    From beachside start-up to international success – How Google Ads helped Princess Polly scale to a global success


    Using our proprietary tool Semdoc to conduct in-depth inventory analysis, keyword & market research combined with audience development, Princess Polly successfully expanded across all product categories by a nearly 600%  increase in conversions and doubled the ROI simultaneously.

    Executive Summary

    Princess Polly, Australia’s leading online fashion boutique, had their mindset on achieving a ROAS (return on ad spend) of 10 while expanding the business to cover all product categories as their 2019-2020 main objective.

    Using Google best practices along with Adcore proprietary technology tool, Semdoc and bid management algorithms, we managed to set up and consolidate the campaigns and ad groups for success, which ultimately attracted more qualified traffic to increase ROAS.

    We also used different audience lists and analysed the top audiences for different types of activity (paid Search, Shopping, and YouTube).

    When combined these features have led to stellar results – 100% increase in ROAS & 600% increase in conversions compared with the previous period.



    Since we started managing the account, we have set new records for conversion value consistently every month, making Google PPC the most profitable channel in the business.



    (Return on Ads Spend)

    By using top audiences combining with search ads strategies we managed to build a pool of online shoppers that were often more likely to convert.



    The key objective for website traffic was to find a blend between upper, middle and bottom of funnel through our targeted campaigns.
