Leads

We design interactive applications that will help you convert more visitors by proactively engaging them with a visual presentation of the financial returns they would realize using your solution – quickly showing them the potential cost savings, cost avoidance, revenue increases, ROI, TCO, payback, and more based on their business persona.

Then, to get qualified leads to volunteer their contact info, the application offers to send a personalized white paper that explains the business benefits in more detail so they can effectively cost justify the solution to their disparate stockholders.

The contact and profile info that is collected on these sales prospects is sent from the application to your CRM system, so your sales team can follow-up immediately.

misconceptions about roi calculators

With the business personas of sales prospects often varying widely, using “one size fits all” claims about the benefits offered by a product/service often ends up creating skepticism.

“Our calculator application has been a great lead capture tool.

Mitchell Sanders, Sr. VP Sales Operations, SPi Healthcare

To generate more qualified leads, Cogent ROI designs an interactive application to proactively engage each visitor to your Website or Landing Page with a visual presentation that calculates the financial returns their business would realize using your solution.

Then, to capture their contact info, the prospect is invited to opt-in to receive a personalized white paper report that provides more detail on the business benefits they’ll achieve, along with info to them help build consensus with other stakeholders and make developing the cost justification proposal much easier.

For immediate sales follow-up, the contact and profile info that is collected on these prospects is sent directly from the application into your CRM system.

ATTRACT

Engage
the
Prospect

We custom design an interactive application that quickly gets the attention of your Website and Landing Page visitors by having them participate in the experience of seeing how your product/service will financially impact their business operation.

The application would be setup as a stand-alone selection on your Website or as a direct Landing Page that the visitor would use on their own or with the guidance of your sales person – whether they’re on a PC, tablet or smartphone.

QUALIFY

Collect
Profile
Information

The visitor is asked a limited number of questions about their business – structure, processes, workflow, costs (CapEx/OpEx), etc. – relative to the financial benefits provided by your product/service.

Their responses are used to calculate their direct costs from lost productivity, inefficient processes, missed revenue opportunities, and/or wasted spending; and compare that to the benefits they would realize financially by using your product/service in their business operation.

CONVERT

Present
Financial
Impact

The financial impact results are instantly presented, giving the visitor an immediate view into what their business can reasonably expect to achieve using your product/service.

The results can be presented in terms of ROI, cost savings, increased revenue, cost avoidance, TCO, payback, break-even analysis, cash flow, and more – depending on what resonates best and gets the most attention from your targeted visitor audience.

NURTURE

Follow up with
Compelling
Content

After being shown the results, visitors are invited to receive a personalized white paper report, which is generated and emailed directly to them by the application.

This report uses their profile information to discuss their results in more detail, expand on the benefits they’ll achieve, and emphasize their costs in doing nothing. The tailored content helps to get their stakeholders in agreement faster by making the case for cost justification much easier.

CLOSE

Sell the
Bottom
Line

Visitors that opt-in for their personalized white paper report see the value of the financial impact your product/service can have on their business.

To effectively follow-up with these qualified leads, the application immediately passes their contact and profile information seamlessly into your CRM system – Salesforce, Marketo, Eloqua, Hubspot, SugarCRM, and others – flagging them as sales ready opportunities having an increased likelihood of turning into closed deals.
