  • Everything we did was geared towards driving membership and revenue. While we still want as many members as possible we know that keeping members active is far more important than just adding as many as possible. Also pushing your product down someone's throat is not the way to gain customers.
  • I work on the enterprise side of jigsaw doing lead gen/nurturing emails so I’m not going to spend a ton of time talking about our member emails, but like I mentioned we realized pretty early that we needed our community members to be as active as possible, as the more active they are the better the data in our database is. We have since implemented loyalty programs rewarding our most active members, notifying members how close they are to reaching the next level of membership and how they can get there quicker. We want to be a place of value that a member of our community will come to every day to see what we have for them, and in this case will open all of our emails to see what we are doing for them.
  • When we first realized that much of our lead gen efforts were being wasted and that the percentage of closed business coming from these efforts was lower then we wanted, so we knew we needed to change things. We started doing a couple things, one was looking for marketing automation tools, and seeing all of the amazing things that you could do with them. The basics that everyone needs to take advantage of are the scoring/ drip campaigns/ and the tracking. These are what automation is built on, and it is an amazing way to get everyone on the same page and really understand what people want.
  • With Marketo and Data in the cloud my sales team can now control who I market to this is especially important for those reps out there that have less than ideal territories. I set up nurturing drip campaigns, and the sales rep can now go into an account of a current lead, see how many more contacts at the account Jigsaw has, upload them into Salesforce, and add them into the Marketo campaign I created, instantly inserting them into the start of a flow in which they receive the informational value add emails I referred to earlier.
  • Since implementing a Nurturing process through our marketing automation platform we have seen a decrease in the total number of leads passed to the sales team but a higher number of leads that are getting accepted. This leads to an incredible increase in the percentage of close leads/leads passed. Have some real stats that I want to put in here but searching for the old deck.

      • 33. Salesforce is deployed across majority of company including:
      • 34. Sales, Support, Marketing, Operations, Data Services
    • Email History
      Started with email campaigns to people who signed up as a Jigsaw.com member pushing subscriptions.
      First Lead Gen campaigns were list downloads and one of promotional emails
      As our community grew we started realizing we needed action in the community just as much as we needed people to spend money which brought out two separate sophisticated email processes.
    • 35. Community Member Emails
      Defined two things:
      Our goal of emailing members from a community perspective
      How do we want them to see us
      Can we make current members, enterprise customers?
    • 36. Nurture Email
      The Marketing Automation choice
      Better understanding of customers
      Drip Campaigns
      Tracking
      Monitoring everything our prospects do.
      What is the effect of this?

      Shameless Image “Borrower”
    • 41. Vistage International and Salesforce.com

      • 350+ Salesforce.com licenses for staff and Chairs
      • 42. 1MM+ leads in Salesforce.com currently
      • 43. We’ve come a long way since we started using Salesforce and email marketing, but we have a LONG way to go.
    • Lead Sources – The big three
      List Vendors(National)
      Local Lists
      (Chair purchased)
      Chair Contacts for Group Builds
      Referrals fromexisting members
    • 44. Deduping Leads – Protect the company image
      Chairs share areas, so leads must be checked against campaigns
      De-duping happens against Salesforce.com and our existing member database
      PeopleImport – CRMFusion Inc.
    • 45. Segmenting Leads – The right lead for the job
      Varying Programs - CEO, Small Business, Key Executives

      Eloqua is used for campaign based emails
      Customize email content to form info
      Info replicated between Salesforce.com and Eloqua database (history and registration)
      Salesforce.com – Used for 1 to 1 and some automated communication
    • 47. Email Campaigns – Testing, Results, Improvement
      Over 9.8MM emails sent to 1.6MM+ contacts, 40K+ from submissions, 800K+ tracked web visitors in Eloqua = A LOT of testing….
    • 48. What we learned… the hits..
      A/B
      Subject Lines: Shorter is better, relevant to content and landing page (the industry standard)
      Content: Image heavy did not work for our demographic, these aren’t prod sales
      Links: Image based links clicked less than text links
      Visual Click Reports provide great insight
    • 49. Next Step In The Journey – Optimize Sales Funnel
      • Lead handoff between Marketing/Sales is well defined
      • 50. Identifying Missed Opportunities – analyze the lead pipeline and find ways back into the sales funnel
      • 51. Capitalize with new stage relevant campaigns
    • Vistage International

    • 53. What’s Working Now

      Innovative use
      Dayparting
      “Almost leads”
      Lifecycle marketing
    • 54. What’s Changed
      Email is more (not less) important
      Seamless channel integration
      Context is more important than permission
    • 55. What’s Next
      Automated yet personalized
      Seamless channel integration
      More transactional & action-oriented (think text & Twitter)
