ERT works with pharmaceutical, biotech and CROs to facilitate and gather data from ongoing clinical trials. As the company’s Senior Marketing Specialist, Sheryl Walder managed the trade show and webinar strategy. Webinars were a key tactic to generating leads for its Marketing Development team.

With its previous platform, ERT experienced ongoing problems. The inability to quickly access attendee data after a webinar slowed down the sales follow up process. Sheryl also consistently saw attendees drop off due to a lack of support for mobile devices.

Solution

Instant webinar reporting, faster sales follow up

  • Quick reporting turnaround: ERT’s prior webinar platform forced it to wait 48 hours before it received webinar attendee data. With ON24, ERT got its reporting data in real-time, helping the Marketing Development team reach out to engaged attendees.
  • Integration and engagement tools: ON24’s seamless integrations between Salesforce and Pardot helped ERT streamline webinar promotion and provided insight into program performance. With engagement tools like surveys, Q&A, and poll results, the Marketing Development team prioritized follow-up and equipped themselves with the intel to have more meaningful sales calls.
