The Academics department at Dassault Systèmes (3DEXPERIENCE Edu) provides students and academics with the means and knowledge needed to become experts in Dassault Systèmes' products and solutions.


3DEXPERIENCE Edu hired Quantads to sell its flagship student products (SOLIDWORKS and CATIA) online.

By integrating into an extremely robust marketing strategy, the objective was to reach a certain volume of sales from the first year... And to prepare for the coming years with exponential objectives!

In addition to performance campaigns, Quantads handled awareness campaigns aimed at upskilling students, teachers and employees.

actions menées

Quantads brought its expertise to support Dassault Systèmes education teams in launching and streamlining SEA & Social Ads campaigns.

We started by adding a strategic layer to media investments by focusing on search engines, which allowed us to identify the first persona.

After several tests and methodical iterations, the team identified several areas of improvement at the ad, site and offer levels.

Results: conversion rate increased threefold in just a few weeks.

After this initial period, Quantads expanded the initial strategy up the funnel with Social Ads and Display/Video channels.
