The Problem

Experian SA launched a new brand into the market called ‘My Credit Check’ with the aim to start serving the B2C market through providing free credit reports. They had ambitious targets and KPI’s to meet over the desired period. The KPI was to hit a specific number of ‘free credit report sign-ups’ within a budget available in the desired period. There were other KPIs that we had to meet but hitting targets for the new user registrations was the key focus in terms of our resource and budget allocation.

The Solution

Our focus included a push-and-pull marketing strategy to enable us to look at the whole user funnel from the awareness stages down to the final decision-making stages. This entailed a mix of channels from social performance ads (Push: Facebook & Instagram) down to Google ads (Push & Pull: Search, Display, and Performance Max). The correct ad, channel, and budget allocation proved to be successful in running an integrated paid media performance campaign. One of the secret ingredients in our campaign was our creative strategy and refreshing creative monthly while testing the different messaging to see what works and what doesn’t work from a performance perspective. Alongside paid media, we had an SEO strategy to capitalize on the existing organic demand from the B2C target market for free credit check reports which assisted us in scaling the desired growth over time for this specific client.
