Activity period: 2021

Challenge

International ISO consultancy IMSM brought us on board to increase Sales Qualified Leads across seven key markets. But the account lacked a clear strategy and with inconsistent data across its global markets, we needed to do far more than just execute an effective paid search campaign. This was all about layering complementary techniques to be able to deliver on their ambitious KPIs.

Our approach

Alongside restructuring campaigns to align with our newly defined strategy, we did a major rebuild of the Google Tag Manager containers to ensure reliable data (read more about the data work here). We then integrated with HubSpot to import offline conversions into the Ads platform, which opened the door to smart value-based bidding. That meant we could tweak and monitor campaigns to prioritise the conversions that were most likely to impact IMSM’s bottom line and drive the results that mattered.

Results

On top of increasing SQLs by 80% while decreasing cost per lead, sales more than doubled! By harnessing technology to bring clarity to campaigns with real-world data, we’ve given IMSM the confidence to re-enter markets they’d pulled back from, enter new ones, and double the number of markets we run paid media in. And that's not even mentioning the array of industry awards won along the way!
