Gino's Panel & Paint logoClient – Gino’s Panel & Paint

Gino’s Panel and Paint are a local auto repair centre specialising in insurance claim accident repairs for the south west metropolitan area.

In November 2017 Living Online built a new website and created a new brand strategy. The creative and language used in the advertising, content, and metatags, pushed the identified USPs out to market that “We Get You Back On The Road Faster!” with their rapid repair technology. Also integral was the key messaging of “We Care”, distinguishing them from the negative perception of some of the competition in the local panel beating industry. The objectives for the new Gino’s website were originally to increase brand awareness and highly qualified insurance claim repair bookings.

A multi-channel marketing strategy was employed to reach the local market at multiple touchpoints, all serving to generate relevant traffic and support the SEO  and local search strategy. We have achieved excellent results in creating sustainable and qualified lead generation at the desired level, as well as building their brand awareness among their local target market. As a result of this, Gino’s has also become a finalist in the “Digital Excellence Awards Category 2018 of the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards 2018”.

2. Best Use Of Search – eCommerce – Finalist

Recognition of a campaign that has successfully enhanced the visibility of a website working in eCommerce.

Client – Wardrobe Fashion

Wardrobe Fashion are an online reseller of branded clothing for stylish women, focusing on the Australia/NZ market.

Our objective was to help a company who had previously only focused on their four brick-and-mortar stores best utilise the online space to turn their e-commerce efforts into a revenue making machine.

Our strategy was to use search to drive our target audience to the website and convince the target market to either purchase immediately or become newsletter subscribers, as we knew from research and data analysis that their email subscribers had a high customer lifetime value. To do this, we focused on search and highly targeted messaging which resonated with the audience. We have generated a fantastic ROAS through both first-click and last click attribution and to date have produced a ROI (media and consulting spend) of 566%.
