Wishing to develop their marketing sophistication and leverage their key clients for 'referencability'.
Hoping to use their investment in intent data platform, Nexus by Cyance, Invenio engaged Sherpa to produce custom content targeting three clusters of audience in a one-to-few ABM approach.
They were hoping to run the ABM initiative with agency support in order to drive top of funnel engagement in the target audience and then provide full sales support during the engagement and movement of the audience through the sales cycle.
Personalised & targeted to intent clusters
Sales enablement and support content
Sales ABM dashboard with account intelligence
Multi-media campaign with video, downloads and webinars
Consistent hybrid value proposition
We set out to understand the Invenio proposition around servicing excellence and tech expertise in order to fully articulate the Invenio proposition along with the SAP product benefits.
The campaign focus was to drive contacts towards a live webinar and follow-up engagement with a combined and aligned sales and marketing effort.
The sales team needed material and collateral to use in their nurture engagement that was consistent with the marketing messages delivered at top of funnel.
Top-of-funnel touchpoints included:
Post-engagement sales content was designed to be consistent with campaign material, easy-to-access and easy-to-share.
Sherpa developed sales “snippets” and pre-written email content and held weekly sales meetings to discuss account engagement and progression.
Our account dashboard for the sales teams showed live campaign performance in real-time, measuring and tracking the performance of the campaign and showing data changes in intent, keyword focus of accounts, account prioritisation, firmographic information, tech stack, IT-spendability, LinkedIn engagement with campaign content and key contacts and social handles.
Webinar content based around intent signals provided the highest source of engagement from the target accounts.
Personas targeted were all Director level and above in companies with 10,000+ employees.
"Sherpa quickly understood the challenges we were facing and worked closely with our team, providing an end-to-end solution. They created a bespoke account-based marketing campaign around which we were able to align our sales and marketing teams. By gaining account intelligence using Nexus’ Cyance platform, our sales team were able to prioritise and serve bespoke content to prospects."
