The Challenge

Create a Personalized Digital Experience for Targeted Buyer Segments
DocuSign® is the leader in eSignature transaction management. Like many B2B companies, DocuSign saw potential enterprise buyers visiting its site and bouncing before they accessed the most relevant content.

DocuSign needed the ability to attract the right audience and serve visitors the content that engages them in a meaningful way. It wanted to:

  • Drive more traffic from the accounts most likely to buy
  • Increase click-through rates to high-value, form-gated content
  • Boost conversion percentage of those reaching forms without sacrificing important information

The Solution

Attract the Right Accounts and Tailor their Experience through the Entire Engagement Cycle
To help execute its target account marketing programs, DocuSign implemented the Demandbase targeting and personalization platform. It was able to launch company-specific digital campaigns for six industries, attracting target accounts to the website, engaging them with relevant content, and converting them to sales prospects. The Demandbase solutions included:

  • Targeting the right accounts with first-touch display advertising. With the Demandbase Company-Targeted Advertising solution, DocuSign executed a display ad campaign to 450+ enterprise accounts, personalizing messages to companies in certain buying stages.
  • Serving personalized onsite content. DocuSign integrated the Demandbase Content Targeting module into its web platform to deliver industry-specific messages to six target industries with a dynamic, custom homepage experience that includes industry-specific images, testimonials, and peer logos.
  • Shortening the free-trial form, increasing conversions. With Demandbase Forms, DocuSign was able to capture detailed company info about visitors, while asking fewer questions on its web forms. Integrated into Eloqua, the Demandbase information helped sort accounts automatically into the appropriate trial.
  • Leveraging web analytics to gain detailed visibility and fine-tune content offerings. Using Demandbase for Google Analytics, DocuSign gained insight into the effectiveness and performance of its display advertising and website personalization—enabling the DocuSign team to fine-tune website messages and offers.
