Adwise about generating dynamic text ads with Channable

October 11, 2018

For online advertisers with dynamic or large amounts of data, managing campaigns manually can be very labor-intensive. Think of webshops with an array of products or travel companies with many accommodations/trips. Rick ten Voorde, Digital Advertising Marketer at Adwise, is familiar with this situation. Here he shares how Channable can contribute to optimizing Google Ads faster and more effectively.

Adwise about generating dynamic text ads with Channable

Rick: ‘The tool is very user-friendly, allowing multiple advertising specialists to easily work within the tool. This, in combination with the service/support, were the decisive factors.’

Adwise is a full-service digital agency with more than 85 professionals. They offer specializations in the fields of ecommerce, lead generation, process optimization, service & loyalty, labor market communication and branding. They use the SEA tool in Channable for many customers. This SEA tool consists of two features: Text Ads (Bing and Google) and Shopping campaigns. Adwise currently use Channable for around 100 customers.

Why Channable?

Before Adwise started working with Channable, they first trialled a number of tools. The decision to opt for a collaboration with Channable was due to a number of reasons. According to Rick: “Like Adwise, Channable is a young and dynamic company. Channable’s support is customer-friendly, clear and always ready to find to a solution with you. In addition, Channable offers the right support for, for example, the optimization of Google Shopping, Bol.com, Amazon and dynamic Text Ads in Google Ads. In terms of price and functionality, Channable is far ahead of other feed management tools. The Channable Text Ads functionality is also a lot cheaper compared to other tools, which often ask for a percentage of the CPC.’

Rick tells us how Adwise work within Channable: “The search campaigns from the SEA tool are perfectly synchronized from the feed. In addition, it is possible to make changes to the campaigns from Google Ads. This has no further influence on the functions that are performed by the dynamic text tool. The campaigns can be filled manually with ad extensions that are not yet available within the Channable tool and you can also manually add extra search terms in the ad groups. ‘

Advantage of automation

One of Adwise’s clients, Oad, is a Dutch travel organization that specializes in bus trips, flight holidays and day trips for groups and individual travelers. Adwise manages all of Oad’s feeds in Channable. Oad had requested that Adwise further automate the search campaigns within Google Ads for their entire offer: “It is impossible to keep the complete travel offer manually up-to-date within the campaigns; prices and travel availability change quickly.

That is why we decided to largely automate the search campaigns, on the basis of a feed. Journeys that are not available are automatically removed from the campaigns and new groups are automatically created with relevant search terms. For this purpose, the Channable’ SEA tool is perfect. For campaign creation this tool offers the same functions as more expensive tools such as Adcore, Doubleclick search or Bgenius, but Channable’s pricing is way more attractive.’

Results

Rick is very satisfied with the results achieved so far: ‘Most of the profit lies in automating the campaigns that were previously managed manually. The risk of error is huge for manual campaigns because with strongly fluctuating offers there is a risk of advertising trips that are not available at that moment. This is not the case with an automated campaign. The profit can also be clearly seen in the increase in ROAS since using Channable.’

Compared to the non-branded campaigns that were tracked manually, the CPC dropped by 11%. In addition, there was an improvement in the CTR of 6%. But the most important thing; the ROAS increased 135%, from 406% to 953%.

CampaignCPCCTRROAS
Manually€ 0,36,-10,43%406%
Dynamic Text Ads€ 0,32,-11,03%953%
Difference (in %)-11%6%135%

Advice for (starting) Google Ads users

Adwise recommend Channable mainly to companies where the supply is large and varies greatly. “For example large online shops with many products, but also recruitment agencies with a great number of vacancy offers. If a lot of long-tail terms are sought within the market, the dynamic Text Ads feature is a solution.”

For (new) Channable users, Rick wanted to part with some words of advice: “Start with a dynamic campaign on a small scale, for example based on ‘brand’ + ‘type’/‘series’ for an online retailer’s feed. See how it performs compared to your manual campaigns and gradually expand this if you see positive results. That way you can slowly automate more and more. This gives you more time to have an impact at a strategic level.”

Channable’s Christmas Trivia!

 

Christmas doesn’t only have to be fun and games for the children. We’re a fan of the Gift Grab game here at Channable. Instructions are as follows:

 

There are two rounds. You’ll need a dice, a large surface where you can swap and steal easily, and everyone must bring two wrapped presents, they can be anything from an iPhone X (wow thanks!) or even a boring old can of beans. Put all the gifts in a pile in the middle of the area.

 

Everyone rolls the die and the highest roll gets to go first. The first player rolls the dice and must follow the action related to the number thrown.

 

  • Action 1: Choose a present from the pile, but don’t unwrap it!
  • Action 2: Move any gifts you have to the person on your left!
  • Action 3: Choose a gift from the pile and unwrap it!
  • Action 4: Move any gifts you have to the person on your right!
  • Action 5: Unwrap one present (if you have one)!
  • Action 6: Choose a present from the pile, but don’t unwrap it!

 

Once there are no more gifts in the pile, the second round begins (set a timer for around 15 minutes or the game can last forever):

 

  • Action 1: Give one of your presents to someone else.
  • Action 2: Everyone needs to give one gift to the person on their right.
  • Action 3 : Everyone has to swap all their gifts with someone else.
  • Action 4: SWAP one gift with someone else.
  • Action 5: STEAL a gift from someone.
  • Action 6: Everyone move one chair to the left (leave the presents behind 😉 )

Channable Christmas Trivia!

 

Today is Sinterklaas in the Netherlands, Channable’s home country. He is also the inspiration for the popular Christmas icon Santa Claus. It’s typical for the Dutch to eat gingerbread bites named Kruidnoten, so Channable wanted to share the perfect Kruidnoten recipe behind this advent door:

 

Ingredients:

250g self raising flour

125g brown sugar

100g soft butter

4 tbsp milk

2 tbsp speculaas spices ( or 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground cloves, 1 tsp white pepper, pinch of cardamon, pinch nutmeg)

Pinch salt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven 150 C.
  2. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the spices.
  3. Cream the butter and the sugar together in a separate bowl. Add the milk. 
  4. Create a well in the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients. 
  5. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients to make a dough.
  6. Roll the dough into a ball, cover with clingfilm and fridge for 20 minutes. 
  7. Once chilled, form the dough into small grape-sized balls. 
  8. Place the small balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper and squash them slightly and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  9. Remove, cool and enjoy! Happy Sinterklaas!
