Herd win Prolific North Marketing Award 2023

Our talented Paid Media marketing team were busy celebrating in Manchester last night after winning at this year's Prolific North Marketing awards for our recent Paid Search project for our partners at Motorpoint - one of the UK's largest car supermarket giants!

The annual Prolific North Marketing awards celebrate the very best in stand-out Marketing campaigns of the year, from Best small and large B2C and sector specific campaigns, to recognising team and digital marketing agencies across the UK. Across creative, digital, tech, media and marketing, these awards shine a spotlight on the region's world-class work and the people behind it. 

As a leading performance marketing agency in the area, we were keen to showcase one of our most recent outstanding Paid Media campaign which is now enjoying record breaking results for our partner, with great potential for future growth.

Partner feedback

“One of the key reasons I came to Herd was to use their tech stack and some of their tools which allowed us to save money on paid search.

I'd highly recommend Herd and we'll absolutely be using Herd on an ongoing basis - I see Herd as a key part of our Marketing team in the future.”

Alex Howland, Digital Marketing Director, Motorpoint

Why we entered

Amidst the cost-of-living crisis, Motorpoint faced spiralling ad costs due to intense competition for high quality leads, as households restricted large purchase spending. We provided a completely innovative solution, conducting a comprehensive audit and devising a tailored paid search strategy that integrated our custom-built technology to drive incrementality.

In just 6 months, we achieved unparalleled results, surpassing targets by significantly reducing ad spend and wasted budget. Our campaign generated more quality leads and improved ad relevancy scores. Motorpoint couldn’t be happier with the outcome, as we drive higher quality leads at volume pushing sales to new record levels.

Our Paid Media performance strategists have positioned Motorpoint at the forefront of the automotive car retail sector, safeguarding their future nationally.
