Increase in Leads Created
Information security software Pwnie Express didn't know whom to target with their marketing efforts and had no visibility into how their marketing was guiding leads through the funnel. A New VP of Marketing brought New Breed on board to solve those issues and align their marketing and sales efforts.

Pwnie Express provides full threat detection of every wireless and wired device in and around your workplace. We are the only company that detects rogue, misconfigured, and unauthorized devices across wired and wireless spectrums. By automating wireless and wired device detection, our solutions continuously detect the devices on or around your network that are open pathways for attackers.
A year before we started working with Pwnie Express, they welcomed a new VP of Marketing and with that a new generation of Pwnie's marketing and sales efforts. Coming onto the team, Dimitri Vlachos quickly identified a number of gaps within their current processes and was eager to find a HubSpot partner that could support both strategically and technically with building out marketing and sales automation that scaled alongside Pwnie's growth.
Pwnie Express found themselves in today's common software
Because of all of the above points, marketing wasn't generating the best leads they could and sales
We worked with Pwnie Express on a number of different projects and services beginning with our Growth Acceleration Workshop where we defined their primary buyer personas. Once we understood who we were attracting to the website and targeting for conversions, we needed to understand what it was about these leads that made them qualified for a sales conversation.
This is where our revenue operations project became key. Through an intensive four-week project, we worked closely and collaboratively with their marketing team to define criteria that indicated when a lead is a marketing qualified. Through this process, we looked to identify the different pieces of information we could translate into form fields and a funnel-driven form strategy. We completed detailed documentation for their marketing and sales team which defined:
After we defined and documented all of the above elements, the New Breed team moved forward to implement everything within HubSpot.
We leveraged HubSpot workflows to create internal automation that would set leads to MQLs based on our setup criteria, as well as assign them to the correct sales rep based on territory. This workflow also sets tasks for reps with due dates to ensure sales
We also leveraged the reporting add-on to build pipeline reports for snapshot views of how leads are progressing through the funnel. Once we had all corresponding assets created, we led a training session with the marketing and sales team to ensure everyone was on the same page and in agreement with all processes.
The configuration of their revenue operations via HubSpot tools has generated tremendous efficiency improvements and true visibility into their pipeline. And now, leads are actually progressing through the funnel as they should. Previously, they were jumping right from lead to customer. In the six months prior to working with New Breed, Pwnie's funnel had huge holes:
In the six months following our implementation of MQL criteria and all of the corresponding assets, we were able to bring Pwnie's funnel to life:
As you can see, we were able to not only obtain true funnel visibility but also a 1002% increase in leads created. Pwnie is now able to report back to executives and the board
With the implementation of the necessary automated processes, Pwnie was able to track visit-to-customer attribution that they wouldn't have been able to track without us, earning them a 300% return on their investment with New Breed.
“When I joined Pwnie Express, I needed a marketing partner to support our lead generation, nurturing and marketing operations activities. New Breed stood out not only because they are locally based, but also because they have extensive knowledge and expertise in the key components of our marketing and sales tech stack — HubSpot and Salesforce. They've been a huge asset to our team, from building a new sales-ready website to support us on all technical aspects of HubSpot and Salesforce. We are a fast-growing startup in a highly competitive market, and New Breed ensures our marketing and sales automation is a sales accelerant, not a source of sales friction. I truly view New Breed as a co-pilot in all things marketing operations.”
