What Was The Goal?

F5 Networks, a Fortune 1000 Global Cybersecurity Firm, was facing a significant decline in MQLs and sales, while struggling to adapt their digital campaigns against increasing competitive pressure. The lack of transparency into their contractual partner agency's efforts further exacerbated their difficulties, and a sluggish strategy development process was stifling the growth necessary to elevate their lead and sales figures. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, F5 Networks turned to us for our expertise. They entrusted us with the task of auditing their advertising stack and rejuvenating their performance to not only recover but thrive.

They sought our expertise to audit their advertising stack and revitalize campaign performance to not only recover but thrive.

Our Solution:

Optimized Paid Search Strategy: Our intervention went beyond surface-level changes. We meticulously refined their paid search strategy, introducing a more lean campaign structure that honed in on multi-touch conversion points. This approach ensured a streamlined user journey, from Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs) to Sales Qualified Leads (SQLs), culminating in Targeted Qualified Leads (TQLs). By precisely addressing each phase, we maximized the efficiency of their ad spend and minimized lead leakage.

Revamped LinkedIn Targeting: Recognizing the significance of LinkedIn as a B2B powerhouse, we undertook a comprehensive revamp of F5 Networks' LinkedIn targeting. Our approach was two-fold:

  • Location-Based Targeting: We implemented granular location-based targeting campaign structures. This strategic adjustment ensured that F5 Networks' messaging reached the right audience in specific regions, amplifying the impact of their campaigns.
  • In-Depth Audience Segmentation: To further elevate their LinkedIn campaigns, we delved into audience segmentation. By meticulously segmenting based on industry and website behavior, we ensured that F5 Networks engaged with professionals who were not just interested but genuinely aligned with their offerings.

Strategic Landing Page Testing: Recognizing the pivotal role of user experience, we directed our attention to F5 Networks' website. Through rigorous testing, we optimized landing pages for diverse goals, from enticing lead magnets that captured valuable information, to crafting persuasive sign-up pages for their newsletter, and creating seamless pathways for live webinar registrations. This data-driven approach resulted in higher engagement, increased lead generation, and a more fluid conversion journey, strengthening F5 Networks' online presence.

The Results:

  1. Strategic Global Oversight: Our team took charge of F5 Networks' Global Paid Media programs, strategically coordinating efforts across multiple international theatres spanning the USA, Asia, and Europe. This global approach ensured a unified message across diverse markets.
  2. Campaign Restructure Success: With a strategic eye, we executed a comprehensive campaign restructure. This initiative yielded remarkable results, delivering a substantial 45% reduction in ad spend costs. Simultaneously, we witnessed a noteworthy +36% surge in leads across platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and within Email Marketing Campaigns.
  3. Revamped Partner Collaboration: Recognizing the critical importance of seamless communication, we meticulously audited the performance of the external agency partner team. By strengthening the lines of communication and implementing real-time analysis of performance metrics through platforms like Tableau and Datorama, we transformed their collaborative efforts.
