Executive Summary

  • Comprehensive audit resulting in restructuring the whole setup for efficient scaling
  • Introducing Demand Generation tactics to expand on the pre-existing Lead Gen structure
  • Holistic optimization based on best performing assets + creatives
  • Persona-based campaign setups to further foster campaign efficiency


LinkedIn Ads as a revenue programme was not delivering results since it wasn’t driving significant pipeline. A focus on few offers proved unsuccessful. No retargeting campaigns were in place leaving great potential to turn things around. Furthermore, efficiency in existing campaigns was severely limited because of incorrect use of bidding strategies, lack of optimization for creatives and no use of custom audiences. Therefore, Operations1 needed an experienced partner that focuses executing paid growth strategies that drive actual revenue in order to turn things around quickly.
