The Objective

Integra Telecom (now part of Zayo) came to PMG looking for creative ways of communicating the value of its fiber-based networking solutions through the lens of the customer. PMG crafted a unique narrative and integrated outbound campaign around the theme of big data and identified key benefits big data can deliver to enterprise organizations, as well as the technical challenges it creates. Then, we positioned Integra’s fiber networking products as an essential solution.

PMG produced four pieces of premium content for the campaign, including an online “Bandwidth Calculator” to determine how much bandwidth an organization might need to meet big data demands. In tandem, PMG developed a comprehensive distribution strategy spanning the Integra Telecom website and blog, social and digital advertising properties, and email and newsletter communications.

A dedicated “Big Data” resource page was created on Integra’s main website to host the assets, with a unique landing page for each asset. The buyer’s guide and Bandwidth Calculator rested behind integrated Eloqua forms to maximize lead generation opportunities, with data inputs on the calculator syncing to Salesforce to inform sales’ approach during follow-up activities.

Additionally, our team worked on a comprehensive inbound/outbound campaign and worked with Integra to segment their prospect and customer databases, curating outbound email marketing and newsletter mailing lists to support net new and upsell sales goals.

Online Bandwidth Calculator

Our team concepted and designed an online Bandwidth Calculator, incenting prospects to calculate their needs. We partnered with Integra SMEs to design a backend formula and customizable form fields to produce individual results. We worked with Integra’s Sales Operations to connect the form fields to Salesforce inputs and required emails to receive the custom report.

Multi-Touch Email Program

For the email component, we segmented Integra’s prospect and customer databases, curating outbound email marketing and newsletter mailing lists to support net new and upsell sales goals. Then we developed seven emails and four newsletter segments with associated triggers to accelerate movement down the funnel and, ultimately, drive conversion.

Digital Distribution Strategy

Integra then launched a comprehensive inbound/outbound campaign, driving traffic to the centralized location on Integra’s site. PMG crafted a series of blog posts for each asset that were promoted on paid, owned and earned media channels, including: Outbrain, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Our team closely monitored activity, adjusting spend and message while driving interaction, engagement, and inbound traffic for optimal results.
