Acquiring new customers is on virtually every marketer’s list of objectives. But it’s expensive — typically 5x the cost of growing an existing customer. It’s frustrating — for example, prospect response rates continue to decline, and trade shows are becoming less fruitful for prospecting. And it’s time consuming — whether it’s creating new lead gen campaigns or in-bound marketing programs, the need for human and capital resources gets greater each year.

Yet there is hope for this vexing challenge.

FedEx needed a new way to generate interest in opening new accounts, having exhausted traditional one-off discount offers over the last 8 years. Enter Radiant 1 and a new approach to driving response/conversion by engaging prospects with a unique sign-up offer, and on-going contact strategy. ‘FedEx Fridays’ gave prospects new and exclusive offers every week, including offers from partnerships developed with Starbucks, FTD, Inc. magazine, and Living Social.

The ‘FedEx Fridays’ program became one of the biggest acquisition successes ever, with exceptional response and close rates. It generated 1000’s of new accounts, plus reactivated a record number of previously inactive accounts. In addition, over 200 FedEx partner alliances helped in the effort, generating well over 4m impressions, and with enrollments at a number of leading partners up over 500% YOY. Plus various FedEx shipping offers generated enough incremental shipments for the program to more than pay for itself during the promotional period. And for the first time ever, we successfully linked the customer acquisition and on-boarding strategies seamlessly to generate the desired on-going shipping behavior.
