Decreasing the cost of acquisition for solar panels by preventing unnecessary calculations and sending the right leads to sales
Read about how innovation cycles drive continious business value.
Sungevity was already seeing success with their basic lead scoring and nurturing programs in Marketo Engage, but they wanted to tailor their approach to be more consumer-centric and see better lead quality so they re-evaluated and improved their programs accordingly.
Background & Challenges
Sungevity initially implemented Marketo Engage in 2019, with the basics for marketing automation. A solid foundation for inbound marketing was set up through the implementation of lead scoring, lead nurturing, process integrations, and the development of tailored content programs. Their lead scoring model was set up to assign points to leads based on their behavior and characteristics which the organization believed would lead to purchasing solar panels. The results of this new approach were positive, resulting in an overall successful project with a basic Marketo Engage implementation.
Even though the foundation was laid successfully, Sungevity wanted to further optimize, improve and thus set even more challenging goals for 2021. One of these goals included increasing their lead conversion rate through an assessment of what processes, scoring and content were currently in place, and adjusting according to the data that they had obtained in the last two years. Ultimately, their main challenge and goal was to improve their inbound marketing and transform it from a cost center to a revenue center.
