[Case Study]: Our Digital Marketing Strategy Drives Profitable Traffic for Portrait Innovations

Background:Portrait Innovations - Digital Marketing Strategy

Portrait Innovations is a brick and mortar photography business delivering a wonderful in-studio experience. The company is facing downward pressure from online companies like Tiny Prints, Shutterfly and countless other online photo and print competitors.


Portrait Innovations approached Mindstream Media to find a way to effectively and efficiently (based on limited ad spend) drive quantifiable and profitable traffic into their photography studios during the competitive 2018 Easter season.


Mindstream Media employed a radical shift in historical campaign structure, digital media mix and targeting to fine-tune audience message strategy and overall creative design. These changes led to increased interest from new customers and most importantly action from online consumers to drive appointments.

Campaign details:

This specific effort ran for 76 days, between Easter and Mother’s Day. The campaign leveraged a mix of the following paid media solutions:

  • Facebook Advertising
  • Paid Search Ads
  • Email Design and Distribution
  • Yelp Paid Ads
  • Programmatic Display and Retargeting
  • Landing Page Design and Execution


Mindstream Media’s digital marketing strategy and media mix proved very effective for Portrait Innovations:

  • 8-to-1 ROI: Every $1 spent on the marketing campaign drove nearly $8 of matched back revenue for our client.
  • Increased conversions: The campaign garnered more than 25,000 booked appointments and 2,800 inbound phone calls.
