According to Han, Yilong estimates, online marketing was 100 times more effective than anything else they had tried. Yilong's annual sales volume has increased more than six times, from $700,000 to $5 million. The number of clients has risen from two to 600.
Yilong started working with Google in 2007 running campaigns for both retail and wholesale customers. Search ads attracted their target customer group and drove sales. Display ads raised awareness with potential customers interested in their product.
