Automic was looking to implement a 12-month strategy, promoting evergreen content to increase visits to their website and their lead generation.
The campaign would target consumers across several countries and languages, enabling Automic to generate a steady stream of Inbound leads through the promotion of high-quality downloadable content, gated by lead capture forms.
Automic’s marketing team needed more flexibility and resources to launch shorter topic or event-specific campaigns to help support their wider marketing activities.
They decided to revise their pay-per-click (PPC) strategy, approaching Huble Digital to help them reduce their cost per conversion whilst ensuring their PPC budget focused on the best performing channels, ads and targets.
We helped Automic launch a PPC campaign that was split across Google Search & Display, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn Ads and Sponsored Posts.
On Google AdWords, the team expanded Automic’s initial target keywords to cover highly relevant terms and wrote compelling ad copy to drive users to the most relevant content asset for their search. We used detailed audience targeting, applying multiple criteria filters to promote these ads to the most relevant users.
Our internal team of designers created compelling, on-brand ads and - working with Automic’s regional teams - the team created multilingual, in-language copy to expand the campaigns into France and Germany.
The team also provided budget management and campaign optimisation throughout, reviewing cost per click and click-through rates to optimise the cost of conversions.
Finally, the team ensured comprehensive, end-to-end reporting was possible, covering all of the advertising platforms as well as Google Analytics, HubSpot and Salesforce.
Automic was also navigating a highly competitive landscape. Their previous keyword and audience targeting strategies had encountered a large amount of competition from other brands, which was driving up campaign costs. Automic needed guidance on where best to spend their budget to ensure the best campaign performance.
Looking at a two-year snapshot, Huble Digital helped Automic generate new qualified leads at $133.27 per conversion on average across multiple channels.
The extensive data gathered through Paid Social campaigns enabled Automic to better understand their target audiences and develop new and innovative ways of reaching them with relevant content on the channels they frequented most. This meant Automic’s sales pipeline was furnished with a regular supply of leads to complement their other marketing activities.
Through Google Search, our team helped Automic to hit an average conversion rate of 3%, where the average industry benchmark for B2B and technology was 1.04%. In addition, through Google Display, the team were achieving a 2.58% conversion rate, where the industry average for B2B and technology has never been higher than 0.8%.
