The automation program had numerous paths that would be used to engage prospects and drive them to the product brochure over time. Close to 2,000 emails were sent to over 800 prospects who downloaded the top-of-funnel ebook. There were 730 unique opens and ultimately 16 sales qualified leads as a result. With these learnings, we were able to develop additional content offers and automation tracks that drove hundreds of additional SQLs.
When we started working with Kodak, they had Pardot as their email marketing solution but they weren’t taking advantage of its marketing automation capabilities. We started off with a single content marketing automation campaign targeted at packaging converter owners in order to provide a proof of concept. This campaign included four pieces of content designed to capture prospects at the beginning of the sales cycle (addressing pain points) and nurture them with pieces that addressed the process of incorporating the solution into their business. Ultimately, leads that engaged with various pieces were sent a product brochure. Once this was downloaded, the system alerted the appropriate salesperson to reach out directly and set up a meeting.
