Mindshare manages many successful digital marketing programs for their client, Castrol. Castrol had been using Amazon Advertising as a focus ad destination for their ecommerce program since early 2016, but needed additional help to build out a larger, more detailed program on Amazon with additional budget for the 2018 fiscal year.
The Mindshare team decided to use Kenshoo Ecommerce for Castrol’s Amazon business in 2018. Additionally, since goals were specifically related budget optimizations for increased RoAS, they participated in the Design Partner program of Kenshoo’s Budget Manager for Ecommerce at the same time.
Budget Manager is Kenshoo’s premier budget management solution, often used in tandem with Kenshoo Ecommerce for the best results. It provides automated planning, forecasting and optimizations to ensure the best return on ad spend in Amazon Advertising. With Budget Manager, the Mindshare team created budget plans for Castrol in advance and had Kenshoo’s algorithms pace the budget towards a specific ROI, all based on historical performance.
While focusing on budget management, Mindshare also used Kenshoo Ecomm capabilities to help reach Castrol’s goals:
By leveraging Kenshoo Ecommerce and the Budget Manager solution, the Mindshare team generated outstanding results for Castrol. ROAS for Sponsored Products increased by 40% month-over-month and total sales increased by 28%. With these results, May 2018 had the most total sales generated and the strongest ROAS in a single month and was Castrol’s most successful Amazon campaign ever.
Mindshare continues to successfully utilize Kenshoo Ecommerce and Budget Manager for Castrol’s Amazon Advertising needs.
