Getting started with us is simple. Simply send us leads you’re trying to get in front of- prospects, customer, media contacts, partners and vendors, among other audience segments.
Once we receive these leads, our audience-discovery software analyzes your data to suggest thousands of additional targeted leads you haven’t yet discovered.
We use a data model we call ACES (Assess, Compile, Enrich, Score) to determine who you need to contact and in what order. To achieve this, we scour hundreds of millions of individuals and companies, then score each record using our own algorithm.
We also reverse-engineer the audiences of all your competitors, scoring the audience segments, prospective buyers, media outlets, journalists and influencers driving the most growth for each competitor.
From this data set, we build your own custom audience, complete with thousands of fresh, enriched leads, including name, title, email, social handles, affinities and full contact information.
We then deliver those leads into your Audience.co dashboard and you decide which ones you’d like to send notes to and how often. We even suggest note templates that work best with each audience segment.
The end result: you create meaningful interactions with your audience in a way that’s cheaper, faster and easier.
Armor-Piercing Outreach Machine
Once our software identifies and scores buyers and prospects, we activate our outreach machine, which focuses on an unexpected – but deadly effective – medium: personalized, trackable, handwritten notes.
These aren’t your typical notes. In fact, we’ve completely reinvented this medium, adding powerful technology and tracking to produce consistently beautiful written messages at vast scale- and with a jaw-dropping 80% open rate. The result: our outreach machine breaks right through to any decision maker, no matter the title, industry or company size.
And, yes, the notes are written by an actual pen, in real human handwriting and with precise pressure, slant and flow.
The power of the notes is our ability to create them at vast scale, with each note consistently beautiful, from the first letter to the last.
And unlike other forms of media, the notes add a personal touch. They show you care. The end result is they drive action and inbound activity, quickly.
Additionally, our technology allows you to quickly see which notes worked with which of your audience segments. Tweak different notes for different audiences. Then after you have it perfect and it works, put it on auto-pilot and don’t touch it again.
The third pillar of what we offer is Audience Academy, an immersive, one-day masterclass on digital marketing.
This immersive, live seminar is designed from the ground up and taught entirely by our Founder and CEO, Jesse Stein.
During this fun and interactive training, Jesse reveals all his best “Audience Hacks”, which are unique, powerful and easy-to-learn digital-marketing tools and strategies you can immediately implement to grow your business.
Jesse developed Audience Hacks during a twenty-year career starting and operating online retailers, digital-marketing agencies and direct-to-consumer brands. During this time, he founded and built thirteen online businesses, including four companies from scratch to eight figures each in annual revenue, all with no outside funding.
Whether you’re a digital-marketing novice or veteran, Audience Academy will expose you to dozens of brand-new strategies for driving traffic and acquiring customers. No matter your skill level, title, company size or industry, this training is designed to unlock and unleash your potential as a digital marketer.
If you’re a CEO, owner or marketing leader, you’ll get extreme clarity on how to build a disciplined, world-class digital-marketing team, as well as know how to hire and manage outsourced agencies.
