The challenge

Australian Ethical had chosen to compete against some of the biggest finance companies in Australia who had entrenched, loyal customers who had never even thought about moving their superannuation from what they always had. With tiny budgets and no direct sales team we needed to convince people to switch their super then and there through an online form to a brand they didn't know.

Main Goal

Month on month growth in super signups.

The solution

To build their marketing strategy from virtually the ground up we recommended our Growth Marketing service and assigned a team with an expert in each area of digital marketing to their campaign. Through the year we brainstormed growth levers that included both marketing and business changes, prioritised these ideas and then tested/rolled them out, scaling up the successful ideas.

The things we worked on month-to-month were “fluid”, meaning that if something with a higher priority came up in any month or if one channel was getting amazing results, we could quickly divert resources and marketing spend into those areas to ensure we took advantage of the opportunities when they occurred – a good model for both parties, and more importantly, for results.
