The MQL is Dead: Why and How to Focus on Buying Groups

Presented by

Terry Flaherty, VP, Principal Analyst (Forrester)

About this talk

Historically, classic demand gen approaches, like marketing qualified leads (MQLS) and BANT (Budget, Authority, Need, Timing) have been at the center of how marketing organizations evaluate their effectiveness. Yet as buyers have changed – both in the number of purchasing decision makers and buying journeys overall – these approaches have not evolved to match the needs of the current B2B landscape. The result? Marketing and sales teams are leaving money on the table. In this session, Terry Flaherty, VP, Principal Analyst at Forrester will discuss where these classic demand gen approaches fail and why they may be limiting your teams’ actual revenue potential. You’ll hear recommendations on what changes in thinking need to be made with Marketing organizations and how teams can begin to implement those changes.
