SOLUTIONS   |    Case Studies

 

Here are 2 examples of projects with powerful success stories behind them – ask us how we can help you succeed.

1000 Acres  |  $25M Mules

Strategic Partnerships & Alliances

Result:   $25 Million Investment Capital

The Challenge:      $25M Investment Capital needed.

1000 acres of pristine beachfront property.  No bank to fund and permit the project.  Ideas galore.   No plans to succeed.

The Objective:    1.)  Raise $25M.  2.)  Buy land.   3.)  Permit.   4.)  Sell.

  • With marching orders in-hand, we designed, developed and deployed one of our most successful projects → ever.

>  INQ’s expertise in Environmental Design is backed by 4 generations of landscape architecture – a green family heritage since 1926.

  • We created a World-Class GREEN Brand backed by Partnerships and Alliances to help pull the weight.  
  • We brought big mules:   Apple, PGA, NCAA, NFL, Banyan Tree, GE Ecomagination, Cushman & Wakefield, Toro, Audubon and many more – all while James Taylor sang our song.

The Results:

$25M investment capital (equity) raised with full approvals and permits for development.

With $25M in the bank, the project was fully approved with the highest of praise from Prime Minister Ingraham and the Bahamian Executive Branch.

Strategies  >  Communications  Results.

Go-To-Market → New Product Launch

Business Strategy / Services & Support

Result:   85% Conversion Rate   (C-Level / F500)

The Challenge:       New SaaS (Software-as-a-Service).  

New company.    No customers.   A plethora of competitors.  A cutthroat market.  A sales team burning $500K every quarter.

The Objective:  

1.)  Get 100 meetings at C-Level.    2.)  Introduce Company and SasS.    3.) Sell trial stage ASAP.

  • We designed, developed and deployed our best and most successful direct B2B campaign → ever.

>  INQ’s technical expertise features custom-designed software and hardware solutions.  Engineering, Sales and Marketing in Atlanta since 1984 – we cut our teeth with IBM.

  • F500 C-Level executives received an offer they couldn’t refuse.

The Results:  

100% open rate  →  85% conversion rate  →  50%+ trials.   That’s right:  

•   100% of F500 C-Level Executives received and viewed our pitch.  
•   85% met with us at C-Level.  
•   Over half approved next steps to trial / proof-of-concept stage.
