With a solid academic background and a sharp focus on the Fleet market, Esitu Solutions faced a challenge: they lacked essential commercial skills, having no prior experience in sales and marketing. As an early stage company, the team were struggling to build brand awareness, engage the market and generate sales. The traditional methods of prospect engagement and lead generation, despite their steep costs, were failing to deliver the systematic approach and quantity of leads needed to meet their sales targets.
Kickstart educated and upskilled Esitu Solution in the latest innovations and techniques in terms of sales and marketing. Enabling the team to utilise the power of marketing automation, providing systematic approaches to prospecting and message consistency. It also highlighted the necessity to enhance the company’s online brand including its website and how to leverage data for more informed decision-making.
By following the Kickstart framework, Esitu Solutions recognised the vital importance of an effective marketing strategy for start-ups. Discovering the power of consistent messaging, strategic planning, and content scheduling, they gained insights and techniques that significantly improved their lead generation efforts. The programme also played a vital role in educating and enhancing their skillset, equipping their team with confidence and the know-how to manage their sales and marketing function.
As a result of the programme's strategies and support, Esitu Solutions is a commercially robust spin out. With confidence, they're ready to launch their first major campaign, leveraging the power of automation to execute a systematic, high converting, lead generation strategy. The journey from traditional inconsistent outreach to strategic marketing has been profound for the business’s growth.
"I came to Grand Scale with part of me thinking that it would be just 'another marketing course', which I would not be able to implement. However, having been through the course, Ro and Leanne provide you with all the tools in a simple way to really kick start your marketing plan - following the course I was blown away with the content and how structured it was. We have been following the steps and guidance, and we are seeing a real benefit for our company."
