With a large product catalogue and just one person to manage it all, staying up-to-date across marketplaces and digital marketing channels had become unsustainable for ASICS. The e-commerce team needed a new way to target shoppers and drive demand.
ASICS teamed up with the ChannelAdvisor Managed Services specialists for guidance on new marketplaces and digital marketing strategies.
The sports footwear brand reported that it experienced its most successful Cyber 5 holiday season ever.
In fact, demand more than doubled, and year-over-year growth swelled by 150%

Setting new records
For this multi-brand clothing company, it was becoming increasingly important for consumers to see in-store stock information the moment they searched for products on Google. But simply launching local inventory ads wasn’t enough. To make those ads effective, stores needed a reliable way to feed timely, accurate data to the search engine.
While working with ChannelAdvisor Managed Services for Digital Marketing, the company turned to feed management — a specialized tool that transforms raw product data to meet the exact specifications of Google and other channels. They also tested different smart bidding strategies, expanded Showcase Ads and worked closely with Google on best practices.
According to the company, Cyber 5 sales for both of the company’s brands skyrocketed. Compared to sales from the previous year, revenue increased:
Global Clothing Brand
International Apparel Merchant
Increasing YoY revenue

The company reports that its year-over-year revenue increased nearly 66% during Cyber 5.
