About AK Plywood

AK Group, one of India’s leading plywood producers, has been in the business for over 35 years, offering a wide range of products.

They’ve found their place in the market and positioned themselves as one of India’s long-standing manufacturers of allied wood products over the past two decades. With a state-of-the-art plant with ISO 9001:2015 certification, all the products conform to the BIS standards, including plywood, blockboard, film-faced shuttering ply, fire retardant ply, flush door, moulded skin door, veneered moulded door, and decorative veneers.


AK Plywood had to deal with various challenges arising from a lack of brand visibility and a saturated market teeming with competition.

This led to the following issues:

  • The CPL (cost per lead) was higher than desirable.
  • The number of total leads was insufficient, and as a result, the cost per result was also high.
  • The AK website did not have a high SERP ranking (search engine results page).

Steps Toward Resolution

After an analytical research based on target demographics, we concluded that Facebook and Google markets were prime optimization hubs for AK Group. Once we had our platforms, we began implementing changes.
A. Facebook
On this social media platform, we created three segmented campaigns, i.e. for three sections of target audiences:

  1. Architects
  2. Interior Designers
  3. Builder

This allowed us to better segregate the communication styles and techniques for each of these groups in order to engage them and increase the number of website visitors and leads.

Also, we constantly ran ads retargeting website visitors through remarketing cross-platforms marketing.

Finally, to enhance and optimize user engagement, we constantly performed A/B testing of our creatives and target audiences and improved our efforts with each iteration

B. For Google

Here, we created a segmentation of competitors and started running campaigns. We did this by adopting the CRO (conversion rate optimization) technique. This meant making use of heatmaps of interactions on websites to customize landing pages and using Google Analytics and Google Optimize to further enhance it.

We also integrated a CRM (customer relationship management), leading to lead increments and higher-quality conversions.
