Case Study

Scaling ella+mila from $1,500/day to $11,000/day in profitable ad spend.

ella+mila is a prestige beauty brand that specializes in high quality nail polish that’s free of harmful ingredients.

While they were doing well in wholesale (Target, CVS), ella+mila struggled to acquire customers online. They were spending $60,000+ per month, but it wasn’t profitable. And their target metric — new customer return on ads spend (NCROAS) — was just 77%.

Then in May 2022, ella+mila started working with us at the Smart Marketer Agency, where we quickly established 2 goals: 1) Get acquisition profitable, and 2) Increase ad spend.

To do that, we started with an in-depth audit of their ad account. This helped us identify 2 opportunities for increasing profitability and spend.

First, we mapped out several new customer avatars to help us reach untapped audiences. Then, we created new offers based on these avatars. These 2 steps assured we were getting the right offers in front of the right customers.

Lastly, we completely overhauled the ad account structure. We increased the number of ad sets, and switched focus to ABO over CBO. This allowed us to scale the budget consistently, while building a durable ad account that wouldn’t suffer from big dips in spend when a single campaign fatigued.

By February 2023, we were up to $11,000/day in profitable spend at a 145% NCROAS.

While normally you have to choose between increasing spend or ROAS, we were able to do the (almost) impossible: 

We scaled the budget while boosting profitability.

What Clients Say

We’ve gone from a $5 million run rate to maybe a $15 million run rate in 3–4 months…

They’ve been professional, they’ve been very proactive, great communication…

As someone who’s gone through 3 or 4 agencies in the past and have canned them all because they were just terrible, this has been a great breath of fresh air…

I honestly couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
