To increase brand awareness of the online store.
To drive registrations and sales.
To increase trust in the brand.



As this is a new brand, we needed to keep costs low for the client while optimising ad spend efficiently. We used both the Google and Bing search engines and we employed a three-pronged strategy:

  • Effective ad copy
  • Intensive competitors research
  • Maximum cost-per-click Bids


The only way we were able to take on the established (big budget) online stores in SA, was to employ the following tactics:

  • Ad copy rotations for a better Click Through Rate
  • Rigorous competitor research, only serving our ads at #1 when Raru offered the best prices
  • Commercial keyword bidding to ensure commercial interest
  • Proactive negative keyword implementation
  • Show ads at very specific times to serve our ads based on several pre-determined metrics
