Now, with a centralized team of 8, we’ll share how we invested $600,000 last year to achieve $20M in pipeline and $8M in closed-won business from webinars and videos hosted on BrightTALK.
In this talk, we’ll share learnings from a decade of webinar and video experience:
- Using a framework for: people + process = solutions

- Establishing an optimal mix of content + demand tactics to meet growth objectives
- Measuring success through lifecycle modeling and attribution reporting
Samantha Stone, Founder, The Marketing Advisory NetworkRecorded: Feb 6 201941 mins
Have you ever presented a killer campaign only to have management reject it because they didn’t like it? Or worse, did you get pressured to move forward with creative elements you knew wouldn’t resonate with your buyer? Or maybe what you’re getting back from design is not hitting the mark and you can’t figure out why? The disconnect between our buyers and those who approve campaigns is often large and painful to cross. Yet bridging the gap between the art and science of marketing is a job we can’t afford not to optimize.
In this session, we’ll explore proven methods for using buyer insights to not only enable creative processes to thrive but to appeal to the measurement obsessed approvers at the company.

By 2020, 90 percent of businesses will have moved to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, seizing both the competitive advantages of digital evolution -- and the economic and strategic benefits of maintaining legacy applications on premises. But once your data moves outside your private architecture, you're facing a new world of potential attacks and security breaches that your current security practices just can't match.
Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

Content operations, ContentOps for short, has been around for a long time, though the average content professional would be hard-pressed to define it. ContentOps means having a system for content production, day in and day out, that allows us to deliver content at scale. Processes that include copy-and-paste have limited capacity, and it's time for organizations to change their processes that have lots of administrative overhead. It's time to replace outdated production methods with streamlined operational models.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Rahel Anne Bailie, Chief Knowledge Officer at Scroll UK for this free, one-hour webinar.

There’s always more than one priority in B2B marketing.
As marketers, we strive to get the balance right to guide our actions for developing a strong brand, shaping our narrative in the marketplace, and creating demand from our marketing channels.
Increasingly, the digital behaviors of our ideal audience continue to fragment. No longer are they dedicated to a single device or source or input (voice vs text). This perpetual change has challenged decade old algorithms to better recognize their intentions. B2B marketers now face a new priority. How do we leverage Intent signals and prioritize the use in go-to-market efforts?
Join David Pitta, CMO at BrightTALK who has been leveraging various signals of intent data to prioritize resources, channels, and demand creation over the last 10 years.
In this session, he’ll cover:
-Looking at the layers and purpose of Intent signals in B2B
-Separating account from person-based intent
-Leveraging (the three C’s and P based intent) category, content, competitor, and product-based intent
-Activating and measuring business value from intent

How to efficiently maximise real impact in a data-driven marketing world.
All too often, marketers get caught up in their channel-specific metrics – clicks and impressions for display and social media, clicks and opens for email, attendees for events etc. But whether you’re a marketing leader or channel manager, what really matters – and what you want to optimize for – is the impact each marketers has.
In this webinar, featuring marketing leaders from Bizible and Marketo, we’ll discuss how marketers can engage, measure and optimise their efforts to make sure they’re making a real impact, not just serving impressions.

With Cisco telling us that 80% of web traffic will be video by the end of this year, it's clear that our target audiences want to be inspired and engaged when they self-educate online. The challenge for B2B marketers is that creating live webinars and videos is considered resource-intensive and hard to scale. This is a point of frustration for marketers as these content formats consistently rank among the most effective demand generation tactics out there.
Join this webcam panel with a publisher, digital marketer and product marketer to understand how to create more authentic connections with live content and how to acquire more leads that engage with your webinars and videos. After joining this Talk, you will have actionable insights on how to create webinars and videos at scale while driving more ideal audiences to your live and on-demand content. Plus, you'll get some benchmarks data on the conversion lifts you can expect in terms of pipeline contribution and conversions to bookings. Enjoy!
It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.
Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.
There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!
*How to identify your AI needs
*How to identify your decision criteria
*The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
*How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy

All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.
The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.
Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.
