  3. 3. ProofreadNOW! Challenge: Inability to Capture Leads Successfully Prior to starting with HubSpot, ProofreadNOW used to rely on referrals, direct mail and Pay-Per-Click to attract new customers. Conni Eversull, the company’s sales and marketing director, soon realized that this type of marketing was ineffective for their business. “We needed to capture information about the people who were visiting our website,” she said. “While we were paying for Pay-Per-Click ads, we weren’t capturing any data,” Conni added.
  4. 4. ProofreadNOW! Solution: Growing Contacts & Leads with Landing Pages ProofreadNOW started using HubSpot to extract information about its target customer base. Conni created custom landing pages, such as educational eBooks and whitepapers, to attract readers and successfully collect lead information. “We can see who becomes a prospect, who becomes a customer, and then I can better target my marketing campaigns,” she said. This approach has helped ProofreadNOW to build a core lead database. “I would rather have a smaller, more qualified list to market to than some big broad list,” Conni added.
  5. 5. ProofreadNOW! Solution: sd Closing the Loop with Lead Nurturing & Salesforce ProofreadNOW uses HubSpot’s lead nurturing program and Salesforce integration to close the loop and successfully capture leads. With HubSpot's closed loop marketing, Conni can track leads from their arrival at the site to their conversion. Such tools enable ProofreadNOW to determine its most efficient marketing channels. HubSpot's lead nurturing software also contributes to the increase in ProofreadNOW’s sales conversions by enabling the company to set up automated custom emails and follow-up with interested leads. Conni has found great value in the opportunity to link her lead tracking data to While the automated email campaigns engage leads over time, the Salesforce integration enables Conni to provide immediate and personal responses as necessary.
