When we first engaged with ClearSolv in 2019, they were a startup solvent distributor with an unfinished SquareSpace website and no means to collect online leads. ClearSolv had its sights set on attracting clients in the cosmetics, cannabis, and botanical extraction industries. They needed a marketing partner who understood their needs and could communicate their message to customers effectively.
In order to position this chemical company for success, there were several challenges that BlackBean had to address:
- ClearSolv's client base was limited and they had no online marketing funnel to generate leads
- Their brand was incomplete. They required a new logo and a variety of branded materials including business cards and trade show materials
- Their sales team needed a lead generation website with targeted content that spoke to purchasing departments at extraction, cosmetics, and manufacturing businesses
- ClearSolv needed a strategy to generate website leads at a reasonable cost per acquisition.
The team needed a marketing partner who understood their needs and could communicate their message to customers effectively.
Our first steps were to research the solvent and chemical supply industry, identifying competitors and learning industry terminology. We then applied our research to the branding process, producing a brand identity that spoke to their audience.
BlackBean developed a new digital platform with an online store to allow ClearSolv’s North American prospective clients to obtain quotes and receive all the necessary regulatory information. We also crafted a very responsive marketing strategy that allowed ClearSolv to navigate the COVID-19 crisis seamlessly and with great success.
While many businesses struggled through the early days of the COVID-19 crisis, ClearSolv thrived. Taking advantage of increased demand for solvents such as isopropyl and denatured ethyl alcohol, we proactively scaled up our advertising, focusing our campaigns on medical manufacturers and hand sanitizer production. Scaling the advertising campaign aggressively and early allowed ClearSolv to dominate paid search results through the height of the COVID-19 crisis, resulting in explosive growth.
Since March 15, 2020, the advertising campaign has generated an average of 6.5 leads per day from businesses across Canada and the US. As for the website, it generated nearly 700 combined phone calls and form submissions from January to May 31, 2020, at an average cost per lead below $20 CAD.
