Harnessing the Power of Microsoft to Grow Client Revenue

Microsoft Partner Awards Winner 2023


February 12, 2024, Seattle, WA — Logical Position is named Channel Partner of the Year by Microsoft Advertising. The recognition is complemented by top honors in six additional categories, including the work done here between Logical Position (LP) and Microsoft Advertising, in partnership with Satellite Phone Store.

Satellite Phone Store (SPS) allows people to communicate in nearly any circumstance by selling and renting satellite phones, terminals, and internet connection services. The company relies on e-commerce sales for transactional items, alongside lead-generation campaigns for high-consideration purchases that require a longer buying journey. Consequently, conversions were a critical performance measure.

Answering the Call

SPS started working with LP in 2017, before electing to take their pay-per-click (PPC) program in-house in 2022 due to management changes. They quickly discovered that optimizing their PPC campaigns was difficult. With performance suffering, they returned to LP for help. Fueled by our strong partnership with Microsoft, LP was able to reverse a dip in performance and increase in conversions, contributing to a significant lift in sitewide revenue.

Tips For Achieving Similar Results

Diversify your advertising budget in search of new audiences. Being platform agnostic is to your advantage, when stronger gains are attainable.

Produce a reliable attribution model before spending budget on advertising. Knowing how you’re obtaining new business is more valuable than the business itself.

Escalate issues with a trusted partner to expedite cross-platform solutions. Timing can be everything in marketing, so trusted experience can be mission critical in a crisis.

Consider user-experience throughout the buying journey. Even the slightest irritant can prevent a transaction from converting.

Leverage integrations like CallRail to ensure you have the full picture of data and are optimizing toward the most qualified traffic.
