How did a COO help his CEO grow his consulting and software company through a scalable sales and marketing strategy?
The firm’s CEO was well-known in his industry, and business spiked whenever he had a speaking engagement. Based on his reputation alone, the company was doing well and had recently hired an inside sales rep to cold-call target businesses on a wish list.
With the company’s aggressive growth goals, however, Peter wanted a more scalable customer acquisition infrastructure in place. Peter had experience in business development and knew what had to be done, but as COO he lacked the time to implement a new system single-handedly.
Peter convinced the CEO digital marketing was critical. Once the firm chose a HubSpot inbound agency, the first step was to redesign the website.
The current iteration of the site was overwhelmingly brochure-like. It featured a single Contact Us form, no blog and no gated content—in other words, it lacked conversion opportunities. But a new site was created with the help of a HubSpot COS-certified marketing agency (us!).
Because the updated site was organized with the firm's buyer personas in mind, the company could more easily target individual buyers by using truly relevant language. The website could now be used for both building brand reputation and capturing leads.
We also helped launch the firm’s content marketing efforts, which included videos, infographics, guides and webinars. This content was promoted on their new website, LinkedIn and industry publications.
