The Story

How We Helped Promega Increase Lead Generation by 300% (and Cut Cost Per Lead by 50%)


The Challenge

Promega needed to reach their customers across multiple networks in a scientifically-accurate manner without having to manage all of their digital advertising in-house.

Life science expertise was the missing piece of Promega’s digital advertising efforts.

Their previous paid advertising efforts had to draw on in-house scientific experience and needed to be optimized to reach a broader audience.


The Strategy

Our dedicated account managers with Ph.Ds in the life sciences took on a dual-approach to target the top & bottom of the marketing funnel.

We made a dedicated marketing push towards LinkedIn to advertise whitepapers & webinars at the top of the marketing funnel using lead generation forms.

Google Ads targeted the bottom of the marketing funnel to bring in sales-qualified leads at a more reasonable price.


The Results

We used LinkedIn to target the right audiences for Promega webinar sign-ups with lead generation forms. This refinement and expert application brought in valuable new leads at
on a previously under-utilized platform.

Google Ads focused on optimized & strategic keywords & ads to bring in more sales-qualified leads. We doubled the ad click-through-rate and brought down the cost per conversion by 50%.
