NZ B2B Media Company On Track to Hit Targets with Callbox

The Client

The Client provides corporate video production services to a wide range of businesses and organizations in New Zealand. The company specializes in video projects for advertising, corporate communications, event coverage, and motion graphics.

The Challenge

The Client offers video production services to corporate and business customers all over New Zealand. The company maintains a portfolio of video projects used in internal and external communications, company profiles, corporate announcements, events coverage, customer testimonials, product guides, training resources, and promotional materials.

The company recently ramped up its customer acquisition objectives, with particular focus given to mid-sized organizations located in the Auckland and Hamilton areas. The Client wanted to grow its market share in the “Golden Triangle” region, where the company expects demand for corporate video productions to outpace the rest of the country.

In order to meet its new targets with the sales resources and manpower it currently has, the Client believes it’s going to need the help of a third-party agency doing much of the top-of-funnel prospecting legwork, so that its sales development team can exclusively focus on mid- to bottom-of-funnel stages.

The Callbox Solution

The Client partnered with Callbox after reviewing proposals from a number of marketing agencies. Callbox met all the Client’s requirements in terms of value and experience, with the Client saying that the extensive New Zealand records in Callbox’s proprietary database was a key determining factor.

Callbox then closely collaborated with the Client to plan out a 12-month appointment setting campaign that integrated one-on-one calls with targeted email outreach. The campaign’s overall goal was to introduce the Client’s video production services to relevant decision makers from companies in its target industries and to book qualified prospects for a meeting with the Client’s reps.

Appointment Setting

  1. Callbox compiled the target list which included various job titles relevant to the Client’s suite of video production services.
  2. The Client reviewed and approved the call script which was prepared by the Callbox campaign team. Aside from probing questions, the script also included items designed to gather other pertinent information from the prospects.
  3. Successful calls included contacts who expressed interest to know more or currently have a definite video production requirement. Prospects who agreed to meet with the Client’s reps over the phone or at their office were tagged as qualified appointments.

Email Marketing

  1. Callbox created the template for initial email outreach, while the Client provided the template used to send out additional materials.
  2. The Callbox team continuously tracked and refined each component of the email marketing campaign in order to maximize response rates.
  3. The Client received real-time campaign updates and helped plan email marketing cadence using Callbox Pipeline, the company’s proprietary CRM and marketing automation tool.

Results

The campaign began by initiating contact and nurturing warm leads through targeted email outreach. Accordingly, most of the results generated during the campaign’s first couple of weeks were almost exclusively related to email marketing initiatives, including average delivery rates of 98%, open rates of 33%, and CTRs of 7%.

Out of the 120 total qualified appointments, the Client expects to turn 75% (or 90) into sales-qualified opportunities. With average close rates of 60%, the Client can potentially generate around 54 new customers from the campaign within the next sales cycle.

Telecom Firm’s Campaign Enters Next Phase, Grows Reach in New Segments

The Client

The Client is the satellite communications unit of one of Asia’s largest telecom groups. The company specializes in both fixed and mobile satellite services, providing customized satellite solutions to corporate customers in industries such as oil and gas, shipping, transportation and logistics, banking, and broadcast.

The Challenge

The Client was already running a campaign with Callbox for one of their lines of business when they decided to double down on maritime satellite opportunities in Asia, as well as tap into additional EMEA markets

This leg of the campaign was focused on the Client’s two Inmarsat Fleet One offerings. Inmarsat Fleet One Coastal covers data and voice services for smaller recreational and fishing boats sailing closer to shore, while Inmarsat Fleet One Global gives access to bundled data and voice anywhere in the world. Both solutions are ideal for commercial vessels and fleets with modest data requirements.

In the first campaign, the emphasis was on potential resellers and end users of the Client’s land satellite services. Both the Client and the Callbox team picked up a great deal of insights about the target prospects and the overall market, which proved useful in refining the team’s campaign approach and the Client’s marketing strategy.

This time, as the focus shifts to maritime satellite communications, the new campaign’s main objective is to identify and qualify potential subscribers for its bundled Inmarsat services from shipping and maritime companies.

The Callbox Solution

Based on the Client’s targets and focused product and services, the Callbox team designed another Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign 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 GOALS

  • The Callbox team was to run a database profiling and phone-based conversations with prospects integrated with email touches
  • Manage the Client’s social media, web, and chat to enhance branding and engagement accuracy 

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

Account and Prospect Profiling

  1. The Client provided buyer persona profiles of the prospects that they wanted the outbound campaign to target. The profiles consisted of detailed demographic and firmographic segmentations
  2. Identified as the campaign’s primary targets were Persons in charge of Satellite services and communications
  3. The master contact list was segmented based on these personas, and was further grouped according to industry type.

Results

Overall, the two campaigns ran for 20 months, and generated 245 Sales Qualified Leads in total. 

The results showed that the Callbox team was able to consistently deliver an average of 12 appointments each month, which exceeded the Client’s target of 10 monthly appointments.

IT Firm Picks Callbox’s ‘Consultative Fit’, Hits Goals in Ongoing Campaign

The Client

The Client is a pure IT consulting and professional services company offering design, configuration, implementation, business analyst, and general consultancy services. The Client specializes in the security, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and Cloud services markets.

The Challenge

With over eight years of experience in the IT consulting and professional services space, the Client now ranks as one of the most trusted service providers in the industry and has successfully partnered with companies like Citrix Systems, AppSense, Blue Coat, and Apple (mobility).

The Client started out as a white-label supplier of IT services to vendors and resellers. These companies would subcontract the Client to perform services on their behalf, often without the end customers knowing about the Client’s involvement. Later on, the company refocused toward directly providing services to enterprises and organizations.

This move presented a bit of a branding conundrum for the company. The main challenge was finding a way to embed its extensive experience as an IT subcontractor for specific VDI, cloud services, and security verticals in the value proposition for its new business model.

For that reason, the Client undertook a massive marketing program that simultaneously focused on branding and customer acquisition. The customer acquisition plan highlighted nurturing leads in-house with the Client’s marketing team while delegating top-of-funnel prospecting activities to a third-party agency.

The Client chose Callbox as its outsourced marketing partner due to a number of factors, with the main one being the “consultative fit” that Callbox’s marketing solutions offered. The Client pointed out that taking a consultative approach to a project was their key differentiator and that Callbox was also able to demonstrate this by being more of a marketing advisor than a marketing agency.

Given the Client’s marketing goals, the challenge is two-fold:

  • Finding and identifying qualified opportunities for the Client’s customer acquisition efforts
  • Generating awareness about the Client’s different IT consulting and professional services

The Callbox Solution

Both the Callbox team and the Client agree that an Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign best meets the latter’s requirements. The campaign primarily consists of:

  • Account-Based Multi-Channel Lead Management which utilized Voice, Email, Web, Chat, Webinar, and Social Media
  • Sales Enablement & Support which covered 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 run the campaign into weekly or biweekly segments, with each segment focusing exclusively on a specific solution that the Client offers. These include BlueCoat, Zscaler, Radware, Apple, and CheckPoint—along with general consultancy services, business analyst services, and other IT project services.
  • Set meetings with qualified prospects for the Client’s consultants.

Below is the campaign’s two-step process:

Account Research and Selection

  • The Client specified their target industries, locations, and decision makers.
  • Callbox filtered the Client’s ideal customer profile which served as a basis for identifying qualified accounts.
  • Callbox compiled a list of potential contacts to target which was reviewed and approved by the Client

Account and Prospect Profiling

  • The Client provided buyer persona profiles of the prospects that they want the outbound campaign to engage 
  • The profiles consisted of detailed demographic and firmographic segmentations
  • Qualified prospects were those identified to be interested to know or have the need for the Client’s services.

Results

The 6-month Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation and Appointment Setting campaign generated 58 Sales Qualified Leads, 142 Marketing Qualified Leads, and 431 Follow-ups

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.

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.

HR Market Leader Wins It All Back and More with Callbox

The Client

The Client prides itself with a 33-year experience in providing over 10,000 customers with low cost, simple and very effective payroll solutions.

The Challenge

The Client’s market dominion was somewhat threatened when payroll system providers in New Zealand offered the same or similar packages on software functionalities like Auditing, Templates, Tracking Capabilities, Costing Statistics, Pay History, Contributions and Help Desk Support, which deflated the Client’s huge number of customer database by 20%.

The competitors were seen to be quite aggressive in generating more customers, so the Client decided to combat the move by undertaking feisty initiatives like outsourcing a lead generation company who would help them look for new customers and win back those they’ve lost.

The Callbox Solution

Callbox’s multi-channel marketing program was designed to help clients maximize the full potential of a well-profiled and managed database to get them in front of their target prospects with the right message, at the right time.

In the said campaign, the Client required the Callbox team to generate leads using two different approaches for lost customers and new targets. The generated leads were differentiated into two categories, and from which the Client customized their solution/offers:

Concept 1 – Send Mail

A sequence of emails are sent to all unique entries contained in the Target List. The call result tag in the pipeline triggers the status change in the LN Tool, and a specific email copy is automatically sent. Below is a reference of email copy with corresponding call tag:

  • Prospects (new targets) who agreed to speak with the Client’s representative to discuss about the product /solution and its benefits

Approach:

This type of target customers were sent initial email copies that contained FAQs about their pain points like Holiday Pays, Leave Rates calculations, etc. As soon as the prospect opened the email or took action like clicked the Client’s website or accessed any link in the email, which were tracked real-time by the Callbox team, the contact was then scheduled in the Callbox PIpeline to be called by the agent and set for an office, online demo or phone appointment with the Client’s specialists.

  • Lost customers who agreed to speak again with the Client’s specialists and were interested to know about new offers

Approach:

For winback customers, the initial email copies included cost- and time-saving offers from the Client such as systems upgrade at the same package cost, restructured payment schemes and a sample comparative script of how their old service would look like upon return. A day after the initial copies were sent out, whether or not the prospect had opened or taken any action on the email or not, the agent made follow-up calls to those targets and set them for office, online demo or phone appointments with the Client’s specialists.

In addition, the agent incorporated a customer profiling activity during follow-up calls which made the database more accurate by updating contact information like the prospect’s name, company name and address, contact numbers, email addresses and social media accounts.

Results

The Callbox team generated a total of 84 Leads: 11 Office and 35 Phone Appointments and 38 Online Demonstration Bookings which were all part of the 2,343 Positive Contacts that included warm follow-ups. Out of the 84 Leads, 38 (40%) were winback customers.

Callbox’s multi-channel marketing platform was effectively utilized for the payroll leader’s lead generation campaign and which realized their goals to win back lost customers and acquire new ones worth nurturing.

Global Printing Manufacturer Hits Home Run with Callbox Profiling Campaign

The Client

The Client is a global manufacturer of coding, printing and laser marking products, fluids, and accessories for the product identification industry. The company has over 325,000 units installed worldwide, serving 135 countries, and is widely considered as an expert in continuous ink jet (CIJ), laser marking, thermal inkjet (TIJ), thermal-transfer overprinting (TTO), case coding and labeling, and wide array printing.

The Challenge

The Client wanted to cleanse their Asia Pacific list which contains more than 10,000 contacts, most of which are obsolete and inaccurate. The campaign was to zero-in on the manufacturing industry, using Customer Profiling for basic information such as name, job title, company, address, phone and email. This also includes segmenting the list according to each contact’s location in the Asia Pacific region.

The Callbox Solutions

Based on the Client’s requirements, Callbox designed Customer Profiling and Account-based Marketing Lead Generation & Appointment Setting campaigns which consisted of:

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

THE GOALS

  • The Callbox team was to cleanse and profile the Client’s list o eliminate duplicate entries and supply missing elements with accurate information
  • Call each contact to validate or gather the following information, and obtain additional contacts:
  • The number of people or machines where a product goes to a process of labeling, marking or printing
  • How they code or mark on their product (e.g. expiry date, manufacturing date, batch number, barcodes) 
  • To book appointments with prospects who wanted to be contacted by the Client

Callbox standards dictate a thorough and meticulous process of delivering output to its clients. For this particular campaign, the courses of action that took place were as follows:

  1. The Client sent their contact list over to Callbox
  2. Callbox then cross-referenced the list with their own database to eliminate duplicate entries and supply the missing elements with accurate information.
  3. Callbox assigned 10 expert agents for the Customer Profiling campaign. 
  4. Each batch of completed profiles was forwarded to Callbox’s Email Marketing Team for re-verification, as well as lead generation using a prescribed email template. 
  5. All contacts which resulted in bounced emails were sent back to the calling team for reconfirmation.

Results

The Client was pleased with the success of the Customer Profiling campaign. As a result, the Client recommended Callbox to their Global Visibility Manager, who in turn partnered with Callbox for two more campaigns, targeting India, Korea, and the US.

Overall, Callbox ran 3 Profiling campaigns for the Client in six months, and delivered 13,700 Profiled Contacts, and 185 Qualified Appointments.

Callbox Telephone Survey “Primes the Pump” for Market Expansion

The Client

The Client is a pump manufacturing and mechanical engineering firm, which produces and markets various types of pumps for buildings, industrial facilities, OEMs, water supply, and other uses, and currently operates in 55 countries with a total workforce of more than 19,000 employees and annual revenues of around $3.9 billion.

The Challenge

As part of the company’s planned expansion push into a number of North American markets, the Client initially commissioned a phone survey to uncover areas of risk and opportunity:

  • The target market size, growth drivers, revenue potential, and possible expansion hurdles
  • The Client’s competitive position in each of the target markets
  • Market characteristics and potential expansion strategies

The campaign plan included conducting data gathering from 11 states in the US to be completed within 25 days. 

However, given the limited size of its in-house market research team and the tight timetable involved, the Client decided to contract a third party to handle the project.

The Client chose Callbox after a thorough screening process, citing the latter’s track record in developing and managing campaigns with very tight schedules, as well as it’s experience in reaching out to contacts in different target geographical areas.

The Callbox Solution

Callbox designed an Account-Based Marketing Lead Generation & Survey which consisted of:

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

THE GOALS

  • The Callbox team was to gather data or conduct a quick survey on target contacts’ perception of the Client’s products to help the company better assess its market position.
  • Customers of the Client’s direct competitors were also asked for their feedback about their current suppliers to help them determine the company’s competitive position.

Amid the survey campaign, however, the Client saw a need to do an appointment setting as the Callbox team uncovered pain points from respondents that required urgent response from their end.

Results

Callbox wrapped up the campaign within 8 months, generating a total of 165 Sales Qualified Leads, 135 Marketing Qualified Leads, and 1,625 completed respondents. This exceeded the project’s requirements by a significant margin.

So they looked for a reliable telemarketing provider with significant regional experience and robust resources to augment their current activities. After searching and comparing several service providers online, the Client was impressed by Callbox’s long track record in the B2B lead generation industry, and immediately penned a deal.
