By successfully coordinating and fine tuning the strategy between all marketing channels I delivered a 1.5x return improvement compared to previous Christmas seasons.


The Challenge

Patch is a British indoor and outdoor plant ecommerce website that also sells seasonal Christmas trees.

Every year Patch sells a range of Christmas trees to consumers. The challenge is that Christmas trees are very seasonal in nature peaking in demand over one week around the end of November. Marketing campaigns need to be carefully timed in order to drive enough demand using Facebook Ads and Google Ads during the seasonal period to clear stock. But you need to make sure that you don't overspend and drive too high a Cost Per Purchase.

The Process

Using previous years' data and external data points I mapped week by week projected demand and combined it with stock arrivals (since Christmas trees are a fresh and perishable product) as well as operational delivery capacity.

I planned out each marketing channel and its spend on a daily basis and mapped it out against daily purchase targets. Having this careful plan allowed me to monitor our progress on a daily basis and helped massively on occasions when we missed targets and needed to act quickly.

The Solution

By successfully coordinating and fine tuning the strategy between all marketing channels I delivered a 1.5x return improvement compared to previous Christmas seasons.

More Case Study



Summergrove Halls

Summergrove Halls are a hotel and restaurant based in Cumbria. They had used various other channels in the past to try and drive growth of both room and restaurant bookings but found all were unsuccessful. Summergrove Halls' challenge was their location, whilst adjacent to the Lake District was too far to be a viable selling point and the hotel was functional rather than boutique or luxury. They had a niche audience of walkers, people working on nearby projects and people visiting the nearby hospital.


Main objective was to grow the subscriptions as quickly as possible.
