Best Paid Search Award

Sponsored by performance marketing agency R.O.EYE, the Best Paid Search Campaign title will be awarded to an entrant who can prove effective use of paid search,  ROI and alignment to brand values throughout a successfully delivered campaign.

Formerly ‘Best Search Campaign’, this year will see awards for the Best Paid Search Campaign and Best Organic Search Campaign handed out separately.

Last year’s winners of the Best Search Campaign award, iProspect, worked to improve efficiency for Buy As You View (BAYV) – a seller of electrical and furniture items on a weekly repayment basis.

By using the company’s data to create an online geographical effort which would mirror Buy As Your View’s service footprint, iProspect was able to transfer the data onto Google Maps, allowing the information to hit each pay-per-click campaign.
