THE CHALLENGES

Before working with Finch, L9’s limited channel success created eCommerce FOMO. This fear of missing revenue within their sales funnel combined with untapped growth opportunities brought them to Finch.

To realize their goals of expanding their channel footprint and opening their existing sales funnel to new opportunities - L9 needed a true multichannel strategy that integrated their siloed data and an agnostic partner to fill knowledge gaps within their in-house team.

THE GOALS
  • Expand Funnel & Increase Sales
  • Increase Channel Footprint
  • Increase Domain Expertise
  • Access Transparent Data
  • Integrate Siloed Data & Expertise
THE FINCH SOLUTION
With the Finch platform and domain experts, L9 built a customized and adaptable cross-channel growth plan.
The plan included measurable KPIs, tasks, and trackable milestones attached to integrated reporting dashboards that deliver granular insights. How the Finch Platform enables Avery to take their digital marketing efforts in-house:
  • Understand customer conversions within their funnel
  • Highlight the impact of each channel, and identify the most efficient platforms and campaigns
  • Allocate budgets across channels based on real-time reporting and insights
With dedicated Customer Success Managers and an arsenal of Finch domain experts, L9 was able to seize previously missed opportunities, expand their channel footprint, and benefit from a truly channel-agnostic approach that allowed them to replicate their success across platforms.
"Finch improved our existing Google and Bing search campaigns greatly and helped us expand into Amazon advertising. With the addition of Facebook in the past year, we have also seen growth in that realm and hope to lean more into social going forward.”
Peter Ruppert - Director of Ecommerce, L9 Sports
