Marketing Needs and Objectives of Mailinblack

When Mailinblack turned to Appvizer, their primary objective was clear: to quickly obtain new qualified leads in order to increase sales.

Additionally, upon the release of Cyber Coach in 2021, the publisher also wanted to use Appvizer as a medium to expand their visibility and raise awareness among their target audience about this type of solution.

Furthermore, the campaign implementation needed to be seamless, with easy tracking of results.

Implementation of the Appvizer Strategy

The Chosen Strategy

Appvizer deployed a solid and sustainable inbound marketing strategy for Mailinblack, aiming to quickly capture quality leads while maintaining long-term performance.

2021: The First Campaign

The first campaign began in 2021, focusing on Protect. It included:

  • The writing, by Appvizer, of three SEO articles on topics related to cybersecurity and email protection. Mailinblack was featured in these articles through contextualized citations (thus, more enticing) and advertisements.
  • A promotional article, written by the Mailinblack team themselves, to increase awareness of the software (shared on social networks, in Appvizer newsletters, etc.).
  • A package of 240 clicks redirecting to the Mailinblack website.

Renewed Trust in 2022...

In 2022, Mailinblack chose to collaborate with Appvizer again, twice (at the beginning and middle of the year), by ordering the writing of four additional sponsored articles and a banner on the website.

This was primarily aimed at promoting the Cyber Coach service.

...and in 2023!

Finally, in 2023, the publisher updated their Appvizer product page to include Cyber Academy and recommended a package of clicks.
