In 2015, GoodData, a business intelligence software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider based in San Francisco, came to PMG looking for an end-to-end strategy for an integrated campaign supporting their “Powered by” product for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). The goal of the program was to build a differentiated narrative around GoodData’s position as the leading provider of monetizable embedded analytics, driving awareness, engagement, and ultimately, sales.
PMG concepted and designed a unique 80’s “8’bit” style design centered around an interactive online gaming experience that challenged prospects to take their business to the “next level” with embedded analytics. The experience was hosted on a dedicated landing page, www.gooddata. com/dataland. Upon arriving at the page, visitors were enticed to pick one of five players representing GoodData’s target buyers (CEO, CFO, VP Product, Product Manager, Developer).
Choosing a player launched the gaming experience, which could be navigated by answering a series of “challenge questions” about how to monetize data. Each question included a call to action to fill out a form for a related eBook with more detail on the topic. Each player/persona was targeted with a different eBook, customized to their unique interests and needs. Throughout the game, there were 25 opportunities for players/prospects to fill out a form to download their custom eBook (5 per player).
In addition to the game, the DataLand microsite also featured copy promoting each eBook, which could be accessed by filling out a short form. PMG developed more than 100 pages of custom content for the five books, along with original graphics and illustrations. Also on the page was a PMG-produced video with more detail on the product.
Once the web page, gaming experience, and eBooks were complete—PMG turned its attention to creating a series of promotional materials spanning print, social, digital, email, and other channels, designed to drive traffic to the site.
These materials including social graphics for Twitter and LinkedIn digital banners ads placed at key locations on the GoodData site (including related blog posts), as well as external properties; three Marketo emails per eBook (15 total); and a tradeshow booth banner, gaming setup and t-shirt prize. PMG even developed LinkedIn background headers so that employees could promote the experience on their own profiles.
As a final step, PMG provided GoodData with a promotional strategy utilizing owned, earned and paid channels.
The integrated cross-channel campaign was the first of its kind for GoodData, and was so successful that nearly two years later, it remains active. The more than 30 integrated online form fills on the microsite drive more activity than any of GoodData’s other online assets combined, apart from their product demos. To date, the DataLand online experience has generated more than $8M in pipeline and $3.4M in annual recurring revenue.
