Callbox Delivered Results For Global Logistics Leader

The Client

The Client is one of the world’s leading logistics companies, spawned in 220 countries and territories, providing parcel and document shipping, freight forwarding, and logistics services to all business types and sizes.

The Challenge

As part of their marketing strategy, the Client regularly holds live events such as product or service launches, awards, and symposiums for the industries they serve. But, the last two years have been quite challenging as the pandemic brought drastic change to the way people do business, withholding all planned in-person events for the next two years. 

So, they decided to take their marketing efforts online, and reached out to a number of lead generation providers to find an alternative platform to use in order to pursue all scheduled events for the next two years.

The Callbox Solution

Based on the Client’s needs, Callbox designed a Webinar and Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign which consisted of:

  • Account-Based Multi-Channel Lead Management which included Voice, Email, Web, Chat, Social Media, and Webinar
  • Sales Enablement & Support that provided Team Training, Account Setup, and Back Office Sales Support
  • Tools & Subscriptions to Callbox Pipeline and HubSpot CRM
  • Account Management with Strategy Building, Reporting, and Product Knowledge

THE GOALS

  • The Callbox team was to invite prospects to the Clients series of webinars
  • To generate leads or MQLs
  • Book appointments for the Client’s sales team or SQLs
  • Manage the database by profiling all contacts
  • Promote the products, services, and events via web and social media

The campaign involved two key steps:

Account Research and Selection

  1. The Client specified target industries, location, and relevant contacts for the campaign
  2. Callbox refined the Client’s ideal customer profile (ICP) which served as a basis for identifying qualified accounts
  3. Callbox then compiled a list of potential contacts to target which was reviewed and approved by the Client

Account and Prospect Profiling

  1. The Client provided target decision makers for the Callbox team to reach out which consisted of detailed demographic and firmographic segmentations
  2. The buyer personas designated as the campaign’s primary targets were Procurement Manager, COO, Chief Supply Chain Officer, VP for Operations/Manufacturing/Logistics, IT Director, Director of Planning, Inventory Director, VP of Business Intelligence, C-level, President
  3. The master contact list was segmented based on these personas, and was further grouped according to industry type

Results

Overall, the Webinars gathered a total of 250 Confirmed Attendees, and the 6-month ABM Lead Generation & Appointment Setting Campaign delivered 92 Sales Qualified Leads, and 42 Marketing Qualified Leads.

Callbox Aced Appointment Setting for Accounting Expert

The Client

The Client bears unmatched experience in providing redefined Accounting, Bookkeeping and Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF) to its partner clients, addressing specific pain points of modern accounting practice.

The Challenge

The accounting expert serves as an integral extension of its clients, ensuring all tasks are accurately completed. However recently, competition became fierce as competitors started to offer equally interesting services and even used enticing branding images which made the Client indistinguishable from its industry peers.

The Client decided on offering a FREE-TRIAL to target customers. Well aware that this required expertise in pursuing prospects and getting them to agree to meet with the Client’s consultants to discuss signing up for the free trial, the Client searched for an appointment setting company that best fit their needs and chose Callbox.

The Callbox Solution

Appointment Setting

Callbox ran a Customer Profiling campaign along with Appointment Setting to update the Client’s database and to build a new set of qualified prospects.

1. An initial email copy which contained news releases about the Client’s FREE TRIAL offer were sent to target customers.

2. Active emails from prospects who responded, clicked links and visited the Client’s company website were saved for follow-up calls.

3. Responses also gave the Callbox team the opportunity to filter the most available prospects to touch base with via the CTA link (scheduling option) in the email copies.

4. Bounces were filtered and saved for follow-up calls for the agents to update as they speak with the prospect.

Customer Profiling

Aside from targeting to gain a new set of clients, the Appointment Setting program aimed to exhibit a differentiated service by giving their customers a first-hand experience of the service.

1. With the help of the Pipeline Lead Nurture Tool, the team was able to profile the contacts in the database: information like contact name, address, contact numbers and email address were updated.

2. Initial email copies with replies were set for follow-up call – appointments were set for prospects who agreed not only to the FREE TRIAL but also for those who were merely interested to discuss about the Client’s services.

3. To ensure that appointments were not missed, the Callbox team sent calendar invites to prospects to remind them of their appointment schedule.

4. And with Callbox’s SMART Calling system, a hefty number of prospects was reached by the Callbox team to speak with the Client’s specialists and agreed to a FREE TRIAL.

Results and Return on Investments

The first four weeks were the busiest days of the campaign period as the Callbox team was juggling between getting together a fitting list of contacts to profile and setting appointments with those contacts at the same time, but successfully delivered 11 solid appointments.

Between the 5th and 8th weeks, with the Callbox team effectively done with the initial calls, follow-up calls came out more productive as most of the prospects the team spoke with were already knowledgeable of the free trial and have learned of the service’s benefits from other prospects via testimonial videos linked through the follow-up emails. This phase of the campaign generated 13 more appointments for the accounting expert.

The last 4 weeks (9th to 12th) had the Callbox team equally busy but more delighted as follow-ups that were nurtured during the start of the campaign eventually converted into appointments and impressed the Client with 15 appointments at the closing.

Callbox Lends B2C Expertise to Debt Management Firm in AU-wide Campaign

The Client

The Client is a long-established, family-run business providing a variety of financial solutions tailored for individuals and households throughout Australia. Its main lines of services include same-day small loans, car loans, and business loans. In addition, the Client is a mortgage broker offering home loans and is also a Registered Debt Agreement Administrator helping
customers with debt relief and bankruptcy avoidance.

The Challenge

The Client is among the country’s many credit repair and debt relief companies offering Part IX Debt administration, which are services that help customers handle debt and avoid personal bankruptcy. The Client is looking to expand its share of this growing sector with its unique value proposition centered around having “the fairest fee structure in the market” as well as its reputation as an established industry player.

While there are ample opportunities to increase its customer base for debt agreement solutions, the Client also faces a number of hurdles when it comes to marketing and promoting these services.

Regulations related to the aggressive marketing of debt agreements and cases of misrepresentation by other debt relief providers have made finding potential customers even more challenging.

Accordingly, the Client decided to focus its debt agreement marketing initiatives only on individuals who have already expressed some level of interest in its other loan services and have communicated with the Client in the recent past. This ensured that the target prospects are not entirely cold while, at the same time, providing the Client with the needed information to refine the outreach effort.

Based on these initial requirements, the Client was able to come up with a list of potential customers to target with its debt agreement offer. The plan called for the Client’s in-house consultants to contact qualified prospects and find out how its solutions fit with their current financial situation.

To maximize their consultants’ productivity, the Client opted to hire the services of a third-party provider for carrying out the initial touch points and qualifying activities. The Client chose Callbox because of the latter’s experience in planning and executing Australia-wide lead generation campaigns as well as its roster of clients in the heavily-regulated financial services sector.

The Callbox Solution

The Callbox team put together a phone-based lead generation program designed for a B2C campaign. Due to the nature of the project (i.e., aimed at consumers), it was determined that the best approach would be to engage prospects solely through live conversations without integrating other channels into the mix.

The main goal of the campaign revolved around identifying prospects willing to find out more about how the Client could help them in their current financial situation. Some key activities of the lead generation campaign include:

1. The client provided the Callbox team with records to be contacted. The list only included individuals who have interacted with the Client in the past such as through a loan application. As is standard practice in Callbox campaigns, the list was thoroughly profiled and validated before being used.

2. Campaign materials and collaterals, including call scripts, were produced in close consultation with the Client to ensure compliance.

3. Agents qualified every prospect with probing questions that identified their suitability and willingness to further engage with the Client’s debt counselors. Prospects having personal debt, net assets, and disposable income within a given range were tagged as qualified leads.

Results

The entire campaign ran for a total of nine months or 198 days (at 22 days/month) given that the Client renewed its contract with Callbox several times after the initial pilot phase. The following table shows a monthly breakdown of some key indicators throughout the campaign duration:

Additionally, the campaign was able to yield the following metrics in terms of activity, reach, and response:

• Reach rates of up to 55% with an average of 31%. By comparison, a reach rate of 15% is considered acceptable while 30% is quite good.
• Response rates of over 18% with an average of 11%, which is in line with phone prospecting benchmarks of 9% to 10% for this type of list.

All in all, the nine-month campaign produced a total of 505 qualified leads handed over for further engagement with the Client’s in-house consultants. By the Client’s own estimates, between 70% to 80% of the leads are expected to become customers within six months after the campaign. As such, the Client is looking to potentially generate around 354 to 404 new customers for its Part IX Debt Agreement dministration services.

Callbox Electrified Success For Energy Retail Lead In 21 Days

The Client

The Client is an electricity retailer who aims to empower consumer choice by providing options to better manage energy costs. Their extensive energy retail experience dates back to 1964.

The Challenge

With over 4 decades of electricity retail leadership both in their headquarters in Amsterdam and Singapore branch, the Client has built a strong business partnership with their clients – a relationship backed by trust and reliability inspiring them to create more electricity management options at the least cost.

Market competition is inevitable and the Client embraces this reality. So despite the strong business-client foundation they lean on, they decided to take advanced marketing steps that would keep them ahead in the game which included outsourcing to a seasoned and result-oriented multi-channel lead generation provider.

Results and Return on Investments

The first week was focused on updating contact details but with Callbox’s innovative tools and calling processes, the team was able to reach a good number of prospects and have set 6 appointments. At the end of the first month, a period of 21 days, a total of 22 appointments were set and 6 leads completed but expectations were exceeded when out of the 22 appointments, 2 were converted into sales.

As more contact details were updated in the second month, more active responses were received which resulted to 23 appointments and 8 leads.

In the third campaign month, 30 prospects showed high interest on the new price plan and have agreed to appointments while 8 considered to upgrade later.

The fourth month saw an all-time high with 34 appointments set and 12 leads completed.

The Callbox Solution

Customer Profiling

Alongside the Appointment Setting Program, Callbox ran Customer Profiling to update the Client’s database and at the same time build a new set of qualified contacts.

1. Two sets of initial email copies were sent separately: one for current customers that were due for record updating and another for new customers who might consider switching providers.

2. Active emails from prospects who responded, clicked links and visited the Client’s company website were saved for follow-up calls.

3. Bounces were also filtered and saved for follow-up calls for the agents to update as they speak with the prospect.

Appointment Setting

The Client ran an Appointment Setting Program not only to gain new customers but also to keep the current ones. The main goal was to offer new Value Plans and to share knowledge on easy steps to switch service.

1. With the help of the Pipeline Lead Nurture Tool, the team was able to profile and categorize prospects into two:
• Those interested to change or upgrade their service plans; and
• Those who preferred to keep their current service until contracts were due up but wanted to know more about the new packages

2. Appointments were set for both prospect types.

3. With Callbox’s SMART Calling system, the team was able to reach a good number of prospects to speak with the Client’s specialists with no appointments missed.

The Client

The Client is a 20-year old interior design and renovation expert that provides a holistic architectural service from conceptual design, implementation, and support for corporate and retail clients through the latest trends in interior design solutions and high quality workmanship.

The Challenge

Since inception, the Client has been making its mark in the architectural design industry which made it a three-time awardee of Superbrands. However, years after, technology innovation and tough market competition brought the need to strategize, and to do some process improvement which required focusing on customer acquisition and profiling.

In addition to its consulting packages, the Client also provides managed services including interim management, health information management, executive search, medical coding, and project staffing support.

The Challenge

By some estimates, the outsourced revenue cycle management (RCM) market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 26.5% in the next two years, making it an ideal time for mid-tier RCM consulting firms to capture opportunities for growth.

Increased requirements for convenience and transparency have created bigger challenges for hospital departments and staff involved in RCM. This, in turn, has fueled the demand for RCM-aligned solutions including consulting and advisory services.

With its nationwide footprint and a portfolio of differentiated services, the Client is well-positioned to take a significant slice of this high-growth market.

To achieve its short- and medium-term business goals, the Client has put together a robust marketing plan that included a combination of branding and sales-oriented initiatives. A key program in its marketing strategy is to leverage live conversations with hospital executives for driving awareness and interest in its end-to-end RCM solutions.

Having little internal expertise and resources for a direct marketing campaign that spans the entire United States, the Client decided to work with an outsourced lead generation agency with extensive experience in the healthcare consulting space.

Callbox’s deep domain knowledge of the Client’s target vertical and its capabilities for executing a campaign of this scope were the main reasons why the Client chose to work with Callbox.

The Callbox Solution

It was determined that Callbox’s integrated marketing strategies would be a good fit for achieving the Client’s current marketing objectives. For that reason, three main components made up the overall campaign plan: appointment setting, email marketing, and social media.

  3. The master contact list was segmented based on these personas, and was further grouped according to industry type.

Results and Investments

Callbox Webinar Event and ABM Campaign Mined Success For Jewelry ERP

The Client

The Client is a 25-year old technology solution and business consulting provider, and a Microsoft business partner who largely carries Microsoft dynamics products in the Middle East.

The Challenge

The Client started to provide technology and business solutions more than a couple of decades ago, and has built a huge database of customers despite the challenges encountered.

They recently launched an ERP software for jewelries that would provide reports that are useful in increasing business profitability. However, the target market was quite conservative, not easily convinced to engage in software solutions for business advancement, and still preferred to do business the old way like word of mouth and inbound.

That became one big challenge for the Client which impacted customer acquisition and expansion, and eventually called for external assistance. This made the Client decide to outsource lead generation and appointment setting campaigns from a third party provider.

The Callbox Solution

Engaging in outsourcing the first time was another challenge to beat. The Client had to look up several lead generation agencies online before they finally trimmed down the list into three, and finally decided on Callbox.

Callbox designed a Webinar and Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign for the Client which consisted of:

  • Account-Based Multi-Channel Lead Management which included Voice, Email, Web, Chat, Webinar, and Social Media
  • Sales Enablement & Support through Team Training, Account Setup, and Back Office Sales Support
  • Tools & Subscriptions to the Callbox Pipeline and HubSpot CRM
  • Account Management via Strategy Building, Reporting, and Product Knowledge

  • The Callbox team was to do a customer profiling to validate the contact information in the database by sending initial emails that contain an overview of the jewelry ERP software
  • Prospects who would actively respond were to be followed up via voice or calling channel, and invite to the webinar
  • Prospects who would agree to speak with the Client will be booked for either a phone or online demo with the Client’s consultants

Below is the two-step campaign process:

Account Research and Selection

  1. The Client specified their target industries, location, and relevant contacts
  2. Callbox refined the Client’s ideal customer profile (ICP) which served as a basis for identifying qualified accounts
  3. Callbox came up with a list of potential contacts to target which was reviewed and approved by the Client.

  2. Identified as the campaign’s primary targets were Shareholders, Managing Director, CEO, CFO, IT Manager, Accountants
  3. The master contact list was segmented based on these personas, and was further grouped according to industry type

Results

The Client knew how apprehensive the target prospects towards the jewelry software would be, and the possible campaign results. Contrary to their expectations, they were surprised at how the Callbox team managed to carry out success despite the circus-like monthly lead results.

The Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign delivered 85 Sales Qualified Appointments, and the Webinar gathered 170 RSVPs.

The campaign results exceeded the Client’s expectations.

Precision Engineering Company Executes Precise Rebranding with Callbox

The Client

The client is the Singapore arm of an industrial equipment supplier based in Germany, specializing in motion and fluid control technologies used in advanced production lines worldwide. The company’s product portfolio includes actuators, air preparation, fittings, tubing, pressure switches, vacuum, and valves.

The Challenge

The Client has a long and illustrious company history that includes the invention of the first inline lubricator in 1927 and a series of breakthrough innovations in several pneumatic fluid and motion control technologies. Its products and expertise are presently used in numerous manufacturing facilities worldwide for improving equipment productivity and efficiency.

In 2015, as part of its efforts to transform itself into a truly world-class engineering company, the Client consolidated several of its divisions under a single brand and recently carried out a major overhaul of its webstore to realign with its new branding initiatives. Aside from its extensive global network of distributors, the Client is able to offer its solutions to its target customers through online catalogs.

While these moves are expected to create favorable long-term opportunities, the new brand rollout and webstore revamp bring some key short- to medium-term challenges that the Client needs to address right away. In terms of near-term marketing activities, the challenge is two-fold:

  1. Informing its existing customers of the rebranding and the site renovation in a way that drives both interest and awareness
  2. Identifying specific needs and inquiries from their customers and prospects, which can then be turned into actionable insights

The Callbox Solution

Given both the Client’s current strategic situation and its immediate marketing goals, it was determined that Callbox’s precision-oriented lead generation solutions would be an effective approach at enhancing the Client’s rebranding and customer outreach efforts. Accordingly, the campaign plan consisted of two main components: (1) customer profiling and (2) lead generation.

Database Profiling

To guarantee the quality of data to be used in the campaign, the list underwent thorough customer profiling, which involved manually validating and verifying each database record and field.

  • Agents called every contact on the list in order to check and update all pertinent information.
  • Callbox’s customer profiling package ensured that every entry on the list contained complete, accurate, relevant, and timely information on a valid decision-maker.
  • Once completely profiled, every record on the list represented a contact having any of the above-mentioned job titles working in a manufacturing company located within any of the four APAC countries mentioned earlier.

Lead Generation

With its award-winning lead generation expertise, Callbox was well-positioned to help the client meet the two main challenges brought on by its recent rebranding program. In a nutshell, the lead generation activities of the campaign included:

  • The Callbox team engaged the Client’s target contacts through live phone conversations in order to touch base and introduce the rebranded solutions.
  • Callbox distributed the company’s Express catalogs to qualified contacts in Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore. The Client’s pneumatic catalogs were disseminated to qualified contacts in New Zealand.
  • Agents then set up follow-up phone appointments with hot leads and inquiries.

Callbox Brings Back Sunny Days for Solar Leader

The Client

In 2016, a study showed that 39% of all new electricity generation capacity in the US came from solar while a year earlier showed that solar employment has overtaken oil and gas as well as coil employment. The Client is a proud contributor to these statistics – a leader in construction and home improvement who empowers the community it serves to lead a better life with clean, sustainable and economically advantageous solar energy solutions.

The Challenge

The solar energy provider has been enjoying the warm welcome of NJ and NY households for more than 50 years now – allowing their homes and businesses to be improved by the Client through service packages that include custom designs, professional solar installation and best purchase options, until several issues arose in 2012 warning consumers of solar energy as a threat to electric grid operators – a battle among energy providers which loomed collapse in the solar business.

The campaigns waged by electric monopolies against solar energy use caused a great decline in the Client’s revenues, thus generating other issues which compelled the need for a much competitive marketing strategy that can battle the then on-going, intense energy wars.

In 2015, the Client set to complete 400 installations. However, 160 or 40% did not sign a contract and took other options instead. The Client’s revenue fell short of $1,600,000 (at an average of $10,000 per package).

“The threatening scenario has to end” the Client thought. They needed to gain the lost targets (customers and revenue) back so they implemented an in-house telemarketing campaign with the hopes of recalling those who retracted from the deal, but ended up with dismal results. With this, the Client decided to outsource.

The Callbox Solution

Since the problem sprung from reports about utilities that waged a campaign against the solar industry, Callbox proposed an “eye for an eye” solution to the solar leader – an information drive via Email Marketing and Appointment Setting program which the solar leader approved.

Email Marketing and Lead Nurturing

Utilizing the winning capabilities of Pipeline Lead Nurture Tool to send the right message to the right prospect at the right time, PDF brochures containing links to comprehensive information and answers to customers’ possible queries about the true benefits of using solar panels were delivered to target customers.

Aside from validating the email address and other important information of the contacts, the lead nurturing process helped the Callbox team to be able to grab the prospect’s’ attention, educate them on how they can save money from using solar energy at home and and got them engaged to hear the Client’s better offer. This has eased the process of setting appointments between the prospect’ and the Client’s solar consultants.

Appointment Setting

After the initial copies were sent out, all actions taken by the prospects like replies, clicked links and downloads were tracked and configured based on lead scores to determine their reachability – who and when to call.

The call process was quite rigid as the callers were required to completely gather the important information from the prospects and have at least three, if not all five, probing questions answered, for the Client to provide the prospects with the best solar solution package.

Results

Powered by Callbox Pipeline’s SMART Calling system, the Callbox team reached a significant number of prospects, exceeding the Client’s expectations.

  • 240 Total Appointments were produced from the campaign (128 or 80% out of the 160 target customers regained, and additional 112 new target customers were acquired by the Callbox team)
  • 204 (85%) of the 240 were converted to proposals and eventually closed
  • The Client previously targeted a total of $4,000,000 net revenue for 2015. However, the campaign production of 204 plus the current 240 customers combined, brought a total $4,440,000.00 net revenue or 11% higher than the earlier target.

Callbox Made Swift Success for US Top Car Insurer

The Client

The Client is one of America’s largest publicly held personal lines property and casualty insurers, serving more than 16,000 households for more than 85 years now.

The Challenge

Protect people and their belongings is the Client’s commitment that drives them to continually innovate by providing top-notch auto insurance and coverage on and off the road: new auto insurance packages comprising personalized policy, rewards, roadside services and tools and resources that offer information, deals, apps etc. were recently launched which the auto insurer urgently wanted to offer to customers, however it also required a more tactical marketing program which their marketing department lacked. So they made the intelligent decision to expedite achievement of project goals – outsource a lead generation program from an equally customer satisfaction-committed
provider, Callbox.
