Advance Your Pipeline: Influence Decision Makers with Persuasive Presentations
When it comes to advancing the pipeline, B2B marketers face a common problem: audiences rarely want to be sold, but you have to generate new opportunities for sales. Webinars are amongst the best formats to engage with prospects, but how do we resolve the tension of not being sales-y while still generating revenue?
The good news is that research has analyzed how the brain wants to consume information when your intent is to persuade. The end result? Influencing decision makers with integrity to successfully increase marketing-influenced pipeline.

- Get inside your prospect's brain so that it hears your message
- Create a sound story foundation that works for both webinar invitations and presentations
- Incite action through this simple process for creating webinar presentations
- 4 techniques for non-salesy persuasion in your webinar presentation

As B2B marketing evolves, new data products are making content marketing more personalized than ever. But if you’re only valuing clicks and views, this narrow definition of success could be causing you to overlook up to 60% of hand-raising leads and valuable opportunities to personalize the content journey.

A poor presentation can have the opposite effect intended if marketers and presenters don’t approach the webinars that deliver value, insights, and authenticity to your audience.

David Pitta, CMO, BrightTALK and Trent Warrick, Content Marketing Manager, BrightTALK
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. Join BrightTALK's very own Val-Pierre Genton for a dialogue on one of the most important topics in marketing. You'll walk away from this session with insights on:
Truly defining your audience. We'll look beyond cookie-cutter personas and help you get into the mindset of your buying committee.

David Pitta, CMO and Tanya Dracolakis, Sales and Marketing Operations
Increasingly, the digital behaviors of our ideal audience are fragmented. No longer are they dedicated to a single device or source or input. 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.
In this session, we’ll discuss:
- Layers and purpose of intent signals in B2B
- Separating account from person-based intent
- Enabling Sales Development to activate intent-based lead products
- Measuring business value and ROI from these investments

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.
