Chief Marketing Officer

INXPO offers an excellent SaaS online communications platform used for events, webcasting and Social Business TV. When I joined, the company had great technology, but needed a brand revitalization, a fresh look at its UI/UX and new awareness and lead generation programs.

I sharpened the product marketing by creating solution-specific product suites targeted at specific use cases. I created a new corporate web site with optimized content and integration with marketing automation tools I implemented. And I created dozens of content marketing programs complete with targeting, database set up, strategy, copy/design, lead flow nurturing programs and measurement parameters.

• Built the demand generation program using marketing automation software tools
• Created all content for the demand generation campaigns (videos, webinars, white papers, position papers, landing pages, etc.)
• Managed all lead gen campaigns, targeting 12 different personas across 8 verticals
• Increased the sales pipeline significantly in a very short period
• Shortened the sales cycle during the same period
• Launched new products on time, on budget and on target – worked closely with the CTO and the development team from scope to wireframes to usability testing to launch of the SaaS product
• Managed all SEO and SEM – generated more qualified leads from the corporate website and dramatically improved organic search results
