Apoteket case - Precis Digital


Growth through technology and omnichannel strategy



Apoteket hired Precis Digital early in 2014 since they needed a digital partner to help them grow their paid search activities. Apoteket is the largest pharmacy retailer in Sweden with 370 stores across the country. Apotekets revenue amounted to 19 billion SEK in 2015.


Since the start of the partnership Precis has helped Apoteket grow online revenue with 107 percent with a 52 percent increase in investment. In addition, Precis has helped Apoteket measure how paid search drive visits to physical stores. By using an omnichannel approach to paid search Apoteket are able to optimise their ROI for both the online and the offline world.

Success Factors:

  • Through the implementation of Store Visits tracking in Google AdWords Precis Digital has enabled tracking and evaluation of the total value that is being created by paid search, both online and in physical stores. By understanding the full value of paid search Apoteket are able to understand and improve overall sales from paid search.
  • The use of Precis Digitals technology platform has been a critical factor to success. With thousands of products to advertise and fierce competition, our bid management helped create efficient campaigns and ensures that no opportunities are lost. Precis Digitals technology has ensured that campaign management is scientific and agile.
  • In addition to the above, an important factor for success has been the continuous testing of landing pages, ads, keywords and new functionality from Google. During the past 3 years online competition has increased significantly and the above factors have been key to improving ROI and growing revenue.
  • Apoteket has a multi-faceted marketing strategy spanning many channels such as TV, outdoor, print and digital. Precis Digital and Apoteket has worked together to ensure that paid search is well integrated with more traditional marketing initiatives ensuring that the communication is able to reach consumers across all touchpoints in the purchasing cycle.
