F5 contacted us as they were trying to increase the size of their opt-in database for their sales team to use for lead generation. As the first step in their relatively long sales cycle, opt-in database growth is critical for their sales team to nurture leads and keep their pipeline moving.

With LinkedIn as the prime channel for reaching their target audience of key decision makers in organisations that require application services, The Social Effect was the obvious choice to help F5 reach and convert leads.

The strategy for this campaign was to generate opt-ins via a survey that determines what solution is best suited to leads’ application requirements. In order to increase response rate, we gave each respondent an entry into a draw to receive a pair of high-end Bose headphones.
