Furthermore, the backend is very simple for client to make updates where needed without being held hostage.

4Ward-Design has a very specific target audience and the audience should be able to afford a high-end service. The client was also looking to exclusively target other businesses. With specialised targeting, LinkedIn allows targeting by job-title, industry and job function. Thus makes it the perfect place to reach new qualified leads for the brand.
With 4Ward-Design, the main objective was to reach interested prospects online and create a network of leads that would be valuable to the company for years.
The first and most important part of the journey was to identify the top target industries and make them aware of the brand through a series of brand awareness campaigns designed to peak their interest and position the brand.
4Ward-Designs precision advertising strategy makes use of brand awareness to drive organic traffic to the website where potential leads can make the final purchase decision. The strategy also focuses on leveraging that brand awareness campaigns through remarketing to gather leads on social media platforms. These leads are then nurtured further by the 4Ward team.

Lead Generation Forms
Our lead generation forms are built within LinkedIn and make use of LinkedIn’s automated questions and custom questions tailored to the audience. The custom questions are designed to qualify the leads. Should someone not meet all the qualifying criteria they would not be considered as a lead. The final product consisted of targeted questions paired with automatically populated demographic questions from LinkedIn’s automations – wrapped in a branded heading with a personalised thank you message.
Our customised reporting included audience performance with a focus on conversion metrics. We monitored best performing times and advised on scheduling and budget adjustments. We also reported on the type of industries the ads reached as well as what type of actions were being taken by the different audiences. This enables us to continually optimise our ads to perform better by industry.
Advertising data is being tracked with LinkedIn Insights tools as well as through Google Analytics. Constant monitoring and the use of LinkedIn Analytics allows for precision targeting and audience optimisation to convert leads.

Brand awareness is a critical step in building brand equity and the basis for a strong marketing strategy.

Lead Generation (Last 30 Days)
After establishing a brand presence it is time to capitalise on the foundation laid by brand awareness campaigns. Once people are aware of your brand and what you have to offer, you can gather their contact details and encourage them to start thinking about working with your brand. By utilising lead generation campaigns, in conjunction with retargeting strategies, you are gathering information and nurturing the leads while your brand is still top of mind – making conversions easier. It is important to note that this strategy helps to improve the quality of leads so that there are less irrelevant leads and more leads that are likely to convert.
