Award-Winning Building Technology Company

Disrupting and Transforming the Traditional Construction Industry

The Challenge

As a growing building technology company, our client was seeking an experienced yet agile marketing partner to co-create their business development systems. The client’s team is filled with smart engineers and scientists yet a lean in-house marketing team. H+L was retained as an extension of their marketing department to achieve their ambitious aspirations in generating awareness and a steady flow of new business opportunities. Since the building industry is historically an unchanged sector, part of the challenge was to create awareness and educate the ideal customer segment on how this technology can be used to save costs, increase safety, speed up building timelines, and decrease the overall carbon footprint of their future projects.

What We Did

We worked with the Marketing Director and wider client leadership team to deliver on annual marketing goals through the creation and collaboration of quarterly milestones, key activations and ongoing improvements of the marketing program.

This CRM allows for personalization of the email marketing program and adds visibility into audience data, project stages, and engagement metrics.

  • Quarterly content plan
  • Blog brief and content production

The Transformation

We got to work quickly and within the first year of service created several high performing marketing programs that showed tremendous potential for our client.

Overall, our LinkedIn efforts were successful in generating leads while receiving valuable insights through conversations with our ideal prospects. Conversations were continued offline and informed the creation of additional content across the marketing program.

Advertising efforts in 2022 yielded a significant value in terms of volume and quality. These efforts also validated the overall business proposition and value by showing market demand for the business and products.

The significant growth of the CRM database during 2022 further validates the market interest and shows a demand for our client’s solutions. This informs the success of our full funnel efforts including website, advertising, and SEO.

In addition to lead generation, the quality of email response through email nurturing suggests extremely high engagement and an action-oriented audience that will continue to grow and form the foundation of future business opportunities and a source of revenue for our client.  

The results generated for our technology client is significant growth in all areas of their marketing program. As part of this growth, we’ve been made aware of several approved projects with million dollar valuations. Due to the increase in new leads and sales conversations, we’ve been asked to slow down lead generation activities to allow for business development and sales conversations to be prioritized. 

Additional client celebrations include:

+ 67
Monthly Sales Conversations Started
+ 125 %
Email Database Growth in 18 Months
