Potter's Printing E-Commerce Case Study Image

Potter's Printing E-Commerce Case Study

Overview & Challenges

 

Potter’s Printing operates in Massachusetts and has an online Shopify Store. Black Box was brought in to help Potter’s clean up their former advertising efforts and to sell their online products in time for the Holiday Season 2019. Potter’s sells personalized clothing, blankets, wrapping paper and more. We began our campaigns on November 1st.

This sample of data is from November 1st through December 13th. We are anticipating increasing the RoAs even more.

Outcome

On our total budget of $21,820, we achieved 2,111 purchases for a conversion value of $111,530. Our 5.11 return on ad spend means that for every $1 Potter’s spent on advertising, we returned them $5.11.

Overview & Challenges

The Jane Hotel operates in New York City and is home to one of the most unique nightclubs in the city. With it’s grand and eclectic décor, and old school interior Black Box was brought in to help The Jane sell out their venue (The Jane Hotel Ballroom) for New Year's Eve. We were tasked with selling VIP tables and tickets to their New Years Eve

2020 event. While The Jane Hotel Ballroom is certainly a very popular and unique destination, selling out for New Year's Eve in one of the most competitive nightlife scenes in the country is still no easy task.
