CargoBot Case Study

Executive Summary

At the time of initial engagement in 2017, CargoBot had an outdated website that was generating no carrier or shipper leads. After the initial consultation, CargoBot decided to engage Rizen for a full Inbound Marketing retainer that included SEO, Email Marketing, Automation with workflows, Growth Driven Design, Social Media consulting, Content Creation, Buyer Persona research, as well as PPC campaign development and management (Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Adwords). Rizen followed the Inbound methodology for Design and Marketing. We outlined the buyer personas and determined the buying stages for the visitors of the site. This allowed for the design, content, and PPC ads to be specifically targeted towards getting the most conversions.


From no online leads to 600+ carrier leads and counting in just under 4 months.


From no shipper leads to 15+ leads and counting in under 4 months.

How Rizen Helped
