Your marketing team is focused on efficiently delivering results, however as the buyer’s journey (if it can still be called that) becomes less linear and more complex, you’re facing ever-increasing stress on resources. To effectively reach and convert targets at scale, new perspectives and methodologies are crucial for balancing these competing needs.
In this live webinar, BrightTALK’s CMO David Pitta and Content Manager Trent Warrick will share how to maximize efficacy with authenticity, while scaling using intent data, and reserving your team’s resources for high-value activities.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
-How to identify authentic intent
-How to build your business by building trust
-How to scale through strategic use of tools and human capital
When you think of your customers as a jumble of demographics and lead scores, it's easy to miss the critical intent indicators that help you understand their pain points and needs on a deeper, more human level. For those of you who have started using intent signals to prioritize accounts or leads, you're likely challenged by the fact that anonymzed data without any context around where the engagement happened and for how long, makes it hard to turn intent signal into business growth. Discover the behavioral indicators that signal real intent for identifying and converting your ideal accounts and buyers. Learn how to use them to boost content and demand marketing success.
In B2B marketing, acquiring and inspiring prospects and customers can feel like a frustrating guessing game, but that doesn't have to be the case.

David Pitta, CMO and Tanya Dracolakis, Sales and Marketing Operations

This perpetual change has challenged decade-old algorithms to better recognize buyers' intentions. B2B sales and marketing teams now face a new priority. How do we leverage these new intent signals and prioritize them in go-to-market efforts?
Join David Pitta, CMO at BrightTALK and Tanya Dracolakis, Sales and Marketing Operations at BrightTALK to learn how to operationalize first-party intent data.

Creating videos that make an impact and drive business growth is easier said than done. Most marketing teams are skilled to tell stories via webinars, social, articles, white papers, collateral and eBooks. Video-based storytelling requires expertise that is rarely available in-house.

Today, B2B marketers have access to data that their left brain would only have dreamed of a generation ago. The age of “I know 50% of my marketing spend is wasted, I just don’t know which 50%” is behind us. If anything, marketers are drowning in too much data, courtesy of ~7,000 martech vendors.
Powered by technology, automation is allowing marketing teams to simplify and scale like never before. That said, we’re in danger of over-automating and losing the human touch. Let us remember that purchasing decisions are made by engaging the mind (left brain - IQ) as much as emotions (right brain - EQ).
So which data matters when you’re crafting inspiring stories, trying to reach new audiences and getting pressure to acquire more customers? How is it even possible to make authentic connections while you’re automating for scale?
Join David Pitta (CMO) and Val-Pierre Genton (VP Product Marketing) as they share proven strategies so you can do the same for your business. Their insights draw on viewer data across millions of professionals engaging with webinars and videos on BrightTALK.
