SideBox Takes First Place By Making It Rain With Twilio Client


The bar for our bi-weekly developer contest continues to rise as SideBox takes the top prize.  The entry from co-founders Billy Coover and Barry Harkness fully embraced the theme of driving sales with a fully-featured, polished new product – the Campaign Call Center.  Some much needed Vitamin C for small business sales, Billy and Barry supercharge the oft-neglected landing page with Twilio Client to generate more calls, close more deals and track performance along the way.

“Internet Awesome” Sales With Smarter Landing Pages

Landing pages are an important tool many high powered marketing organizations use for their online and offline campaigns, but often services professionals have neither the time nor the tools to leverage them effectively.  SideBox’s Campaign Call Center brings this valuable sales driver within the reach of a small service organization by doing three key things.

First, it makes creating landing pages easy.  Businesses can choose from a variety of conversion-oriented templates and create custom Twilio-powered telephone numbers for each campaign.  The pages are beefy with features, sporting tracking, geolocation and social functionality.

Next, the Campaign Call Center connects the user visiting the landing page with a human being with an uber-slick Click-to-Call feature.  Twilio Client connects a visitor interested in the campaign directly to the business’ customer service organization, giving the customer service agent a screen pop with the customer’s data for faster, consumer friendly experience – all within the browser.

Finally, Barry and Billy track the entire customer experience, allowing businesses to A/B test their landing pages and track conversion effectiveness to keep the best and ditch the rest with confidence.  The Campaign Call Center is a serious shot in the arm for small business sales in a single, easy-to-use package.

Making It Hail with a Rainmaker App

We’re showering the SideBox crew with some serious hardware for their contest win.  Barry and Billy get a Twilio Timbuk2 Messenger to stash all the new invoices that will be coming their way.  They’ll also get free passes to Twilio  in San Francisco next week September 21st and 22nd, plus $100 in Twilio credit to fuel Campaign Call Center. And, of course, they continue development on their winning entry on a brand spanking new 11-inch Macbook Air.
