Google Premier Partnership

Last month, V Digital Services was honored with a Google Premier Partner designation, which gives us a leg up in the PPC world compared to competitors and allows sales to leverage the following with potential clientele:

  • Reporting insights into our client’s competitors
  • Case studies and industry trends knowledge for our core verticals including ecommerce, retail, restaurant, automotive, and service industries
  • Optimization recommendations made by Google specialists to our paid specialists in order to improve campaign performance
  • Beta access to new products and concepts related to AdWords

V Digital Services is very excited about this new level of our partnership with Google, however please do not confuse it with Google Premier SMB Partnership – which is the next level of partnership that V Digital Services is striving to obtain. We hope to deliver that messaging this time next year, but until then, please leverage and promote the Premier Partnership we have with Google.

Campaign of the Month

Client – : Arise Music Festival
City Media Rep – Heather Lowe (Denver)
Account Manager – Adrianna Ovnicek
Social Paid Media Specialist – Miguel Torres

arise music festival

Arise Music Festival is a musically diverse, festival-wonderland experience featuring seven stages of live music, yoga, workshops, theme camps, art gallery and installations, children’s village, speakers, films, and campaigns on 100 beautiful mountain valley acres in Loveland, Colorado.

The client’s business objective was to utilize Facebook ads in order to drive online ticket sales through their EventBrite checkout page. In order to successfully achieve this business objective, Miguel Torres and Adrianna Ovnicek implemented the following strategy to drive client success:

  • Implement Facebook pixel tracking with EventBrite in order to track checkout and report back on ROI.
  • Utilize video ads advertising in order to easily and quickly connect with users that are fans of bands in the Arise lineup, while also targeting users who have an interest in their workshops (Ex: yoga lovers). All video ads were placed on the Westword Facebook page in order to leverage the publication’s reputation and following.
  • Once users engaged with the initial video ad but did not purchase a ticket, a remarketing campaign kicked in and would display another click-to-website ad.

The campaign strategy was able to not only drive a large ROI but successfully meet and exceed the client’s business objectives. To date, the campaign has spent a total of $1,898.39 resulting in:

    • Impressions: 114,682
    • Clicks: 3,169
    • Conversions: 608
    • Conversion value: $16,467.62

Social sprits have seen huge success for event-based campaigns mainly because of the precise targeting methods that Facebook allows us to access. Arise Music Festival is one of several examples of how to utilize Facebook ads to drive ticket sales for events in your local community.
