THE SOLUTION

Bonfire identified Smartsheet’s target personas and their pain points. Based on this data, a series of animations was developed showcasing Smartsheet’s unique ability to adapt with an organization and how new features could help enterprises make faster, better decisions.

Next, Bonfire created a two-pronged distribution strategy. First, key CWM influencers were identified and targeted. Assets were then deployed across social channels using a hyper-targeted social distribution strategy centered around job titles within target organizations.
