Customer Marketing

Nucleus // noun // The central and most important part of an object, movement, or group, forming the basis for its activity and growth.

At Outreach, it’s no secret that our customers are the center of our universe. Being One With the Customer is an Outreach core value - because our customers’ success, feedback, and dedication to excellence are what drive the future of our platform. This is why we have chosen to name our first-ever customer awards ceremony The Nucleos. The Nucleo is our logo mark and we thought it appropriate to recognize these award winners as a part of our brand and of our organization itself. But even more importantly, the Nucleos are an opportunity to recognize our customers as our company’s nucleus, as the central force that drives everything we do.

We’re excited to announce the first annual Nucleo Award winners at our user conference, Unleash, taking place May 6-8 at Paradise Point in San Diego. Seven outstanding customers -- each of whom has driven success at their organization through their exceptional use of Outreach, passion for sales excellence, and dedication to operating at their peak every day -- will be recognized on stage and throughout the conference.

The Nucleo Awards finalists are key customer representatives at Unleash, and should be looked upon as a crucial resource for all others looking to reach the peak of productivity and excellence. If you’re coming to Unleash, look for them as you walk around, and be sure to strike up a conversation with them. They each have endless knowledge to share, and are happy to use their experiences to help everyone around them. We hope you look to them as thought leaders in the space -- because we sure know they are!

We are so excited to recognize the various Nucleo Awards and exceptional finalists below.

The Gold Miner is an expert at prospecting, connecting with cold leads, and illustrating the value of their product immediately. Outreach is their right-hand-man in all of this, helping them prospect in new and creative ways.

The Rookie of the Year award recognizes an Outreach customer who has been using Outreach for less than a year, but has already seen evidence of increased success.

The Power Couple of the Year award goes to a marketing leader (or a marketing & sales leader pair) who has ensured that all leads are followed up with, sales is enabled with the best language and assets, and both teams are kept outstandingly happy.
