• From a typical cost per application (CPL), of over $200 and an application-to-enrollment rate of 5%, we reduced CPL down to ~$40 blended and increased the application-to-enrollment rate to ~15%, therefore improving quality and reducing costs dramatically. We established the playbook that was then replicated globally.

The Challenge

Nexford was established to provide online only MBA/BBA courses aimed at mostly developing markets and lower-income audiences in developed markets 


I was hired to help launch their brand into multiple new territories, to test acquisition channels including FB/IG; Google Ads (Search/Display); set up their Lifecycle Marketing activities for nurture, onboarding and ongoing course specific communications; and a focus on Conversion Rate Optimization and SEO / Content Marketing.

The Process

  • We launched into 6 test territories - US, UK, Egypt, Nigeria, Thailand and Philippines. 
  • Through the course of testing we successfully devised territory specific user journeys, optimising from top to bottom of funnel and establishing baseline acquisition metrics ready to scale up and replicate in new territories.

The Solution

  • From a typical cost per application (CPL), of over $200 and an application-to-enrollment rate of 5%, we reduced CPL down to ~$40 blended and increased the application-to-enrollment rate to ~15%, therefore improving quality and reducing costs dramatically. We established the playbook that was then replicated globally. 
  • I was also responsible for pushing the establishment of academic recruitment best practice, including a scholarship program.
  • Despite intense competition in this space, through technical improvements and content generation, I also managed to improve organic traffic from almost nothing to 12k clicks per month within 6 months.

Stock Fragrance

Stock Fragrance sell professional fragrance oils to DIY candle makers or soap makers etc. This audience are a very engaged audience specifically on Facebook and Pinterest, so finding the audience was easy but convincing them to spend top dollar on the best quality fragrance oils, in bulk was harder. We spent alot of time on education, building brand awareness and website traffic, we then followed up with a lead gen campaign with a lead magnet that offered free smelling samples and this made all the difference. We had an audience that was primed to convert and offering a lead that was useful to them and convinced them to buy was a win for everyone.

Goodfair

Goodfair is an online recycled clothing retailer focused on reversing the negative effects of consumerism. Unlike ThredUp or a normal thrift store, customers purchase "product categories or bundles" and are sent an eclectic mix of items adding a mystery element to the experience.


Challenges:

  • Often sold out of in-demand product categories, making it hard to scale top-performing ads
  • Didn't have a consistent stream of new content
  • Always had an abundance of low-converting product categories that they wanted to push


Strategies:

  • Immediately created evergreen ad content that converted well and was scalable since it wasn't tied to a specific product
  • Worked with the client on an influencer outreach plan to build up their asset library—used this content to create eye-catching videos that focused on the styling of the products, while also highlighting Goodfair's mission
  • Pitched the client on product-specific influencer outreach initiatives to get more creative (and hopefully higher converting) content featuring the products that were a tougher sell
