Driving ROI for Mercedes-Benz Seattle Through AdWords

“The best or nothing."

That’s the motto that Daimler-Benz founded Mercedes-Benz with, and it remains the motto that the company carries the torch into the future with.

It was also the primary principle at the front of our minds as we devised a Google AdWords campaign that would produce the kind of return on investment (ROI) that would put a smile on the faces of the owners at Mercedes-Benz Seattle.

Running a Google AdWords campaign has been described as “more art than science.” At Fannit, we believe that it is a delicate combination of the two — with the science governing the campaign’s foundation, and the art dictating its appeal to those that come across it in their searches on Google.


Setting Out With a Goal

With a good idea of what kind of vehicles we wanted to promote and the markets that we wanted to be going after, we set out to the search engine titan with the goal to get as much for our ad spend as we possibly could.
As always, keeping the cost-per-conversion low was every bit as imperative as getting the clicks in the first place. We don’t just want traffic, we want the right traffic. Our month of June was meant to collect some sample data to test the proverbial “waters” and see what we were capable of in the market.

Results: “Well, that went well.”

The results of our June campaign for Mercedes-Benz Seattle speak quite well for themselves, so have a look.
