Real-World Results from Rakuten Advertising

Rakuten Advertising & Meli Melo

Integrated Marketing Services

Founded in 2005, Meli Melo is a British luxury handbag and accessories brand. Meticulously crafted in Italian leathers which are renowned for their distinctive shapes and impeccable construction. Due to an increasingly competitive market, Meli Melo’s growth had started to decline. With a need to be smarter with its marketing budget, Meli Melo looked to Rakuten Advertising to develop an integrated and agile marketing strategy across affiliate, display and search, with the aim to achieve 20% growth YoY in sales while maintaining a healthy return on ad spend (ROAS).

Thanks to this approach, Meli Melo’s performance and growth continue to soar, delivering results and significant changes for the business:

  • Top-line revenue for Q4 increased by +34% YoY
  • Revenue from channels managed by Rakuten Advertising grew to 69%, +176% YoY
  • A ROAS of £8 for every marketing pound spent with Rakuten Advertising during Q4 2018

“We partnered with Rakuten Advertising at a crucial time for our brand when our ecommerce revenues were falling. We have always been a very ROI focused business and this integrated marketing strategy has exceeded my expectations, delivering a unified approach to performance marketing which was the absolute goal I had in mind.” – Doug Ker, CEO of Meli Melo
