Engagement Metrics




Our Approach

Our team of experts work with you to understand your campaign objectives and create a customized content led marketing program to cut through the noise to reach and engage with your target audience. We judge the success of your campaign not simply by the number of clicks or downloads but the direct ROI to your business.


We start by understanding how you want to measure success – whether that’s through marketing or sales-qualified leads, brand-building, networking or thought-leadership. 


Once we understand your goals and objectives, we build a bespoke campaign recommendation, targeted through a single Contentive brand or several of our communities. 


We develop a dedicated distribution strategy by disseminating your content across the most relevant channels, tailored to drive engagement with your audience.


From the moment a campaign is launched, our goal is engagement of your target audience. We track the quality and volume of engagements against both your objectives and our campaign benchmarks.


We constantly monitor and improve the performance of all live campaigns, keeping you updated every step of the way. This is an opportunity to learn what content works best for our community and optimise across all channels. 


Each campaign ends with a detailed report, showcasing the results of each campaign element, the conversion rates from one activity to the next, and any lessons that can be applied to future campaigns.

Campaign Objectives

The primary objectives of this campaign were to establish our customer as a thought leader in their industry and to generate qualified sales and marketing leads. A key target market for the company was senior HR professionals.

The Campaign

We planned an integrated marketing campaign connecting our customer with our community of HR professionals, in order to educate the audience on how apprenticeships can work to upskill and empower employees. Our team designed a month long campaign incorporating thought leadership articles, brand awareness via display re-targeting on the community and hosted webinars to generate sales qualified leads.


During the campaign our client received over 670 engagements across a variety of native content, over 2,000 impressions on display advertising and delivered 279 sales qualified HR leads for our customer.
