From the 15th Annual Shorty Awards

Transforming an iconic Australian fashion brand into an e-commerce revenue monarch

Entered in Retail & E-Commerce


Sacha Drake was seeking a dedicated team of digital marketing professionals that would work on both a proactive and concurrently reactive basis to suit the needs of their business, facilitate new design drops, seasonal changes and provide complete transparency as their trusted advisors. The main campaign objective was to increase SEO, Social and Google Ads online revenue by 50% YoY. The client had a retainer of $5,000 pm + GST. This retainer included the use of Search Engine Optimisation, Paid Search Management and Social Media Ads (Facebook & Instagram). TheHypeSociety aims to achieve a 30% net margin on all client campaigns.

Aggressive Growth Objectives: 
Sacha Drake has already experienced 27% growth YoY before starting with TheHypeSociety. We had been tasked with utilising the exact same retainer allocation and also the same media budget to essentially double the outcome of the previous agency.

Strategy and Execution

TheHypeSociety chose an omni-channel approach for Sacha Drake to ensure we were capturing new audiences that may not be familiar with the brand through SEO, Google ads, and top-of-funnel social media advertising, whilst being able to retarget existing customers and thread new customers through the funnel towards making a purchase.

Sacha Drake target audience: Australia-wide location targeting, women only, ages 35+, interested in fashion, shopping, eventswear, and designer brands. We aimed to increase the e-commerce sales for Sacha Drake by utilising various combinations of the above targeting to tap into audiences that would show a higher purchase intent for a designer fashion brand.

In a volatile and competitive market one of our key challenges was to manage limited inventory, many states being locked down for covid-19, seasonal fashion changes, events and corporate wear demand fluctuations and retail sales targets being pushed into ecommerce sales channels during slower retail times.
