“The best part is working with the Leader of the project (account manager) and the sales assistant assigned to us. They were very responsive, adaptable, and organized. Truly a pleasure working with them.” – Carmen Stinson, Corporate Travel Director
Forest Travel was having a hard time targeting certain companies based on their revenue, employee base, and travel expenditures. They were looking to give their outbound efforts a lift and selected CIENCE for their lead generation needs.
CIENCE conducted research based on Forest Travel’s ICP and orchestrated outbound marketing campaigns to qualify leads. “CIENCE generated the number of leads in the time agreed and worked closely with the Corporate Travel Director on changes and some fine-tuning needed,” says Stinson.
The partnership got off to a very successful start and continued to gain traction over time.
“After two weeks of start, we already had several calls booked. In 3 months (with one sales assistant), we had over 35 calls, which was much more than I ever did by myself,” Carmen Stinson says.
