Toronto, ON – Today Boulder Logic, the leading provider of customer reference management solutions, and Influitive, the advocate marketing experts, announced the integration of their cloud-based marketing platforms. The integration helps B2B marketers to mobilize their advocates and engage them as customer references to close more enterprise sales deals faster.
One of the first organizations to use the integration was Blackbaud Inc., a leading provider of nonprofit software and services and a recent winner of the 2015 Best Advocate Marketing Awards. Blackbaud Inc. is using the integrated solution to provide a more seamless experience for their customers and enable their marketing team to spend valuable time building meaningful customer relationships.
“This integration combines the robust customer reference system we need in Boulder Logic to provide sales with the right reference at the right time, and a powerful advocate marketing platform in Influitive to mobilize and develop customer advocates,” explained Michael Beahm, Customer Advocate Marketing Manager for Blackbaud Inc. “It is a big win for our customer marketing team and our customer advocates.”
Boulder Logic and Influitive combine the best practices of advocate marketing and customer reference management, allowing B2B marketers to:
- Build a community of advocates and engage them in a broad range of marketing activities, including reviews, referrals and video testimonials.
- Create and manage a customer marketing library that pushes relevant content directly to sales professionals based on their selling situation.
- Promote selected customers to become full enterprise customer references while protecting these important relationships from overuse.
- Create a more positive customer experience using rewards and leaderboards that increase customer participation.
