high-level executive decision makers

Linked Strategies Founder & CEO Nate Kievman

Nate Kievman’s founding of Linked Strategies was a direct result of his 10+ years experience in client acquisition for Fortune 500 companies, major IT providers, and professional service firms as both an independent consultant and head of his own full-services digital agency.

From extensive testing he saw that most “best practice” B2B marketing programs (such as content marketing) take a year or more to start yielding leads – and most are not the high-level executives required to close new business. Testing also proved email was hands down the most effective way to reach key decision makers. The glaring contrast was that while 90% of the budget was devoted to content marketing and other social initiatives, 90%+ of results came from Email Marketing.

So he honed a new strategy around email specifically designed to build rapport and establish trusted relationships with high-level executives that proved capable of bringing in quality leads in the short term. It proved to be so powerful, he closed down his digital agency and created Linked Strategies to focus on this model exclusively.
