Creating a top-of-funnel sales pipeline

Valtech wanted to generate revenue for their digital agency services in the U.S. While they have a strong European brand presence, Valtech is still growing brand awareness in North America and they relied on relationships and referrals to fill the sales pipeline. After a few internal attempts to fill the top of the funnel, Valtech recognized the need to bring in an experienced demand generation team.

Generate demand for Valtech’s digital agency services in an immature North American market as well as build a sales and marketing engine to establish a top-of-funnel sales pipeline


We created a multistep and multichannel approach. Our first step was developing two onboarding workshops focused on understanding Valtech’s external market factors—including customers, brand, solutions and competitors—as well as their internal structure, processes, technology, operations and content.

The workshops’ findings were then used to build a customized top-of-funnel revenue generation process. Target markets and accounts were identified based on Valtech’s capabilities, testimonials and experience, and target personas were researched within those organizations.

“Symbiont Group quickly adopted Valtech’s DNA. They learned, absorbed and expressed Valtech’s brand identity without extensive resource investment in bringing them up to speed. We didn’t need to hold their hand during the onboarding process, and that was extremely beneficial.”

– Rebekah Lundberg, V.P. of Marketing, North America

We recognized during the discovery phase that Valtech’s message wasn’t resonating with a North American audience, so a new top-of-funnel message was created and a targeted content plan was executed to distribute it using marketing assets like emails, blogs, white papers and case studies. We also defined a clear lead handoff process to ensure consistent follow-up.

We then established and executed a regimented outbound sales campaign focused on target prospects to create interest in Valtech’s services and encourage appointment setting with a Valtech sales leader. In all, more than 10,000 emails were sent and 2,000 calls were made as part of a three-month campaign outreach effort that resulted in a $2M SQL pipeline.

“Valtech produces a lot of content, so the last thing I would have considered a gap was our messaging. But Symbiont Group shed light on the fact that there were areas our marketing messaging wasn’t reaching. That was a surprise.”

– Rebekah Lundberg, V.P. of Marketing, North America

To complement the outbound campaign initiatives, we used email to generate multiple in-person meetings at industry conferences (including NRF) and to set additional meetings with leads sourced from those conferences.

We also developed branded lead nurturing content across three market segments—industrial, retail/CPG and innovation—to increase prospect engagement.

We filled the gaps and connected the dots between Valtech’s sales and marketing strategy, people, processes and technology to establish a sustainable sales pipeline focused on revenue conversion.
