The client’s existing solution at the time (list acquisition) delivered low quality leads with less than 45% accuracy of contacts, which resulted in less than 1% engagement rates with no conversions. This was followed by the implementation of a marketing automation solution, which was extremely helpful in delivering timely and relevant content that was not being delivered to qualified leads.
Colabo reached out to the organization in response to a question posted on Quora from one of their Inside Sales Managers about lead conversion rates.
Using Colabo’s lead discovery platform would provide the starting point for the client to set their lead parameters and begin to generate qualified leads in their target regions.
By implementing Colabo’s solution, the organization has been able to successfully identify their perfect lead and deliver an over-abundance of new leads into their sales funnel. Colabo’s platform has helped them locate and engage with their competitors’ leads, which in turn has led to a shorter sales cycle and an improved lead-to-sales conversion rate. When the client ventured into the European market, they struggled to find quality leads to build their sales funnel. Colabo then mapped out the relevant local sources to identify the perfect leads according to the regional differences, which were significantly different from their original US market place. By using Colabo’s platform there they were able to replicate their US success.
Integration with the client’s marketing automation solution was seamless and has allowed the sales efforts to continue on a regular basis, to inform and educate their target audience about the benefits of using their product. This has given the organization a wider range of communication tactics to supplement their emailing efforts. With the wealth of information available from Colabo’s platform, the client was able to build a customized Demand Generation program highlighting all the relevant product messaging to drive these prospects through the sales funnel and into the hands of their Sales team.
