Early adopter of product ads “We have long believed in the promise of product advertising. Campmor was one of a half-dozen companies to participate in the original Froogle beta test,” says Nicholas Scilingo, director of SEO/SEM. “Coming out of beta, we were pleased with the results and signed up to continue as a Google product advertiser.” Campmor has continued to be an advertiser on Google product ads since their inception. Opportunity to drive product sales Shortly after becoming a Product Listing Ads (PLA) advertiser, Campmor engaged the services of Channel Intelligence (CI). CI is a launch partner of Google Shopping and also has worked with Google since the first days of Froogle. “The CI managed-services team ensures we have the highest-quality product data feeds and continually employ product-bidding best practices to maximize our product sales, while maintaining our return on ad spend (ROAS),” Scilingo says. Campmor works with CI to optimize Google PLAs. “A Product Listing Ad is one of the most flexible advertising media in regards to bidding strategies,” Scilingo adds. “PLAs on Google Shopping deliver higher-quality traffic with higher conversion rates relative to many other advertising programs. From our early experiences, we were confident PLAs would help us deliver greater sales while maintaining our target ROAS.”

“PLAs on Google Shopping consistently provides key information, including product image, pricing, and promotional and availability data, that helps each ad listing be more quickly understood and be more compelling to consumers.” —Nicholas Scilingo, director of SEO/SEM, Campmor

Ten-fold increase in PLA sales Working with CI, Campmor increased sales ten-fold on PLAs and maintained target ROAS over the first six months of 2012.
