Low Sales

They needed more ticket sales across all locations.

Monthly budget

Low Budget

In the past, their previous agency was targeting general terms and had poor traffic quality. Therefore, they had a small budget available for marketing.

Technical seo

Wrong Tracking

Their niche was not identified properly and they had incorrect conversion tracking.

Angelika Film Center has multiple cinemas across major metropolitan areas, like San Diego, Chicago, and New York City. This is far more than just a regular movie theater. With food and beverages offerings that go well beyond traditional concession stand faire, Angelika Film Center makes going out to see a show an event worth centering the night around.

While they do show some current new releases, they also have showtimes for classics, family favorites, artistic films, and more. They do show current releases but none of the big blockbuster films, mainly independent movies with less promotion, meaning it was even harder to find and capitalize on their niche. 

The theater industry has been in decline ever since streaming became popular, so a major marketing push was required. As this theater chain isn’t your average movie theater, it needed to market itself correctly. This hadn’t been done properly in the past, which caused much of the client’s pain before coming on board with On The Map.

Campaign data

Click-Through-Rate (CTR)

Click-Through-Rate (CTR) is a metric used to measure the effectiveness of paid ads on Google. It represents the percentage of people who click on an ad after seeing it in search engine results pages (SERPs). A higher CTR indicates that an ad is relevant and engaging to users, which then leads to more traffic to a website and often better ad placement and lower costs in pay-per-click advertising campaigns.

Our PPC specialists went above and beyond for Angelika Film Center, and the results proved it. For a non-brand campaign, one focused on targeted keywords, the sought-after metric is above 5%. In this case, we have 9.80%. The branded PPC campaign has a CTR of 45%! This means of the people who searched for a branded term and saw their ad, nearly half clicked on it. 

Collectively, Angelika Film Center has a very healthy CTR of 36.41%. We were able to achieve this CTR by using A/B split testing of ads, audiences, and extensions to grab the users attention. We worked diligently to find what worked, which data to prove it instead of just making guesses.

Conversion Value/Cost

This metric tells you an analytics-based number to determine how much one earns for every dollar put into ads. Angelika Film Center has a conversion value/cost of $19.27. This is outstanding! That means for every dollar they spent, they got $19.27 back. If this sounds like a phenomenal return on investment, you’re absolutely right! 

Other Digital Marketing Strategies Implemented

Our digital marketing team focused on other initiatives outside of PPC. Google My Business (GMB) is crucial for businesses of all industries because it enhances their online visibility and helps them connect with local customers, which studies prove are more likely to convert. It provides a prominent and easily accessible business listing in Google Search and Maps, offering essential information like hours of operation, contact details, reviews, and photos. This presence not only improves customer trust but also boosts local SEO rankings, making it easier for potential customers to find and engage with the business, ultimately driving foot traffic and increasing ticket sales.

We incorporated Angelika Film Center’s GMB profile into their digital marketing efforts, making sure to keep it up to date with new releases and special events happening at their theaters. Not only does Google like to see the profile regularly updated, Angelika Film Center’s audience does too!
