Reeling in Fishing
Will They Take the Bait?
Kasba Lake Lodge’s challenge was marketing and reaching its target demographic. Prior to partnering up with War Room, they ran their own Google Ad campaigns. They weren’t sure if the campaigns were performing and could not properly attribute the results (inquiries and visits) to their ads.
Not knowing where your marketing dollars are translating to conversions is frustrating, and it’s not like shooting fish in a barrel. Kasba Lake Lodge has a fantastic location and experience to offer, so it was crucial for War Room to aid in providing transparency and hyper-targeting to maximize their advertising investments.
Hook, Line & Sinker
War Room stepped in to take over Kasba Lake Lodge’s advertising. Working with Kasba Lake Lodge, we could flesh out the target persona that was the perfect fit. Then we dove into Google Ads and optimized it for keywords, and set up proper call tracking to consolidate our performance and provide detailed reports.
We found that the best performing keywords in terms of conversions were “Fishing Trips,” “Fishing Packages,” and “Fishing License.” This proved to us that the target audience was out there actively searching for what their next fishing excursion would be. We then implemented Display Retargeting to recapture those who had clicked Kasba’s ads and ended up on their website but didn’t purchase.
In the report calls with Kasba Lake Lodge, we review the details of how the campaign performed. With detailed graphs showcasing conversion trends, we broke it down into Google search campaigns segmented by different landing pages, top-performing ad groups, and keywords that we tracked and optimized accordingly. We also showcased the top-converting geographical regions, age, and gender groups that performed the best, heat maps, click maps, and scroll maps for an even closer look at user experience and behavior.
By having detailed analytics in the reports paired with visualizations and our team’s expertise, Kasba Lake Lodge can understand and see exactly where the leads are coming from and make any requests for campaign adjustments.
Digital advertising strategy, execution, reporting & optimizations–we take care of it all.
