In the fast-paced world of eCommerce, Lupo, an online retail business, sells toys and gadgets. Their main objective was to achieve top search rankings on eBay and ultimately boost their sales.

Julius Oliveti, the Director, was juggling multiple tasks at once. Manual optimization of PPC campaigns on eBay consumed a lot of his time, diverting him from the core focus of managing an eCommerce business.

I saw the need to be at the top of the search results. I wanted to do this by spending as little as possible. And I could not possibly monitor and set all bids effectively by myself.

Like many small to medium businesses, Lupo does not have a dedicated digital marketing team or a PPC expert.

So: Julius had to find a better way to effectively manage their eBay Promoted Listings Advanced (PLA) campaigns without draining time and resources.

The best part? You can do the same thing for your advertising on eBay, even with a limited marketing budget!

Let’s have a closer look!

How Lupo Used Adspert to Boost Sales

Before Adspert, manual bidding and optimization of eBay Promoted Listings Campaigns (PLA) presented three main challenges for Lupo:

  1. Lack of effective PPC optimization
  2. Difficulty securing top positions in eBay’s search results
  3. Limited online advertising budget


So Julius was looking for a reliable tool for streamlined and automated PPC optimization, and Adspert fit the bill.

What made him choose Adspert over alternatives? The easy, user-friendly interface coupled with advanced automation features.

The best part? Lupo gained confidence. Now, they are eyeing new markets more easily, knowing Adspert can help them outperform the competition.

7. One Tool, Two Platforms: eBay Ads AND Amazon Ads

At first, Lupo primarily needed an eBay PPC ad management software for their Promoted Listings Advanced campaigns. They considered another provider to help them with their Amazon PPC optimization.

However, when they found out about Adspert, they discovered that it also supports cross-platform optimization. This means campaigns across different accounts and platforms (e.g.,,, can be optimized in one place with one tool.

Image shows that Adspert makes it possible to use one PPC optimization tool for two advertising platforms - eBay Ads and Amazon Ads.

Using Adspert makes it easier and more convenient for Lupo to manage their campaigns.

They don’t need multiple tools or providers, and everything is in one place, making it simple to oversee and improve how their ads perform on different accounts and platforms.


Lupo’s collaboration with Adspert transformed their PPC campaigns from manual and inefficient to automated and successful.

By achieving top search positions on eBay and Amazon, the company experienced increased sales, improved ROI, and valuable time savings.

Adspert’s intuitive interface, coupled with exceptional customer support, positioned Lupo for continued growth and expansion into new markets.

Back in early 2000 I had returned from 6 months traveling to work with my family Ice Cream business. Whilst working on one of the Ice Cream vans all the kids kept asking me repeatedly to get Pokemon cards in for them. Their nagging persisted so in an attempt to get them off my back more than anything I decided to buy a box of cards from eBay from the USA.

Pandora's box had been opened and from there we evolved into selling a wide ranging portfolio of products on online marketplaces.

The LUPO brand now has an ever increasing portfolio of products and since we have opened our own webstore many more people have found our 'Simple solutions for Life'.

We hope that we can offer you the best products at great prices, married to good service.
