The first appointment with Inbound Marketing

During March 2015 we had our first meeting with Elisa Giachelle and Melissa Win2Wine-ElisaGiachettle-Melissa-Cogo.jpgCogo. In that occasion, we had the opportunity to learn the new portal project goals and the 2015 event targets. The main goal to gain was to raise the number of participants to the event together with the need of building a Web portal that could improve the users experience.

Some of the operations needed to complete the new project were the integration of the portal with systems of online event’s tickets booking and the arrangement of tools to help the users in order to organize their presence into different workshops.

We suggested the implementation of an Inbound Marketing project by using the HubSpot software platform. In the first step of the project, we have built together with GRS a strategic plan where we pointed out the targets for visitors, contacts, customers numbers. We carefully determined the buyer personas’ profiles, the significant keywords for their business, the competitors, the site framework and the strategy of the contents to achieve.


Portal development with HubSpot CMS

We used the HubSpot COS technology to create all the pages of portal. We integrated the pages with Eventbrite and with another app ( that allows the user to organize his planner during the workshop.

We started the HubSpot Blog to advertise relevant contents for the buyer personas. We created the landing pages to generate conversions (average CTR 24%). We planned the mail marketing campaign and we used the Social procedures for the contents spread.
