Manz digital campaigns


Manz AG


Mechanical and plant engineering


Since 2021

The objective: To increase Manz AG’s visibility in the automotive industry, especially in the fields of electric mobility and battery production. How did we achieve this? With the right campaign mix of push and pull marketing. The close dovetailing of all the components of online marketing, social media marketing and PR, led to the campaign’s success. We also packed the sometimes very technical topics into compelling stories, which we adapted to suit specific channels.

The client

Manz AG is a global systems manufacturer headquartered in Reutlingen in South-West Germany. The company has more than 30 years of experience in the field of automation. Since 2021, we have been supporting Manz with digital campaigns – especially LinkedIn, SEM (SEO & SEA) and PR work – in order to further increase awareness of the brand in the field of automotive and electric mobility.

The assignment/Challenge:

The main goal was to increase Manz’s visibility in the automotive industry. The challenge was to convey Manz’s expertise very clearly in the field of electromobility. The operational goals were to create awareness and to achieve follower growth and top ranking for relevant terms in the search engines.

Social media – organic & paid

LinkedIn as most important campaign channel

We implemented an international campaign strategy that closely integrated both paid and organic content on LinkedIn and that was based on clear targeting.

Before we kicked off with the specific channels, we first analysed the target group and developed an overarching storyline – the common thread for the entire campaign.

Search engine marketing

SEO and SEA considered together

Organic search engine optimisation and Google Ads have more in common than many people may think at first glance. So of course, everything was based on keyword research.

Following the keyword analysis as a decisive platform for next steps, we created SEO landing pages in German and English, which also worked as target pages for Google Ads. The challenge here, as is usual in B2B, was the very narrow target group and therefore a relatively low search volume. But better to reach fewer users, but the really relevant ones!

Throughout the campaign, we succeeded in placing the corresponding landing page on position 1 in the organic search engine results. Using Google Ads and relevant ad texts, we were also able to increase awareness of Manz at a low CPC.

Public Relations

Another component of the campaign: Classic PR

Especially in B2B, classic PR continues to play a major role and ideally complements the purely digital campaign measures to generate attention.

The aim of the PR measures was to publish press releases on the topic and to position articles in trade journals in order to further increase Manz’s visibility. This also served to underscore the company’s expertise.
