“I run a digital chop shop at SAP,” said Ginger Shimp, Marketing Director, SAP North America. Shimp’s “chop shop” includes email, landing pages, whitepapers and more.
With 19 industries to cover, SAP created an extensive content marketing campaign that delved into relevant topics across those industries and also explored how personas within them would want to consume the content.
At MarketingSherpa Summit 2017, Shimp shared how the marketing team at SAP executed this expansive campaign and drove a 4.5% increase in email opens, over 9 million impressions and more than $23 million of marketing-generated pipeline.
