Joe Culotta is the President of Inside Sales Staff. He spoke to us about the difficulties that his company faced.
“Our two main problems were growing our brand awareness and gaining new customers,” Joe said. “Our lead generation process was very inefficient and wasn’t producing the results we wanted.”
Joe went into more detail:
“We were buying lead lists but they were always inaccurate. Nine times out of ten, the contact details were out of date.”
“We also wanted to upgrade the way we ran our email marketing campaigns. We were stuck doing single-step email sequences and I wanted to change that.”
Inside Sales Staff found what they were looking for with Cognism’s all-in-one B2B prospecting solution. Joe continued:
“It was exactly what we needed - a B2B data provider and an email automation platform, in one package!”
“Onboarding was quick and easy. Cognism’s Customer Success team worked closely with us, helping us to source the data and build out intelligent, multi-step email campaigns. They have a lot of expertise and were more than willing to share their knowledge with us. It’s been a pleasure working with them.”
Joe listed the many benefits that Cognism delivered to Inside Sales Staff.
“First of all, the quality of Cognism’s data was astounding; far better than anything we had worked with before. Their hiring and funding triggers were particularly useful in helping us to find our target audience: VPs, CEOs and Heads working in recruitment and HR teams.”
“Then there was the email automation element. With Cognism, we were able to take the contact details of decision-makers and engage with them using multi-step email campaigns. We saw some immediate results in terms of low bounce rates and high response rates.”
Joe quoted some more statistics to us.
“Cognism was responsible for a 67% reduction in our prospecting time. Our lead velocity increased by 327% during the course of our campaigns. We signed multiple new clients, including our largest closed-won deal to date; that one deal was worth 6 figures! We wouldn’t have found those customers and signed those deals without Cognism.”
Joe had some final thoughts for others working in the B2B recruitment industry.
“Cognism is the best prospecting solution for recruitment agencies out there, period! It saved me time and grew my revenue, and is super to work with - what more could you want?”
