Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) August 03, 2013
d50 Media, a leading acquisition marketing agency, today announced it was selected by the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), the most successful single athletic fundraising event in the United States, to help increase awareness, donations, and ridership through management of its paid search campaign. In addition, the PMC chose d50 to design and deploy SMS messaging and email platforms, a 12 month campaign to allow for a simplified, rider-initiated donor solicitation and reminder program.
Since 1980, the PMC has since raised $375 million for adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund.
d50 began managing PMC’s Google Grants AdWords campaign in May 2013, with a long-term focus to educate PMC on maintaining successful deployment. In two months, d50 increased PMC’s paid search conversion performance by a factor of ten. The benchmarks were measured against rider signup, volunteer signup, and donations.
“We jumped at the opportunity to work with and support the Pan-Mass Challenge, an organization that is not only known throughout Massachusetts, but whose reach and influence stretches far beyond the Bay State,” said Jeff Selig, director of strategy, d50 Media. “The goal was simple – drive quality leads to the site, thus increasing donations and awareness through new channels. With our expertise, we were able to quickly optimize PMC’s paid search campaign to drive traffic, and deliver both measurable results and quality leads.”
After the August 3 and 4 Pan-Mass Challenge, d50 Media will continue its support of the organization by creating SMS messaging and email platforms. This will allow friends, family, and colleagues to donate to a specific rider or team through a simple and automated process. In addition, d50 will develop and implement new donor signup technology for riders to more efficiently communicate with donors via SMS message, email or both.
d50 Media leverages technology, data, and creativity to solve client’s toughest marketing challenges. The agency combines the right media channels and ongoing performance optimization to find, reach and convert a client’s most valuable customers with the right message, on the right screen, at the right time.
