Social Ad Development, Strategy & Management
Headquartered in NY and handcrafted in Italy, Degs & Sal is a designer men’s jewelry and lifestyle brand, offering high-end rings, bracelets, and necklaces. Created in the founder’s basement, Degs & Sal has since been featured by stars like Justin Beiber and Brad Pitt in GQ & Esquire. Degs and Sal’s modern yet artisan-style caters to an audience of young to middle-age men interested in accessorizing, high-end style, and pieces with eye-catching designs without spending a fortune. Degs and Sal competes with brands such as David Yurman, Miansai, M Cohen, Konstantino, and other well-known names in the men’s designer accessory industry.
While Degs & Sal has some relationships with department stores selling their products, the company turned to direct to consumer marketing as their primary method for growing revenue. After an initial Facebook campaign strategy was crafted and implemented in 2018, the company quickly wanted to begin increasing the budget in an effort to reach more people and increase sales.
Two specific challenges were addressed when developing the campaigns:
First, how do we restructure the campaigns and targeting in a way that more efficiently uses the budget and increases revenue?
Secondly, as the client desires to increase the ad budget over time, how do we scale the campaigns while maintaining and increasing our return on ad spend?
Optidge developed a multi-stage Facebook and Instagram funnel campaign that qualified users and encouraged action. 3 major strategy changes were made to our campaigns: the marketing funnel was expanded and fully fleshed out, the optimization event was changed in parts of the campaign, and the creative was better aligned with the marketing funnel and customer journey.
