Our objective

Our client wanted to know if they could make their Pay Per Click (PPC) budget go further. The elnco | Egypt Data Science team specializes in quantifying and understanding the influence that strategic decisions can hold commercially. Our team was designated to measure the consequence if the brand stopped investing in Core Brand terms.

Collectively, the elnco | Egypt PPC & Data Science team alongside the client hypothesized that if Core Brand Pay Per Click (PPC) terms were switched off, there would not be a drop in total search sales since the brand’s strong ranking in organic search would recompense for these lost clicks.

If this hypothesis proved valid, it would indicate that a significant amount of budget would be cleared up for investment in non-brand terms, aimed at shoppers earlier on in their path to purchase. In other concepts, we thought that numerous clicks for Core Brand terms were coming from consumers who may have contrarily gone on to convert anyway through the natural search results. The capability to reinvest this budget would allow our client to influence many buyers who may be more undecided in who they would purchase from as they searched for more generic terms.

What was achieved?

As an outcome of our examination, the decision was taken to cease Core Brand terms, with the teams trusting that the budget could be spent more adequately elsewhere. Through this savvy reinvestment, elnco | Egypt was capable of producing significant growth in non-brand areas, including a 120% YoY revenue boost in a well-performing non-brand category with a 76% YoY budget increase subsidized entirely by cost savings.

In aid, it produced a significant increase in incremental search revenue as the reinvestment of budget led to SEO and PPC operating more efficiently together.

Summary Results

elnco | Egypt presented the information required for a client to make a large-scale business resolution with confidence and data to demonstrate that any risk involved was insignificant.

The budget gains from removing business investment in Core Brand terms permitted us to increase the spend on leading performing non-brand categories by 76% YoY, which drove to a 120% YoY revenue increase.

Although in this case, we were studying the impact of a distinct customer in the travel industry. Excluding investment from bidding on Core Brand terms in PPC, the same strategy could be applied to afford authoritative answers to other questions, such as how valuable Display activity is or whether an investment in mobile returns in sales across various devices.

PPC’s cannibalization of SEO has been a ranting point for a long time in the digital marketing community; It provides a tangible illustration of a particular scenario in which a definitive answer could be discovered.
