Platform Consolidated Group Increased Lead Conversion with its Acquisition, Lead and Nurture Programs

Established in 2015, Platform Consolidated Group (PCG) is the fastest growing asset-finance aggregator in Australia. PCG is supported by Consolidated Operations Group (COG), which makes PCG one of the only publicly listed asset finance aggregators in the APAC region. With solid support from COG, PCG assists businesses to thrive with scale and financial backing by designing remuneration models that suits several kinds of businesses.

Offering asset finance, novated leasing, vehicle procurement, and aggregation, PCG’s excellence comes from unrivalled support and access from high-quality lender networks.

Currently, PCG has access to over 40 lenders providing clients with some of the most attractive funder remunerations in Australia. PCG has worked with several notable clients including: Melbourne Finance Broking, Mildura Finance, beCarWise, Platinum Direct Finance, Fleet Network, and Fleet Avenue.

Challenges

Currently, there are two brands PCG is supporting Platinum Direct Finance (PDFA) and Melbourne Finance Broking (MFB). These two companies are gaining thousands of leads every day. By gaining an impressive number of leads, the main challenge PCG experienced is that sales would contact ‘non-sales-ready’ leads instantly, which resulted in a very low conversion rate.

Sales Wasting Too Much Time in Calling Cold Leads

Cold leads were called right away and although many leads expressed interest in PDFA and MFB’s financial services, they were not ready to commit to a sales consultation.

 

Non-Customised Email Blasts

PCG implemented basic email blasts that were sent to all leads containing no customisations and limited consistency related to each leads customer journey. With non-customised email blasts, PCG experienced high bounce rates and unsubscribes from their email campaigns.

Basic Email Design  

PCG was sending out non-customised email blasts on basic email templates which resulted in thousands of non-opened emails and high unsubscribes. Without attractive email templates, PCG’s email content was mostly looked over by leads.

Solutions

Since PCG implemented Hoosh’s on-brand email template for PDFA and MFB, lead nurture programs were launched successfully allowing quick building with leads and producing great results such as:
