Finding face-to-face alternatives with Informa Connect

When events – their main source of lead generation – became impossible in a pandemic, Informa Connect got creative fast.

How they turned it around

Embedded lead capture forms in their digital magazines and integrated with their form provider

Why it worked

They delivered content in a new format. They were also quick. Quick to market and quick to turn around the content, using Turtl’s editing software. The gated content also got more sign-ups than a  standard lead capture form.

Inbound lead gen content led to a 62% increase for IR Magazine

IR Magazine’s lead generation campaigns weren’t taking off. So they said CYA to PDFs.

How they turned it around

Moved to a digital magazine format and increased their content to cover:

Quarterly magazine
Research reports
Event follow-ups
Sales materials
Product guides
Media packs

Embedded lead capture forms in their digital magazines and integrated with their form provider

Why it worked

The magazine used to embed magazine issues as PDFs on its website using a specific PDF viewer. Integrating lead capture forms was fiddly at best. Converting to a digital magazine format kept their new content sparkly and their lead capture forms in one place. And it increased their submissions.

Impressive stats

  • Average read time increased to 5m 36s
  • 62% increase in submissions. Boom

1 in 3 conversions with Kantar Media

After 8 years, the lead generation from Kantar’s Brand Footprint report had stalled. It needed a glow-up.

How they turned it around

Moved from PDF to digital

Gated chapters so readers could get a sneak peek of the content – and sign up for full access.

Why it worked

With the content chunked up into chapters instead of one long PDF, readers could scan through the report and choose the areas that interested them. Data gave Kantar full sight of which content was popular and what they could tweak or improve. Serving a sneak peek of chapters proved to be the winning strategy to increase sign-ups – their content was too enticing.

Impressive stats

  • 1 in 3 readers signed up
  • 440 engagements with interactive features

Direct ROI from social for Mind

Mind struggled to get businesses to take part in their Workplace Wellbeing Index. They needed sign-ups. And to get sign-ups, they had to cut through a hefty amount of Twitter and LinkedIn noise.

How they turned it around

Created a digital resource asking people to sign up as potential participants
Optimized the content for sharing over social
Added sign-up forms mid-document
Added subscribers to their direct mailing (DM) list

Why it worked

This lead generation campaign had a solid follow-up. From signing up to the DM list, Mind had the data it needed to promote its Workplace Wellbeing Index. The mid-document sign-up form worked perfectly. Their data told them interest was highest in the middle of the document – so it was strategically positioned to drive the most leads.

Impressive stats

  • Their Mentally Healthy Workplace resource generated 147 new subscribers
