The scoop

The gold standard in high-performance, durable and affordable coolers

Since 1962, Engel has been the pioneer in cooling & portable refrigeration, providing the best in high-performance, durable, and affordable coolers to anyone. Their catalogue spans every conceivable type of cooler and more: hard, soft, and drybox coolers, live bait coolers, and even portable fridges and freezers, as well as a whole host of tupperware and accessories.

Our team first met and got to know Engel ecommerce director, Chris Holloway, at Etail West - an ecommerce expo in California - in early 2020. After some serious meetings (followed by a number of drinks) Engel Coolers onboarded with Bidnamic at the onset of a global pandemic, which would restrict the entire population to their homes for months at a time.

Engel Coolers were able to make their product available to medical professionals to store and provide vaccines.

The challenge

Time intensive and poor performance led Chris to growth-curbing Smart Shopping

Engel Coolers were struggling to achieve profitable returns, or to scale their activity on Google Shopping. With hundreds of SKUs, bid management had become too time intensive, and campaign performance remained poor. 

In a bid for success with product listing ads, the team turned to Google Smart Shopping. Despite its automated bidding, Engel Coolers were unable to retrieve performance data from their account or understand where their SKUs were displayed. This data “blackboxing” was proving to be a blocker to Engel Coolers, and their goal of scaling the account through the channel.

Chris was looking for a way to make Google Shopping a profitable platform and a key channel in their ecommerce approach, measuring success by the volume of profitable conversions made.

Choosing Bidnamic has helped us totally transform our Google Shopping campaigns and grow our online approach during the global pandemic. Henry and Ethan are supportive and knowledgeable: having Bidnamic run our Search Ads and Bing as well has freed up our time as a business.
