Working with high-specialized products services means having low competition. However, the downside of it is the challenge of finding and attracting the right audience.
Standing on the threshold of the ICO stage, Black Insurance needed to secure a successful promotion campaign to proceed. Instead of starting with a blast of emails, the company chose to build the outbound routes via account-based marketing: a well-calculated and highly personalized approach to the right group and the right type of investors.
Since blockchain is still a relatively new word in the insurance industry, Black Insurance needed to locate and engage the investors with a 100% probability to take interest in their product. That required lots of exclusive, custom data that was unobtainable through purchasing a generic lead database.
You can imagine that scrapping this kind of data for a team of 10 people would take ages!
What we did
Our main task was to research, find, and deliver leads that match the unique qualifiers of the client. Within our work with Black Insure, we performed several types of research:
- Test leads research.
- Granular database research.
1) Test leads research
To evaluate Belkins’ services, the customer ordered a list of test leads first. Black Insurance’s qualifiers were the following:
- Investors for Private Presale Stage;
- Whales, Crypto Funds, VC funds;
- Average investment 2M - 45M;
- Global reach.
After reviewing the results, the client ordered granular database research.
2) Granular database research
Detail-oriented research is a complicated and time-consuming process when it’s not handled by an expert team. It requires skill with data research tools, awareness of the data fields to explore, and the ability to work with custom data qualifiers.
Within the full research, Black Insurance ICP was expanded with the following requirements:
- Companies the targeted investors invested in;
- Sorting and processing responses received from target recipients;
- Average investment volume;
- Links to the official press release publication.
Additionally, Black Insurance required a list of journalists specialized in writing about ICO-s and crypto. The custom qualifiers for this research were recent articles, topics, direct email address and phone.
To research and assess the leads across the data platforms, we used such tools as Hunter, Name2Email, RocketReach, and then processed the gathered lead data to ensure that our finalized list includes only the most relevant titles.
