SimpliVity was new to the market and had plans to spend heavily on Marketing campaigns to drive traffic to their website. They needed to maximize the conversion rate on their site to capture as many early-stage leads as possible. There was also a large kick-off event planned for September of 2013 that would generate a lot of activity that they wanted to capture.
EchoQuote was added to the simplivity.com website as a “Self-Service Pricing” call-to-action. The product catalog was setup in about a day and the system went live in conjunction with their company launch. The Self-Service Pricing option was immediately effective and began driving 300+ high-quality visitors into the sales funnel per month.
