THE CHALLENGE

One of Shell Catalysts & Technologies’ offerings includes providing gas treating solutions that can help companies extract value from gas reserves.

Due to legislative measures in Brazil, more players have entered the energy market. Shell Catalysts & Technologies provides unique solutions for these companies and removes roadblocks to success.

The challenge for Shell Catalysts & Technologies is to reach these specific energy companies operating in Brazil to make them aware of how their solutions can drive profitability and productivity.

Ironpaper proposed using ABM to reach stakeholders and build relationships while educating the prospects on pain points and opportunities related to gas reserves.

Our Goals

Ironpaper launched an account-based marketing campaign to demonstrate their value proposition to key companies operating in the country. Shell Catalysts & Technologies wanted to deepen relationships with key accounts and stakeholders in the region, and map additional account stakeholders to uncover new sales opportunities.

The Shell Catalysts & Technologies sales cycle spans two to four years, so while generating opportunities was the ultimate goal of the campaign, short-term successes included:

  • Scheduling discovery calls
  • Creating awareness among senior leadership involved in the decision-making process

Ironpaper's  ABM Campaign

Ironpaper’s ABM campaign workflow sought to target prospects and nurture them in the funnel. Each tactic aligned with the goal of positioning Shell Catalysts & Technologies’ gas treating solutions as powerful technologies for the treatment of South American gas.

The ABM campaign began with a robust research process to understand Shell Catalysts & Technologies buyers’ challenges and pain points. During this process, Ironpaper created a messaging map that paired the buyer’s market challenges with the client solution.

Customized Content

Through targeted LinkedIn ads, Ironpaper could get in front of key decision-makers at specific companies that could benefit from Shell Catalysts & Technologies' products. This granular approach was only successful as we worked withShell Catalysts & Technologies to ensure value propositions were clearly communicated with the target, using language and phrasing common in the industry.

A core part of a successful ABM campaign is creating personalized content at scale. Ironpaper’s email nurturing campaign segmented leads in order to create content that converted them through the sales funnel. We wrote 1:1 emails that addressed the prospect’s needs, depending on their place in the buyer’s journey.
