CASE STUDY: STRENGTHENING INBOUND MARKETING FOR AN INDUSTRY LEADER

Despite AT&T‘s brand strength, the company had challenges marketing its business services against power players such as Amazon Cloud and Amex Small Business. AT&T Business Services (ABS) partnered with Brown Bag Marketing to shorten the buyer lifecycle through the Networking Exchange program. Brown Bag designed an inbound marketing program that leverages corporate blogging, content marketing and employee engagement. We also created and trained the Networking Leaders Academy – an internal army of thought leaders who became experts in social selling.

The services we executed included:

  • Brand Development
  • Campaign Creation & Management
  • Content & Social Media Marketing
  • Digital Marketing
  • Marketing strategy
  • Sales enablement
  • Web & App Development

CASE STUDY: AN AWARD-WINNING SALES APP FOR A PAYMENTS INDUSTRY LEADER

To better position Elavon as a payments industry leader with a keen understanding of multiple industries, we developed a dynamic sales app that provided useful content and data points for Elavon representatives to share with prospective customers. This sales tool allowed the reps to walk customers through custom product presentations, organized by industry topics and tailored to their specific needs and pain points. We were a 2017 AMY Awards Finalist for this app.

We skillfully delivered the following services:

  • Brand Development
  • Digital Marketing
  • Web & App Development

WHY TECHNOLOGY SERVICES COMPANIES CHOOSE BROWN BAG MARKETING

At Brown Bag Marketing, we first take the time to get to know your business’s unique needs, goals and budget. This approach is one of the reasons why we’re one of Atlanta’s top digital marketing agencies for IT and software companies.

Here are some other reasons why tech providers near and far choose us for end-to-end digital marketing advice, services and solutions:

We’re cost-effective.

Cost shouldn’t be your only priority when it comes to hiring the best digital marketing agency, but it might be an important factor on a strained budget. At Brown Bag, rest assured that you’ll get the highest return on your investment (ROI). We strive to deliver results that go above and beyond what our clients pay for.

We’re driven.

As a boutique digital marketing agency, we’re more dedicated and passionate about achieving success for each and every one of our clients by putting all we’ve got into their success. We won’t stop until we’ve delivered high-quality work that we’re proud of and you’re ecstatic about.

We care.

We are deeply invested and committed to each of our clients. Unlike large marketing agencies that juggle many different projects poorly, we focus our full attention on just a handful of businesses and organizations with which we believe in and build long-term relationships. At Brown Bag Marketing, you’re not just another number or account. Your personal success matters to us!

We’re creative.

The corporate grind is great for making executives rich, but this system tends to squash employee diversity, creativity and idea generation. At Brown Bag, we give everyone a voice and encourage creativity at all levels. We excel at coming up with inventive and outside-of-the-box solutions to the biggest challenges.

We’re accessible.

No matter the project, there’s always going to be issues and concerns that will pop up that must be addressed quickly. In these instances, it’s important to have a partner you can easily communicate with to discuss potential solutions. You’ll never have a problem getting a hold of us — we’re right by your side from start to finish!

We’re enthusiastic.

Investing in digital marketing for your organization is a big decision on a tight budget and it’s important to partner with an expert whose eagerness to get down to business matches yours. We guarantee that we’ll match your enthusiasm…and then some. We’re passionate to work with you!

We’re flexible.

Corporate marketing firms often have rigid structures and systems that make them unable (or unwilling) to adapt to their client’s individual needs. As a boutique agency, agility and adaptability are qualities that come second nature for us! We customize every marketing strategy for each client because we don’t believe in cookie-cutter approaches or taking shortcuts.

We’re experts.

Our diverse team is widely skilled and trained in a broad range of internet marketing tactics, strategies and methods. This expertise allows us to target niche audiences and topics that larger agencies simply don’t have experience in.
