drives 7x marketing ROI
Gorgias is a helpdesk designed for e-commerce stores. It enables stores to provide multi-channel customer service from a single app, unifying all conversations to deliver a truly customer-centric experience. As a company whose claim to startup fame is the technology fuelling its product, it comes as no surprise that Gorgias’ marketing efforts are entirely data-driven.
Gorgias maximises LinkedIn’s precise targeting capabilities through integrations with data activation platform Hightouch.io and revenue attribution platform Dreamdata. These all connect back to its own data warehouse, where it tracks over 20 different buying intent signals to target the right audience, at the right time, with the right message.
In 2021, Gorgias generated a pipeline worth 7x its marketing investment on LinkedIn by driving high quality conversions in the form of demos and trials.
Conversation Ads were its best-performing direct response format, peaking at close to 80% open rate and 60% Lead Gen Form submission rate.
“By combining our own data with LinkedIn’s via partner integrations, we’re able to monitor a range of buying intent signals and launch highly personalised campaigns to the right audiences at precisely the right time. Doing so enabled us to build a sales pipeline worth 7x our marketing spend in 2021. The power of digital marketing lies in data, which is why we’re always looking to hire marketers with strong technical skills.”
