Alp-n-Rock teamed up with CPC Strategy to grow their Revenue on Facebook
Alp-n-Rock initially joined CPC Strategy in June 2014 for assistance with their Google Shopping campaigns. In August 2015, they teamed up with our Facebook advertising service offering to increase orders and revenue via the social platform.

Increase Overall Revenue
Goal 1: Increase Facebook Order Growth
CPC Strategy recognized that competition for yoga & active apparel was challenging on the Google Shopping side of the business. We saw a significant increase in cost per click as high as $8 for items such as yoga pants. Instead of competing against high CPCs within the apparel category – we shifted a segment of their marketing budget to optimize Alp-n-Rock’s Facebook advertising efforts.
Thanks to Facebook’s advanced retargeting capabilities, we transitioned Alp-n-Rock to a “brand focused” campaign – targeting their niche audience, past purchasers and / or cart abandoners.
Goal 2: Increase Facebook Revenue
In addition to targeting cart abandoners, we also focused our Facebook advertising efforts on past purchasers utilizing Facebook Dynamic ads to promote cross-sell and / or upsell opportunities. A “cross-sell” would be if a customer purchases a pair of yoga pants, we target that same buyer with a Facebook Dynamic Ad featuring a complimentary yoga tank. Or if someone purchased Spring gear 4 months ago (and is in the Past Buyers 120 Days audience), when Alp-n-Rock launches their new Fall line, we can target the customer with an ad to bring her back for a repeat purchase.
Facebook Dynamic Ad “upsells” can increase sales because they advertise a similar but more expensive product. This strategy proved to be a successful approach for Alp-n-Rock and led to an overall 14% growth in Facebook Dynamic Ad revenue.
Long Term growth is also expected as Alp-n-Rock’s Facebook audience continues to grow. As we gather more site visitors, we can add them to our remarketing audiences. This provides a wider net of potential customers that we can target with Dynamic Ads ads each time a new season comes around.
