Hungry Fish Media’s objective behind Google Adwords

The consulting & business services brand wanted to increase reach by showing adverts to more customers online as well as increase conversions by getting more customers to purchase Hungry Fish’s beauty and fitness products.

Building the Brand Awareness and Driving Conversions

Hungry Fish Media made use of Google display advertising for building brand awareness and driving online conversions. The team employed placement targeting and remarketing on the Google Display Network for driving conversions at scale online.  Through placement targeting they could select where they wanted their ads to appear while through remarketing they could show ads to users after they have visited their page. The team used placement targeting to run ads on over 2500 target sites and they tagged all those visitors with a remarketing pixel who landed on their shopping page, and remarketed the product to them for 30 days

Words by Chris Cole, Online Marketing Manager at Hungry Fish

“Many direct response companies focus so much on short-term results; they forget to build a lasting brand!” “Those companies struggle over time because their customers don’t come back to buy again. Our primary goal is to drive online sales, but we are also using the exposure to build brands with in-store presence.”  “Placement targeting allowed us to handpick thousands of sites to run our ads without needing to form direct relationships with each of them. Remarketing allowed is to continue showing our ads to that same audience across even more sites, further reinforcing our brand’s message.”
