Client Case Studies
Shopify clients who’ve achieved amazing growth with Digital Darts.
🔥 Forced To Stop Accepting Orders for Months After Paid Social Ads Launch
In two months, we stopped accepting orders because we have a high order volume after the paid social media ads. Our total revenue is increased about 430%. Hi, I’m Yusuf, and I am the co-founder of the Galen Leather.
Galen Leather is a small company based in Turkey, Istanbul. We produce leather and wooden products like notebook covers, notebooks, and some leather accessories. Our company founded by my sister, Zeynap, in 2012. After hard times and severe health problems, Zeynap’s life has changed. She couldn’t speak. Her career was over. Galen Leather story began after that.
After we relaunch website, we experienced some issues and problems like low traffic, SEO problems.
The main reason for to choose the Digital Darts was the recommendations. We reach out with Digital Darts and get good personalized approach for our needs and transparent communication. Monthly reports.
So we start to work with Digital Darts five years ago. Our total revenue is increased about 430%. Keywords of the organic search was 7,900 and increased 50,000 in a month. We export our goods to 142 countries.
I have a lot of time for my hobbies, for my family, for my daughter, and for our business to develop new products. Doesn’t matter if you have online store or physical store. If you want to increase your sales, you need to work with Digital Darts.
🔥 They Spend Like It’s Their Own… 70% Revenue Jump In 6 Months with CPA Down 330%
Since starting with Digital Darts, the first six months produced a 70% increase in revenue, and within 16 months we saw a 10 times jump in Google Ads spend whilst maintaining a very healthy ROAS.
My name is Bryce Capp. I’m creative director and co-founder of Milton & King. We design, manufacture and sell direct to consumer wallpapers. The biggest thing for us is our marketing spend was non-existent. We’d given away a fair bit of product and that was basically our marketing spend.
We moved into Facebook ads and Google ads, and that’s when we found a buyer that was on the recommendation of someone else that we worked with. Although they were doing a fair job, the clarity wasn’t there, so we weren’t a hundred percent sure how well it was going. Digital Darts came highly regarded, so I reached out and that’s how it all started.
My role has always been around the wallpaper and the designs, but in the last few years that had changed and merged more into the marketing side of the business. But since working with Digital Darts, that has freed my time up and allowed me to get back to that curation of our collections. And, and at the end of the day, that’s what we’re selling. So it’s the most important part.
The biggest benefit of working with Digital Darts is the processes they use and the clarity in which they present. It removed any second guessing that we may have and gives us some clear direction and focus into what growth avenues we have or where we need to tighten up.
Last year we had Facebook Ads returning a ROAS of about 3.24, and that’s double what we were doing the year before. Our cost per acquisition was around $47. Year to date, we are, we are looking like it’s closer to 14, which is a big improvement and gives us flexibility in creativity in how we spend.
Working with Digital Darts is seamless and they’re a great addition to our team. There’s a hundred percent trust in that they know what they’re doing and they’re spending our money wisely. We have weekly catch ups. We know exactly where they’re at and what they’re doing. There’s plenty of clarity, advice, and support in how they spend our money and, and what they’re doing with it. They spend it like it’s their own, so that’s the most important part.
🔥 525% Revenue Increase in the First 4 Months
We saw an increase of 535% in revenue in the first four months.
My name’s Van Oayda and I’m one of the founders and owners of Bondi Beach Tea Co. I started this business up in 2015. We sort of snuggled in there as a very high-quality contract manufacturer and retailer of award-winning tea blends that we could make available for our customers under their own branding. It’s a basically multinational, multimillion dollar business now. We have facilities in Houston, Texas, in the USA and we manufacture here in Sydney.
In the early days it was just incorrect advertising and not getting the word out there. I remember looking around for digital marketing managers and Digital Darts was not our first entry into it. Every single manager that we had before that promised the world and delivered nothing.
We’re all about ROI, and I came across Josh’s website at Digital Darts. I had a meeting with him. I found him to be honest, which obviously is so important. I think after the first month he was already having a positive ROI. Our sales grew considerably and we saw an increase of 535% in revenue in the first four months. I don’t really get into the analytics; I just need to know how much did I spend, how much did I get back, and I did see consistent growth in that first four months.
I think I’ve been with Digital Darts for more than five years now. They’re consistent in their emails, tell you what’s going on. If there was anything that was major wrong that I couldn’t understand, and remember I’m a tea blender, not a Google guru, it was nice to have the Digital Darts guys that you could actually ask a question to. Bondi Beach Tea was lucky in the early stages that we, for whatever reason, we picked them.
On the wholesale front, obviously a big part of our business, sometimes, just from a little Google ad, we’ve landed real big whales; two, three ton orders of tea that have, surprisingly, just came from a Google AdWord.
Would I recommend Digital Darts? Absolutely. I think it’s crazy to try and do Google AdWords yourself. I think it’s just a waste of money. You got no idea. There is quite a bit of work involved. A good entrepreneur knows when to allocate out. You can’t do everything. I think the next five years here at Bondi Beach Tea is gonna, you know, we’re gonna smash it, and it’s good that we know that we can continue to partner with Digital Darts, ’cause I think that as we grow, they have the ability to grow with us and take us to the next level. So, as a partnership, I’ve got no problems with ’em and I don’t see anything changing in the next five years.
🔥 Revenue Boosted by 2100% with Minimal Time Invested from House of Uniforms
Since working with Digital Darts, we’ve seen an increase in revenue of over 2100% and our return on investment is about 700%, which is a phenomenal increase, especially because I didn’t actually personally have to do any work to achieve it.
My name’s Selena Kemp and I’m the founder of House of Uniforms.
We’re a business that creates corporate merchandise and promotional products for businesses, teams, clubs, anyone who wants to get their name on a product or from apparel, we do that here. Having been in business for 18 years, we have done a lot of different types of advertising and marketing. We’ve been using AdWords for about 15 years. But one thing that we found is that we were wasting a lot of our time and resources trying to figure out how it works ourselves. And, as things developed and the platform progressed, it became harder and harder to keep on top of changes in the AdWords framework. ‘
So, it was with great relief that we handed over the Google AdWords to Digital Darts. What that meant for us is instead of spending all of Saturday and Sunday in front of the computer trying to understand what was going on with analytics, we just needed to set our budget, tell them what we were trying to achieve, and let them take care of it.
Each month, we get the report, they tell us what things have worked, what hasn’t worked, and we can refine that for the next month. We’ve been working with Digital Darts for coming up three years now, and we’ve seen an increase in sales transactions of over 2100% and an increase in traffic to our website of over 800%.
So instead of spending our weekends trying to navigate the Hurley Burley world of Google AdWords and all that’s going on in there, we’re able to capitalize on that growth that’s come through and be able to focus on building the business and growing the business.
So as a result of the growth that Digital Darts has provided us, I’ve been able to shift my focus from what my husband calls the digital Garden which is AdWords and everything that comes.in the digital space. And I’ve actually been able to head back to what my love is, my passion for the actual physical garden. So, Digital Garden is now over and back to physical garden.
🔥 Revenue Up 1300% for Etrnl Rings, Beating Owner’s Beliefs and Prior Large Digital Agency
Total revenue increase was 1300%. Total orders up 700%. Average order value is now up 80%. Visitors are up 900%.
My name’s Jamie Nadler. I am the founder of Etrnl Rings. We specialize in rings made of alternative materials, ranging from silicone, tungsten, titanium, wood, and stainless steel as well.
Prior to coming into Digital Darts I was working with another agency. It was a very large brand digital agency. And what I found was the person who manages your account didn’t typically work on your account. So they weren’t understanding all that was going on so there was a lot of in between and back and forth. And you really didn’t find that they were getting the work done that you thought could be done.
So the reason I chose to work with Digital Darts was they were heavily focused on the data and results. A lot of other agencies and bigger agencies I found were very flashy, very showy about, “Hey, we can quadruple your revenue.” But there was really no information or data how they would do that. Just, “Hey, we can do this.”
Average monthly spend has been an increase of 765%. Total ad spent on non-branded traffic has continued to increase 674%. And our total revenue on non-branded traffic has seen increase of 834%, which has been great for us bringing in those new customers.
The biggest benefit since starting to work with Digital Darts is just knowing I have someone there that I can trust. That’s taking control of that ad spend. And I know it’s being spent wisely and profitably.
It’s really exciting that I can just step away and know that it’s in the best possible hands. Just the time it’s freed up as well and not having to worry about it. And knowing that a knowledgeable team that’s keeping up with best practices that I otherwise wouldn’t.
When I first started working with Digital Darts, this company of mine was just a part-time job. Now, it’s a full-time job. I work in this company. By doing that it’s also freed up more time for myself that I’m not having to worry about working two jobs.
I guess what surprised me most about working with Digital Darts is how big the business has grown. I thought there was a limit and ceiling to how far this business could grow and we’ve exceeded it time and time again.
🔥 696% Shopify Growth in 1 Year for Paramedic Shop
Since we started using Digital Darts, we’ve had a really remarkable 696% growth on the year before. We’ve also seen a continual growth in our monthly sales. One month gets taken over by the next. So we’re having record months, month after month. We’re turning up on Google in the top 3. Our ad placements are great. We’re always pleased to see we’re one of the key brands coming up. We’ve seen massive increases in our revenue and we’ve exceeded our expectations in terms of return on investment. Working with Digital Darts has proven to be a great success for us.
Hi, I’m Phil White, owner operator of Paramedic Shop.
Paramedic Shop is a specialty online retailer in the emergency space selling devices and educational materials to help paramedics do their jobs. We took the store from having a retail front to being 100% online. We wanted to make our goods available to paramedics all over the country. I’ve been online and working with Google and Facebook. It said it was really important and we realised the expertise you needed to work in that space and be successful was something we didn’t possess.
I used to work in a corporate environment for many years as a managing director for a multinational company. We had a business of about US$120 million a year and a team of about 200 people. I knew a lot about traditional marketing. Online retailing was a bit of a new domain so working with Digital Darts was great because these guys were experts and they were able to assist us in getting a much better return from what we were putting in. We recommend Digital Darts to someone who is starting their online journey which is a great way to get up and running quick. But also, even if you’re established and you think you know what you are doing. We’ve found with all the online platforms, there’s always something you don’t know. You’ve got to get that expertise on-board. So I’d recommend Digital Darts to someone whether they’re an established business or whether they’re just starting out. They’ll help you get up and running and get the best value for your money out of the online advertising world.
🔥 Operating Since 2012 Yet Got 60% Increase in Revenue From SEO After 9 Months
Since working with Digital Darts, year-to-date, we’ve seen 60% increase in our revenue. Considering we’ve been operating since 2012, and we’re established, that’s massive growth. We’ve also seen our number 1-3 keywords jump significantly higher than what we initially set as a goal. So it was 250 that we wanted, and we’re now at 1500 in 1-3 which is enormous.
I’m Emma Filliponi, E-commerce manager at Blue Bungalow. We are an online fashion retailer established in 2012. We’ve got one retail store and two websites. One for our New Zealand customer base and we’ve got our main site, which services Australia and the rest of the world.
We were working with another SEO agency and we had been recommended Digital Darts to handle the migration from Magento over to Shopify. So that’s when we started working together. But that went so smoothly we saw relatively no drop in sessions at all and actually saw an uplift in revenue post-migration, which was amazing because there are horror stories about people losing their traffic when you don’t handle migration properly. So it was with that experience that we then decided that Digital Darts was really great for us and we’ve been now working together for 12 months.
What I like most is the transparency in terms of what work is actually being done. It’s so common that people would work with a freelance SEO specialist who doesn’t want to have any face-to-face contact and you actually don’t know what’s being done to achieve those results. With Digital Darts, we’re in contact frequently during the month. I know exactly what’s being done. I can see the tangible results. It’s just so easy to work together and there’s no set contact hours that we have to abide by. I would recommend anybody who has a Shopify website who is wanting someone who is open and honest to work with Digital Darts.
The growth that we’ve experienced means that I don’t have to worry about SEO. It’s in safe hands. Every month I brief the direction. That gets done and then when I look at the results, it’s happened without me having to worry about it. Before working with Digital Darts, I was getting quite into the detail of SEO which can take days out of your life. So to not have to have that burden me and take my focus away from the other things is amazing.
🔥 Digital Darts Came Highly Recommended From a Friend—My Revenue Is Up 50%
I’ve been working with Digital Darts for just over a year now. Previous to that I was running Google Ads profitably myself, but with everything else on the to-do list it became very apparent I needed to hand this to someone else.
I was hesitant to give my account to an agency, but Digital Darts came highly recommended from a friend. They specialise in Shopify stores and have access to my store to get the best idea of how to construct campaigns for maximum effect. To start with, profitability was maintained while decreasing ad spend which was great to see. Since then the campaigns have only continued to grow, with revenue up by 50% on Google Ads campaigns since this time last year.
I also had Digital Darts construct our email campaigns. Something which I had been putting off forever was done in quick time and these have also been doing very well for us.
Digital Darts is great to work with and they know their stuff. They continually improve our campaigns, allowing me to focus on growing other parts of the business while travelling.
🔥 700% Revenue Increase Gets Home Shielders Innovating New Products
Ever since we started working with Digital Darts, we’ve seen about a 700% increase in revenue. We’ve seen about a boost of 20% in our average order value.That’s been a game changer for us.
I’m Ishan Soni from Alberta, Canada. I’m the owner of Home Shielders, basically sell pest control products for inside and outside the home. We’re the only smart home technology company that has a Bluetooth app that’s combined with our technology to help get rid of these animals and pests. 100% humane methods that don’t physically harm or torture.
Before I started working with Digital Darts, I had another agency and they had just raised their prices out of nowhere. The bigger challenge for us was the ongoing management of the Google Ads, along with having somebody who actually understood the brand, understood the products.
When I first found out about Digital Darts I actually went through the website and when I read the articles and how things were broken down and how you guys were measuring Google Analytics and the previous past clients results, I just had a good feeling. Ever since my first conversation I was able to very clearly see that, “Okay, these guys are in the crux of Google Ads.” They’ve been running this stuff for years unlike many of the other options available out there.
So we launched in February, 2021 and in the first four months we were able to increase our revenue by 313% and our total transactions increased by about 246%. As of July, 2022 our account has generated about 829% increase in sales. Now we’ve been able to see overall about a seven times increase in our total revenue. Right now, our return on ad spend consistently has been around the 400% average, which for us is amazing.
When Covid hit, I was actually already in about $200,000 in debt. Now we’re able to look at expanding our line of products and we’re only able to do this because we have that extra time and those extra funds to be able to invest back into the growth of this company.
The best part for me has been the communication channel, that’s always been open. The meetings that we can hop on and the discussions that we can have around how to not just optimize the ads, but at the same time I’ve got some amazing suggestions over time for strategy and a tactical piece around, so that’s been super valuable. Right now we’ve been working together for, it’s more than two years now. It’s the level of service which is what I find to be absolute top notch.
If I was recommending to a friend or somebody that I trusted, yeah, I would just say, “Man, go for it. This is the best bang for your buck.” And if you’re selling great products that solve a genuine problem for people, there’s no reason why you can’t scale your business 10x by using the help of Digital Darts.
🔥 x5-6 Revenue Increase for Height Dynamics + The Quality of Leads is Phenomenal
With Digital Darts, the Shopify store has actually become one of our best customers. You know, when I look at the annuals, of getting double the page views, revenue has increased five or six fold, return on ad spend has gone from 150% to 780%. I’d like to say I’ve got my evenings back, but no, now I spend my evenings doing other stuff, not sitting in front of Google Adwords.
So Guy is my name. Founding director of Height Dynamics. We specialise in the compliance space, height and rescue.
The business has been going for 20 years. We started getting serious for the website about two and a half to three years ago trying to grow the business. Getting into that e-commerce space, it’s a lot of hard work. Like I’m good at height safety but digitally, I’ve basically taught myself. Easy to set up but really hard to finesse it. To get it actually working you can throw more money at it and you can get a little bit more traffic but I just felt like I was spending too much money and not getting the return that I needed.
The first thing that I did was reduce my ad spend and use some of that budget to get the Digital Darts guys to give me a hand. In actual fact they suggested I spend even less than what I thought I was going to spend. So spending less than half of what I was spending and just getting great results. I was talking to one of the directors the other day and saying, “I’ve only done this much this month.” And he said, “That’s four times what you were doing six months ago.” I’ve actually come to expect this return now.
With our ads account, it’s enabled us to have a much wider footprint. The quality of leads that I’m getting by email is phenomenal. What we’re getting all over Australia is some good quality leads from people we’ve never heard from.
As a small business, you’re always working inside the business. It’s very hard to extract yourself to work on the business. So it’s great to rely on Digital Darts to do the hard stuff.
As I said earlier, it’s easy to set up a Google account and it’s easy to just throw money at it, but to finesse it and to get it to work and to actually get a return is hard. If I could offer advice to any small business owner, let the experts do that because with Digital Darts, the return that we’ve got has been phenomenal.
🔥 240% Revenue Growth in 18 Months for TrueTrac Working With Digital Darts
We were rudely prompted by COVID-19 in March of 2020, and effectively lost all the trade shows. So it was a definite do or die situation. But since we’ve been using Digital Darts, we’ve actually been able to expand our manufacturing capacity, moved to the larger facility in about 23,000 square feet. And that’s directly as a result of being able to increase and scale the marketing.
My name is Jacob Rhodes, and I’m the owner and operator of Levi Hollow Tools. We operate under the True Trac brand of speciality woodworking tools.
Being a product design engineer type person, I realize that for our company to grow long term, I have to continue coming up with new ideas, which is new products. And so I had to figure out a way to effectively take that off of my plate, and not sacrifice quality.
That’s what led me to start looking for, basically a digital marketing partner. At first, we had set the money aside to bring in a marketing intern. Basically, wire framed out the emails that we wanted and we wanted to do an automated email system.
Actually, had gotten an email from Josh and realized that they had an email automation offering and the pricing worked out to be within about a hundred dollars of what we had set aside for bringing in the marketing intern. And effectively, that’s how we got started with Digital Darts.
I believe it was July of 2020 was when we had stepped right from the email project into dealing with Google Ads. In May of 2021, we started using Digital Darts for our Facebook advertising.
The thing that has impressed me the most with Digital Darts as we’ve been working with them is their consistent professional attitude, the level of knowledge, the level of detail, the structure that they can put into the projects.
The team there effectively being able to set, “Hey, here’s our target for what we want our Google ads, or Facebook, or email marketing” and being able to set that kind of high level expectations and not have to worry about the exact execution. And that has happened absolutely flawlessly with Digital Darts.
Over the last 18 months is roughly what we’ve been working with them. We’ve had around a 240% growth, basically top line revenue. Our number of transactions increased 84.5%, our average order value increased 84.6%, and our overall traffic to the website increased 127%.
If someone were considering Digital Darts and ask my opinion, I would say they have the ability to take what you’re doing currently, and scale it way beyond what your current skillset is.
🔥 Regular 100% Increases Month-On-Month for Wildcat Mini with Google and Facebook Ads
From the very first month that we started working with Digital Darts we saw an increase in our sales. We were regularly getting 100% increases month on month. And then we hit into the Black Friday, Cyber Monday weekend, we saw a 500% increase on the previous year which absolutely blew us away.
What Digital Darts were able to put into the whole process was phenomenal and in many ways, we didn’t have to offer big discounts and sales in order to get the sales that we got.
The marketing efforts, adding that into a quality product has really helped us to get some good runs on the board.
My name is Paul Mergard and I’m one of the owners of Wildcat Mini BMX USA. We sell mini BMX bikes into the USA and Canada.
I felt able to trust the Digital Darts team to set some limits and that worked out really well for us to be able to scale the business and scale our advertising budget but actually get better returns. We’ve actually had a 45% improvement on our return on ad spend.
I was trying to run all the advertising myself and it was getting to a point I just couldn’t keep up with it. I couldn’t keep up with the changes. I couldn’t keep up with the demands. So being able to offload some of that, including the marketing assets, the design work, it actually freed up some time with the family.
There’s enough breadth and depth at Digital Darts that the team has been able to adapt across markets. We were the first BMX company they were working with and the research the team did into that market into the market in the US and Canada has been fantastic.
The thing I love most about working with Digital Darts is the expertise that gets put in, you’ve got different people you can bounce ideas off of, and they’re just a great bunch of people to work with so that’s been a huge a win for us as a team.
🔥 475% Revenue Boost in the First Month for Sandy Feet Australia with Facebook and Google Ads
We’ve been working with Digital Darts for about 2 years now and within the first month we saw a 475% increase in revenue which was amazing. We’ve recently had our record sales month which in that month alone we saw more sales than we had seen in our entire first year with Sandy Feet. So we’ve certainly seen significant growth and it’s turned our business around.
I’m Anita White, and I’m the owner operator of Sandy Feet Australia which is a predominantly children’s swimwear business.
So we started the business about 4 years ago now and the idea was to create stylish swimwear that lasts. One of the things that was critical for us was getting new customers because we know that people love our product once they tried it. When we started the business we were spending a lot of money on social media. We looked at print campaigns. We looked at other digital type campaigns but none of them gave us a return the way that we have received in the work we’ve done with Digital Darts. So this growth means everything for us. I’m not over-stating that we wouldn’t have a small business without this growth.
One of the things I underestimated in starting the small business: we need to pay for everything up front. So every dollar that we were spending was coming out of our own savings. So this allows us now to put more money back into the business to grow in the ways we always wanted to grow.
I would recommend anyone who’s trying to grow their business to use Digital Darts and in fact, I have. Any of my friends who have started small businesses, I always tell them this has been the most influential part of our marketing strategy. They are extremely professional and I can entirely trust them to do what’s best for my brand. They have a huge amount of expertise in Shopify businesses so we don’t have to do everything for the first time ourselves. We’re able to get a head-start from some of their experience and that’s been fantastic.
🔥 In 6 Months, #1-3 Ranking Organic Keywords Increased 420% and Organic Sales Went Up 85%
We had always been skeptical of SEO agencies given their lack of transparency and salesy-ness. However, when we stumbled on Digital Darts’ guide to SEO for Shopify stores, we finally felt like we found true, knowledgeable experts in the field.
Over the course of the 6 months we worked together, our #1-3 ranking organic keywords increased 420%. There was a 85% increase in sales attributed to organic search compared to the previous 6-month period. At its peak month, organic traffic quadrupled.
We loved working with Digital Darts. They were always very responsive, clear in guidance, and extremely patient with all of our questions. Instead of a black box, we felt like we really understood what and why she implemented certain SEO changes, and we feel like we learned a lot about SEO as well. They also took our feedback very seriously and implemented changes to help improve our workflow. I strongly recommend Digital Darts if you’re a business looking for an agency you can trust who will help you not only improve your SEO for your business, but also improve your own SEO acumen for long-term growth.
🔥 x2 Monthly Revenue in 4 months with a 2500% ROAS
One of the things that was a problem for me before I got to work on Digital Darts was the issue of trust. Would they be able to meet up my expectations? That’s not the case with Digital Darts. We worked for the first month. We saw tremendous increase, store revenue grew by 50%. In four months, the revenue increased by 195%. We achieved the month-on-month revenue growth between 20% and 60% growth.
My name is Dickson. I co-own Zit Electronic Store, a site that deals with household electronics specifically for our Nigerian market. The aim of getting this items to the customers within 24 hours. We are solely an online store.
We have been into online marketing. Out of all of them, we discovered that the Google ads had better results, so we channelled our efforts to Google, so we ended up spending so much. We’re getting hits or we’re not getting sales. So at that point, we knew we needed professional help. We actually didn’t use the agencies that we checked initially. We were not convinced that they could make a difference because we already had little experience. That meant that we needed to do business with a firm outside the country.
We took our shot and here we are (chuckles). First things that Digital Darts did were to run ads on all the products on the website. It was gonna be a difficult process. We left it to Digital Darts and they did all of that. Every product became product to be purchased by customers. One of the remarkable things that stood out for Digital Darts was emphasis on measurements. They were always talking about R-O-A-S. In July, for example we had an R-O-A-S of over 2200%, in August, 2500%.
The thing that I love most with Digital Darts is it was very easy to reach out to the team. Yeah, we usually have meetings and they give you insight. I don’t feel far. It’s like an in-house team. You could see the passion. They want us to grow. They treat the business as theirs as well, and each time we have a meeting, thoughts, ideas were implemented as fast as possible, many times within 24 hours after our meeting.
Digital Darts has helped me secure a gold mine and I’m just gonna source for funds to increase the business. I’m grateful for that and I confidently recommend Digital Darts anytime, any day.
🔥 My City Plants Losing Money to 385% Return on Google Ads
I am Juliette, co-founder of My City Plants. We are a New York-based online plant shop specialising in delivering beautiful plants, potted in self-watering planters.
I started working with Digital Darts about four years ago even though we tried running Google Ads by ourselves. Prior to Digital Darts, we had no luck with it and wasted a lot of money.
After Digital Darts took over the management of our Google Ads, we finally started getting positive results from our ad campaigns. And very soon, the results exceeded all of our expectations.
Our lifetime return on ad spend is 385% and we could not be happier. Working with Digital Darts is a pure pleasure as they are true professionals and have very deep knowledge in e-commerce, Shopify, SEO and Google Ads. Each month we get a detailed report and recommendations.
Digital Darts is always, always staying on top of our campaigns and consistently optimises them.
We are very happy to have such a partnership with Digital Darts and look forward to many years of working together. We highly recommend them to any e-commerce business who wants to run profitable Google Ads campaigns.
🔥 Popular Canadian Supplement Chain with 24 Stores Boosts Online Revenue 400%
In order for me to be effective, I need to be communicating value, and working with strategic partnerships like I have with Digital Darts really helps me translate everything that we’re doing and accomplishing into value to sell to the business. It’s been fantastic.
I’m Segun Atwell, founding partner and CTO of HERC’S Digital which runs that nutrition chain of 24 stores across Canada.
Our business model is not…We’re not a franchisee. We have a bunch of stores under one trademark. They’re all licensed business owners. They pay for the license but run the store the way they want. We have a marvellous in-store experience, but how do we connect the dots and showcase that online?
Prior to working with Digital Darts, we had a huge gap in paid search engine marketing. What we were looking for was to partner with an organization that could help us at an enterprise level because we have a unique business model and a brick-and-mortar component. In addition to an ecommerce stack, we wanted someone to actually work with us to help us with strategy more so than just execution and as opposed to bringing someone in-house. Our research led us to a few companies and Digital Darts really hit home with what they were presenting online. And then in speaking with Josh, everything that he said was in line with like what we value as a company and what we were trying to achieve objectively, strategically.
So we had like few months to work together, initially. It really outlined a lot of things that we were missing even from a tech stack. We started seeing results almost instantly. We were able to see a really good increase and a satisfactory rate of conversion for each store.
So we have our most successful store owner is in this town called Red Deer in Midwest Canada, which is very tiny. She was so in tune and she did all of her outreach strategy, traditionally, going out talking to people, having billboards or ads in like sports arenas, and stuff like that. When we started working together, it was very interesting cuz I didn’t need to show her any sort of reports or data for her to understand that this was working. She just noticed the demographics switch right away. She said that all the outreach that she used to do to get to where she does, she does none of it anymore.
So since we launched in February 2021, we’ve seen a 398% increase in revenue. There’s been a 420% increase in transactions, 2068% increase in conversions in Google Ads, and almost double the click-through rate. That’s remarkable given the fact that we had zero web presence when we started this. I’ve never seen a jump like that, so thank you Digital Darts.
One of the biggest benefits is I don’t have to worry about the execution, but you’re probably one of the only vendors that I work with. It actually is less work for me. You’ve helped me change, basically, the thinking and the mindset of the business owners in this chain. The evolution in their thinking was, it’s more than just how much revenue you’re getting from what you’re spending, it’s how you’re converting, where you’re converting. You’ve made my job easy.
What I would tell someone working with Digital Darts is that they put the S in strategic partnership. Even from like a staff augmentation, they’re an extension of your business. They’re great to work with, and you’re gonna get value right from day one.
🔥 Millions in Ad spend Across Multiple Platforms… Digital Darts Freed Up Day-to-Day for Lack of Color Founders
Established in 2011, Lack of Color is a global hat brand known for its great product and marketing.
The e-commerce world has gone through an incredible amount of change in the last 10 years, it can be extremely difficult to navigate through let alone be in a winning position as a business. It’s over-saturated and very competitive in the advert marketing space. I connected with Josh from Digital Darts in 2017—upon meeting him, I knew he had the in-depth knowledge to take us to the next level as a brand.
Digital Darts managed millions in ad spend across multiple platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Google and YouTube. We experienced sharp growth upon starting working together, especially in the first year in which we doubled our revenue.
Working with Josh gave me the confidence I was looking for to be able to ‘step back’ to a degree in this area and let Josh lead the charge, which as an operator of a business is a huge win. Time is all we have in the end. Digital Darts’ work enabled me to free up my day-to-day management of the marketing platforms and focus on driving the business.
I most loved the team’s knowledge and dedication to our projects.
