Your demand engine depends on a high-quality sales process. That sales process requires a rock-solid foundation to ensure you’re able to connect with your customers at every stage of the funnel. A powerful CRM tool can help.
Your customers demand a high-touch experience. To deliver, you must nurture each customer throughout their journey—no matter how long it takes.
Demand generation enables you to use each marketing tactic in your strategy to create touchpoints throughout the customer journey. As a result, you can build a lasting relationship with your customers that withstands the test of time (and those come-and-go marketing trends).
Software and SaaS companies take full advantage of available technology when it comes to providing services to their customers. Yet, many still fail to do the same for their business. Marketing automation technology makes it possible to gather more leads and B2B sales without doubling or tripling your work.
Modern technology has drastically improved digital marketing efforts. Thanks to marketing automation, marketing departments no longer handle monotonous chores like individually sending out emails, planning out call lists, or manually creating sales reports. Despite its benefits, countless marketers have failed to capitalize on lead scoring.
What is attribution?
When running marketing campaigns, it’s only natural to measure the outcome so you can justify your costs and prove there's an ROI. Now, suppose the campaign was a resounding success and you saw an increase in new leads and your sales team closed a lot of deals. Obviously, you did something right, but the question becomes: what did we do to get these results? Attribution can be tricky to track, but tools like HubSpot make it easier.
Why you Need Content Optimization
Content is king. For businesses looking to generate leads or sales from organic searches, content marketing can prove to be a valuable channel. Many businesses post content in the hopes of getting it to rank on the first page of Google. However, most content posted by businesses is in need of content optimization. Posting content is easy, but optimizing the content so it ranks well is tricky.
