    Solving the “Chicken and Egg” Problem is the Easy Part.

    The crux and lifeblood of any marketplace/platform business is marketplace liquidity. Put simply, marketplace liquidity is the efficiency with which a marketplace matches buyers and sellers.

    When it comes to paid acquisition for marketplaces, marketplace liquidity is the judge, jury and executioner of whether your campaigns run at a profit or loss.

    Our secret sauce is building granular, hyper localised campaigns driven by data from your marketplace.

    Solving the “Chicken and Egg” Problem is the Easy Part.

    “Having spent my early career leading sales and marketing teams at a high growth marketplace company (FLX:ASX), specialising in marketplaces was an obvious choice when we started Farsiight.

    A partnership with Farsiight gives you access this IP and the market proven digital marketing strategies we have executed for marketplace companies worldwide.

    What makes our team dangerous is our deep specialty in PPC & Paid Social Advertising, combined with our intrinsic understanding of marketplaces.”

    Communication so Damn Good, It’ll Feel like We’re in the Same Room.

    It would be a little ironic if we called ourselves a Marketplace Marketing Agency but didn’t use any software ourselves. We leverage the worlds best communication and project management software to put you, our customer, in the centre of everything we do.

    We’ll collaborate on Slack, meet face to face via Zoom, provide custom reports through Google Data Studio and give you complete visibility over projects in Monday.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What makes Farsiight a specialist Marketplace Marketing Agency?

    +

    Hands-on experience & immersion. 

    Before joining Farsiight as Co-founder, Ben Somerville spent the best part of 5 years leading the sales and marketing teams at a high growth marketplace company (FLX:ASX) in Australia. Turns out one of the best decisions he made during this time was bringing in his brother Josh (Farsiight’s Founder) to scale up their paid advertising. 

    Between them, they have distilled the learnings from scaling paid ads for that marketplace into a replicable campaign structure formula which they have used to help scale marketplace like Service.com.au, Truckit.net, Bare Cremations, PropertyNow and many others. A partnership with Farsiight gives you access to this IP and the economies of scale benefits associated with driving digital campaigns for other leading marketplace companies. 

    Last but not least, we fully immerse ourselves in the industry. From attending the leading conferences, continually sharpening our skillset using ConversionXL, to keeping up to date with industry news and trends, our team lives and breathes marketplace/platform businesses.

    Why are hyper localised PPC campaigns so crucial for my marketplace?

    +

    There are two key factors which dictate what will be the best marketing channels for your Marketplace company to use.

    First and foremost is the level of awareness for the problem you solve and the solution you offer within your market. Why does this matter? Let’s use the following example to illustrate.

    Example: Vacation Rentals

    There is a very high level of awareness for both the problem, solution and even the products (AirBnb, Stayz, Booking.com) that exist within this vertical. What does that mean? There are vast volumes of high intent search traffic that can be capitalised on the leading search engines (Google, Microsoft & Yahoo). If your Marketplace fits in a similar category, then it’s highly likely that search engine marketing (SEM) will be the driving force behind your paid customer acquisition. 

    The second factor that plays a decisive role in what marketing channels you should use for your Marketplace company are your metrics. We cannot put enough emphasis on how important this is. Knowing your customer LTV (Lifetime Value) and target CAC (Customer Acquisition Cost) is critical when analysing what marketing channels to use for your Marketplace as this guides what you can afford to pay to acquire a customer in the respective channels. 

    If you know your metrics and are wanting some advice on what marketing channels you should use for your Marketplace company, book a call and we will provide you with a free comprehensive analysis.

    Should I launch paid acquisition if I don’t know what my customer LTV is?

    +


    No. 

    LTV (Lifetime Value) is a critical metric when it comes to launching paid acquisition for SaaS. If you do not know what your LTV is, then you are likely guessing what your CAC (Customer Acquisition Cost) needs to be. 

    And if you are guessing your CAC and using that to guide your paid acquisition strategy, that is a recipe for disaster and wasted capital. 

    Dropbox famously made this costly mistake in their early years spending big on Google Ads only to realise they were paying between $233 – $388 to acquire a customer who’s lifetime value was only $99. Ouch.

    Can you provide comprehensive reporting that we can share with our board and investors?

    +

    Yes. 

    As a result of partnering with many venture-backed Marketplace companies, we are well versed in building out custom reports and dashboards that present the metrics that matter most. Coupled with comprehensive commentary, we will arm you with everything you need to report back on our marketing initiatives at your next board or investor meeting.
