Trek Global is a SaaS-based ERP company whose solution targets the multi-billion dollar per year US-based warehousing industry. Like many Startups, Trek Global had placed their focus on getting their software ready for market and had not yet established an internal full-time marketing team. Now Trek Global faced a daunting marketing reality: They were in competition with global ERP providers with deep pockets, compounded by a target audience who had never heard of them nor knew that they could benefit from their solutions.
The Creative Idea:
