Content Marketing Case Study

Yubico Builds a Robust Sales Pipeline With a Content Marketing Engine

Yubico is a cybersecurity pioneer that has reimagined phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) with hardware security as a service that eliminates passwords, accelerates zero trust strategies, and reduces credential theft by 99.9%. To help Yubico engage buyers in a crowded cybersecurity market, Firebrand established a content engine that built awareness, generated leads, and drove conversions.

Key Results


Contributed to 100% YoY marketing-generated pipeline growth


2.4x higher landing page conversion rate than B2B benchmark


35% more time spent on Yubico’s blog than B2B benchmark


70+ content assets created in 2022 alone


Spanned 10+ horizontal and vertical themes



The first step was to build a content engine that could support buyers throughout the sales journey. Working closely, the Yubico and Firebrand teams established an efficient process for content planning, production, and approvals. With it, Firebrand helped Yubico launch a comprehensive library of assets, spanning eBooks, white papers, blog posts, case studies, and solution briefs.


To maximize the impact, every asset was grounded in sales insights and mapped to an agreed set of business scenarios and drivers, from evergreen use cases to timely topics such as the Executive Order mandating phishing-resistant MFA in Federal agencies and the growing cyber insurance requirements. Additionally, dedicated assets were produced for each target vertical to support the sales team’s industry focus. To create a full-funnel journey, Firebrand crafted blog posts to drive prospects to each gated asset, while an SEO content program leveraged content anchors and glossaries to increase overall volume of UVMs and direct buyers toward the blog.
