The Best Intent
B2B buyers expect vendors to understand their needs, pain points and expectations. Savvy marketers are leveraging signal data in their go-to-market strategies to meet (and exceed) those expectations. Demand Gen Report’s special report on intent data shares expert insights from analysts and practitioners, highlighting what’s working (and what’s not) in B2B marketing and sales.
Live & In Person
B2B marketers are pointing to a resurgence of in-person events as one of the top drivers of opportunities and pipeline conversions. Companies are going beyond trade show booths to using smaller events like roundtables and executive dinners to deliver intimate, personalized experiences. And the latest tools are giving them a deeper understanding of what their event attendees want and need from their companies and their content. “Attendee signals” allow real-time customization of these in-person experiences. Read Brian Anderson’s article to learn how you can better position your organization to blend in-person and digital marketing to drive results.
