02.07.2019 – The Sports Edit has seen a fourfold increase in revenue from Google Shopping after implementing new technology to drive growth.

The premium activewear retailer, which has a flagship store in London’s Kings Cross Coal Drops Yard development, reported that income from the paid search channel rose by 300% in 18 months following the introduction of optimised product listing ads.

The Sports Edit is working with ecommerce specialist Oxatis Group to create and deploy feed-based activity on Google Shopping. It’s using ChannelPilot, the Group’s data management tool, to generate a bespoke export feed.

Customers clicking on Google ads are sent directly to the product page on The Sports Edit’s website where the transaction is made.

“Google Shopping drives quality traffic to our site and we needed an offline feed we could regulate to leverage its features,” said Nick Paulson-Ellis, Founder and CEO of The Sports Edit. “ChannelPilot allows us to individually list and monitor products and intellingently calculate their performance so we are fully in control of placement and costs. The technology has contributed significantly to business growth over the past 18 months.”

The Sports Edit is also using ChannelPilot to increase online transactions via affiliate channel Webgains and has seen revenue rise by 90% during this period.

“Brands need to reach shoppers in prominent places where they are browsing, searching and socialising,” said Marc Schillaci, CEO of Oxatis Group. “By centralising its multichannel marketing, The Sports Edit can personalise and micro-manage campaigns to encourage awareness and custom.”
