One Door is a leading visual merchandising platform that helps retailers streamline and optimize their store operations and space planning, ensuring consistent style across multiple locations.
The company successfully implemented a Person-Based Advertising approach to connect and engage with key personas at prominent retailers worldwide. By targeting the right buying groups within these accounts, One Door enhanced its marketing influence and drove pipeline growth.
While One Door was targeting large retail accounts, it discovered that reaching the specific buying groups critical to its success was a challenge. These groups typically comprised only 15-20 decision-makers amidst thousands of employees.
Traditional digital advertising campaigns generated a high volume of clicks, but failed to effectively engage the key decision-makers. As a result, One Door lacked visibility into whether its intended targets were actively engaging with their ads.
Moreover, the lengthy sales cycles necessitated maintaining brand presence throughout the prospect's journey. With traditional tools, it became difficult to justify large ad campaigns without confirmation that the right targets were engaged.
One Door decided to leverage Person-Based Advertising to effectively focus on and engage with the specific buying groups within target accounts. So they turned to Influ2.
The PBA approach allowed them to filter out irrelevant contacts and exclusively engage with key decision-makers, resulting in more meaningful interactions.
To optimize their campaigns, One Door developed tailored ad creatives and content for buying personas. This personalized approach ensured that each person within the buying group received an ad tailored to their defined role. Additionally, they experimented with lightly customized ads with the name of the retailer, resulting in an impressive 340% increase in click-through rates (CTR), reaching 1.10%.
This strategy enabled One Door to passively engage with key decision-makers continuously, ensuring their brand remained top-of-mind throughout the sales process.
This data-driven approach empowered One Door's sales team with valuable insights into interest and engagement levels among decision-makers at target accounts. The ability to identify and hand off contacts who engaged with ads to the sales team generated excitement and confidence in the quality of leads.
