Spanish company Intertaping sells neuromuscular bandages online. To expand its business into new markets outside of Spain, Intertaping turned to Google AdWords, resulting in 45% of its current turnover now coming from abroad.
Founded in Valencia, Spain in 2011, Intertaping is a small company with an eye on the wider, global marketplace.
As an online business selling neuromuscular bandages, a popular product for the treatment of athletes’ sports injuries, the opportunity was there for Intertaping to expand outside of their home country. A year after launch, with sales doing well in Spain, Intertaping partnered with Google to expand their international reach.
Google suggested AdWords, offering search, display and video advertising, to help Intertaping cost-effectively locate and target relevant audiences in their new growth markets. The results were fast and easily measurable. In the first two years of working with Google AdWords, Intertaping had generated €70,000 and experienced considerable growth in countries including Italy, France and the United Kingdom, with 45% of its turnover generated abroad.
Fuelled by this success, Intertaping build an international distribution network, which is currently sending orders to over 50 countries and to more than 25,000 customers across Europe.
The company did not only exponentially grow their client base, but say they are outperforming giants like Amazon in the countries they are present. Intertaping now set their sights on becoming the number one online neuromuscular bandages store in Europe.
Google AdWords has proven to be the ideal solution for this small but busy company: easy to use, cost-efficient, highly measurable, and also including excellent advice and support.
“The technical help is great. I wasn’t familiar with AdWords at all and they have helped me to get the most out of it,” explains Javier Martín, Intertaping CEO. Google, he says, is the cornerstone of the business.
