Wpromote Announces First-Ever Private Equity Case Study with Facebook

Wpromote, the nation's leading independent digital marketing agency, announced the launch of the first-ever Facebook case study focused for the private equity industry. The case study demonstrates the success that Brentwood Associates, an LA-based private equity firm, has seen with two of their portfolio companies. An innovative combination of advanced Facebook strategies and customer lifetime value (LTV) analysis drove exceptional results for each brand.

Wpromote is the industry leader of profit-driven marketing. The agency worked closely with Brentwood Associates portfolio brands Soft Surroundings and J. McLaughlin to implement growth strategies by applying LTV analysis to Facebook. Wpromote's strategy included leveraging custom audience tool capabilities in Facebook's Ads Manager in conjunction with LTV audience segmentation to develop sophisticated targeting strategies that drove profitable new customer acquisition.

Using these strategies, Soft Surroundings and J. McLaughlin saw a 40% and 76% higher return on ad spend, respectively, using value-based lookalike audiences. Facebook has recognized these impressive results and the immense impact of combining their sophisticated tools with an innovative profit-driven approach.

"Wpromote's use of advanced digital marketing strategies on our platform clearly drives measurable results for their private equity portfolio brands. They are also the first to market with our advanced attribution solutions to accomplish measurable results in the private equity space," said Michelle McKelvey of Facebook. We are excited about the future impact Facebook will have on the private equity industry and look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Wpromote."
