Bombora Offers Visitor Insights With Real-Time Capabilities for Precise Personalization

EIN News | June 01, 2023 | Read time : 10:00 min


Enterprise businesses and online publications can now obtain demographic, firmographic, and B2B interest data on website visitors. That’s thanks to a low-latency solution from Bombora called Visitor Insights (VI) with Real-Time Capabilities, the company announced today. At the same time, Bombora has begun a search for customers for its pilot program who will receive first access to a new solution, called Bombora Company Surge® Signals, or Signals, for short.

VI with Real-Time Capabilities is the only first-party visitor tag that connects visitors to Bombora’s proprietary Intent data so enterprises and publishers can conduct powerful on-site advertising while simultaneously analyzing their visitors to personalize the content shown and prove value to advertisers.

Signals will enable customers to create target account lists showing Intent that will incorporate sophisticated, proprietary algorithms using Company Surge® data, the user’s goals, and other custom inputs by the user. This new solution integrates results from the user’s Bombora Historical Buyer’s Journey Analysis, delivering insights that are easier to access and apply to their sales and marketing campaigns.

“We tested the competitors, and Bombora’s Visitor Insights performed the best,” said Snowflake Senior Director of Account-Based Marketing Hillary Carpio. “Our marketing intelligence teams appreciate the ability to enable site personalization with enriched visitor data, and particularly the enhancement of the sales signal: The power to know when your active prospects are on your website — at that moment.”

VI with Real-Time Capabilities helps companies accomplish a number of tasks. Among them:

  • Build and Deliver Audiences: Within Bombora’s Digital Audience Builder, companies can combine VI with Real-Time Capabilities data with Company Surge® data to create targeted ads using even more data points
  • Historical Visualization for Analysis: Companies can view historical first party data alongside third party data to better understand visitor interest and build stronger account-based campaigns
  • Javascript response to page: The tag shows companies which topics a particular visitor consumed, enabling the company to feed that data into a third-party tool to learn not just which topics interest them but exactly which pages contain content on those topics and should be used to personalize the homepage to each visitors’ exact interests

“Every business with a website wants to know who’s visiting and why,” said Bombora President Mark Connon. “As it gives new powers to B2B sales and marketing teams, Bombora continues to innovate to serve the growing needs of its enterprise and publishing partners. And as our team creates the next big intent solution, Company Surge® Signals, we welcome the pilot participants who can help us perfect it and shape the future of Intent data.”

Salesloft Survey Shows AI Adoption Soars Among Sales Executives

Business Wire | August 01, 2023

Salesloft, provider of the first and only global AI-powered revenue workflow platform, today released the results of its 2023 State of AI in Sales Survey, which polled more than 500 U.S.-based sales executives. An overwhelming 95% of executives polled report their organization is currently using AI in sales in some capacity, and another 84% say their company has used generative AI in sales in the past year. “Generative AI is transforming nearly every industry right now. While it can help sellers draft pitches and write emails with unprecedented efficiency, the real power of AI lies in its ability to help sellers identify the next best action in their workflows to advance deals and improve the customer experience,” said David Obrand, CEO at Salesloft. “Backed by data-driven insights, AI can build real-time roadmaps that help sellers take the most important and impactful actions in the moment. This is a paradigm shift that will transform how B2B businesses engage with their prospects and customers, ultimately driving more relevant interactions and consistent revenue outcomes.” Salesloft’s survey also found that sales team burnout is rampant as sellers navigate an evolving landscape. More than three quarters (86%) of executives say they’ve noticed an increase in sales team burnout or turnover in the past year. Over half (57%) say they’ve noticed a moderate increase while 31% say they’ve noticed a significant increase. The survey indicated likely contributors to this are: Sellers are swivel-chairing between several software applications to perform their job: 40% of executives say their sellers need to log into 4-5+ applications to perform their job. Non-selling activities take up a significant portion of the sales team’s time: Nearly a third of executives surveyed (29%) said internal meetings and administrative tasks like data entry and CRM updates take up most of their team’s time. Amid this burnout, executives cite the ability to prioritize activities (52%) and increased efficiency and productivity for sales teams (49%) as the top two benefits for using AI in sales. Thirty nine percent of executives expect AI will take over more routine and repetitive tasks, freeing up sellers to focus on higher-value activities. In June 2023, Salesloft launched Rhythm. Powered by a proprietary, patent-pending AI engine called Conductor AI, Rhythm translates real-time buyer signals from across the Salesloft platform and partner integrations into a single prioritized workflow of the most important and impactful actions a seller should take in the moment. Unlike anything else on the market, Rhythm provides an explanation of why the action is important, building trust and intuition in sellers. “Watching my reps go through their Rhythm workflow is fantastic. They just run through their steps one by one, one click at a time,” said Vedant Namboodiri, Global Sales Operations Manager at Cin7. “Rhythm has been incredibly valuable in reducing the time our reps spend on admin and increasing the time they spend with customers. It makes me stop and think, 'Where was this when I was a seller?'"
