Contentgine Data Science Analysis
On January 21, Contentgine announced that it released an analysis of the target account lists (TALs) utilized by a sample set of customers. This analysis yielded three surprising results.

Ben Luck, the company’s chief data scientist, ran trials using Contentgine’s TALs to supplement the TALs from three customers: a digital signature company, a cloud communications company, and a financial ERP company. The first result did not surprise him. Contentgine’s TALs improved the clients’ TAL by creating ten to twenty times more engagement. However, he was surprised by how the Contentgine dataset showed clients missing market segments where they did not expect to compete and how the titles of their case studies and email messages impacted their prospect’s engagement.

"We have perhaps the world's largest dataset of content interactions as a result of our Perpetual Engine," Luck said.

"We have perhaps the world's largest dataset of content interactions as a result of our Perpetual Engine," Luck said. "We email content from our huge B2B content library to 50 million targets a month, and that produces over 1 billion intent signals per quarter. That data can be used to improve a customer's target account list."

"What did surprise me was that our data showed one aspect our clients were missing: market segments where they did not think they could compete. One, for example, focused on small business but we showed them that large enterprises would engage with them as well."

"The last result was the most surprising. In short, how you title your case study or email offer can directly affect whether a prospect engages. There's more to it that the report shows, but in short, the more specific you are in the title of the case study, the less likely you are to get prospects to read it. We were very surprised by that, and it now makes the naming and wording of case study offers in content marketing a new art and science. I am very happy to have made these revelations, as they directly improve our content marketing performance for our clients."

Luck expects to unravel more improvements to their TALs in the near future.

New RollWorks Data: B2B Revenue Teams Agree that the Lead Is Not Dead, But It's Also Not Enough

PR Newswire | April 25, 2023

Account-based marketing platform RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, today announced new research from B2B sellers and marketers that reveals what's really needed when it comes to B2B revenue generation, including the importance of the lead as part of a broader fit-focused, multi-signal approach. "We'll believe the lead is dead when sales does," said Jodi Cerretani, VP of marketing at RollWorks. "Despite marketing slogans from those seeking to bury the lead, the industry has yet to see a seismic shift where leads aren't still at the core of most marketing and sales strategies. That said, as validated by our findings, focusing on form-fills alone ignores too many potential buyers." Redefining the Lead: Only Bad Leads Are Dead; Leads Are No Longer Synonymous with Form-Fills Revenue teams responding to the survey unanimously believe the lead isn't dead and never will be. 63% of sellers and 56% of marketers say the only dead leads are low quality (poor fit) and 62% of sellers say leads will never become obsolete. Having said that, B2B sellers and marketers indicate that today's lead-related challenges demonstrate the need for a more expansive definition of top-of-funnel. 89% of marketers and sellers say that quality leads are now harder to come by. It's also clear that not all buyers engage equally; 83% of marketers and sellers find it difficult to engage the entire buying committee and 64% don't expect C-suite buyers to fill out forms. A New Top-of-Funnel: Fit Focused + the More Signals, the Merrier While high-fit leads remain important, given the limitations of focusing on form-filling MQLs alone, revenue teams are broadening their definition of top-of-funnel and using multiple signals to create leads. Marketers and sellers have decreased their dependency on form-fills, as other signals like ad clicks and first- and third-party account information have increased in importance. In fact, 87% of marketers are confident they can hit their marketing goals without traditional form-fills, 85% of marketers would pass a high-fit site visitor/ad clicker to sales without a traditional form-fill if they had it, and 81% of sellers would rather be sent a high-fit lead with a few site visits than a low-fit lead with a content form-fill from marketing. Continued Cerretani: "As B2B marketers continue to grapple with resource efficiency, no business can afford to focus exclusively on form-fillers and ignore other signals that identify in-market buyers. The key to modern marketers' success is implementing programs and plays to create and respond to as many categories of signals as possible. Instead of limiting themselves to just driving leads or MQLs that require a form fill, marketers are maximizing the at-bats of their sales organization by driving growth in multiple categories of top-of-funnel signals." The survey, conducted March through April 2023, consulted 850 B2B sales and marketing professionals. Learn more about how RollWorks can also help you implement a fit-focused, multi-signal approach.
