LEAD GENERATION PROGRAM GIVES NEW PRODUCT A SUCCESSFUL START
THE CLIENT CHALLENGE
Our clients were launching a new technology product, and needed a customized lead generation program that covered all the bases.
Target both acquisition and retention customers
Create a system that identifies immediate hot leads and future leads
Prove irrefutable ROI in order to secure continued marketing funds
• Untested Product—Generating leads for a new product means no baselines or former campaigns with which to compare
• Funding Pressure—Fast success was needed to ensure continued financial input
• Not One Size Fits All—Acquisition and retention targets require different methods of outreach
THE RESPONSEPOINT SOLUTION
Identify Weaknesses—Auditing the client’s current lead generation practices allowed ResponsePoint to identify what needed to be done differently and better.
Move the Money—By shifting funds from low-performing campaigns, the higher-performing opportunities could become even more robust.
Get Tactical—ResponsePoint identified the four marketing tactics most likely to generate quality and quantity of leads: outbound telemarketing, direct mail, email marketing and digital marketing.
Target Intelligently—Retention targets received two or three contacts, based on their opted in status. Acquisition targets from a rented opt-in list received one telemarketing outreach and one direct mail.
Keep Leads Hot—All hot leads generated from telemarketing were given to the sales team immediately. Other customers were driven to an online landing page that captured contact information via a giveaway. Captured information included qualifying questions about budget, timing and purchasing authority to better segment those leads.
