Automated Lead Generation for Merit Software

The Task: Our team was tasked with assisting Merit Software, a prominent accounting software provider, in automating their marketing efforts and enhancing lead generation.

The Challenge: Despite being a prominent name in the accounting software industry, Merit Software aimed to establish a stronger foothold among a new and burgeoning audience of small business owners.

The Solution: Our strategy involved developing an automated sales funnel tailored to the desired audience. We introduced an enticing free lead magnet to captivate the target group’s interest, subsequently guiding them through a customer journey. Our comprehensive approach included crafting a compelling landing page, designing the lead magnet, creating engaging email content, producing an informative video animation, conceptualizing ad creatives, and formulating a strategic paid media plan.

The Results: The impact of our partnership was swiftly apparent. We successfully gathered 200+ contacts from the target demographic, achieving a noteworthy 20% conversion rate from lead to client. The project remains ongoing, continuously expanding Merit Software’s email database and effectively nurturing leads into devoted, paying customers.
