Palm Harbor, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/13/2007 -- Winn Technology Group, a leading marketer of business-to-business technology products and services, recently completed a demand generation program on behalf of Bowden Systems that delivered a return on investment (ROI) of 9.7 times the cost of the campaign.
Bowden Systems is a Norcross, Georgia based independent software vendor (ISV) and member of a partner program for a Fortune 50 ranked technology manufacturer. Bowden recently contracted Winn Technology Group for database development and demand generation services as part a key marketing initiative designed to increase sales for a specific line of servers and related products.
The focus of this campaign was Bowden’s NSK-NTP product, a comprehensive network time synchronization solution that increases operational efficiency for Fortune 500 corporations. The effort by Winn involved numerous components including a series of three co-branded direct mail pieces, database development, and follow-up calling.
Once the aforementioned components were in place, the campaign kicked off with a series of three direct mail drops, each followed by a round of outbound lead generation.
In total, the campaign generated 39 highly qualified leads, or one for every 2.7 hours of calling – well below the industry average for outbound lead generation. More importantly, a recent conversation with Bowden Systems’ CEO Ron Bowden revealed that almost 10 of the leads have closed for approximately $80,000 in new business, yielding an ROI of 9.7 times the cost of the campaign. This is a staggering return considering a great number of successful lead generation campaigns result in 3-5x ROI.
Further, Ron indicated that Bowden Systems has another $100,000 in its sales pipeline as a direct result of the campaign, amplifying the program’s potential ROI to 21.8 – almost unheard of in the outsourced lead generation industry.
When asked what he learned from the program, Mr. Bowden stated, “Lead generation is a pretty timely process, and you need to have a clear value proposition for what you are selling.” Above and beyond the obvious financial benefits, Ron also said the campaign helped Bowden Systems gain a lot of market visibility and refine its collateral, presentations, and value proposition.
In closing, Ron proclaimed, “Lead generation is something you can’t do without…there are a lot of things that need to be done before starting, as well as significant effort and oversight, but it’s well worth it.”
