Macquarie Data Centres is Australia’s pioneering provider of sovereign and secure data center infrastructure and colocation services. The company is trusted by over 42% of Australian Federal Government agencies, and by global multinationals, two out of three global hyperscalers and many Fortune 500 companies – in particular when establishing or expanding a local presence in Australia.

Macquarie Data Centres partners with Digivizer to obtain real-time insights that allow it to optimize its campaigns, including LinkedIn Ads.

The original objective has been to establish benchmarks that defined where Macquarie Data Centres was in its digital marketing, and which would act as benchmarks for improvement, mapped to outcomes.

As such, this was the start of a test-learn-improve phase, made possible by Digivizer’s real-time insights.

Over the first year, Digivizer’s data and insights enabled Macquarie Data Centres to:

  • Improve conversions on LinkedIn by over 7 times
  • Grow brand awareness and increase traffic to its website
  • Do so with much-improved efficiency that saw costs per click (CPC) drop by 69%, and click-through rates (CTR) almost double


“Digivizer helps us get all the data needed to know our customers better, test hypotheses, make granular adjustments and improvements to our LinkedIn campaigns – all from one central platform in real-time. By integrating Digivizer with LinkedIn Ads, I know what’s working, all the time. Better still, I know why programs perform well.” – Krish Ruban, Head of Marketing at Macquarie Data Centres

Challenge

Macquarie Data Centres has a specific, niche audience as its target – large international enterprises seeking colocation data center services in Australia.

The challenges it faces include:

  • A high risk of missed opportunities in targeting due to a low-volume group of prospects seeking co-location partners
  • Difficulty measuring performance for multiple buying personas, individually and compared against each other
  • Measuring the impact of advertising campaigns and demonstrating ROI of a curated customer journey, measured using cost-per-click (CPC) to website form fill conversions, across all advertising platforms
  • Replacing limited visibility and outdated insights, to comprehend campaign performance and optimize agency-managed campaigns efficiently
  • Managing reporting cadence is also challenging, particularly when relying on time-consuming manual reporting. This approach had led to difficulties, including conflicting data, when comparing different social and search media platforms.

Solution

Macquarie Data Centres turned to Digivizer to obtain specific multi-channel campaign performance insights, with a focus on LinkedIn Ads:
