The client 

WEX is a global commerce platform that helps businesses solve operational complexities like employee benefits, managing and mobilising fleets, and streamlining payments. 

Our Paid Media team provided paid media support to WEX, fuelling paid media growth with an omnichannel approach.

Award-winning work

Whilst our team had worked with WEX for several years on a paid media retainer, for Q4 2023, WEX tasked Hallam with a specific challenge; our target was to drive additional leads – as many as possible – via a three-month campaign.

We delivered an omnichannel paid media campaign that showcased creativity, strategic thinking and a data-driven approach to deliver an 18% increase in leads versus target, while spending 10% less than originally forecast. 

Activity ran across 7 markets, utilising a combination of channels over a three-month period, allocating this spend to expanded activity on Google Ads & Programmatic Display as well as fresh activity Yahoo Ads, Programmatic Display and Native inventory.

We secured two award wins for this paid media campaign; our work was awarded ‘Best Use of Search B2B (PPC)’ at the Global Search Awards in June 2023 and ‘Best Paid Media-Led Campaign’ at the European Paid Media Awards in September 2023, including being finalists for ‘Digital Industries: Paid Search’ at The Drum Awards in November 2023.

“The campaign is a really great showcase of a full-funnelled PPC strategy; the agency’s ability to adapt and pivot in the face of challenges, along with a creative and data-driven approach, was commendable. This campaign served as an excellent showcase of effective PPC strategies and highlighted the importance of being agile and data-focused to achieve exceptional results.”
