About Mikronis

Mikronis was founded in 2001. Their focus is on PCs, laptops, servers, computer components, computer peripherals, tablets and smartphones.

Today the use of computers is essential in everyday life and it is logical to assume that their use will soon become essential, both in business and in everyday life (ordering online, paying bills, etc.).

Mikronis offers daily support to all their clients, from small to medium companies to private persons, and ensures quality, safety and reliability when it comes to computer and IT equipment.

Why did Mikronis choose Arbona?

Unsatisfied with their results at the time and in order to upgrade and improve online sales, Mirkonis came to Arbona. They recognised our results and realised we are a partner they can trust. Since the early days of our cooperation, we worked towards understanding and anticipating their needs.

Mikronis and Arbona set the foundation for their cooperation by defining new goals. It was agreed that Arbona would take over Google Ads, Facebook and SEO in order to improve Google ranking.

Important metrics that needed to be achieved in order to get better results were:
  • conversion rate - the primary goal was to convert as many visitor on the website into customers,
  • last click online purchase - sales that can be directly linked to sales channels like Google Ads and social media advertising.
Ultimately, it was most important to achieve as high a revenue as possible.

Gordana Puhelek from Mikronis points out: “Past experience, dissatisfaction and results achieved by other agencies were not up to our standards. For that reason we decided to partner with a new digital agency - we chose Arbona. Arbona provides us with up-to-date reports, we constantly get valuable advice and suggestions on new opportunities and possibilities. Campaign results are much better and so is our satisfaction. I believe trust and good communication are the foundation of any cooperation and with Arbona we get it all.

Everyday experts at Arbona use their knowledge to explore market opportunities, enhance customer experience every step of the way, improve online sales and reduce total marketing expenses.

The road to success alongside Arbona

Detailed analysis and keyword research had to be done in order to achieve set goals and to live up to the expectations of Mikronis. Detailed keyword research allowed for a better connection to customers and their needs, as well as familiarization with queries relevant to Mikronis that are inputted into Google. Keyword analysis revealed the most commonly searched for words and terms. Including those words and terms into ads, adding ad extensions and highlighting visible CTA (call to action) clickable buttons led to the success of the campaign.

The results were noticeable very soon. There was improvement in relevant metrics, including those predefined as primary goals of the entire partnership.

In 2019 Google Ads campaigns yielded 95,43% more last click purchases and the budget was 26,90% lower than in 2018. When comparing 2020 and 2019, there were 34,51% more last click online purchases and the budget was 11,20% lower.

The conclusion is quite straightforward. Year after year Google Ads search and display networks showed noticeable growth - with every new year expenses are lower and results are better.

By comparing two previous years (January 1st to July 29th 2018 & January 1st 2019 and July 29th 2019) one can see an obvious increase in the number of sessions.

Brand keywords, display ads and remarketing targeting customers that have already visited the Mikronis website raised brand awareness as well.
