Case Study: Transforming Colocation Data Center Business Growth through Strategic Marketing
A thriving business in the technology industry approached us with the goal of expanding their customer base and increasing their cash flow. At that time, the company heavily relied on referral sources for acquiring new clients for their datacentre, which limited their growth potential. Additionally, high facility costs were putting a strain on their cash flow.
To address these challenges, we formulated a comprehensive marketing strategy that involved leveraging digital platforms, optimizing their online presence, and implementing innovative solutions. Through our recommendations and the execution of these strategies, the business achieved remarkable results and transformed into a profitable and successful venture.
To effectively grow the colocation business, we proposed the following marketing strategies:
Advertising on Google: We recommended running targeted advertisements on Google to reach a wider audience and generate more leads. By strategically selecting keywords and optimizing ad campaigns, we aimed to increase their visibility and attract potential customers actively searching for their services.
Email Marketing: We proposed implementing an email marketing campaign to engage with existing and potential clients. By delivering valuable content, special offers, and updates, they could nurture relationships, build trust, and convert leads into paying customers.
Finding the Right Target Audience: We conducted thorough market research to identify the ideal customer profile. This allowed us to tailor our marketing efforts towards the target audience most likely to benefit from their services and convert into loyal customers.
Finding the Right Platforms: We recommended identifying and utilizing the most relevant digital platforms that the target audience frequented. This included social media platforms, industry forums, and online communities, enabling them to reach a wider audience and build brand recognition.
Remarketing on Social Media: To maximize exposure and increase conversions for the datacentre, we advised implementing remarketing campaigns on social media platforms. By targeting individuals who had shown interest in the services but had not completed a purchase, we aimed to re-engage them and convert them into paying customers.
Executing the Marketing Strategies:
With a solid plan in place, we executed the marketing strategies for the client, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and continuous monitoring of the results. Key actions taken during this process included:
Monitoring Competitors: We closely analyzed their competitors, identifying their strengths and weaknesses. This enabled us to position the business more effectively in the market and highlight its unique value propositions.
Creating New Landing Pages: We designed and developed new landing pages that were optimized for higher conversion rates. These pages focused on key products and services, compelling calls-to-action, and a seamless user experience, encouraging visitors to take the desired action.
Promotion – A/B Testing: To optimize marketing efforts, we conducted A/B testing on various promotional offers and messaging. This allowed us to identify the most effective strategies and refine the marketing campaigns accordingly.
Focusing on Offers: We emphasized the unique selling points of their services through targeted offers and incentives. This encouraged potential customers to choose this business over their competitors, driving sales and revenue growth.
Implementing an Anti-Fraud App on Google Ads: To mitigate the risk of fraudulent clicks and ensure efficient ad spend, we integrated an anti-fraud app into a Google Ads campaign. This safeguarded their advertising budget, allowing for more effective targeting and greater returns on investment.
Building a Booking System during COVID: Recognizing the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we developed a custom booking system. This facilitated the utilization of their facilities by clients, ensuring optimal resource allocation and revenue generation.
Empowering Google Business Profile: We optimized the business’ Google Business Profile, ensuring accurate information, positive reviews, and prominent visibility in local search results. This enhanced their online presence and credibility, attracting more prospective clients.
Overhaul of the Website: We conducted a comprehensive overhaul of their website, focusing on enhancing its aesthetics, user experience, and search engine optimization. This resulted in improved website performance and higher organic traffic for the colocation business.
Optimizing Website Content: We conducted keyword research and optimized the content to improve its search engine rankings, driving more organic traffic and generating qualified leads.

Increased Number of Racks (to full capacity): As a direct result of the increased brand awareness and sales, our client experienced a surge in demand for their services. This led to the utilization of a greater number of racks in their facilities, reaching full capacity and maximizing revenue potential.
