Marketing Automation + Content = Leads Sales Can’t Live Without
Wednesday, June 26, 2019 | 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time | Free Webinar

Sales teams need marketing’s help and marketing needs sales results to validate marketing’s existence. Yet, every day, in companies across the globe, the same story plays out — sales and marketing fail to connect, communicate and collaborate.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. With effective sales enablement campaigns focused on correcting the common misalignments between marketing and sales, you can build a bridge that improves collaboration, communication and drives better conversion.

In this session, Tom Martin, will show you how your marketing team can leverage any marketing automation platform with targeted and focused content, using content consumption data, lead scoring, first-party data and behavioral prediction logic to help your sales teams make every sales opportunity count. And love you for it.

Join us and learn:

  • How marketing can better enable sales via strategic content creation and planning
  • Why conversion isn’t always the best goal of your email marketing campaigns
  • How to build predictive behavioral maps within your marketing automation campaigns to deliver more qualified leads to your sales teams.

Re-Thinking Your Content Assembly Line
Now Available On Demand | Free Webinar

Content marketing has conquered B2B. Most companies now have well-grooved processes for producing content within predictable schedules and budgets.

But most of these processes are essentially assembly lines, moving the content from silo to silo, with fairly blind handovers in-between (from researcher to planner to writer to designer, etc.).

But great content can’t be made the same way we make toaster ovens.
It’s unique. Crafted. Specific to its audience, market and strategic context.

In this talk, we’ll look at the problems with the assembly line approach to content creation and consider an alternative that’s far more collaborative and creative (and also leads to way better content).
