Croud extends Microsoft Advertising Partner Network targeting across multiple brands
After running this test for a full month, Croud found that the new, optimised syndicated campaigns had not only driven an additional 14% conversions, but the CPCs were also considerably lower, bringing the overall Microsoft Advertising account cost-per-acquisition (CPA) down by 5%, according to Croud internal data (1 September-30 November, 2019).
Impressed by the success of this trial, Croud adopted this as part of its normal activity for the account and also extended Microsoft Advertising Partner Network targeting to three other brands in the company’s client portfolio. After a three-month period, Croud combined the results of the four brands and found on aggregate that the Microsoft Advertising Partner Network was responsible for reducing CPCs by 8%, acquiring 20% incremental conversions and bringing the blended Microsoft Advertising CPA down by 11%.
“By expanding our targeting through the Microsoft Advertising Partner Network, we have unlocked further potential to maximise conversions whilst also increasing cost efficiency,” said David Podesta, Croud’s PPC Account Manager. “The success of this feature for one client saw the approach being rolled out to other brands representing different industries and verticals, where we have since seen the same positive impact in driving more profitable results.”
By managing Microsoft Advertising Partner Network targeting through separate campaigns, Croud was not only able to further increase its reach across the Microsoft Search Network, but has done so in a way that brought in additional conversions in a more cost effective manner.
