Veneficus

a digital agency with a difference

 

Why We’re Different

At Veneficus we provide the meeting point between brand and consumer. As website owners ourselves we are able to offer reasoned advice, plans and conversion optimisation to advertisers. Something that traditional agencies and networks are unable to do.

We work with some of the UK's leading brands, driving traffic to their sites, promotions and social media pages. We deliver 1000s of newsletter sign ups, free sample applicants, Facebook Likes & much more on a daily basis.

Why is lead generation so important?

Unlike other advertising channels lead generation gives you full control over your costs. You only pay for performance. Why take the risk with media buying on CPMs? Simply decide on a value for each user and then pay no more than that for your leads.

What we do

Design

We work closely with brands to optimise their landing pages and then start driving sign ups to them. As media owners we know what works! With decades of shared experience building and optimising websites and landing pages we can give you advice that most agencies can’t.

Perhaps most important of all, we know how to price a campaign. We’ve run hundreds of campaigns for a wide variety of advertisers. We know when advertisers are paying too much and we know when it’s too little.

Optimisation

Test, test and test again. If there’s one thing owning our sites has taught us it is the importance of testing. We split test everything and want our clients to do the same. With our own media we can completely control the amount of traffic coming to each version of your landing page and optimise it based on those results.

Delivery

Once we’ve optimised we can fully deliver the budget for your campaign. Using our own websites, our affiliate network or both we will make sure you get the right type of user and a volume you’re happy with.
