Marketers are listening for the voice of the customer. According to early findings of a study from the CMO Council in partnership with SAP Customer Experience and Hootsuite, over 60 percent of the marketers based in Europe have formal customer listening initiatives in place.
Unfortunately, only eight percent of European marketers believe these programs are “excellent”, with most marketers admitting that their listening programs are just “fairly good”, listening through corporate owned formal feedback channels, but struggling to ingest unstructured intelligence from across the organization.
Part of the issue could be how organizations view critical listening posts. With early indicators pointing to marketers primarily viewing channels like social media as either free engagement tools or PR amplification channels, it is not a surprise that many marketing leaders are looking to tackle the issue of leveraging intelligence from customer voice to better deliver consistent, contextual and personalized experiences. The big question becomes how.

Sales is a scientific art; it takes someone who can translate their experience as a sales manager into an artful set of best practices. The science part requires the application of advanced data models to standard CRM data to understand their pipeline at greater depth. Blending the quantitative expertise of the data team with the experience, intuition and knowledge of the sales leadership ensures companies are able to use that pipeline analysis to correctly predict revenue. More importantly, that process helps sales managers manage and invest in their team and have data-driven conversations that will lead to exceeding revenue goals.
Join Sam Schuster, analytics team lead at Periscope Data, and Ben Loeffler-Little, head of sales at Periscope Data, as they discuss how analytics and sales have partnered to forecast new business revenue and manage pipeline. Together, they have built a tool that models new business revenue and identifies key pipeline trends to ensure sales leadership will hit their goals.
In this webinar, they will discuss:

- How to bridge the gap between technical tools and non-technical users
- How to model Salesforce data
- Business impact from using these visualization

As they look to build out their communities to appeal to a wide range of members, companies must rethink the types and formats they use for delivering relevant content. Webinars, videos and buying guides that directly cover products and services are always in play, but to stay relevant and sticky, companies must also offer value-added information, including peer reviews and independent analysis from industry experts, case studies that
show exactly how new products have worked for other
businesses, and best-practices advice on professional development and wider market trends.
Marketers should also encourage collaboration among the members of their communities and enable information sharing as much as possible. It’s clear that buyers rely heavily upon these peer reviews before making a decision.
Finally, marketers must work with analysts and other non-biased third parties to get their input on the market overall, and their business specifically, to help prospective customers make well-informed decisions.

More than any other time in the last 100 years, the buyer of today has made a dramatic shift in the way they make purchasing decisions. Unfortunately, many companies haven’t adapted to this shift and are not prepared for the continual evolution of this “digital consumer.” In this talk, Marcus Sheridan brings clarity to the way buyers have changed and exactly what companies must do to, not only align themselves with this shift in buyer patterns but take advantage of the digital age as well. If you like to be engaged, challenged, and moved, you’ll love this keynote with Marcus Sheridan!
Revenue performance has become standard for B2B marketers with more than 3/4 of global B2B marketing decision makers measuring marketing’s impact on pipeline & revenue. But as recently as a decade ago, the idea was radical. Marketing leaders adopted the practice, requiring cultural change, re-engineering of the marketing & sales process, & deep investment in marketing automation. We’ve seen the results; revenue marketers contribute nearly 30% more than other B2B marketers.
But, there’s been an unintended consequence. In many firms, marketing is now seen as the supplier of leads to a load-bearing sales force. That belies the reality that marketing is evolving to be the steward of the customer relationship across the lifecycle. The question for marketing execs is: “what measures & metrics demonstrate the full value of marketing to my organization?” Check out this on-demand session with our guest, Lori Wizdo, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, we’ll dig into practical approaches to that challenge, specifically:
- How to link marketing performance to corporate performance in ways the CEO, CFO & COO care about
- Which 10 metrics are more important to measure than revenue performance
- What metrics should be on the ‘Marketing Performance Dashboard’
AI makes it possible to know the B2B buyer like never before and to begin to answer critical questions about what works in attracting and engaging those buyers. B2B buying is conducted by buying teams, so why do most sales teams focus on just individual buyers?

Attention in today's online world is harder and harder to garner than ever before. Our clients, customers, prospects and leads tell us they have no time.

Maybe, in our quest to make our content consumable we’ve eliminated every element that makes our content interesting? It turns out, the most successful content creators in the world don’t worry about how long their content is. Instead, they apply two infinitely powerful psychological phenomena to catch, keep and capture, their audience's attention.
