Bombora Pioneers B2B Services

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, Sep 29, 2021 @ 03:42 PM
  • Stevie-winner Bombora is a marketing data company that arms marketers with information that allows them to approach new targets with confidence 
  • Bombora’s Company Surge Analytics uses intent data to tell which businesses are researching the products that marketing/sales leaders and their competitors sell

About Bombora

Bombora is a marketing data company that tells B2B marketers exactly which companies are showing an increased interest in the marketers’ goods and services. Armed with that knowledge, marketers can approach their new targets with confidence. This intent-driven approach revolutionizes the way businesses market and sell to other businesses through transparent data built on a quality ecosystem.

Bombora is a pioneer in the field of B2B intent data, and due to the ubiquity of the Company Surge product, many in the field use the terms “surge” or “surging” to describe increases in intent signal. More than 6,000 customers use Bombora data, and the company predicts increased adoption ahead, as more than 70% of B2B marketers will use third-party intent data to target prospects and engage with groups of buyers in selected accounts by the end of 2022. 

Bombora’s intent data is sourced from its exclusive data cooperative of more than 4,000 highly trafficked B2B researched sites. The co-op provides information on when businesses are actively researching products or services, signaling buying intent. It indicates when a business is consuming content on a topic significantly more than usual, according to its historic data consumption behavior and benchmarks.

B2B purchase intent data has emerged as a critical tool to increase business performance. Bombora’s Company Surge Analytics helps marketing and sales leaders by using intent data to tell which businesses are researching the products that leaders and their competitors sell. With more than 35 integrations, Company Surge is available within the platforms that sales and marketing professionals already use on a daily basis, making it easy to activate these insights. 

For example, if a sales team has a target account list, they can upload that list to Bombora’s interface, and in return receive a list of companies on that target list that are actively researching the product or services. Company Surge allows businesses to sort based on a prospect’s interest across multiple topics, called topic clusters. These clusters are often more indicative of purchase intent than a single topic. Armed with these insights, sales and marketing teams can identify businesses that are not actively researching relevant topics and add them to a top-of-funnel digital advertising campaign that delivers brand awareness messages. Meanwhile, businesses that are actively researching relevant topics are hot prospects and can be routed directly to sales immediately. Using the data in this way can lead to increased marketing engagement, reduced cost-per-lead, efficient ROI for the marketing budget, and an expanded pipeline. 

Bombora won a Bronze Stevie Award for New Product & Service Categories - Business Technology - Business or Competitive Intelligence Solution in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Stevie-Winner Ties Insight Led Strategies to Consumer Engagement

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, Sep 22, 2021 @ 10:11 PM

Illumis™, by Valassis, a Vericast business, is a transformative marketing platform that combines best-in-class technologies, innovative media and robust intelligence to empower marketers to directly tie insight-led strategies to high-performing consumer content.

Consumers are constantly adapting to today’s realities, embracing new interests, and consuming different media. This shifting behavior, coupled with a landscape that is rapidly evolving, is a challenge for marketers seeking to build integrated strategies responsive to today’s consumer.


Illumis was purposefully built to plan, execute, and optimize marketing in a seamless way to expand reach and improve results. This unified marketing platform helps marketers keep pace with the changes in consumer behavior; unifies the disparate tools marketers must manage and balance when creating campaigns; and removes silos around data and execution.

The platform offers a competitive, data-informed approach to omnichannel media buying, fueled by the powerful, predictive intelligence of the two-time award-winning Valassis Consumer Graph™. The Consumer Graph unifies massive amounts of data by making 7 trillion daily model calculations to help customers improve marketing strategy, audience targeting, engagement and results.

How Illumis brings data together to uncover consumer motivation is unique. Using patented analyses and rich text mining on over 110 billion bid stream signals every day, they can discover consumer interest as well as a propensity to buy. They have access to 33 billion daily location signals to understand where consumers like to shop and where they live. This data helps to build a more complete, custom audience for each campaign. All the data is anchored to a household for stability and for the ability to scale – to neighborhoods and targeting across channels. With this, Illumis allows advertisers to discover new high-value markets, targets, and ways to reach consumers. It also spotlights the best media – across both print and digital channels – to connect with the right audience to drive commerce. Illumis uses machine-learning for real-time optimization and to continuously learn and improve, sparking further discovery for consumers and growth for marketers.

There are challenges around the fragmented nature of marketing technologies. Illumis’ integrated platform helps to solve those pain points by delivering meaningful multichannel engagement with an architecture that minimizes data loss and unifies intelligence for optimal results.

For example, longtime Valassis Direct Mail Insert client, La-Z-Boy, wanted to drive sales as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and stores reopened, pivoting to digital ads ahead of an omnichannel approach. Predictive data in Illumis revealed high-propensity shoppers in-market, who the company engaged with through Display Ads and Direct Mail Inserts. Illumis also identified prospects outside the trade area who received Display Ads alone. Digital ads extended consumer reach and outperformed industry benchmarks. Overall, the omnichannel campaign influenced $2.4M in revenue and a 15:1 return on ad spend.

“The discussions, the planning, and the next steps were so professional, respectful and smart,” said Kevin Mauldin, La-Z-Boy Owner. “(It) reassured me that Valassis is still an awesome partner.”

Additionally, Forrester conducted a Total Economic Impact™ study that evaluated the potential financial impact and return on investment for brands using Illumis. Forrester developed a composite organization and aggregate three-year financial analysis based on interview data, which yielded a 110% increase in revenue from ads; nearly 4:1 incremental return on advertising spend; and an 83% increase in ROI – all without increasing costs from previous marketing platforms. Details here: https://intelligence.valassis.com/rs/275-QRU-089/images/Forrester-TEI-Of-Illumis-From-Valassis_March-2020_Final_Updated-20200903.pdf

Driving results and building connections comes down to capitalizing on high-impact moments that deliver the right message at the right time to the right consumer – which requires reaching audiences through several, high-impact media formats. A recent Vericast study found when consumers see an ad in print and online, 52% say it captures their attention. Not only does Illumis help marketers measure what consumers do in these moments, it makes it easier to understand what media drove engagement. Using a closed-loop connection with measurement and campaign insights, marketers can refine strategies and media mix to grow results from campaign to campaign.

More recently, the power of the Illumis integrated platform enabled olive oil company Filippo Berio to increase household penetration and drive in-store sales at key retailers across the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast. Using data from Illumis, the campaign targeted high-intent consumers who grocery shop in-store, omnichannel and use delivery, and the profile was continuously optimized by real-time sales. Consumers were targeted when activity like recipe lookups indicated they were in a buying mindset. The display advertising campaign ran in two flights, spaced one month apart, and outperformed both viewability and click-through-rate benchmarks. Both flights of the campaign drove a 6% sales lift at a key retailer, surpassing the benchmark of 1.1% - 5.7%.

“Working with Valassis and their wealth of data allows us to target [the right] consumers to drive household penetration and trial for our brand in a way that is efficient for our campaign and budget,” said Meghan Boyd, Marketing Manager at Filippo Berio.

Valassis won the Gold Stevie Awards for Marketing/Public Relations Solution in The 2021 American Business Awards ®.

Calder Capital’s Growth During COVID-19

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, Sep 15, 2021 @ 02:57 PM
  • Calder Capital, LLC is a mergers and acquisitions advisory firm for small privately held companies
  • The firm grew significantly despite the coronavirus pandemic, which dropped the industry average by roughly 20%; Calder’s revenue grew by 85% and transactions by 74%

About Calder Capital, LLC

Calder Capital is a lower middle market Mergers & Acquisitions Advisory Firm focused on representing sellers of industrial, distribution, and business services companies, as well as strategic buyers seeking platform and bolt-on acquisitions in the same market segments. 

Founded in 2013 by Max Friar, the boutique mergers and acquisitions firm is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At its core, the company spends its days calculating the value of small privately held companies and subsequently engaging with the owners of those companies to locate buyers and consummate a sale transaction with the buyer that is the best fit in terms of price, purchase structure, and continuity for the business. Typical clients are industrial, distribution, or service businesses with 10-100 employees where the owner has no natural successor and wishes to transition out of their business generally for retirement purposes. 

Prior to 2020, Calder operated out of one office and had never broken 23 transactions in a single year. The company had experienced growth in most years of its existence, but 2020 was truly a watershed period in terms of breakout growth, despite COVID negatively affecting the M&A markets. In 2020, the firm opened four new offices and closed 40 successful transactions, which represents an 85% increase in revenue and a 74% increase in closed transactions compared to 2019. 

Led by Founder and Managing Partner, Max Friar, the firm took a number of intentional steps that fostered its growth in the face of the coronavirus backdrop that decimated deals nationally by double digits. Calder Capital’s initiatives include: launching a service offering specifically focused on helping distressed/turnaround businesses locate buyers quickly; catalyzing a Franchise Outreach Program specifically targeted at helping franchise owners transition successfully; implementing a sales program that targets 300 business per week to inform them of Calder’s services, and deploying a Buy-Side M&A Services program that guarantees unlisted leads for clients. 

Calder’s achievements, particularly in 2020, are significant because M&A transactions were down 13-15% across all sectors internationally and down 22% in US-based small businesses. Despite this, Calder Capital has grown significantly in the face of strongly unfavorable industry headwinds. 

Calder Capital won the Gold Stevie Award for Company / Organization Categories - Company of the Year - Financial Services - Small, a Bronze Stevie Award for Company / Organization Categories - Fastest Growing Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees, and a Bronze Stevie Award for Entrepreneur Categories - Entrepreneur of the Year - Financial Services in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Support Staffer of the Year

Paige Dudek is the backbone and spirit of VOMO. As a company that exists to change the world by serving those who serve others, Paige exemplifies everything it means to be a “VOMie”. VOMO is a small, close-knit team that thrives because of every extra step that Paige takes. She takes care of
hundreds of unseen tasks that keep the company
running smoothly. 

In September 2019, Paige stepped up to lead the sales team. In doing so, she turned what was once a stressful environment into a fun, exciting atmosphere through team-building games. She managed to simultaneously operate daily office functions such as ordering supplies and manning the phone. Her willingness to help and her ability to work cross-functionally are two of the many attributes that earned her the title of Human of the Month, September 2019. 

When the coronavirus shook the world and VOMO needed to shift, Paige didn’t miss a beat. VOMO relaunched the Be A Neighbor campaign, and Paige was at the helm to ensure it functioned without a hitch. She spent her personal time mastering the platform overnight as she sourced and posted various serving opportunities to the campaign page. In addition, she learned the ins and outs of WordPress, HubSpot, Mailchimp, and Canva in the span of one week to seamlessly manage the national campaign. She also took on managing all social media for the campaign while still completing her regular work, and somehow never letting the snack box run empty. 

A woman who wears many hats, Paige’s unending dedication to VOMO is evident through her passion for everything that she does.

Testing Lab Ensures Hand Sanitizers Met FDA and CDC Standards During COVID-19

Posted by Hailey Roos on Tue, Aug 03, 2021 @ 02:46 PM
  • Microbiological Testing & Consulting is a Chicago-based testing lab registered by the FDA
  • Small lab size allows MTC to uniquely meet their clients’ needs
  • With the whole world shopping for hand sanitizer during the pandemic, MTC’s clients were under significant pressure to deliver, and Microbiological Testing & Consulting helped make it possible

About Microbiological Testing & Consulting

Microbiological Testing & Consulting is an FDA-registered microbiological testing lab in Chicago, Illinois. MTC provides state-of-the-art microbial, sterility, preservation, and product development testing for clients in the personal care industry, a critical component in the development of safe and effective consumer products. 

What sets Microbiological Testing & Consulting apart is its size. MTC is a small lab, which allows them to be nimble in their ability to satisfy clients’ needs. With state-of-the-art equipment, MTC offers clients the testing services they expect from a large organization but delivers it with the personalization of a boutique lab. Clients appreciate that they can speak directly with lab personnel and discuss specific issues and timeframes. They enjoy rapid turnaround and MTC’s ability to re-prioritize as necessary to keep production lines running smoothly, something that larger competitors cannot offer. 

MTC’s COVID-19 Response

When the pandemic struck the nation, Microbiological Testing & Consulting became an essential business. Due to the CDC’s recommendations surrounding hand hygiene as a means to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, hand sanitizers were in high demand and in short supply, so the FDA authorized local production and published specifications for efficacy against COVID-19. MTC’s clients quickly switched their product lines from personal care products to hand sanitizers, and with the coronavirus spreading quickly, there was an intense pressure to provide the market with products that would protect consumers and contain the spread of the virus. 

Because hand sanitizers and other OTC products cannot be released to the consumer market without FDA-approved microbial testing, MTC’s lab services became critically important, and a quick turnaround was essential. MTC worked around the clock, accepting samples from across the region and extending hours to accommodate critical testing. Staff performed Kill Time studies to ensure that the alcohol-based sanitizers were effective, and if not, they consulted with their clients to reformulate their products to perform within CDC and FDA specifications. MTC troubleshot their clients’ formulations, adjusting where necessary to align tolerances or increase effectiveness. They tested the purity of each sample to ensure there were no bacteria present, and if necessary, they identified the pathogens and devised a production plan to eliminate them. 

With the whole world shopping for hand sanitizer, MTC’s clients were under significant pressure to deliver, and Microbiological Testing & Consulting helped make it possible. 

Microbiological Testing & Consulting won a Bronze Stevie Award for Company / Organization Categories - Company of the Year - Health Products & Services - Small in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, Jul 28, 2021 @ 10:28 PM
  • BSI Solutions fosters novel thinking and creates custom solutions designed to meet complex organizational challenges
  • The Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR) platform is a fully immersive virtual learning platform that allows teachers and students to enter the classroom from anywhere. 
  • VR Technology is a natural learning solution for future generations, and BSI Solutions is ready to innovate for the future  

About BSI Solutions

BSI Solutions provides innovative and transformative development services to global corporate and government partners. The company fosters novel thinking to create customized, state-of-the-art solutions designed to meet the most complex organizational challenges. The core expertise is artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain technology, XR technology, staffing and program management.

BSI Solutions was founded in May of 2019 by retired US Army veteran Dr. Kendrick Carroll. The company started with very humble beginnings with just one client and one office, and has since grown to over 20 business partnerships, over 60 employees, and operations nationally and globally. Dr. Carroll has fostered an undeniable passion within the company for empowering youth for future growth. Under his leadership, BSI Solutions has created the first 100% student-focused program to provide career-bound students with full-time career opportunities upon graduation. 

Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR)

As schools across the nation navigated the new distance learning challenges created by the pandemic, innovative technologies were critical in ensuring that children’s educational experience is protected and enhanced. As an innovative solution to this growing issue, BSI Solutions created the Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR) platform. This interactive, fully immersive platform uses the power of virtual reality for education and training and provides students and teachers with stand-alone VR headsets that enable them to enter the classroom from anywhere. 

NEVR offers increased levels of embodied learning and engagement that allow students to interact with teachers in real-time, as well as interact with, manipulate, and build objects and virtually touch items they may not have access to in their own classrooms. 

Participating educational institutions first identify which classes would be best suited for a virtual offering for lectures. Each instructor then works with a BSI Solutions software developer to identify how they would prefer for their classes to look and function within virtual reality. Students and instructors are able to design and create their own avatars to use while in the virtual environment. Unique experiences such as virtual field trips are also created.

VR Technology is a natural learning solution for future generations. It connects the innate learning language of students with the ability to comprehend the presented lesson plan. Technology continues to be the ultimate culture neutralizer, and with the unknown waiting around every corner, virtual reality platforms are the future. 

BSI Solutions won a Bronze Stevie Award for COVID-19 Response Categories - Most Valuable Technical Innovation in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Nutricraft provides safer alternatives to traditional stainless steel cookware

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, Jul 22, 2021 @ 09:00 AM

About Nutricraft

Nutricraft is a provider of safe, non-toxic, and health-conscious high-quality cookware. Their goal is to provide non-toxic cookware to keep the original food nutrients intact and educate people on safe cooking and proper nutrition that will have a lasting impact on consumers’ health and nutrition. After launching Nutricraft in the Australian market nearly three years ago, they have had massive success globally. 


Nutricraft uses unique 316Ti Titanium Stainless Steel on the interior of their cookware, which makes the product 20x more resistant to corrosion and pitting than any other stainless steel brand. This durable, hypoallergenic, non-porous, and non-reactive cooking surface creates the best possible cooking experience, allowing users to cook with less to no oil, as the minimum moisture cooking method maximizes nutrition. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Nutricraft pioneered the “Try Before You Buy” program so people could experience the cookware firsthand and see how Nutricraft can benefit them. They are the only cookware brand offering this program. With instructional videos, Nutricraft teaches consumers how to use their cookware. 

In addition, during the pandemic, Nutricraft transitioned its business to online marketing, and sales continued to grow as more people spent their time at home cooking. 

As Nutricraft hit more and more business milestones, they started the Nutricraft Livelihood Program, which helps uplift people from poverty and make a positive impact on lives.  

After the huge success of the ‘Try Before You Buy’ program, Nutricraft has rolled out a  global campaign for Reseller’s Program.  It offers business opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals who want to earn extra income, start their own business, or sell cookware products in their stores or shops.  


Nutricraft has envisioned a trusted brand that does not only care about health and wellness but also helps in income generation and livelihood support.  Through Reseller’s Program, everyone has an equal chance to reach their financial goal while enjoying the lifelong benefits of safe, smart, and healthy cooking.

Nutricraft won the Gold Stevie for Company / Organization Categories - Startup of the Year - Consumer Products Industries in the 2020 International Business Awards® and Bronze in the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards for Excellence in Corporate Innovation.

Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne of Taylor Medical Center was nominated for the Frontline Medical Hero of the Year Award for her untiring service to the Jackson, TN community during the COVID-19 pandemic. While most businesses closed doors and providers worked from home, Dr. Taylor Moragne and the staff at Taylor Medical Center kept the doors open to the patients of Jackson. 

taylor medical center 2Many patients found themselves without access to medical care and were unsure where to turn for help. Because most of these patients in this region of West TN are uninsured or underinsured, they have the highest burden of chronic health conditions, making them even more vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus. 

These patients needed to have their illnesses managed, medications refilled, and guidance delivered about decreasing their risk and exposure during the pandemic. Dr. Taylor Moragne met and provided them with a COVID testing center at no cost. When LabCorp (the facility used to process the test) ran out of solution, swabs, and collection tubes, Dr. Taylor Moragne purchased these items to assure testing. She also became a community partner with the local Health Department to provide free masks to the Jackson community. Today, the Taylor Medical Center is providing free vaccinations to uninsured individuals in the Jackson, TN community, and is doing its part to get the vaccines into arms to beat the COVID pandemic. 

Taylor Medical Center won two Silver Stevie Awards: for COVID-19 Response Categories - Frontline Medical Hero of the Year, and for Company / Organization Categories - Minority-Owned Business of the Year in The 2021 American Business Awards®.
