The client.

MoneySmart is Southeast Asia’s leading financial comparison platform allowing customers to make smarter financial decisions across different aspects of their daily lives. With a presence across Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, MoneySmart helps 100+ million people make better financial decisions.

The challenge.

As a young brand, MoneySmart was looking for a partner who could rethink their performance marketing strategy and setup across markets. Their goal was to focus on efficient and consistent growth in applications while maintaining CPA. They also wanted to integrate bottom line revenues with paid marketing activities for a clear ROI overview.

The solution.

With KPIs in mind, we did a round of audit and research to understand the financial portfolio MoneySmart offers across verticals. This allowed us to create an overview of all existing accounts that would help us with collecting meaningful data on user behaviour and performance as well as identifying opportunities to scale. We used this research to create a performance marketing strategy driven by detailed search intentions, and micro audiences that fed to accounts from an internal DMP and highly granular campaign structures. 

These new ad campaigns were launched with minimum bids and budgets to get a sense of performance per ad channel and audiences to understand where immediate potential lay vs. inventory that needed optimization. With that knowledge, we scaled product-specific inventory towards maximum cost per lead while analysing the quality of channel-specific leads down the funnel. We also focused on calculating suggested CPC in combination with on-site conversion rates.

The results.

We integrated two full-time, senior performance marketing consultants operating as an extension of the MoneySmart marketing team and successfully established a fully functional regional performance marketing setup. Our four-staged approach of 1) audit and strategic research to drive insights, 2) build campaigns based on user journeys, 3) test and learn with minimum bids, and then 4) scale vertical / product specific inventory towards maximum cost per lead while analyzing the quality of channel specific leads down the funnel, led to a 47% increase in the number of applications in just over 6 months.
