Enhancing Customer Loyalty With Personalized Messaging: The Logistics Brand’s $6 Million Breakthrough
Starting with a blast! We all know that some business leaders in the logistics industry tend to hold on to traditional sales and marketing methods. PwC’s Future In Sight Series on the logistics industry supports this notion.
But this Client was not content with the status quo. They wanted to dominate the “last mile” delivery market and knew that change was necessary. This seasoned provider of shipping, specialized logistics, and warehousing solutions has been serving the needs of companies across the U.S. in industries like manufacturing, technology, wholesale, retail, and home delivery for over 30 years. With a focus on enhancing supply chain control, cost-efficiency, and reliability, they offer comprehensive and customized services.
Over the past three years, the company has been shaking things up in the home delivery world by rolling out a suite of specialized logistics services. Their goal is to revolutionize the operations of both traditional retailers and e-commerce businesses.
In their quest to establish a strong presence in the U.S. home delivery market, the Client put together a comprehensive marketing plan that leveraged the power of both digital and outbound channels. The outcome is a full-spectrum strategy that optimizes conversion results from start to finish.
To execute this strategic plan, the Client made the decisive move to divide the marketing activities between its internal team, and an accomplished marketing agency– that’s us!
While we took on the critical role of early-stage prospecting and lead generation campaigns, the Client’s highly skilled in-house agents focused on executing activities further down the funnel.
We hit the ground running and made it happen!
We designed a 12-month appointment setting campaign to locate the perfect retail organizations and establish connections with the key players responsible for logistics and home delivery. Our team went on a hunt and engaged in conversations that not only boosted the Client’s credibility but also strengthened their position as a trusted logistics partner.
And as a result of our personalized messaging and outreach, the Client’s customers were convinced that the company was embracing digitization and keeping up with the fast-paced world of retail and last mile delivery. Our strategy effectively communicated the Client’s commitment to innovation and their ability to provide cutting-edge services that would help businesses stay ahead of the competition.
Our personalized messaging resonated with the target audience, who were impressed by the Client’s vision for the future of logistics.
By working closely with the Client and leveraging the power of digital and outbound marketing channels, we were able to create a full-spectrum strategy that not only generated leads but also helped to close deals. Our efforts allowed the Client to expand their presence in a new market segment with 3 new deals worth $6 million, plus other lucrative prospects in the pipeline.
Overall, our personalized messaging and outreach played a crucial role in the Client’s success, helping them to reach new heights and secure a place as a leader in the logistics industry.

The Story Of 4 Years of Market Research-Fueled Growth
Next up, let me introduce you to one of our all-star partners! I’m highlighting them here as one of our biggest and longest-term Clients from sunny Singapore! They’ve been killing it in the chauffer-driven service and rental car game for over two decades and have established themselves as the go-to for top-notch rental experiences in both Singapore and Malaysia.
With a team of friendly and knowledgeable staff, they don’t just meet customer expectations, they exceed them. Clean, well-maintained vehicles equipped with all the bells and whistles? Check. Exceptional, personalized service? Double check.
Now, Singapore is a city where owning a car can come at a steep price, making it a prime location for car rental companies to thrive. Our Client is one of many players in the thriving corporate vehicle leasing industry, offering both short-term and long-term car rentals.
With the business travel market heating up, especially with the emergence of smaller boutique players on Singapore’s real-time online car rental booking platform, the Client wanted to shift its focus to long-term rentals where they could truly stand out.
To get the most bang for their buck, the Client decided to put their in-house resources towards inbound activities while outsourcing the bulk of their outbound strategy to a third-party provider. This way, they could free up their internal team to tackle the more critical aspects of the sales process.
This is where we come in.
Our research was the secret ingredient that helped our Client reposition themselves and shine in the market. Our expert team put on their detective hats and scoured the corporate vehicle leasing industry to uncover the latest trends, competition, and customer preferences. With this information, we helped the Client stand out by highlighting their unique selling points.
We didn’t stop there! We also surveyed the Client’s loyal customers and gathered feedback to fine-tune our approach and deliver the best results possible.
With this knowledge in hand, we cooked up a custom marketing strategy that played to the Client’s strengths and tackled their challenges head-on. Our goal was to generate leads, spread the word, and increase brand awareness through phone, web, and social media.
We even took care of the Client’s database, ensuring that all the information was accurate and up-to-date. This freed up the Client to focus on what they do best, confident that their marketing was in good hands.
The results? Significant growth for the Client, with a surge in appointments booked and long-term rentals. Our research and marketing efforts were the recipe for success and a true testament to the power of a well-designed and well-executed marketing strategy.
30 Days to Smarter Marketing: The Power of Insights & Competitor Analysis For Global Reach
Initially, this Client was wary of bringing on a third-party lead generation vendor, but with their expansion efforts in full swing, they agreed to give us one month to prove our worth. And boy, did we deliver!
With the Client’s commitment to innovation in the retail industry with their advanced POS (Point-Of-Sale) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions, we knew that they were a company worth helping succeed. Despite their best efforts, they were struggling to establish a strong customer base in new countries such as Singapore, the UK, and Australia. The tried-and-true lead generation tactics that had served them well in their home country just weren’t cutting it in these unfamiliar territories.
Our team, armed with years of experience and market know-how, got straight to work. We utilized multiple channels, from emails to phone calls to social media, to engage with potential Clients and generate interest. And we didn’t stop there – we nurtured those previously identified cold leads, working tirelessly to build relationships and move them closer to making a purchase.
But we were more than just warm bodies, you know. We took a proactive approach in qualifying prospects, determining their fit for the Client’s offerings, and making sure their precious time was spent with the right people…
Those genuinely interested in their solutions.
With market insights and competitor analysis at our fingertips, we helped the Client stand out in a highly competitive market. And our understanding of local culture and language norms allowed their message to resonate with their target audience.
Finally, we made sure the Client’s sales reps could focus on what they do best– selling! We scheduled appointments with qualified prospects, allowing the sales team to have meaningful discussions and showcase the benefits of their offerings. This hands-on approach allowed the Client to establish a strong customer base in these new territories and cement their place as a leader in the retail tech world.
It’s safe to say that the Client’s expansion was a resounding success!
The results were so impressive that the Client renewed their contract with Callbox to expand further into other APAC and EU regions. Our one-month experiment turned into a long-lasting partnership, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to help the Client continue on their path of success.
Data Refinement Done Right For Marketing Success
When our latest Client, a renowned global media company with two decades of marketing mastery, tasked us with giving their customer database a much-needed update… we sprang into action. Our mission: to breathe new life into their leads and give them the tools they need to tackle the business world with confidence.
We got the ball rolling with a comprehensive Data Profiling campaign, diving into every detail to ensure accuracy. No stone was left unturned, no lead was left unverified. Our team hit the phones, cross-referenced information, and even tracked down the main switchboard’s number to make sure every contact was accounted for.
Next, we took a closer look at the sources of information and divided the leads into five categories, including “Profiled by Phone” and “Employment Validated.” And to keep things organized, we filled out a Q&A form for each call, ensuring that no verification process was overlooked.
To really get a sense of our Client’s prospects and their plans for the next 12 months, we divided their contacts into four technology segments– Big Data, Cloud Infrastructure, Desktop Virtualization, and Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity– and conducted surveys and analyzed whitepapers. All answers were then uploaded via links from our Client, giving them a comprehensive overview of their database.
The end result? A revitalized customer database brimming with relevant information and expertly categorized via our multi-channel survey campaign. Our Client was thrilled with the regular progress updates and our commitment to keeping them in the loop every step of the way. And, of course, the fact that we exceeded their expectations didn’t hurt either!
So, what have we learned? With collaboration and teamwork, even the most complex of projects can be a resounding success. And with us by their side, our Client can confidently tackle the ever-changing landscape of business, knowing that their database is up-to-date and ready for action.
Transcending Language And Delivering Results
When the world’s leading tech giant set its sights on expanding into the UK and APAC markets, they knew they needed a marketing partner who could help them achieve their goals. With so many options to choose from and the challenge of language barriers and cultural differences to consider, finding the right fit seemed like a Herculean task.
As seasoned and globally-diverse business development and marketing experts, we caught the Client’s eye. With a deep understanding of their needs, we launched a revolutionary ABM Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign.
Recognizing the Client’s concerns about language barriers, we went the extra mile by assembling a team of fluent multilingual speakers to help us tackle the challenge head-on. And the results spoke for themselves!
In addition to lead generation and appointment setting, we also provided valuable insights and recommendations on how to better penetrate the APAC and UK markets. Our team’s understanding of local culture and customs played a crucial role in helping the Client navigate these new territories with ease.
They were not only able to increase their reach, but they were also able to improve their brand reputation in these new markets. Our approach emphasized building genuine relationships with prospects, leading to higher customer loyalty and long-term success.

Rise in Sales-Ready Leads For A Cyber Security Firm
We recently had the privilege of working with a top-notch info security company based in the Big Apple, and boy oh boy, did they have a challenge for us! They had a sales team that was killing it with lead gen, but when it came to closing deals, they were hitting a bit of a rough patch.
We were referred to the Client by one of their top customers who also happens to be a long-time Callbox partner. We were tasked with implementing a 12-month account-based appointment setting campaign to help them score some sales meetings with the right people.
Our first move was to conduct market research and account selection. We honed in on a few high-impact potential customers and then sifted through all the prospects to create Ideal Account Profiles (IAPs) to determine which organizations to target and which to avoid.
This allowed us to prioritize candidates and segment them into tiers to enable the Client to tailor their engagement strategy to each group’s needs. Then, we calculated the number of companies in the Client’s market and the minimum number of ideal accounts that would help them reach their goals.
The lead qualification process was the bread and butter of our campaign. We gathered and evaluated all relevant data on potential prospects and finalize the target criteria to determine if we needed to expand or alter the list. The Client provided us with data on their target prospects, including CIOs, CTOs, IT managers, and other IT decision-makers, and we backed it up with additional data just in case.
We used active voice calls and email outreach to reach new and existing prospects, encouraging and following up with their teams, including decision-makers. And, we didn’t forget about social media touchpoints– we leveraged those to maximize our reach and engagement with prospects.
The outcome was phenomenal! We doubled the number of sales-qualified leads generated per month compared to the Client’s internal efforts and successfully reached all key objectives. Our methodical approach to lead qualification and targeted outreach allowed the Client to focus on improving their services and fully cater to their existing Clients’ needs, while also expanding their reach to other viable markets.
The success of our appointment setting campaign is proof positive that a well-executed lead qualification process is a game-changer. By thoroughly researching, profiling, and targeting the right prospects, we were able to help our Client achieve their goals and set the stage for continued success.

A family-owned agricultural business blooms into one of the largest greenhouses in North America– that’s some serious green-thumb talent right there!

This was a first for us– working with an agriculture Client in digital lead generation and appointment setting campaigns. But with our experience and resources in the industry, we were ready to roll up our sleeves and help this Client find new customer acquisition tactics.
We came up with a comprehensive outbound strategy, using the latest technology and industry best practices to make sure this Client’s growth continued. And the results? They speak for themselves! Not only did we meet their key objectives, but we exceeded their expectations. The Client acquired new customers and built lasting relationships, all thanks to the account-based tactics we employed during the campaign.
This campaign was a testament to the power of outbound account-based marketing, and how it can drive growth for businesses looking to expand.
And here’s the best part: we didn’t just deliver results and call it a day. We also guided the Client every step of the way and showed them the ropes of modern customer acquisition strategies.
The handoff was frictionless and we ensured that the Client was fully confident and equipped to run it on their own. It was as if they were experts in the field with a deep understanding of the latest technologies and best practices in lead generation.

Lead Nurturing and Beyond: Making The Most Of The Holiday Season and Keeping Customers Engaged
It was that time of year– the season of gifts, jingle bells, and… well, let’s be honest, the season of stress for businesses trying to maintain customer engagement. But our long-time CRM Client was ready to tackle the challenge head-on and put their trust in us to keep their customers connected during the holidays.
We started by tapping into the power of personalized greetings, encouraging our Client to send out well wishes to their customers with a personal touch. No bland “Happy Holidays” here! We recommended using each customer’s name and adding a custom message to show that they’re more than just a number in a database.
But we didn’t stop there. We also suggested sweetening the deal with special holiday promotions, giving customers a reason to stay engaged and make a purchase during the busy season. Our Client followed our advice, and the results were worth their weight in eggnog. They saw a noticeable bump in sales!
We also took advantage of the holiday spirit by sharing festive content through blogs, newsletters, and social media posts. This kept our Client’s customers in the loop and provided valuable information to help them navigate the craziness of the season.
And finally, we recommended ringing in the holidays with a virtual event or webinar. This gave our Client the chance to showcase their expertise, bring the community together, and keep customers engaged during the holiday season.
Thanks to our thoughtful and comprehensive approach, our Client was able to keep the holiday spirit alive and thriving in their customer base, proving that even the busiest time of year can be a time for growth and joy.

Overcoming Cultural Barriers By Building Rapport
“Empowering individuals and businesses to enhance their digital dexterity and employability!” That’s the goal of this Client, a globally renowned management consulting firm. However, the journey to bring this vision to fruition wasn’t without its hurdles.
In Singapore, the barriers to lifelong learning, lack of awareness, and costs associated with upskilling programs posed a challenge for the Client in attracting potential trainees. But our team was more than ready to overcome this and we devised a tailored approach to tackle these obstacles head-on.
We kicked things off by focusing on building rapport and relationships with prospects. By utilizing targeted campaigns on social media for individuals and a combination of email and telemarketing for businesses, we not only addressed the concerns of prospects but also heightened awareness of the Client’s offerings.
Personalization was key in our approach, and we took the time to understand each prospect’s unique needs. This enabled us to establish genuine connections and effectively communicate the value of the Client’s upskilling program.
And our efforts paid off! The personalized approach resulted in higher engagement and a greater willingness among prospects to participate in the program. We helped our Client overcome the challenges of attracting trainees and saw a significant increase in enrollment in their paid upskilling programs.
