Maximizing E-commerce Growth: The Katie Loxton Success Story

In an increasingly competitive online landscape, Katie Loxton, a chic UK-based accessories brand known for its personalized handbags, gifts, and vegan leather products, partnered with REBEL for a transformative approach to digital advertising. With a vision to elevate revenue and return on ad spend (ROAS) through performance max campaigns, Katie Loxton aimed to bolster growth while minimizing reliance on low-competition brand terms.

The Challenge

Katie Loxton sought to not only continue its impressive revenue growth from 2022 but to do so with heightened efficiency. The primary objective was to enhance the performance of existing Performance Max campaigns to contribute to overall account growth, aiming for a significant increase in year-on-year revenue without sacrificing campaign efficiency.


Recognizing the unique challenges and opportunities in e-commerce digital marketing, our strategy was centered around optimizing Performance Max campaigns to ensure more efficient account growth, especially beyond generic search activities where costs per click are notably higher. Our initiatives included:

  • Advanced Segmentation and Targeting: By identifying high-volume, high-performing categories, we allocated unique budgets and targets to each, ensuring precise control over campaign performance. This strategy allowed for optimized budget distribution and enhanced campaign outcomes.
  • Enhanced Ad Creatives and Placements: We leveraged the full potential of asset groups by incorporating diverse placements and linking to compelling YouTube videos. Our peak-specific ad copy, enriched with strong sale messaging, was designed to boost ad volume and attract more customers.
  • Data-Driven Audience Insights: Utilizing first-party data enriched our strategy by incorporating in-market audiences, demographic targeting, and keywords, ensuring ads reached the most relevant audiences and maximized ROAS.

Results That Speak Volumes

The comparison of Q4 2023’s Performance Max campaign results with those of Q4 2022 revealed a story of success and efficiency. Katie Loxton experienced:

  • Significant Year-on-Year Revenue Growth: With strategic investments in high-efficiency campaigns, we saw a remarkable increase in revenue, demonstrating the effectiveness of focusing on optimized Performance Max campaigns.
  • Reduced Reliance on Generic Search: By shifting focus to more efficient and targeted campaigns, Katie Loxton lessened its dependence on generic search keywords, which traditionally yield a lower ROAS.
  • Overall Account Efficiency: The strategic enhancements to the Performance Max campaigns not only propelled revenue growth but also improved the overall efficiency of the advertising account, setting a new benchmark for digital marketing in the e-commerce sector.


For digital marketing managers navigating the e-commerce space, the Katie Loxton case exemplifies how a strategic, focused approach to Performance Max campaigns can dramatically improve revenue and ROAS. By prioritizing efficiency, targeted segmentation, and compelling ad creatives, brands can achieve remarkable growth and efficiency, even in competitive markets.

“I was having trouble with transferring from another agency and they helped me through that tricky process, guided me at each step and made it easy to do exactly what I needed to do.

They are also highly efficient and quick to respond to my emails. I look forward to continuing my partnership with them.”
