LeadSift helps Branham Group double their goal of meetings booked at Dreamforce 2016

Problem

NSBI and Branham Group teamed up to help Nova Scotian companies to book meetings at the latest Dreamforce 2016 conference. There are over 170,000 of attendees at Dreamforce, so Peter Wolchak (Chief Analyst @ Branham Group) was brought on to help create sales opportunities for his clients by booking meetings with potential prospects at the conference. Provided with just a list of exhibiting companies at the show – it was a daunting task for Peter to figure out the decision makers at these organizations and also identify who will be attending.

  

Solution

Branham Group teamed up with LeadSift to help Peter identify executives that would actually be attending Dreamforce. Filtering the data based on Job Title, Seniority and Industry parameters – made the task of getting key contacts at target organizations a breeze. The information also included direct contact information along with social profiles, so that Peter would be able to reach out directly to these contacts and not worry about manually searching databases for the contact info.

In addition to the net new prospects, LeadSift was able to help harness the power of Account Based Intelligence by providing the contact information for different decision makers in the account that he was already working on. He saw much success when these contacts were brought forward and was able to book multiple meetings for his clients.

  

Results

Within just a few days of using LeadSift, Branham Group was able to book multiple sales meetings for his clients. Starting out his goal was to book 6 meetings per client, however he ended up doubling that number and was able to book 10-12 meetings for each client. The fact that LeadSift provided direct contact information to executives that were attending Dreamforce, saved Peter several hours of manual research and allowed him to focus on the actual outreach.

  

“Not only did LeadSift benefit Branham Group for this project but I can see working with LeadSift in the future.”

How the #1 Facebook Ad Agency gets 5X Meetings Booked with LeadSift

Problem

Abacus being a digital agency generates over 70% of their demand from
Inbound/Paid Marketing. However, only depending on Inbound or Word of mouth was creating a growth ceiling.

They wanted to explore a targeted outbound marketing strategy by identifying the right people to talk to at the right time.

  

Solution

Abacus reached out to LeadSift, with the goal of identifying and connecting with the right companies, where they could contribute with relevant and actionable value, and thus growing their own pipeline.

  

As part of their intent data driven outbound strategy, Abacus segmented their Intent triggers into 3 broad categories:

  • Competitive Engagement: identify companies that were engaging with other agencies in their space
  • Topic Engagement: identify companies that were consuming/engaging with content about relevant industry topics
  • Event Attendance: identify companies that were attending/sponsoring a few key digital marketing conferences
  

For each of the Intent trigger types, Abacus created three highly personalized Nurture streams with different calls to action. Each Nurture stream had between 4 and 7 touch points over Email and Social Media.

  

Results

Within a month of using Intent data from LeadSift for their outbound campaigns – Abacus noticed a significant increase in their pipeline.

For two their nurture streams (Competitive Engagement & Topic Engagement) the Call-to-Action was booking a consulting meeting with the prospects and they booked meetings at the rate of 5% and 6% respectively. Average industry rate of response from cold emails is less than 1% and Abacus was booking meetings 5X times the industry average in a highly competitive market.

For their nurture stream based on Event Attendance – they used a more top of the funnel Call-to-Action and shared a piece of related content. For this campaign they got 17% positive reply rate.

  

“LeadSift helped us accelerate growth and unlock scale by connecting with the right companies at the right time.”

    

Using LeadSift Intent triggers along with a smartly created Outbound Nurture stream – Abacus was able to rapidly scale their outbound efforts and generate MQL’s. LeadSift added a firepower that not only made a significant contribution to growth but also gave an almost instant ROI.

LeadSift Partners with Intentsify.io to Help B2B Marketers Action Contact Level Intent Signals Programmatically

Marketers can now leverage contact level Intent data across multiple digital channels using Intentsify’s data activation platform.

HALIFAX, NS (July 16,2020) – LeadSift, a leading buyer-intent data platform, and Intentsify, a powerful intent data activation software, are partnering up to deliver and activate intent data for B2B companies at the contact and account level. 

This strategic partnership will allow B2B marketing teams to pinpoint which contacts and companies are actively researching specific solutions and product categories or engaging with their competitors, and then act on that intel to engage identified accounts, quickly and meaningfully.  

More than just buyer intent data, end users benefit from an ultra efficient, turnkey solution–including intent-driven programmatic advertising and lead generation–resulting in increased target-account engagement, conversion rates, return on media spend, and brand experience. A once tedious workflow becomes an effective way to quickly adjust demand generation efforts according to changing market needs. 

One of the biggest challenges with Intent Data is properly actioning it.” says LeadSift CEO Tukan Das. “To properly leverage intent signals – marketers need to reach buyers via multiple different channels – targeted ads, personalized email nurtures, content syndication programs. Partnering with IntentSify will allow marketers to make activating the Intent Data super easy – while measuring the exact impact on their pipeline”

“The incredible value of intent data has been proven,” says Intentsify co-founder, Mike Kelly. “Unfortunately, converting intent insights into impactful actions is an immense roadblock for many B2B marketing teams. By combining two complementary intent data sources, the new integration with LeadSift not only provides marketers with a more powerful view into prospects’ interests and readiness to buy, but it also helps ensure such prospect intel translates to meaningful, demand-generating engagements.”

“When two uniquely different data sets both identify the same intent signals, that’s powerful,” says John Phillips, Director, Partnerships & Demand Generation at Nerdery. “When you have a solution that aggregates and digests those signals for you, and then helps you act on those signals to engage prospects, that’s even more powerful, because it’s efficient. That’s exactly what this partnership provides.”

Vidyard is reengaging cold leads and discovering new leads using LeadSift’s content-based lead generation

 

Problem

Vidyard is always looking for new and innovative ways to bring leads into their sales and marketing pipeline, from traditional sources like trade shows and paid media to inbound content.

While these activities do bring in a good amount of quality leads, some are time consuming and not scalable. Content-based lead generation in particular was a problem: Vidyard’s Marketing Manager, Jon Spenceley, was spending three to four hours a week manually scouting for signals on blogs and social channels to see if people were engaging with their competitors or industry content.

  

“The tediousness, significant time commitment, and lack of scalability meant that this type of lead generation often got pushed to the back burner,”

    

Solution

In their efforts to expand their pipeline, Vidyard turned to LeadSift. Building on the methodology already in place at Vidyard, LeadSift deployed an automated system that discovers leads that have engaged with industry or competitor content and then forwards those directly to the sales and marketing team.

Each qualified lead is associated with their social media accounts, enabling the team to engage prospects across different channels without having to spend valuable time searching for contact information. The leads are also integrated into Vidyard’s marketing automation system, which makes them easy to sort, access and follow-up on.

  

Results

Within just a few short weeks of using LeadSift, Vidyard has already booked several sales meetings and created significantly large sales opportunities. Plus, Spenceley now has more time to think strategically and
focus on big picture items.

  

“LeadSift has made obtaining new marketing qualified leads exceptionally easy,” says Spenceley. “My time has been freed up, and we can now scale our outbound efforts as we grow.”

  

LeadSift provides Vidyard with 70 percent net new accounts, with the other 30 percent being older leads that had gone cold, now reintroduced into the buying journey. This is an interesting development for Vidyard, as they can see which leads, previously in their pipeline, are sending signals for them to reengage. These, along with new leads, can be warmed up via social selling and outreach campaigns to ultimately create more customers.
