They also wanted to simplify their overall performance tracking.

They were also eager to benefit from the expertise of the Paragone team in order to put into place campaign structures that were at once simple, innovative, and high-performing. One of their main goals was to achieve good results in terms of sales volume and return on investment.

Strategy set-up

To get started, Paragone put into place a 5-step plan of action to reach the client’s goals:

1- Identifying the client’s needs
2- Account analysis and recommendations
3- Strategic planning: defining KPIs, objectives, costs, and audiences
4- Running A/B campaigns to test different elements: creatives, audiences, etc.
5- Analysis of results and optimization using Paragone tools

The objectives were to standardize the client’s campaigns in terms of structure, naming, audiences, and more. Paragone also put into place a strategy that would leverage the full potential of Facebook’s ad features through branding, engagement, and remarketing.
