About the project

The Executive Education business - which sits within the world-renowned Imperial College Business School - deliver highly innovative open programmes which equip business leaders and senior executives with the knowledge to drive their businesses and careers forward. We deliver leads through LinkedIn and PPC advertising.

What we did

Since October 2016 we’ve been working with the Executive Education team to drive leads for some of their new and notable open programmes. Each programme is its own ‘campaign’, as the target audience and subject matter is extremely varied and often quite niche.

Advertising mediums utilised include PPC (Google, Bing, remarketing), Display and LinkedIn. On LinkedIn we’ve leveraged many ad formats, including sponsored updates, InMails and Dynamic Ads, with more plotted out to test.

Consistent in everything we do is heavy targeting, which help minimise inefficient spend. Given the nature of the courses on offer, we’ve had to take an advanced data-led approach to targeting, working closely with the client as we do so, to ensure the right courses are being advertised to the right people.

Results & Stats

Results have varied greatly between the different programmes, as a direct result of how distinct each one is.

Across the board we have gathered immeasurably valuable data to inform ongoing campaigns and drive continuous improvements to the efficiency of each one. We also know that compared to last year, when the agency at the time ran much more loosely targeted Display activity to achieve the same objective, we are delivering far greater quantities of leads, which are also of superior quality.
