HP: ABM Compete Campaign

Winning Hearts & Minds with ABM

Leveraging deep intelligence and insights, we partnered with HP Indigo to make an emotional ABM appeal to once-loyal customers of a key competitor and generated many millions in opportunity value.


HP Indigo’s #1 competitor was in major transition. In an industry where partnerships are essential, thousands of loyal customers were uneasy and considering a change—HP saw an opportunity to capture market share.

We helped HP strike up conversations with these customers about their future with the right partner. Together, we created a swift and thorough compete campaign while building a framework for ABM initiatives.
