Campaign Goals

A top clothing and accessories brand partnered with eBay to maximize sales of men’s shoes and wallets during the Dads & Grads season.





Campaign Strategy

The brand ran an ad campaign with eBay, leveraging promotional traffic drivers that led shoppers to their custom brand experience. eBay’s Client Insights and Analytics team leveraged data science to model out an attributed GMV and 5:1 ROAS goal through Shop-Alike audience targeting.

Utilizing a seed audience of users who previously showed engagement in the brand’s merchandise, a larger targetable audience was generated.

Additionally, the campaign was bolstered with rule-based behavioral, contextual, and keyword targeting to reach users with the highest probability to convert.
