“As a result, I’ve built KEO Marketing to be an extension of our client’s executive and marketing operations teams.”The company is a full-service outsourced marketing
department that offers the skill set of a large marketing department with seasoned subject matter specialists for the cost of a small marketing department staff.

According to Sirius decisions, for most business to business focused companies, more than 90% of leads are generated through digital channels including search, LinkedIn, programmatic advertising, and account-based marketing. Digital marketing is the most cost-efficient way to connect with prospective customers and it is also the most effective way to scale your communications. Google research shows that executives are bombarded with digital messages on their phones, computers, billboards, and other screens – they see more than 5000 marketing messages a day.
“To be successful in reaching these busy decision makers, it is critical to not just communicate through digital channels but to personalize those communications so that you are very clear in how you will deliver value and solve their challenges,” she states. “Digital marketing is the best way to deliver personalized messages at scale. And now, with COVID-19 forcing so many companies to communicate remotely, it is literally the only way to reach them.”

Case Study: Towards the Future
Nano Dimension (Nasdaq, TASE: NNDM)—a leading additive electronics provider of precision 3D printed electronics—based in Israel, set up operations in North America. The team was focused on a fast product launch for the Dragon Fly Pro 3D printer in North America and needed marketing penetration to best leverage their sales resources. Nano Dimension hired KEO Marketing to create, pilot and drive a targeted account based outbound marketing program to accelerate sales in North America. Leveraging lists of electrical engineering contacts from trade shows and sales reps, provided by Nano-Dimension, KEO Marketing’s account-based marketing program, including custom sales emails and LinkedIn outreach, resonated with prospects. From a list of just 3000 contacts, the ABM program generated more than 100 inquiries for a sales appointment in less than 2 months. The sales team was delighted with the quality of the leads and the project contributed to two strong quarters of revenue growth.
