Worked on the ASOS account for over the peak Christmas 2013 period. I was tasked with managing and helping grow the ASOS account. The role involved:

  • Used Google Analytics, Marin and internal ASOS software to manage campaigns, track data & create actionable insights to achieve business objectives
  • Budget: £500,000/month
  • Decreased CPA by 15% to £2.35
  • Supervised two AEs and an intern to execute regular & one-off tasks including SQRs, stock audits and campaign restructures.
  • Markets: UK, US, France, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, China, Netherlands and Belgium. +3 global accounts targeting the English, Spanish and French speakers from markets outside the above 11.
  • Oversaw 600 campaigns, which included 5,000+ ad groups & 300,000+ keywords

Success was measured by meeting our monthly revenue and conversion targets, which we hit 95% of the time over the Christmas season. We also had a steady growth, through optimizing generic and brand + designer campaigns, during my tenure as we created efficiencies within our department to allow us to handle more campaigns and increased budgets.

A good Christmas for ASOS, with the company reporting sales up by 15% on 2013.
– UK sales rose by 27% and international by 5%.
– ASOS’s websites attracted 98m visits during December 2014, compared to 87m in December 2013.
– As of December 31 2014 it had 9.1m active customers, of which 3.7m were located in the UK and 5.4m were international.
