Project Story


As the client was approaching digital advertising for the first time and we had a clearly defined initial budget, we advised running an email marketing campaign before looking into channel-specific ads. Our B2B specialists were aware that with high-ticket B2B sales, delivering timely communication to someone’s inbox would be just as effective as spending thousands on LinkedIn ads. Essentially, each business in the sector would be competing for attention of their target prospects, so optimising all communications to align with great messaging was key.


In this case, Personal Presentation was well-informed as to who they wanted to target. They had already established prospect groups based on specific industry, company size and even job titles. Along with our own research, we were therefore able to build highly specific lists of prospects to target with our marketing emails, each of which were tailored depending on the target group.


Working in collaboration with the client, we finalised the content for each persona, crafting it around various USPs that mitigated their pain points. For the CEO group, we highlighted how the training from Personal Presentation had helped people in similar roles to transform their communication skills, whereas for the HR group, we stressed the benefits of the training for junior high-flyers and the merits of internal promotions vs external hiring.

The Brains has produced excellent results for us, way better than I could have imagined (I confess to being pretty sceptical to start with!). They’ve completely revitalised our new business campaign. My only hesitation in recommending them is that I’d be letting others in on the secret …

Overall, the campaign was hugely successful, generating a predictable volume of qualified leads per month for the client and resulting in a 5x return on marketing spend. Our collaborative approach meant that we could combine research strategies when it came to audience targeting, resulting in highly specific and lead-driving emails.
