The fast-growing Danish company Ocean is a well-known growth intelligence platform helping countless B2B companies to make the most sense of their CRM data. With their AI and vast company database, Ocean identifies and finds the lookalike companies of ideal customers driving sales efficiency and improve sales performances.

Challenge

With the growing demand for the product, Ocean’s marketing team was keen to fully leverage LinkedIn’s professional platform to raise even further brand awareness and drive high-quality sales leads.

The objectives for the campaign were set to:

Acquire new business leads from target markets

Drive Ocean’s platform demo signups and trials

Increrase product awareness in target markets

Solution

Ocean decided to run a B2B influencer marketing campaign on LinkedIn. With 10 strategically selected influencers, they saw an opportunity to connect with their product buyers in a more authentic and effective way. While being in full control of the promoted content and desired timeline, the campaign was launched without any effort.
