Circle S Studio Drives Demand & Growth With Act-On for Agencies

Counts on Marketing Automation to Enhance Client Success and Support Strategic Direction

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Act-On Software, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated marketing automation software, today announced that circle S studio, a digital marketing and design firm, has adopted Act-On for Agencies to enhance its own lead generation and content marketing programs as well as that of its clients. With Act-On, circle S studio has been able to strengthen its online marketing skills and services, helping to advance the agency's overall strategic direction.

Act-On for Agencies provides circle S studio with the flexibility to manage multiple client accounts, provision resources, and share assets across accounts using a single dashboard. The platform has also allowed the agency to control marketing automation on behalf of its clients.

"With Act-On, we don't have to ask our clients to go out and purchase marketing automation software on their own," remarks Tim Asimos, VP & Director of Digital Innovation at circle S studio. "Our clients don't speak the language of tech, and marketing automation is a term that doesn't mean anything to most of them."

Since rolling out the Act-On platform a year ago, circle S studio has seen tremendous results. "The seeds we planted are beginning to sprout. We're seeing a lot more leads, a lot more opportunities and wins coming in the door," said Tim. The agency credits its 400 percent increase in web traffic and improved efforts in content marketing to Act-On, and has used Act-On for Agencies to disseminate emails, create landing pages and forms, distribute eBooks, and track website visitors.

On behalf of one such client, a financial firm, circle S studio uses Act-On forms to see how their customers interact and engage with specific content; in doing this, the firm can easily tailor its outreach to actions taken and services requested -- accomplishing in a few keystrokes what might otherwise have required months of due diligence.

Act-On's comprehensive functionality enables circle S studio to graduate its clients from an elementary level of email marketing to an integrated approach to marketing that includes lead scoring, lead nurturing, social publishing, and campaign analysis.

Act-On has successfully helped circle S studio to bring clarity to chaos when it comes to multi-channel marketing and reporting, and has enabled the agency's clients to prioritize efficiency and effectiveness.

Concludes Tim, "Act-On has the power of the big boys, but it's easy to get started and it's a minimal financial investment. You get the support that lets you hit the ground running."
