Elliance Case Study

Right Fits Liberate Product Growth

Sopheon Acclaim Products

How rapid A/B testing zeroed in on the right-fit prospects for a new innovative software product.


Sopheon, the global leader in innovation management developed a new software for product management. The company is rapidly evolving from funnel-based marketing to flywheel-based marketing using PLG (product-led growth) methodology. With a few pilot users, the company set its eyes on opening up the North American market. This ambition prompted them to call Elliance for help.


Elliance moved on two fronts. On the product adoption side, Elliance offered guidance on improving the new user experience. On the demand generation side, Elliance devised and ran a series of rapid A/B tests in succession to bring down the cost per lead and cost per acquisition for new customers.

Transitioning to the Product-Led Growth Flywheel

First, Elliance advised Sopheon to fortify the user experience for trial users so they knew how to begin using the product. Without a step-by-step guide on taking the next steps and a compelling product video, the users would be left without guidance on how to begin using the product.

Demand Generation with Rapid A/B Testing of Creative & Landing Pages

Elliance rapidly tested various ads, landing page copy variations, geographies and devices to determine the winners and losers. After gathering sufficient data, we decided to feed the champs and starve the chumps. This quickly brought down the cost per lead and cost per acquisition of new prospects and customers.
