Arcade Snacks Ups their Game with 3 Media Web

Quick Summary: Combined PPC and SEO campaigns resulted in sharp increases in business. Arcade Snacks had to make adjustments to keep up with the demand.

The COVID-19 crisis was the motivation Arcade Snacks needed to update their digital approach. With a brand new web presence by 3 Media Web launched, focus turned to increasing brand awareness and attracting motivated buyers to the groovy new site.

The client had a limited budget for this pay-per-click (PPC) campaign. Other challenges emerged as the 3MW team was diving into work–namely that the data collected from the Google Merchant Center was inaccurate, and the correct ads were not always displaying.

What we did

We focused on creating two targeted campaigns:

  • Retail – We called on Google’s AI to share some of the heavy lifting. Our team created audiences while observing the AI for our client to double down on in the future.
  • Wholesale – This was the most hands-on part of the PPC strategy. We tested keywords to find those with the best ROI. We then emphasized the highest converting keywords, resulting in campaign success.

How do we know we were successful? The combined PPC and SEO campaigns resulted in such a sharp increase in business that Arcade Snacks had to make adjustments on their end to keep up with the demand. And that’s a good problem to have.
