About the company

The Sak has always been about more than bags. Each style captures its love of handcrafted, textural designs made from sustainable materials rooted in both traditional and reinvented techniques.


After The Sak rebranded in 2021, they were looking for the best way to promote their new aesthetic with current customers and reach a new target audience of women ages 30 and over.


With new branding to share, The Sak turned to responsive display ads, which use machine learning to speed up the design and iteration process to deliver engaging display ads faster than ever across websites, apps, YouTube, and Gmail.

Through partnership with their digital agency and strategic consulting firm, January Digital, The Sak had experienced success with responsive display ads in the past, helping drive interest through engaging formats. This time, responsive display ads allowed January Digital and The Sak to re-engage website visitors with their updated brand image across millions websites at a low cost. With the help of Display campaigns and new creatives, they were able to increase engagement and online conversions from their new target audience.


Since using responsive display ads in October 2021 to reflect The Sak’s new branding, they have increased in-platform conversions by 700% and driven consumers to their site at a lower cost with a cost-per-click decrease of 69%. The Sak also saw a 205% increase in impressions with a 976% increase in click-through-rate.

With responsive display ads, The Sak benefited from the scale of automation while protecting their brand guidelines.
