Applauz Recognition

Applauz Recognition is an award-winning HR platform that helps promote employee engagement and retention through recognition and awards.

The Bread and Circuses team helped contribute to Applauz’s already robust inbound marketing and organic lead generation capabilities by developing a content strategy focused on topics of greater relevance to their ideal customers, producing engaging search-optimized content aimed at generating more qualified leads and, ultimately, more customers.  



The real business value of employee recognition is underestimated. Businesses are spending money and resources recruiting and training when they should be recognizing and retaining.

In the highly competitive space of employee recognition software, Applauz already had substantial inbound marketing capabilities and was looking to strengthen its position and create down-funnel content that better explained the business value of recognition to their ICP, and as a result, increase the volume of valuable leads generated.
