COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

All people who've come and gone have seen some sort of germ infestation take over their generation. So whether it's the bubonic plague or cholera; Corona is making the rounds this time.

And while we don't have control of what is happening externally, we do have control of how we can manage things internally. 

Here's a guide on how to keep your immunity up this season!

Build your immunity!

 

Drink a lot of lemon and water as Vitamin C is extremely effective in fighting off germs. And viruses cannot survive in an environment high in Vitamin C. 

Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Rinse the skins nicely and enjoy nutritious meals. As a good rule of thumb, the more colourful the fruit or veggies, the more are the nutrients.

Lemon, honey, ginger and a pinch of turmeric in it, make an excellent immunity boosting beverage. Drink up!

 

 

Soak up the Sun!☀️

 

The World Health Organisation suggests 5-15 minutes of casual sun exposure a few times a week. And this is more than sufficient to keep Vitamin D levels topped up!

This one small action plays a crucial role in immunity and can help protect against a list of ailments like asthma, depression, heart disease and cancer.

Be like these puppers and get your daily dose of natural booster!🐶

Does Google Ads cannibalise on organic traffic ? A study with Google Analytics data for ecommerce

A primary query that most clients pose is – “How much traffic will Google Ads thieve away from organic channels in general.”
This happens to be a major concern for most business owners. Why pay for
something you can get done for free?!
We aimed to figure out that very same puzzle. (You’re welcome!)


Is Google Ads, the Robin Hood to other organic channels or does it take away from them and keep to itself?
That is the question!
To complete a successful attempt at understanding this enigma, several ecommerce accounts were put through Google’s Analytics grinder.
We will be expanding on the results in this document.


Bear in mind though, we are talking about accounts that have had more than one touchpoint.
So, if a client were to hypothetically, to punch in the URL to your portal and purchase some of your ‘merch’, (nice bubble) you aren’t going to find them in the reports we’re touching upon in this article.


The most common path taken by clients who utilize Google Analytics is that of paid search x2.
In layman speak, if John/Jane Doe were to click on a paid ad twice before making a purchase, it would account for 2.5% of the total sales, during that respective period.


The second most common path to conversion is that of a client approaching your business directly.
As in, if Mr. or Ms. Doe stumbled upon your website by way of a google shopping ad, and upon learning of your company’s existence, were to come back to said portal and make a purchase – this would result in a ‘direct sale.’
Although paid search x2 amounts to more conversions, paid search (direct) accounts for higher revenues.
By how much you ask?


3.4% of the total sales.
And, through Google Analytics, this is flagged as a direct conversion, irrespective of the fact that the client first found your business through a paid source.
