  • How to Inspire and Acquire with Live Video Feb 26 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Patricia Reiner and Timothy Garon, of (ISC)²; Val-Pierre Genton, BrightTALK
    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!

  • Prioritizing Intent Data in B2B Marketing Recorded: Dec 5 2018 53 mins
    David Pitta, CMO, BrightTALK
    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
  • Make Your Messaging Matter: B2B Messaging That Generates Leads and Closes Deals Recorded: Dec 4 2018 46 mins
    Christa Tuttle, CEO, Launch Marketing
    Sales is great at speaking with prospects, uncovering their particular needs and pain points, and making adjustments on the fly based on what is resonating and what isn’t during a conversation. However, your website, marketing collateral and revenue marketing campaigns can’t make these same real-time adjustments based on body language, questions and other customer feedback—whatever potential customers see is what they get.

    As the B2B landscape shifts and buyers do an increasing amount of research on their own, it’s more important than ever for tech execs to prioritize strong B2B messaging so they clearly articulate the value prop and compel prospects to engage. In this presentation, Christa Tuttle, CEO of Launch Marketing will guide participants through strategic approaches and best practices for building company messaging that gets right to the heart of what customers need and triggers revenue-generating actions.
