5 Creative Ways Content Marketers Can Better Support Their Sales Team
Wednesday, April 1, 2020 | 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time | Free Webinar

Most content marketers focus on meeting marketing’s needs to build brand awareness, drive demand, or nurture prospects to convert them to qualified leads. Marketing, working with subject matter experts from business units or product marketing, generates many content pieces and customizes them to satisfy different marketing channels. Sales, in a way, is not necessarily on content marketers’ priority list. However, for complex sales or when selling technology, content to showcase technology and product benefits is key to moving prospects through the sales funnel. Content marketers need to work with both sales and marketing.

Pam Didner will share with you some creative ways to expand your content efforts to the sales side. She’ll help you understand that sales is just another marketing channel for you to showcase your company’s content.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The process to better leverage content between sales and marketing
  • Key elements to personalize and customize content for sales
  • Tips to ensure that sales is using the right content for target accounts

  • Pam Didner, Author, Effective Sales Enablement (@PamDidner)

How to Bring Physical Events into the Digital World
Now Available On Demand | Free Webinar

Physical events like seminars and conferences have been a mainstay tactic for marketers since the beginning of time. Well, marketing time. But times change. Physical events are expensive to produce and it’s getting harder to drive attendance due to budget constraints, time constraints and now even travel restrictions.

But there is another reason why physical events are falling short: data. With physical events, there is no way to track attendee behavior, and we learn very little about them. And that is why many leading brands are bringing their physical events into the digital world.

Attend “How to Bring Physical Events into the Digital World” and learn how to build a virtual engagement strategy to generate better quality leads and drive more pipeline. In this virtual session you will learn:

  • How to build and scale webinar programs
  • How to create digital trade shows and conferences
  • How to create a hybrid physical/virtual experience
  • How to convert virtual engagement into insights and data

As physical events become more challenging to produce and less effective, it’s time to build a scalable, cost-effective, virtual engagement strategy.

Register now and learn how.

  • And finally, siloed customer experiences

How can you overcome these challenges? Through the adoption of an open digital experience platform (DXP).

Think Beyond ABM to ABE to Grow the Business
Now Available On Demand | Free Webinar

While the pursuit of growth rests on a time-honored foundation of customer acquisition, high levels of retention, and cross-selling to increase the value of the customer portfolio, the old methods of mass marketing followed by sales calls to qualify and close leads are failing.

Globalization has driven commoditization, and to compete successfully in a B2B environment today, enterprises must move their attention away from short-term revenue tactics to strategically focus on the outcomes their customers are trying to achieve. With this focus, not only are customer expectations more likely to be met but a deeper understanding of the customer’s context will drive innovation, enabling the enterprise to escape commoditization’s stranglehold.
