Content Marketing Automation
Cubic Designs Mezzanine Systems
On the heels of a website redesign, Cubic Designs, a leader in mezzanine systems, was elated with the new features we implemented for them, like their 3-D configurator. As their fully integrated digital consultant, we knew the new site was only the beginning of something bigger for Cubic.
Cubic was excited to see growth in traffic to their new site, but their analytics didn’t give insight into who these visitors were. With our recommendation, we would build a lead capture system to move them into the next phase: content marketing automation.
As part of our website redesign process for Cubic’s site, we created personas and user journeys. With those in place, we assigned gated marketing content to each journey. For example, if a visitor persona score designates them as a “window shopper,” the site would serve an article on “What to Look for in a Mezzanine System.” To download the content, the visitor would need to provide their contact information.
Leveraging Insights for Google Display Ads
Now that we had robust data on the types of personas who came to Cubic’s site, we used that information to optimize their Google Ad campaigns. Since targeting was more precise, we designed and built custom landing pages that considered audience’s interests and motivations.
The data we captured from gated content downloads and landing page CTAs provided Cubic with a groundswell of information to develop a marketing email campaign. We built personalized drip email campaigns with the goal to increase quote requests and requests to contact a representative.
We proved that robust data builds the foundation for a content marketing machine. Today, we continue to manage Cubic’s website and content marketing. They count on us for high-level strategy down to content creation and optimization.
