B2B Content Marketing Strategy for a Cybersecurity Company

Increased website traffic by 50%, grew social media following by 30%, and generated 300+ qualified leads within three months.

I developed a multifaceted strategy focusing on educational content, expert insights, and client case studies, planning multiple assets for each stage of the buyer's journey. The strategy was executed by crafting a content roadmap spanning curated whitepapers, guides, ebooks, case studies, and custom webinars and collaborating with industry experts and satisfied clients to deliver timely cybersecurity guidance.

Comprehensive Marketing Automation Strategy for a Cybersecurity Company

Achieved a 30% increase in qualified leads generated, reduced bounce rate by 10%, and increased open rates by 20%.

This campaign aimed to position the cybersecurity company as a go-to cybersecurity vendor by delivering value throughout the buying journey. My approach was based on creating an outlined strategic plan by implementing a marketing automation platform that was best within the company's budget and automating it with Salesforce and other marketing tools. I covered lead generation, lead nurture plan, and lead scoring model and engagement by integrating personalized automation sequences and workflows based on lead behavior.

Unlocking Success Through Targeted ABM Campaigns

Increased engagement from target accounts by 30% and reduced the sales cycle by 25%.

The campaign's objective was to engage and convert key accounts already visiting the company's website by delivering personalized messaging and content. I implemented a tiered approach based on the account value, tailoring messaging and content to address specific pain points based on content visited. I used Leadfeeder, a budgeting tool to identify which companies visited the website, and Lusha, a sales intelligence solution to identify up-to-date B2B contact and company data for the key group of decision-makers within the accounts.
