The Challenge

Sales and Marketing. They don’t always get along, do they?

Unless you’ve got them both pointed in the same direction, focused on the same thing, and working hand-in-hand towards the same goal, that is.

Which is what Sharper B2B did for Taxually with this campaign targeting Amazon Aggregators.

This is a case study in perfectly aligning sales and marketing, and ensuring they work in harmony to achieve a common goal… delivering net new revenue.

The Solution

As this was the first-time marketing and sales were working closely together at Taxually, the focus was on getting the basics right whilst ensuring EVERYONE was in the loop with what was happening.

Working alongside the Taxually sales team Sharper built a complete database for the campaign, sourcing contact information for the 4 identified role types at a purposefully tight target list of 95 Aggregators.

Email was then the main campaign channel used, along with paid LinkedIn, with the audience segmented into 16 different workflows to deliver the right message to the right people. The campaign landing page was also built with dynamic sections that would show personalised copy and graphics depending on the audience the viewer sat in.

And it was lead scoring and live-tracking those campaign interactions in close collaboration with sales that was the key to success with this campaign.

Prospects were prioritised for the Sales team who were then able to use the role type specific messaging to great effect, ensuring consistency with the overall campaign and relevance for the individual.
