The holistic OMMAX approach


OMMAX developed a holistic and full-funnel digital strategy covering the Meta channels, Google Ads, TikTok and Pinterest. In addition, a business case with media plan considering channels, campaigns, seasonality, competition and strategic targets was developed. Ongoing, data-based optimization of campaigns, audiences and creatives was also executed to ensure optimized communication along each funnel stage.


To accelerate an increase of visibility in top SERP results for the relevant target group, OMMAX optimized the Google Ads accounts and campaigns to increase ghd's visibility and drive website traffic and revenue. New ad formats, new ad extensions and new campaign formats were set up as well as the definition and implementation of new bidding strategies.


To maximize ghd's brand visibility and to exploit new target groups, firstly, a data-based optimization of ghd's social media setup was executed by implementing state-of the art account and campaign structures and an adaptation of adcopies based on A/B testing and local USP focus. In addition, social proof of influencers like Pamela Reif and Leni Klum was leveraged to drive conversions via Paid Social Media. OMMAX also implemented a prospecting and dynamic retargeting method.


To identify and exploit the current search market and trends to determine ghd's SEO growth potential, content opportunities specific to the German search market were identified. OMMAX also supported the replatforming and strengthening of the backlink portfolio of ghd's website including an ogoing content optimization.
