- Merkle’s campaign for Twitter, which involved creating a cross-channel strategy that leveraged the best parts of the platform, earned them both the Most Creative Performance Marketing Campaign and Best Integrated Performance Campaign awards. Judges commented that the campaign was “an out-and-out winner in terms of what it’s achieved for performance marketing innovation and creativity.” This allowed Twitter to effectively utilise the data and implement it resulting in impressive results.
- The Global Excellence award was presented to Awin and Nike for their campaign which enabled Nike to push their range in the EMEA region, continuing the legacy of their Air Jordan Sneaker product. They successfully embraced affiliate across multiple channels, “resulting in impressive coverage and results.”
- Rakuten’s Advertising programme for Cult Beauty earned them the prestigious Best Managed Affiliate Programme – Enterprise Level award. Commenting on the “thorough and intelligent approach to power the brand to the next level”, judges recognised the several new processes Cult Beauty implemented, such as cashback, voucher partners and attributed data, which allowed them to target new customers who’ve never shopped with them before. Through this collaborative approach with Rakuten, Cult Beauty achieved +58% YoY growth whilst forming partnerships with a new era of affiliates to create a new revenue stream for the affiliate channel.
