Elusive Buyer 2.0: How Marketers Move Them from Anonymity to Revenue

This webinar is perfect for you if:
You need to identify prospects faster
You need more visibility into the buying process
You need more highly qualified sales opportunities
You need to be more relevant from the start
You’re afraid you might be leaving revenue on the table

Key Takeaways:

Why anonymous accounts are not as invisible as you might think
Why every impression your marketing makes counts
How Moneyball theory can help you find hidden revenue opportunities
Why personalization is powerful and how it can go wrong
When to move from individual prospect to named-account strategy

  • Death of the Marketing Campaign Recorded: Aug 6 2014 42 mins
    Allen Gannett is the Chief Maven and Founder of TrackMaven
    It is harder than ever for today’s marketers to capture and retain customers. Buyers today are even more empowered with an increased access to information. And now, marketing teams must compete across a growing array of digital channels to get their audiences’ attention. Customers get bombarded, and it becomes much harder to know if you are reaching your customers — and if your messages are resonating.

    All this means that the era of campaign-centric, start-stop marketing is over. Marketers can no longer wait until after a marketing campaign ends to determine if it is having an impact. Marketing must be data-driven, continuously improved with predictive outcomes. This webinar will examine how the best marketing organizations are breaking out of the campaign-centric marketing trap, achieving predictable outcomes, and outpacing their competition.

    Results from a Demandbase/Ziff Davis survey on B2B marketing priorities, challenges and the Account-Based approach to marketing
    B2Bs sell to accounts – that is obvious to B2B salespeople but historically hasn’t played a s significant role as marketers plan demand generation programs. Where sales focuses on the accounts that are most likely to become revenue, marketers are often still running campaigns focused on generating a high volume of leads with the right titles, working in the right departments - regardless of account, when the reality is that you need to do both.
    With leading analyst firms now adding account-based marketing practices into their research segments, B2Bs need to consider why this strategy is growing and what they can do to attract and convert more of the accounts that are most likely to become revenue. This webinar will share results from a recent survey investigating how B2B marketers are reacting to new Account-Based strategies. We will discuss:
    • The #1 strategy B2B marketers are focusing on in 2013
    • The factors driving content marketing decisions next year

    • The top challenges B2B marketers are likely to face in 2013
