About the project
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.
"Working with Passion Digital has felt like having an extension of our own team; providing clear insights into performance, strategy adjustments and optimisation on a weekly basis to drive the increase in leads required. Our knowledge of how the channels perform and complement each other has allowed us to be smarter with our media spend, and continue to nurture prospective applicants for recurring programmes through remarketing features and data-capture.” Julie Coyne, Sales and Marketing Manager
