  • The increase in open rates allowed them to book about 21% more demos while at conferences which led to a significant boost in brand visibility and customer acquisition.

Company Overview

gaiia is the newest player in the telecommunications industry. They recently carved out gaiia (raised $13M) off of oxio (acquired for $100M - YC W2021) and are disrupting the OSS BSS arena. They are specializing in software to improve the customer management infrastructure for telecom companies and ultimately increase satisfaction at the customer level.

Challenges/Pain Point

Despite their team of 35 amazing engineers and massive technical knowledge, gaiia encountered a persistent issue: their emails were going to spam. As it is common in the email infrastructure space, their team did not have the niche expertise to optimize their email deliverability and their infrastructure was suffering from it. Their DNS was not well configured and monitored, their third party apps were not integrated well and their emails were not verified. In this crucial phase of their growth, it was a priority that they had the best deliverability possible.

Solution/Strategy

Marc reached out to our team at Palisade and we dove deep into the challenge, immediately identifying areas where we could improve gaiia’s email deliverability and security protocols. Collaborating closely with gaiia's Head of Growth, we streamlined their email delivery system and security protocols, ensuring that their communications reached inboxes, not spam folders.

  • “The DNS process was overall very smooth. Sam & the team at Palisade created key checklists for our team & walked us through how to complete each step on calls to ensure there was no confusion.” Shawn McIntyre - Head of Growth at gaiia

We completed the implementation quickly and had their emails reaching inboxes within a week. 6 months later, we are still working with them to improve their email deliverability and monitoring.

Our intervention not only fixed the immediate problem but also saved gaiia but created tons of value in expected revenues and saved precious time from their dev team.

From the outset, their team showcased their expertise, pinpointing the email problems and rolling out effective solutions almost instantly.
