Agent3 Acquires oneninefive
Leading global end-to-end Account-based Marketing provider Agent3 has acquired oneninefive, a successful demand generation specialist. This acquisition will significantly enhance Agent3’s ability to deliver account-centric demand generation programs to its international customers. The existing Agent3 demand generation resources combined with oneninefive make up a team of 40 consultants who will focus on the delivery of higher quality account engagement and close leads faster.

Together, Agent3 and oneninefive seek to address the issue of volume over value in demand generation by delivering a more thoughtful, data-driven, and insight-led approach to get better outcomes.

Clive Armitage, CEO, Agent3: “Increasingly, our customers have been turning to us to apply our account-based methodology to lead generation, as opposed to traditional methods which all too often are biased towards quantity as the only measure of value."

Explained Clive Armitage, CEO, Agent3: “Increasingly, our customers have been turning to us to apply our account-based methodology to lead generation, as opposed to traditional methods which all too often are biased towards quantity as the only measure of value. This account-centric, personalized approach delivers needle shifting results for our clients, but bringing oneninefive into the fold enables us to do so at scale. Today is another huge step in the development of Agent3. With this announcement, I’m confident that our overall proposition for our customers just got even stronger.”

“In addition to the issue of disillusionment with the current demand generation process, for me, there are two macro events that are further driving the importance of effective demand generation,” added Jordan Adams, CEO, oneninefive. “oneninefive is so named because we operate in all countries in the world and this scale, combined with Agent3’s personalized, account-centric approach means we’re creating significant opportunities for our customers to build better demand generation campaigns. Firstly, the relatively recent appointment of CMOs to the board means they are now directly responsible for organizational growth, and therefore any campaigns executed need to show a clear ROI. Secondly, the death of third party cookies in 2022 will make it increasingly challenging for marketers to track leads without a data-driven approach and a deep understanding of B2B audiences, their interests, challenges and intent. Our proprietary technology and first party intent expertise solves both of these issues delivering the high quality leads that marketing teams need to fuel growth.”

Significant investments from Agent3 in end-to-end ABM capabilities led to this acquisition. Agent3 has offices in London, Woodbridge, Sydney, Cheltenham, New York, Seattle, Sofia, and San Francisco. Its customers include Salesforce, Pure Storage, Intel, Sony, and LinkedIn.

Integrate Launches New Product Features to Drive Precision in ABM

Integrate | November 16, 2022

Integrate, the leader in B2B Precision Demand Marketing (PDM), today announced new product features that enable marketers to be more precise and powerful in their account based marketing (ABM) strategies. The new features in Integrate’s Demand Acceleration Platform include Account Profiles, Target Account list import, and Target Account list optimization, which provide greater insight into cross-channel campaign performance by account, automates target account lists from various sources, and ensures more precision with budget spend against ABM campaigns. A recent survey Integrate conducted in conjunction with global research firm, Demand Metric, on the "2022 State of B2B Marketing Budgets," found that only 27% of marketers say that ABM is a key part of their strategy and 53% plan to spend less on ABM in 2023. The report suggests that this is a result of how difficult it is to implement ABM successfully. In contrast, marketers are primarily focused on the trifecta of (1) a buyer-driven & cross-channel strategy (54%), (2) an always-on approach (43%), and (3) traditional demand gen (43%). In fact, according to Forrester’s 2022 State Of ABM Survey, 26% of “ABM” initiatives do not actually follow any tenets of ABM best practices. "In theory, ABM is in many ways just good marketing, but in practice, it's incredibly hard to get right," said Colby Cavanaugh, SVP of Marketing at Integrate. "It's evident that B2B marketers are looking for ways to be more precise, more agile, and more personalized in their approach, and we are supporting customers toward achieving predictable pipeline." The new product features within Integrate’s Demand Acceleration Platform strengthen marketers' ability to execute ABM with precision and extend their investments in ABM, and include the following functionality: Account Profiles allow for an easy at-a-glance view into target list reach and engagement, giving marketers greater visibility in cross-channel marketing performance. Marketers can get a view of engagement across target account lists and zoom into an account-by-account view of engagement. Target Account list import makes it easier and faster to import target account lists automatically from leading ABM vendors, sales teams, or customer success teams, giving marketers greater flexibility in how they bring in account information. Marketers are able to optimize and customize their target account lists and eliminate manual processing to get marketing campaigns quickly underway. The list can be updated automatically at a user-defined interval e.g. daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc. Target Account list optimization optimizes lead targeting across your entire target account list ensuring a more even distribution of opted in leads from each domain on your list. This can be configured at the source level or at the campaign level. "If there’s one thing we’ve learned in these past few years of uncertainty, it’s how important it is for B2B marketers to take a buyer-centric, cross-channel strategy so they can reach their buyers better,” said Aaron Mahimainathan, Chief Product Officer at Integrate. “That's why at Integrate, we are building products that support B2B marketers across the marketing maturity continuum with a Precision Demand Marketing approach to bolster both ABM and traditional demand generation efforts." "If there’s one thing we’ve learned in these past few years of uncertainty, it’s how important it is for B2B marketers to take a buyer-centric, cross-channel strategy so they can reach their buyers better,” said Aaron Mahimainathan, Chief Product Officer at Integrate.

RollWorks Ushers in New Level of Intent Data Sophistication with Open Beta of Keyword Intent

RollWorks | December 02, 2022

Account-based marketing platform RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, today unveiled the open beta of RollWorks Keyword Intent. The company's proprietary intent offering helps marketing and sales teams track intent signals that make sense for their business, find more accounts showing those relevant readiness signals, prioritize accounts, and personalize messaging based on the content they are engaging with throughout the buying journey. When RollWorks Keyword Intent is layered with intent from partners Bombora and G2, RollWorks has the industry's most sophisticated intent data approach. "Keyword Intent is a groundbreaking new solution that raises the bar for intent data," said Mike Stocker, SVP of Partnerships, RollWorks. "RollWorks' unique approach is not and either/or but all — by offering our own keyword intent data, combined with best-in-class Bombora Intent and G2 buyer intent, we are providing multiple, corroborating sources of intent that give organizations the best possible results to allow them to be more certain that an account is actually in market. We're the only solution with this level of sophistication." RollWorks Keyword Intent: A Multi-Layered Intent Data Approach With finite resources, marketers and sales teams can't target all of their accounts at once. As a result, they may miss out on in-market accounts or get the granularity they need, such as which messaging will resonate with their target audience to drive strong engagement. Running high-performing, efficient campaigns is key to their success. When layered on top of Bombora and G2 intent in the RollWorks platform, Keyword Intent gives B2B organizations greater confidence and certainty that the accounts they reach out to are actually in market. It helps them tap into unknown audiences that are ready to buy, and they no longer have to cast a wide net and sift through unqualified leads. Features and benefits of Keyword Intent: Find accounts that are showing intent on terms that you weren't able to track before (e.g. very specific product names or competitor names) Get keyword recommendations to understand what you should be tracking based on your existing site content Achieve a better understanding of what accounts are researching Gain greater confidence that accounts are really showing intent through the layering of multiple intent data sources with different methodologies Unlock more ways to utilize keyword intent data "You lose 100% of the in-market accounts you don't act upon," said Jodi Cerretani, VP of Revenue Marketing at RollWorks. "With a high level of granularity and flexibility in keyword selection, Keyword Intent gives marketing and sales teams more meaningful and precise intent signals to enable better account identification and prioritization of accounts. This allows organizations to quickly fill gaps in their current go-to-market strategy while growing and protecting their current business." "You lose 100% of the in-market accounts you don't act upon," said Jodi Cerretani, VP of Revenue Marketing at RollWorks. The opportunity for intent data in 2023 is promising — In a recent RollWorks survey of 1,000 marketers, nearly 1 in 5 (18%) rely on intent data as a core tool in their martech stack. RollWorks customers who use intent data say: "We are getting more informed, personalized conversations with prospects thanks to the magic of intent topics - an incredibly impactful feature." "We're reaching more accounts in our ICP than ever before. Also, it's giving us intent data so we're able to help our new business team focus on more qualified accounts. In our past, our target account lists weren't as strategic as they are now and that's thanks to the data we are receiving from Rollworks. I think it's helping our marketing and sales teams align much more than we ever had in the past and it keeps us focused based on data rather than assumptions." "I also love the intent data that as an SMB organization was too expensive to get separately. It's great to have it here within RollWorks." Visit RollWorks to learn more about how Keyword Intent can give you greater confidence that the accounts you reach out to are really in market. About RollWorks RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, offers ambitious B2B companies an account-based platform to align their marketing and sales teams and confidently grow revenue. Powered by proprietary data and machine learning, RollWorks' solutions address the needs of organizations large and small — from those with best-in-class ABM programs to those just beginning their exploration.
