CLIENT AND CATEGORY
Poor Quality Leads
Salt invested heavily into many parts of digital marketing such as paid ad campaigns, SEO and content amplification, but it drove more of the wrong applicants for the sales team at Salt.
Heavy dependency on job boards such as Indeed and poor paid campaign optimizations had led to irrelevant applicants just ‘looking’ for a job in the sales funnel. The labor-intensive qualifying processes of the sales team were being spent on poor quality leads and had minimal success, driving no ROI.
Couldn’t Measure What Worked AND WHAT Didn't
Marketing teams at Salt couldn’t measure which marketing channels worked and which didn’t. Without this, the marketing team wasn’t able to effectively allocate their marketing budget to the right marketing channels to maximize ROI; they were flying blind. This also meant they couldn’t deliver the highest quality leads to the sales team.
This ultimately led to bad allocation of the marketing budget and high volumes of poor-quality leads and an increase of the hours required from the sales team in the qualification process globally.
POORLY TARGETED MARKETING LED TO POOR ROI AND POOR QUALITY LEADS
Annual Traffic & Conversion Numbers
Salt gained large amounts of traffic from paid ad campaigns and other digital marketing solutions, but it led to more poor-quality leads to qualify rather than the higher revenue returns they expected. Out for 4 major markets, only the UK was generating limited amounts of conversions, whilst other regions generated no conversions due to the low conversion rate and low volume of traffic based on poorly-executed marketing strategies.
