Content Creation and Inbound Best Practices Generated 68 Form Submissions
For the “COVID-19 We’re All In This Together Campaign”, we started with content creation, generating effective landing page copy. We also designed and implemented a new landing page design to improve user experience and lead conversion.
Our content plan centered around industry keywords, as well as incorporating common hardships and emotional verbiage to capture what many employees may be facing during the COVID-19 crisis. The same verbiage and content was applied to email copy, calls-to-action, and social posts for generating traffic to the created landing page.
After implementing an email campaign and nurturing leads through a variety of marketing channels, we were able to generate 68 quality form submissions, as well as over 600 landing page views.
