Do we write for the user? In an online store it is quite something to say that product descriptions in addition to mere SEO can help you sell or not. This post is not meant to rediscover the wheel, but rather about how to correctly apply Content Marketing in your eCommerce store, and how to benefit from it.

How to Leverage the Power of Marketing Automation for Your Demand Gen Operations

Article | March 11, 2020

Marketers need to tailor their messages to suit personas and targeted accounts better. This form of marketing abandons the idea of fishing with a wide net. It instead promotes hunting for your biggest fish with spears. Marketers need automation tools to enhance their account-based marketing operations.

Article | March 27, 2020

In today’s world of rapid-fire product release where – it’s been said – if your product is good someone will copy it, what sets one company apart from the next when everything else is equal?

So, how can marketers and salespeople work together to improve the customer experience? Implementing account-based marketing (ABM), and tightly aligning marketing and sales, is the number one value marketers can bring to the customer experience today. ABM is the strategy of defining the target list of accounts that you want to approach, and creating the channels, messaging and content to communicate with them in a way that feels personalized.
