    • SEM Strategies 1. SEARCH ENGINE 2. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (SEO) ADVERTISING (SEA) Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Search Engine Advertising (SEA) - Lowest acquisition cost - Quick Setup Advantages - Long Term Strategy - Perfect for Generic Keywords - Perfect for search terms - Perfect for Punctual/Promo Actions composed of 2 or 3 words - Reach a lot of search engines Disadvantages - Takes 2-3 months to go live - Some keywords might be expensive - Limited when too much competition - Time consuming - Might capture less traffic than SEO
    • SEO recognized as more profitable than SEA Source: JupiterResearch Executive Survey, August 2005 (US Search Marketers only)
    • SEA (mini-)Case Study: Coradirect.be 10/13/2006
    • Situation During the 2nd Quarter of 2006, Cora planned to launch ‘Coradirect.be’, a web site aiming to sell top-of-the-range electro-domestic products. This e-commerce site has a particular way of working: • The client selects one of the special promotion products and requests Coradirect’s best price offer. • His/her Cora retailer informs him/her of the unbeatable price, product availability and the delivery period of the selection. • The client has then to confirm his/her reservation and makes an appointment to pickup the order at the Cora store of his/her choice. Emakina, their web agency, contacted Extenseo (Emakina SEM partner) to see how to best promote this atypical website and quickly generate sales.
    • Challenges Coradirect.be was looking for immediate results as soon as the website would be launched. Available resources (time and budget) were very limited... The e-shop would only allow in the test phase to book and pickup products in the Cora store of Woluwe (Brussels).
    • Solution • Search Engine Advertising (SEA) has directly be selected as this strategy is perfect for: – quick campaign launch – low involvement from the client – easy budget control • Google AdWords has of course been chosen as advertising network as it: – covers 90-95% of the search engine traffic in Belgium – allows Geotargeting on a regional level
    • Results, ROI & Findings Avg. Conversion Cost / Month Impressions Clicks CTR Avg. CPC Cost Transactions Position Rate Transaction May 2006 169.688 4.593 2,70% €0,07 €331,55 4,5 65 1,42% €5,10 Jun 2006 183.660 5.210 2,80% €0,04 €210,22 5,1 68 1,31% €3,09 Jul 2006 162.043 4.757 2,90% €0,04 €197,07 5,1 44 0,92% €4,48 Aug 2006 168.099 4.700 2,80% €0,04 €188,50 5,2 70 1,49% €2,69 Sep 2006 163.113 4.021 2,50% €0,04 €166,64 5,5 27 0,67% €6,17 Totals 846.603 23.281 2,70% €0,05 €1.093,98 5,1 274 1,18% €3,99 • Even with a maximum cost-per-click of 0,05 EUR in a highly competitive sector: – the position was ‘good’ (avg. position 5,1) – the click-through (2,7%) can be considered as ‘very good’ (for such positions). • For a media budget of 1.093,98 EUR spent on Google AdWords, the 5-months campaign generated: – 23.281 qualified visitors (= 0,05 EUR per visitor) – 274 highly qualified leads (= 3,99 EUR per lead) Which other strategy can generate such results for about 1.000 EUR media budget?!?
    • SEM (SEO+SEA) Case Study: Ethias.be 10/13/2006
    • Situation Ethias Bank & Insurance is the 2nd insurer in Belgium, with more than 1.000.000 customers. In 2005, more than 1.000.000 quotes have been calculated on Ethias.be, leading to 39.000 new contracts through the web. Although they launched their first website in 1996 and won the “Inside Internet e-commerce Awards” in 2003, Ethias hadn’t any experience yet in Search Engine Marketing. Looking to complete their e-marketing strategy, Ethias selected in June 2003 Extenseo as their SEM agency, based on Extenseo’s reputation and its experience in the insurance sector.
    • Challenges • Ethias Bank & Insurance has a lot of products to promote, leading to hundreds of keywords to manage. • The Ethias.be domain name had not that much external links since the brand change (OMOB/SMAP -> Ethias) in December 2003. • A new site had to be launched end 2005, involving multiple teams: – Marketing (Ethias) – Design & IT (NRB) – SEM agency (Extenseo)
    • Solution • Chosen to: – continue with SEO (good results achieved in the past), – start with SEA (still unknown to Ethias). • SEO approach for the new site: – optimize the new site structure since the beginning – optimize every (relevant) internal page of the new site (HTML Templates, Copywriting, Internal Links, etc.) in collaboration with the different teams, mainly by giving Training’s & Consulting, and a strict follow-up on the project. • SEA: – Test with a time-limited (2 months) Google AdWords campaign.
    • Results > SEO Positions in Google.be • On the 160 strategic keywords/pages, more than 100 keywords are now ranked on the 1st page, with most of them in the top 3 results! September 13, 2006
    • Results > Global Traffic • Since the collaboration with Extenseo, the search engine traffic evolved from 1-4% to 13%-17% of the global traffic. Ethias.be: Traffic (Global & Search Engines) 400.000 350.000 300.000 250.000 Visitors Total Visitors 200.000 SEO+SEA Visitors 150.000 100.000 50.000 0 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07
    • Results > Search Engine Traffic • In addition to SEO, the SEA campaigns: – allow to get visibility on competitive terms, – reinforce the brand visibility on well ranked SEO keywords. Ethias.be: Search Engine Traffic (Split SEO/SEA) 60.000 50.000 40.000 Visitors SEA Visitors 30.000 SEO Visitors 20.000 10.000 0 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07
    • Results > SEO Traffic • Depending on the life of the site and the level of optimization, the SEO traffic can quickly evolve. Ethias.be: SEO Traffic Results of the in-depth 45.000 optimization of the new site. 40.000 Results of a major 35.000 re-optimization 30.000 Visitors 25.000 20.000 Results of the 1st optimization 15.000 10.000 5.000 New site launched 0 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07 09 11 01 03 05 07
    • Results > SEA Traffic • Q2/2005: launch of the 1st Google AdWords campaign (2 months period) • Q2/2006: launch of a permanent & global Google AdWords campaign Ethias.be: SEA Traffic 16.000 14.000 12.000 10.000 Visitors 8.000 6.000 4.000 2.000 0 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 /0 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08
    • Results > ROI The power of search engines was initially underestimated by some persons at Ethias… but results are in fact impressive. • 5% of the Ethias e-marketing budget are dedicated to SEM (SEO+SEA). • More than 100 strategic keywords are ranked on the 1st page. • Search engines generate 13-17% of the Ethias.be global traffic. • 300% increase of the search engine traffic in 1 year, 500% in 2 years. • More than 40% of the SEA visitors request an online quote. • SEO & SEA have: – the lowest acquisition cost – & the highest conversion rates among the different e-marketing techniques used by Ethias.
    • Findings & Conclusion • Google generates 94% of the Ethias.be search engine traffic. • Search engines generate today 13-17% of the global traffic, with SEO generating 3 times more traffic than SEA. • SEO and SEA are 100% complementary. • SEO is at least 2 times more profitable than SEA. • SEO Link building takes time, but is really worth it! • Due to the very good results, Ethias will continue to invest time & budgets in the coming months on its SEM Strategy.
