EP 7: What The Growth!? - Integrate with Complementary Software to Drive Growth

In the seventh episode of What The Growth!?, Visitor Queue’s chief executive and Co-founder, Nick Hollinger, goes over how you can integrate with complementary software in order to get in front of their customer base to grow your business.

The idea here is to integrate with a complementary software to get in front of their user base.

We use this strategy at Visitor Queue and are looking to more heavily invest in it in the future.

You’ll want to start by making a list of complementary software that you may be interested in integrating with.

You’ll want to consider if their target market aligns with yours, how many clients they may have, how easy it is to integrate with them and other considerations more specific to your business.

Once you’ve made a list of your ideal software to integrate with, you’ll want to narrow it down to the 1 software that you want to approach.

We enable B2B companies to identify the anonymous businesses that visit their website and personalize their experience. Your sales team can now follow up with the visitors that don’t convert, while marketing can personalize your website based on firmographic information to drive up conversion rate.

Again, look at the criteria mentioned above to help you with narrowing the list down.

Once you’ve decided on the one software you want to integrate with, approach them in an attempt to integrate and partner with them.

Some companies have an open marketplace that allows any software to integrate with them, so look for this first.

Otherwise, you can reach out via contact form, LinkedIn, via email or other means, looking to speak with the person in charge of integrations and/or partnerships. 

If you have a hard time getting through to this company, start working on other companies in your list.

When setting up these integrations and partnerships, you’ll want to become close with their team. Then, propose co-marketing initiatives like blog posts, webinars, featured listings, email campaigns, and so on. This is where you’ll see most of your shared users start to come from.

While you're here!

98% of your website visitors leave without converting. Visitor Queue allows you to identify who they were, and personalize their website experience based on their needs. Your sales team can now connect with them to close the deal, while marketing can provide a personalized version of your website based on visitor firmographics to increase conversion rate. All of this starting at $39 USD per month. Start your 14-day free trial now!
