Their objective and expert insights greatly influence technology buyers’ decisions, and your ability to influence these influencers could mean the difference between analyst coverage/ recommendation of your product and...well, the absence of it. Before you say, “How hard can it be?” ask yourself these questions:

Best Marketing Techniques to Support Your Inbound Campaign

Posted by Amy Kenigsberg on Jul 6, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Marketers increasingly recognize that if they want higher ROI, more qualified sales leads, lower cost per acquisition, and increased brand authority, inbound marketing is essential. Inbound marketing is unlike traditional outbound marketing approaches that have marketers vying for customers’ attention via TV and radio ads, direct mail, trade shows, telemarketing, and cold calling. Instead, inbound focuses on having potential leads come to you via company-created Internet content that drives visitors to your website, engages them, and helps your sales team convert them into customers and loyal brand followers.

Is Your Content Marketing Paying Off? 10 Fail-proof Metrics

Posted by Amy Kenigsberg on Jun 17, 2020 3:22:00 PM



Practically all B2B marketers agree that content marketing works, but not everyone is clear on how exactly to calculate the ROI and business value of a company’s content marketing investment. Assessing the
quality of content - Is the content original and audience-appropriate? Does it tell a story or add value to the site? Is the tone, spelling, and grammar pitch-perfect? - is one thing. But determining the bottom- line impact or business benefit of each blog post, article, email, e-book, case study, podcast, infographic, or social campaign is quite another - and one of the trickier challenges facing marketers today.
