10 0 CONTENT MARKETING E X AMPLE S 5 ShipServ Pages – The Movie Company: ShipServ Originally featured in: Fab 15 Content Marketing Projects by Jeremy Victor Description: John Watton, former CMO of ShipServ, a B2B marketplace for the maritime shipping industry, had a problem. His company sold a technologically advanced product to a market in which buyers were typically skeptical and highly resistant to change. His goal was to find a friendly, non-threatening way to get their attention, educate them and drive more prospects into the sales funnel. The result: a two-minute stop-motion video entitled, “ShipServe Pages: The Movie.” Watton states, “We needed a way to break the ice [and] to show suppliers the power of online marketing. We went low-tech with the stop-motion video and created Rex, a spare parts supplier, hero and modern-day everyman.” Watton describes the results as, “Highly successful. The innovation is really in how we’ve integrated it with our other social media and content marketing efforts.” Example: Watch Rex in his feature movie “By making a complex message manageable and easily digested, we’ve driven people into our funnel at a faster rate.” —John Watton, CMO of Shipserv 7
