Aiming to empathize with our target audience and scale our messaging with video, I wrote the Tale of Two Marketers script and worked with our creative team (videographer, designers, demand gen, and growth hacker) to lead this production and bring this story to life.

Concept:
At the end of this short video viewers are prompted to download the related case study. The evergreen campaign also includes a social component using the hashtag #MKTGstory.

Results: Featured as one of Pardot's 4 favourite B2B content marketing campaigns, in early (week of) release the Tale of Two Marketers had 2000+ unique views and viewers typically spent over four minutes on the landing page. The click-through rate to view the video was a strong 78%. 

The piece holds 73% of the audience right to the very end and the "completed view to lead" conversion rate was 33%.

Top marketing influencers shared the story, including Ann Handley and Lee Odden. This helped us amplify our reach:
