. As the focus shifted from media advertising (which costs less per click) to search advertising using only targeted queries, the average cost per click increased by 70%. At the same time, advertising costs increased by 30%.
