AUSTIN, Texas, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Silex Technology America, Inc., a leading embedded technology company specializing in network and wireless technology, today announced it selected TREW Marketing as its marketing partner for brand positioning, messaging and marketing communications activity planning. Silex Technology provides hardware, software, embedded modules, and turnkey connectivity products to device manufacturers and partners with leading suppliers including Green Hills Software, Freescale, QNX, and Qualcomm Atheros. The company chose TREW Marketing because of the agency's distinct experience in marketing to engineers and proven success leading a co-marketing campaign that drove a 320 percent increase in new leads for Silex Technology.
Building on Proven Results
TREW Marketing led the efforts for Silex Technology's 2012 co-marketing campaign with Freescale, promoting Silex Technology as the exclusive provider of Wi-Fi connectivity technology for Freescale's i.MX 6 platform. Through this launch, Silex Technology sought to:
- Build awareness of its Wi-Fi solutions among i.MX 6 customers
- Drive traffic to the website
- Generate leads and create new opportunities for its embedded Wi-Fi sales team
To achieve these goals, TREW Marketing developed a product launch and co-marketing plan centered on web and content marketing. A new campaign on the Silex Technology website educated design engineers about the company's wireless connectivity solutions for Freescale's i.MX 6 platform. TREW Marketing led the creation of product collateral, a news release, videos, and an online co-marketing event that all drove traffic to this dedicated web portal. A white paper download and multi-touch e-mail campaign also engaged visitors to learn more. And, Freescale featured the Wi-Fi solutions in its Design News customer e-newsletter and Product News sales e-newsletter to build awareness with design engineers and the Freescale sales force.
In the first two months of the launch, web traffic grew by 30 percent, and monthly leads grew by 320 percent with a nearly 50 percent lead-conversion rate. This in turn created new opportunities for the Silex Technology embedded Wi-Fi dedicated sales team.
"TREW Marketing's integrated approach and diligent execution of the co-marketing campaign with Freescale delivered record results for Silex Technology," said Keith Sugawara, vice president of business development at Silex Technology America. "The agency's further insight on our company positioning and marketing activity planning will set us up for even more success as a leading network technology company."
