Challenges

Challenges

For CMC Markets the challenge is getting its online display advertising out of the door as quickly as possible – and precisely – in multiple languages. There is also an urgent need to display topical, tactical messages across live advertising. Plus, the in-house team must be able to review metrics like CTRs, and feed this data back into banner designs.

For CMC Markets one of the main benefits of using Bannerflow is efficiency in creative design. Its designers can now produce advanced HTML5 banners without any coding experience. By using Bannerflow’s drag and drop HTML5 widgets, its design team now adds eye-catching details to banners, allowing it to stand out in what can be a saturated digital landscape.

What’s more, from an accessibility perspective, because Bannerflow operates in the cloud, it is now far easier to share creative designs. Meaning its creative agency can help concept designs in-platform with its design team. Plus, Bannerflow’s unique ad server tag integration allows the marketing team to make changes quickly, so CMC Markets’ topical messages can be relayed at the push of a button

Results

Bannerflow is now essential in helping CMC Markets’ marketing team to work globally. With numerous regional offices around the world, Bannerflow is enabling smooth collaboration between in-house teams and third parties. For example, issues of design, and other production choices, are reviewed effortlessly via the public showcase; which has proved an excellent way of sharing feedback among stakeholders.

CMC Markets is also able to embrace real-time updates. With Head of Display Allan Sheriff noting “topical messaging is improving conversion rates and now that we’re able to do this more often, we’re seeing increases in post-click conversions of around 23%”. Through using Bannerflow and its intuitive features, CMC Markets is achieving greater digital advertising management, at a global level.

“To design banner sets of several sizes, multiplied by several messages, would previously have taken a couple of days' work. The same quantity of banners can now be produced in a matter of a few hours”
