Background For Paid Media Agency


How CAKE Served Up Success

The Bloom Method came to CakeCommerce in early 2022, looking for support to scale business. They sought an agency that could make tracking and measuring paid media success a piece of cake, as they lacked data synchronization across various marketing platforms. However, the greatest challenge our team of eCommerce specialists came across was a lack of insight and understanding as to what occurs during the buyer journey before customers sign up for The Bloom Method. The team at Bloom did not have strong systems in place to evaluate how customers in their system reached their site and sign-up page, limiting their ability to scale performance and identify what was working and what wasn’t.

For the CAKE team, understanding the buyer’s journey in its entirety is the secret ingredient to measuring success and optimizing your eCommerce marketing strategy to effectively target audiences and drive conversions. With this as our number one goal, we worked with Bloom Studio to develop a top-tier recipe for paid search advertising. To do this, we moved their efforts away from bottom-of-funnel tactile and introduced a more holistic, full-funnel approach to better position the brand with Google. 

We stripped all competitor campaigns and pulled back 80% of their branded search spend, then shifted focus to high-intent, non-branded keywords like “postnatal exercise,” “postnatal workout,” “prenatal workout plan,” and “prenatal cardio,” for example. Targeting these keywords developed an appetite among new prospective customers, making them hungry to learn more about The Bloom Method.

The biggest win we’ve seen (so far) has been baking in software that connects Bloom’s various marketing platforms to better understand the customer journey and proper marketing attribution. With the integration of this software, CAKE and Bloom can now connect user profiles of subscriptions to the marketing channels they came from pre-sign up. We can then use this to better inform future strategies and continue enjoying these sweet results!
