Brand optimization in the digital space
In the digital age, a company’s online strategy can separate the leaders from the followers. PBI is a well-known brand in the performance materials space, but its online presence and digital marketing efforts weren’t leveraging that brand as effectively as it could have been. ABZ developed and executed a plan that told the PBI story in a fresh and captivating way through various digital channels. The campaign’s goals were to increase brand awareness, generate more leads and convert prospects to lifelong customers. A complete website redesign, targeted B2B communication and traffic acquisition tactics were the key components of the plan.
Every aspect of PBI’s brand in the digital space was grounded in custom imagery, well-aligned layout, clear hierarchy and careful attention to typography and colors.
We shot custom photography to showcase PBI’s wide range of specialty offerings and many of the end products that use them.
We redesigned PBI’s website to deliver a completely new user experience. Enhancements included customized viewing experiences for desktop and tablet viewing, more intuitive site navigation, search engine optimization and content delivered seamlessly in multiple languages. We also created a custom microsite to generate a big splash in the market for one of PBI’s new and highly innovative fiber products.
PBI’s products must be able to perform superiorly even in the harshest of conditions. To bring this to life, we created a product animation outlining the key benefits for one of PBI’s products as it performs in extreme conditions.
PBI competes in highly technical markets where the process from lead generation to product application can be lengthy and complex. ABZ created a laser-focused lead generation campaign to capture prospective customers early in the buying cycle and educate them about PBI’s wide range of solutions.
Using advanced SEO methodology, we set out to improve PBI’s search engine results page rankings (SERP) and help draw organic traffic to the newly designed website.
We developed a comprehensive pay-per-click Adwords campaign targeting niche prospects in the aerospace, petrochemical and semiconductor markets. The campaign not only promoted PBI’s product solutions, but also educated prospective customers on its potential applications.
Trade shows are important venues for PBI to showcase its products to customer prospects. To help drive foot traffic to PBI’s booths at upcoming shows, we created a series of e-blasts to send to prospects leading up to the events. The e-blasts provided the PBI booth number, as well as featured some of its top products, their applications and key product benefits.
