Vertiv Mobile Sales Center - B2B Program

In this fun video, you will see first hand how we brought the Vertiv brand to life and built an experience whereby their B2B customers were able to engage with their products and their sales team.  This Experiential Marketing program delivered incremental sales to the Vertiv company by doing a 'reverse tradeshow'.  We packed everything up in two trucks and toured the US and visited their customers directly which yielded great

attendance (we went directly to the customer), interaction with decision makers and influencers (don't get all these people at a trade show), with no competition in site so your brand is the only game in town (trade shows have your competion 50 feet away from your booth).  And the ROI is you can double your pipeline and cut your sales cycle in half.  Try doing that with a trade show!!

Feedback summary: 

Pro Motion Experiential Marketing's efforts have been met with positive acclaim. The team is diligent, organized, and on top of the ball. Customers can expect an efficient events management team that comes at a reasonable price.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the President of KaBOOM! whose mission is to amplify the power of communities to build inspiring play spaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pro Motion Experiental Marketing?

Our funding partner had recently completed research relative to how families interact and they rediscovered how important play was positive family family interactions. Basis this research, they developed an idea to do a six-city Play Together tour where we would bring free, fun outside play experience to families in these six cities. We hired Pro Motion to bring this idea to reality.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Pro Motion joined our project team very early in the process. They provided input to the designs themselves, assembled the road team, sourced / produced all the tour equipment we would be using on the tour.  They managed all the logistics and onsite operation as we moved from city to city. They took care of staffing, sourcing ambassadors to support the event and managed teams of volunteers as well.

What is the team composition?

Promotion had two primary leads (who managed their team and the ambassadors), KaBOOM! had two leads, and our funder had two leads. 

How did you come to work with Pro Motion Experiental Marketing ?

Our funding partner provided us with a list of five partners they recommended. We then executed a full RFP process with Pro Motion being selected.

How much have you invested with them?    

We've invested $1 million with Pro Motion over several projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together November 2013 and wrapped up our first engagement in September 2014. Since then we have worked together on several other projects of various scales.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

This was the first time KaBOOM! had ever done anything like this at this scale. Pro Motion realized this and took the time to bring us along at our pace. The end result was that the first tour and subsequent events were huge successes and we got rave reviews. They did a really good job of understanding our mission and culture and bringing that to life.

How did Pro Motion Experiental Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They used a really interactive, disciplined process process that kept us all on track and focused on our objectives.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were professional along every step of the way and made sure their leads really understood what we were all about as a nonprofit. We liked them so much they became our partner for future campaigns.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they always worked to make the experience better and always had great recommendations.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you need to do a large or small event with an experiential component at a reasonable cost, they're the ones I'd recommend by far. As a non-profit, we appreciate that a lot.

Feedback summary: 

Pro Motion Experiential Marketing executed the event well and helped the company stand out at the events. Their team worked hard to quantify sales and success. The account management and scheduling were effectively managed through conference calls.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former local marketing associate manager of a farm supply retail company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing?

We were trying to find experiential activation to bring the brand to life. The activation needed to inform customers who we are, what we stand for, and the types of products they can expect to find in our retail and online stores.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Collaboratively, we worked on a year-to-year activation project that went to county and state fairs and community events. Top national brands for many products had interactive games that brought the brands to life at the events. For example, Pro Motion suggested a bean bag toss game. Working together, we expanded it to the bean bags resembling the pet food bags, and when tossed in the mouth of the animal, a sound specific to that animal was heard. They handled 100% of the execution. 

What is the team composition?

We worked with an account rep and an account coordinator. There was a travel team overseen by Pro Motion of about five people that were at the events, along with 2-4 local company ambassadors, depending on the size of the event.

How did you come to work with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing?

The company did an RFP and invited them to be part of the bidding process. I believe the director of my team may have gotten their info from another client.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $800,000 - $1,400,000; 50% company funded, and 50% vendor funded. Pro Motion Experiential Marketing suggested the split.

What is the status of this engagement?

They began the project in 2015, but I worked with them from May 2016 – January 2020. There were 6-8 weeks of event season per year, and prep for the upcoming season was done during off-season months. We finished the 2019 tour and prepped for the 2020 season before I left the company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

It was a new area for the company to dip into. Pro Motion executed everything well, making the company top of its class at the events. The company struggled with looking at key metrics of things that didn’t directly impact sales, so we challenged Pro Motion on how to measure the success of the tours.

They had formulas to measure impressions and worked with the events to secure branding in other areas within the event itself. This included banners, PA announcements, brochures, program flyers, etc. We used all of that to measure the success of the program, as well as feedback from the company team on-site at the events.

How did Pro Motion Experiential Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Account management was phenomenal. We had weekly conference calls to stay in touch, an update on how the tours and team were doing, and the reception of the footprint. They were also great at making sure we were able to understand the science behind what they said. Their team was able to represent the program internally from an impression standpoint.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The length of the tour speaks to how great of a partner Pro Motion has been for the company. Unlike other vendors, they did everything in their power to ensure our level of expertise in experiential marketing matched theirs. They went the extra step to make us be experts, as well. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Regarding scheduling, there didn’t seem to always be a firm layout of the event we were going to and what to expect.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to ask all your questions. There are no stupid questions. Lean on Pro Motion as the partner.

Feedback summary: 

The engagement with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing resulted in several successful campaigns. They were able to get national media exposure for their efforts and reach a variety of customers. The team worked seamlessly with the client’s employees. Communication was easy and efficient.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a media manager at ShurTech Brands. I was in charge of the marketing for Duck Brand duct tape products. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing?

We wanted assistance putting on various live events including festivals, pop up shops, and a bus tour across the country. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first project we worked with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing was our “Duck Tape Rolls Across America” bus tour.  They helped us prepare the bus in a short amount of time. Their team actually took it on tour for four consecutive summers. 

They’ve also provided support with our annual festival since 2013. They help run the sales tents and manage the in-house marketing team to help with all the activities. 

Additionally, Pro Motion Experiential Marketing organized a pop-up shop in New York City for Duck Brands. They helped us secure the space and transform it. The pop-up shop lasted 12 days and began with a fashion show for the opening. 

How did you come to work with Pro Motion Experiential Marketing​​​​​​​?

I found them online when we were looking for support with our bus tour campaign. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in early 2012. I left the company in March 2019, but as far as I know, they’ve continued the relationship. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

During the pop-up event in New York City, we had over 15,000 shoppers visit us, and we sold over 10,000 rolls of tape. That event also garnered a lot of media attention, including a feature on Good Morning America, which gave us exposure to approximately forty million viewers. 

Their team is small, but they know what they’re doing. They worked as if they were part of our organization. 

How did Pro Motion Experiential Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They were always very responsive to my inquiries, regardless of what time of day it was. We mostly communicated via email and over the phone. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their attention to detail is like none other. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

From my perspective, no. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Just be open and honest, and let them do their thing because they’re truly amazing at it.
