PPC campaign

Our original audit showed that MetFilm School was potentially wasting over 60% of their PPC budget due to misspent clicks and poor structure.

For the 2014 clearing campaign, we restructured it, rewrote the ads and only focused on core subjects to minimise misspend and improve the conversion rate and quality of the student. This work paid off with a CTR up 166%, a better average position and a reduction in total spend by 21%.

This was also complemented with a Facebook campaign with sponsored posts on “Success starts here”. The CTR rose by 658% and attracted almost 300% more engagements compared to the previous year. The campaign also saved 68% of the budget.
