134% year-over-year conversion volume increase for the largest private business in America
Delivering channel expertise to a diverse team and talent set
Koch was looking for channel expertise to run their paid media channels and improve performance in each sector. While Koch has a talented team of marketing professionals on staff, the need arose for deep knowledge of paid search, with the added commitment from the agency for industry research and understanding. Together, we knew that a very specific target was needed for each of the individual businesses, and LimeLight’s attention to detail, ability to research, and understanding of unique personas fit the bill.
Test, evaluate, iterate
Since launching in 2018 with one brand, John Zink, the relationship has grown to include eight brands running a variety of paid search and paid social strategies. The relationship with Koch Industries expanded through positive performance and analytics evaluation. Each year, LimeLight was able to deliver improved performance to reach each specific business entity’s objectives.
In partnership with Koch Industries’ continued guidance on keyword honing, LimeLight was able to focus on paid search strategies. In late 2021, Koch expanded its partnership with LimeLight to include LinkedIn advertising. Key performance indicators (KPIs) measured for improvement included conversion volume, cost per click (CPC), click-through rates (CTRs), focused targeting for niche audiences, and cost per conversion. In the first year, the sub-brands saw improvements in their metrics across all priority KPIs. These improvements were made through focused optimizations of the existing campaign builds. We spent time getting to know the brand. Their products and services are highly technical and very niche. So the targeting needed to be pinpoint accurate to achieve positive results. After evaluating the account, improvements were made on quality long-tail keywords, which allowed us to reach the right users. Through continued optimizations and iterating, we achieved an optimal setup to engage the right audience, at the right time, in the right location with appropriate ad content.
