The brief


THIS needed support to improve their primary acquisition channel, Google AdWords. Campaigns on this channel were experiencing a decline in performance which resulted in lower than expected lead volumes and high lead acquisition costs.

The strategy


A dynamic, ambitious PPC strategy designed to support and achieve the key commercial objectives. The new strategy followed a clear ‘test and learn’ approach, essential to making sure all optimisation, targeting and campaign decisions were made using reliable insights and data.

As well as improving Google AdWords performance, the new strategy included the development of additional PPC channels, such as Gmail and Bing Ads and developing the THIS brand online.

TDMP has been the key to growth. Since they took over, they have increased premiums by an average 50% and reduced the cost per conversion by 52% by month 6. This has been achieved through their strategic approach and daily management of the campaign, a level of service which makes them feel part of our team.
