Buana Joglo’s goals
Buana Joglo was born when Ronny Tangguh, an art enthusiast and businessman from Cepu, Central Java, turned his father’s old teak-wood furniture store into a workshop for joglo restoration. For those unfamiliar with the term, joglo is a traditional architectural structure from Java that features an iconic roof design.
Starting out, Ronny relied on word-of-mouth to sell his joglo buildings. While this got his niche business off the ground, it was clear that his sales were constrained by the limited demand in Cepu. Ronny needed a way to reach beyond his hometown, and he turned to Google Ads to do this.
Buana Joglo’s approach
Ronny built Buana Joglo’s first website, then launched his first Search ads to promote his site. Because Ronny was unsure of how profitable his ads would be, he bought ads conservatively, with a daily budget of US$4.50 (~IDR 60,000).
Buana Joglo’s results
To Ronny’s surprise, his online ads were positively received by viewers all over Indonesia, resulting in 70,000 impressions and more than 1,500 clicks from potential customers every month.
With the new digital marketing campaign, Buana Joglo’s sales increased by more than 50% within the first 6 months. Following that, Ronny’s turnover tripled, with purchases coming from Bintan, Bali, Jakarta, and many other cities. Customer research even revealed that several large Indonesian resorts were inspired to start using joglos after seeing Ronny’s online ads.
Today, Buana Joglo has grown to a team of 25 people, and Ronny’s next steps are to improve his website performance and develop an English website to cater to international clients.
