The Problem

BLT Direct had the frustrating challenge of managing a HUGE catalogue of products

Having such a large offering of products (over 10,000) on a global scale brings its own unique challenges.

One of the biggest struggles was ensuring that their catalogue of products was gaining visibility and becoming profitable. The lighting sector has tighter margins and seasonality factors to take into account. BLT needed a solution that could respond to market trends in real time and that could take into account all of the different variables that can impact conversions. The challenge was to do this without blowing their budget on unprofitable terms, which is very easy to do on Google Shopping.

Google Shopping is a very time-consuming platform, especially when paired with a high number of products to manage. BLT needed a solution that could handle Google Shopping efficiently for every product and SKU, without taking precious time up from other important jobs.
