Gala increased its customer base

When Gala, a 30-year old brand of home cleaning equipment, wanted to expand their customer base online, they chose sponsored ads to do so.

New customer acquisitions made simple, with sponsored ads

With sponsored ads, the brand was able to target relevant shoppers by creating keyword targeted ads for their products that were displayed to shoppers looking to buy cleaning equipment such as brooms, mops, etc. “Thanks to [sponsored ads], our ads are shown to people who are interested in them. Keyword targeted ads have empowered us by helping us increase our visibility of our products and acquire many new customers. We now understand our customers and their buying behavior a whole lot better.”

Helped upgrade shoppers from popular products to higher value products

With e commerce being of the most convenient and preferred mediums for brands and shoppers, Gala has been focusing on establishing its foothold across the online medium. Use of product targeted ads on the advertising console, enabled them to up-sell and cross-sell their premium mops by placing their ads on related product detail pages belonging to various prominent brands.

“With [Product Display Ads] we are able to upgrade shoppers- considering regular and economical products to our premium product ranges such as the spin mop, more easily. We believe this has been possible through our ads, which showcased our products in the best light, and enjoyed higher visibility through their strategic placements.”, says Mr. Sanket Mokashi, Senior Key Account Manager
