Introducing Simpli.fi, one of the largest tech leaders in helping companies become more extreme about targeting when advertising.
This month we launched a recruiting campaign for Heitkamp Construction based out of Wahpeton, ND.
For this campaign, we used geofencing and audience curation. Using geofencing we are targeting their competitors(other construction companies) within a 90-mile radius. Audience curation on the other hand is about creating a custom audience. In this case, we are targeting people within 90 miles that fall under twelve different job titles that are specific to the construction and labor industries.
Their targeted campaign is designed to attract new employees ranging from foremen, laborers, concrete workers, and steel erectors. It’s a wide variety of roles as they are getting a lot of jobs and need more bodies to keep up with the high demand for their services.
In order to create a better user experience for anyone who clicks on the ads, we designed a custom landing page and linked it to their website by helping them create a sub-domain. The landing page highlights everything that Heitkamp Construction does for work, the history of the organization, and the benefits you receive from being a member of their team. It focuses on their main benefit of being able to work within 90 miles of home to ensure that their team is home with their families every night – not normal in their industry according to the owner, Gary Page, of Heitkamp Construction.

We took out a loan and took a big risk on hiring a great team to provide marketing solutions from web design, digital marketing, videography, design, branding, strategy and more. To receive an honor like this couldn’t make me more proud of everyone who helped us get this including our clients, team and our community.” Said Mike Dragosavich, Founder at Spotlight.

Meet Our Newest Designer:
Where are you from?
Tell us a little bit about you.
I studied graphic design at MSUM where I found a love for the creative and visual side of marketing.
If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
Simon Pegg. I feel confident that he can accurately portray my distaste for Jar Jar Binks from the Star Wars franchise. I’m still upset about Jar Jar.
What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
If I’m not glued to a screen rewatching Frasier for the 12th time, you can catch me tearing up the streets on my bicycle.
What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
When the weather is cooperating, I drive a big old mustard yellow boat of a car named Loretta.
What part of your position provides the most value?
Visual insight on the design side of our client work.
Tell us about your experience.
I started interning with a local agency while finishing up some college courses. After receiving my degree I was hired full-time and learned a lot about juggling unique client needs in a fast-paced setting. I started receiving more and more motion graphic projects which propelled my love for animating designs.
What part of your job do you believe makes the most impact?
Getting to collaborate with the interactive team and coming up with creative ideas for clients.
Why does our community matter to you?
Being a born & raised Fargo boy, I’ve watched it grow and thrive. The passion people have for this city is something special to be a part of.
What are some of your goals at Spotlight?
You may have heard about inbound marketing before – but what does it mean? Inbound marketing takes a more human approach to growing businesses by attracting, engaging and delighting both current and potential customers. These marketing campaigns achieve a higher ROI than outbound techniques regardless of company size, geography or budget. Why? It’s simple. Inbound marketing revolves around meaningful content that generates attention and can be shared easily. Reaching B2B customers online has never been easier as 68 percent of them prefer to research online. Eighty-seven percent of buyers give more credit to content shared by an industry leader and the most successful B2B marketers spend 40 percent of their total budget on inbound marketing.
In order to do inbound marketing the right way for B2B customers, we at Spotlight decided to become a partner with the best inbound marketing platform in the world – HubSpot. Let’s talk about what we can do with this platform and learn about some of the highly sophisticated features we’ll be using for our clients.
Get Content in Front of the Right People
HubSpot allows us to publish blogs directly to our clients’ websites while getting real-time SEO suggestions. We can also post social messages at optimal times so we can reach the right people at the right time. The platform also measures past behaviors so we’re able to serve relevant headlines, CTAs and more.
Drive Traffic to Unique Landing Pages
This platform lets us design our own CTAs using personal messaging based on traffic source, location, personas and more. The best part? No coding is required (phew!).
Convert Visitors Into Qualified Leads & Turn Them Into Customers
We’re not all developers, which is why the fact that we can launch professional-looking landing pages in seconds without having to rely on a web developer is so great! We can even attach forms in a single click, run A/B tests to increase conversions and engage with visitors in real-time using live chat.
Track Customers & Report Bottom Line Impact
This is probably my favorite feature. HubSpot has robust email tools and drip campaigns that give each lead a personalized path to purchase. With these tools, we have the ability to give them everything they need to become paying customers, and every interaction with our content automatically triggers the perfect next step. At the same time, the platform automatically records and organizes every interaction customers have with the clients’ brand. This allows us to confidently show our clients how their inbound marketing campaign has contributed to their sales.
Ready to Start Getting Leads?
If you’re ready to start getting leads and proving your own ROI, let the experts at Spotlight help. We’re proud to be a HubSpot Agency Certified Partner, meaning we have the certifications and tools needed to start driving traffic, tracking customers, and converting leads. Get in touch with us to see what we can do for you today.
