    Abstract:

    Fundamentally, marketing automation refers to software designed for marketing departments to automate repetitive tasks. It helps identify, qualify, convert, and grow (up/cross-sell) customers by delivering relevant messages across channels. And it’s no longer just for B2B companies.

    Only 5% of businesses are currently using this technology today, yet those that do are generating outsized leads, conversions, and revenue.

    Our research shows that marketing automation:
    *Delivers value: 80% of MAP users see their leads increase, and 77% see conversions increase.

    *Is hard to choose: The top challenge in vendor-selection is simply understanding the differences in functionality between them.

    *Isn’t easy to implement: Only 29% said they had no issues or delays in getting results.

    Avoid the pitfalls your peers have already dealt with. Understand the opportunity value and how to get ahead fast.

    This research includes data from 243 marketing automation users and details on features, pricing, and services on 24 of the top vendors. We also conducted dozens of interviews and incorporated market share from data partners who spider close to 20 million websites.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:
    * Select the right vendor for you
    * Understand and avoid delays and challenges
    * Maximize ROI by using tactics that work best

  • You’ve read about keyword research, inbound links and optimizing web copy for search. If you follow the leading SEO experts, you undoubtedly know about Penguin, Hummingbird and Mobilegeddon… But what are they NOT telling you about?

  • Complex, closed, time-based nurturing often keeps leads hidden away from sales in the “black box” of lead processing. Frequently, prospects are visiting your content and signaling interest, but legacy marketing systems prevent those engagement signals from reaching sales quickly and intelligently, thereby diminishing your marketing efforts.

    What will you learn?

    • How to use real-time customer intelligence, the social sphere, and email to better engage customers and prospects
    • How to use technology to accelerate sales, including mobile
    • Why sales and marketing automation isn’t the silver bullet
    • How to help sales engage customers to close more business, faster
  • Marketing Automation is not a strategy. Too often marketers allow their technology to dictate their strategy, instead of leveraging technology to support it. Every company is unique, and cookie-cutter implementations are doomed to fail before you even send your first email or launch your first nurture program. Jason Stewart, VP of Strategy at B2B Demand Generation Strategy firm ANNUITAS, will share some of the most common mistakes made in marketing automation implementations and offers advice on how to make your technology serve your strategy (instead of the other way around).

    This webinar will help marketers:
    • Develop a content strategy to support your Buyer’s Journey
    through nurture programs
    • Fine-tune their lead scoring to deliver better leads to sales
    • Optimize performance over time so that no leads get left behind
  • Social media is about people. The holy grail of marketing is currently personalization.

    And while new amazing social media intelligence tools are making it easier than ever before to listen, analyze data, gain insights and make informed decisions, there is a real danger to over-automate.

    More and more social media strategies are employing auto-response, auto-Retweet, auto-content generation, auto-whateverpossible tools. This goes against the grain of social media and is a recipe for getting out of touch with your constituents.

    As @JoshDSullivan of Booz Allen put it, “No machine can be a miracle cure. Humans have to find patterns, ask questions, make the connections.”

    • How can you do that?
    • How can you ensure that your social media team is not getting overwhelmed and side-tracked by too much data and technological stimuli?
    • How can you enable them to respond vs. react to stay at the top of their game?
  • Learn how the data-driven marketing strategies from recent political campaigns can be adapted for use by brands. Featuring: Michael Beach, CoFounder at Targeted Victory, Eden Joyner, VP Media Strategy at Revolution Messaging, Michael Palmer, President at i360, and Michael Schneider, Director of Product Development at Bully Pulpit Interactive, moderated by Kaitie Coghlan, Customer Success Team Lead - Data and Political at LiveRamp.
