Client’s Challenges

    Narrow TAM

  • 02 /

    Years of email outreach campaigns exhausted the lead capacity

  • 03 /

    Employees of certain universities hadn’t heard about the Codio platform before and had concerns about starting to use it

Main Request

Codio was looking for new effective ways to set appointments with target accounts and close more deals.

Offered Solution

Increasing brand awareness and lowering CAC using an account-based omnichannel approach.

ABM Strategy and Key Steps

01 / Analyzing current ICP and choosing a target segment

Instructors in Higher Education Codio’s product pertains only to programming-related courses. The titles therefore are relevant only to members of the Computer Science Departments or the Information Technology Departments.

Geo: United States, Canada, United Kingdom

02 / Determining key buying roles and preparing a contact list

Titles include Department Chair, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor.

03 / Targeted Ads campaigns

Before reaching leads via email, we set up a brand awareness targeting campaign on LinkedIn with visuals and messaging matching their customers' pain points.

Types of creatives: Single images, Carousel, Video Ads

04 / Targeted email outreach

We reached accounts from the previously prepared contact list using email sequences with 5-6 waves. Emails for each segment contained personalized messaging.

  • These campaigns helped us to warm up the target audience before they received their first emails.

  • All ads were forwarding the prospect to the landing page, which was designed according to core pain points and contained tailored value propositions.

05 / Retargeting campaigns

Some prospects visited our first landing page but didn’t engage with it. Using a GDN with a set of prepared key visuals and ad messages, we could retarget those prospects to another landing page, which was crafted to help them make a positive final decision.
