The Marketing Automation Challenge
UNEX uses HubSpot as their marketing automation tool and Microsoft Dynamics as their CRM. They needed a clear conversion path on their website, a consistent content marketing strategy to drive traffic and alignment and integration between the marketing and sales teams and platforms. Activities and systems needed to be integrated and lead generation goals set for optimal tracking and measurement.
UNEX wanted to optimize their investment in marketing automation and inbound marketing.
How the Quick Start Plan Set UNEX Up for Digital Lead Generation Success
Marketing CoPilot’s understanding of the Dynamics platform was an important part to helping UNEX get better sales results from their marketing automation system. UNEX needed more than a marketing agency; they needed strategic marketers who also understood the complexity and power of the Dynamics CRM platform and what it needed to do for the sales and field service teams. Also being certified on HubSpot, meant that Marketing CoPilot could do the work to determine what data needed to stay in their marketing automation system and CRM, and what data needed to move between the two systems.
The Marketing CoPilot Team began by leading a two-day strategy workshop with key UNEX stakeholders in marketing, sales, customer service and operations. Using the Marketing CoPilot methodology, the group clarified and confirmed the UNEX value proposition, organized and documented the buyer persona hierarchy, and researched a keyword strategy that would support their content plan and themes by persona. They also documented the lead magnet for personas and the conversion strategy for the website. The pre-work, workshop and plan development was completed in 4 weeks.
Following the plan completion, Marketing CoPilot worked with the UNEX team to complete the HubSpot to Dynamics CRM data mapping, integration and website changes. The Marketing CoPilot Team developed a new lead magnet and conversion landing pages. They also worked with the team to optimize the site for the new keywords.
Creating the Right Content Improves Lead Generation Results
Content that lacks clarity or a compelling call-to-action drives poor lead generation results. Many B2B companies struggle with this challenge. They spend lots of money driving traffic to generic pages on their websites with no compelling offer or Call-to-Action.
Clearly articulating your value, offering a website visitor a compelling offer and following up with content that is buyer-centric, creates a better performing lead generation strategy. Marketing CoPilot delivered this for the UNEX Team and then stayed on board to help optimize the website, marketing automation tool and build the right content.
Marketing CoPilot recommended a cornerstone piece of content that would be available to people before they were ready to use the product configurator on the website or speak with a sales rep. As a result, the UNEX list grew by 30% in first 30 days of launching the lead magnet and over time lead generation results by 50%.
