The success of our retail clients is our drive day in and day out, so, can you imagine our delight when we found out we’d been shortlisted for ‘Best Integrated Paid Media Campaign’ at the UK Paid Media Awards 2023?! We’re over the moon that our work with homeware client Graham & Green has been recognised.
Graham & Green came to Ortus with hopes of finding a paid partner with a holistic view of all paid channels, to drive maximum revenue and improve overall Paid Marketing ROAS… and did we deliver!
Our results speak for themselves:
+35% increase in combined ROAS
+67% increase in combined Revenue
+45% increase in Social ROAS
+26% increase in PPC ROAS
Another key objective set by the client was to reduce reliance on Brand Campaigns in PPC to increase Generic revenue, which we successfully achieved:
Generic Revenue increased by 83% YoY
We’re always proud to shout about the performance results of our clients, but these results in particular really highlight the importance of taking a holistic approach to paid marketing.

- We took our perpetual, holistic approach to the Paid Marketing budget and split it across both PPC and Paid Social.
- We looked at previous insights to identify trends – this then allowed us to split the budget with data backing up our decisions.
- We conducted PPC and Paid Social audits for the client, to find that a restructure of both channel accounts was required to bring them up to speed with the platforms and Ortus’ best practice.
- Most recently we have been expanding our Pinterest strategy over the festive period, using our knowledge from previous years to strengthen the use of the platform for the client.
- Due to our holistic approach, PPC and Paid social were able to work together to discover top performing PPC keywords for targeting as well as PPC and Paid Social top performing audiences.

“After running our paid marketing campaigns in-house for some time, I’m delighted with the results that Ortus have managed to achieve so quickly. Their expertise and enthusiasm to help drive our business have helped us navigate the choppy waters post-pandemic, and provide us with some amazing growth during the economic downturn.
