Challenge Outline:

A university’s continuing education department was looking to promote GRE and GMAT test preparation classes. They enlisted the help of Grenis to more precisely target their intended audience with the goal of achieving a .1% CTR.


The Grenis team developed a comprehensive strategy of search retargeting at the keyword level, category contextual targeting and site retargeting.
