CASE STUDY: eBay's retargeting trebles SanDisk's sales

Provided by eBay
Sales trebled by only targeting shoppers in-market for the product category or recent purchasers of complementary products

What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?

Rather than deliver a price led message, SanDisk wished to hit a large reach of truly relevant consumers with a campaign extolling the virtues of their superior memory products and how SanDisk products can help technology perform even better.

What was the Campaign Objective?

What was the Solution?

Deliver a rapid, high intensity retargeting campaign on a select group of individuals who have been identified as exhibiting both long term and short term shopping behaviours which would make them a target for SanDisk products. Behaviours include bidding, buying and searching for products such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops and digital cameras which accept SanDisk memory products as well of course as shopping behaviours and keyword searches for the memory products themselves

What were the Results?
