The online store Brasty currently does business in 10 European countries and constantly works on expanding into further markets. At the moment, Brasty supplies such goods as perfumes, watches, cosmetics, or jewelry to customers in Czechia, Slovakia, Poland, Germany, or Austria, but also in Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Spain, and Italy. The planned expansion should include markets in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Greece.
As an international company selling goods to customers almost all over Europe, Brasty employs PPC specialists who are in charge of huge amounts of PPC campaigns. The volume keep increasing as the business grows. Brasty’s advertising budgets amounts to hundreds of thousands of euros a month. A single specialist manages hundreds of PPC campaigns.
