Challenge:

Despite attracting significant website traffic, CyberSecure Inc. faced two main challenges:

The company recognized the need for a sophisticated tool to identify potential leads and enable personalized outreach based on reliable data.

Solution: Implementing SimplyIntel with LinkedIn

Background

A mid-sized B2B tech company specializing in cybersecurity solutions, CyberSecure Inc., is looking to improve its lead generation and sales processes. Despite attracting significant website traffic, the company struggles with converting anonymous visitors into qualified leads and efficiently targeting them with personalized sales pitches.

 

Step 1: Setting Up SimplyIntel with LinkedIn Integration

CyberSecure Inc. integrates SimplyIntel on their website, enabling the identification of website visitors’ LinkedIn profiles and company pages without using cookies. The goal is to collect enriched data such as company name, job title, industry, and LinkedIn profiles to facilitate targeted outreach.

 

Step 2: Configuring SmartFilters Based on LinkedIn Criteria

The marketing team configures SmartFilters to focus on their ideal customer profile (ICP), targeting:

  • Industries: Finance, Healthcare, and Technology.
  • Job Titles: CISO, Security Analyst, IT Manager.
  • Location: North America and Europe.

By applying these filters, CyberSecure Inc. ensures they only spend resources on leads that closely match their ICP.

 

Step 3: Utilizing DISC Personality Assessments for Personalized Communication

Upon visitor identification, SimplyIntel automatically conducts DISC personality assessments using LinkedIn profiles. For example:

  • A CISO with a ‘Dominance’ profile prefers straightforward and results-oriented communication.
  • An IT Manager with an ‘Influence’ profile responds better to enthusiastic and collaborative messaging.

CyberSecure Inc. trains its sales team to use these insights for crafting personalized emails and LinkedIn messages, significantly improving response rates.

 

Step 4: Leveraging AutoSend Features for Efficient Outreach

With AutoSend Emails and LinkedIn, CyberSecure Inc. automates personalized outreach:

  • Emails: Tailored pitches highlighting cybersecurity challenges relevant to the lead’s industry and role.

LinkedIn: Connection requests and messages referencing specific details from the lead’s LinkedIn profile and mutual interests.
