‘You should run your digital campaign for a minimum of 90 days’ advises our Director of Sales, Sarah Gordee.
Why is that? Well, Sarah didn’t make it up! She’s simply armed with real results and recommendations from our Hookd experts having run campaigns for several years across many industries. It’s knowledge that we continue to use to benefit each unique client that walks through the door, so that they get the best possible results in a short amount of time.
Can you run a digital campaign for just 60 days? Sure! And you’ll see impressive results, but something magical happens when machine learning and Hookd’s optimization strategies are given the opportunity to really gain traction. Suddenly, all of those components will begin to work together and you begin to see a real impact!
Time and time again, we see our client’s results really start to jump after about that 3-month mark. In month one, we’re learning what the targeted audience is responding to. Through tweaks and optimizations, responses improve, and Google has enough data to accurately predict which ads will perform best for each user.
After 3 months, results can exponentially improve. In the below client example, you can see how clickthrough rate (CTR) really jumped after the 90-day mark. While the clickthrough rate was always above industry average, the campaign interaction really shot up as we learned and made tweaks to messaging, images and targeting.
Below is another client example of how CTR jumped after remaining steady for 3 months. During those first 3 months, impressions continued to increase meeting our client’s goal of increased awareness, but the interaction rate really improved with the availability of ample data to inform our optimizations.
The cool thing about digital marketing is that you can learn a lot in a short amount of time! We know fairly quickly which messages and images are being clicked on. That’s why clients happily see great results in their first monthly reports! However, time is needed for Google to adjust, and more data allows us to do our jobs even better, improving results even more.
