The challenge

Norman Records were bidding manually on Google Shopping, taking up precious time

Prior to working with us here at Bidnamic, Norman Records were implementing their Google Shopping strategy manually, and at a slow rate. They were looking for a solution that would save them the time and hassle of handling Google Shopping in-house and maintain a positive ROAS.

As a local business, Norman Records wanted to make an investment in our expertise and management, which would lead to further growth of their business with minimal involvement needed on their part.
