Q&A with Marylin Montoya, VP Marketing at AB Tasty

Media 7 | May 31, 2021

Q&A with Marylin Montoya
Marylin Montoya, VP Marketing at AB Tasty is an experienced marketer with a history of propelling startups towards global recognition.

MEDIA 7: Could you please take us through your professional journey? How has it been so far?
MARYLIN MONTOYA:
I’ve had an atypical journey, and today I think it’s more the norm to see these atypical paths, but back in 2006 when I finished college, it was less common. I worked at a law firm for about a year before I decided it wasn’t for me (I was on track for law school), and I decided I wanted a very different path. I took a one-way ticket to Japan after that 1st year and never looked back. Since then, I have started my own entrepreneurial project, sold my partnership interest, got into marketing, moved to France from Japan, and went to business school. I have been in the technology space ever since. It’s been a great experience working in start-ups and seeing the process of growth take place, from conception (a couple of people) to full-fledged scale-ups with hundreds of employees. At every experience, you are able to add another scenario, a new challenge or objective you need to maneuver around and address, but you also start to identify the patterns and common challenges. It continues to be a very educational experience.

Leaders in customer experience today are making sure they incorporate testing everywhere, especially in personalization.



M7: How high does AB Tasty build end-to-end experiences that drive growth across its clients’ digital channels?
MM:
AB Tasty provides solutions that help companies validate ideas before investing in them, and then enables them to implement these validated ideas efficiently, whether we’re talking about a mobile application or a website. In terms of customer experiences, AB Tasty ensures that what’s being built for a specific customer is aligned with that customer’s expectations (a validated personalization scheme for example) and that the global experience exists without a glitch or mishap. Since ideas from copy, to the performance of a widget or banner, are validated, what the customer sees is the best version of that element. The ability to maintain this standard across digital channels creates not only consistency but also seamless experiences. Our solutions align internal teams (marketing, product, engineering) so that the end result is a highly personalized and seamless customer experience.

M7: What core strategies does AB Tasty adopt to help clients achieve cross-channel marketing success?
MM:
Consumers today go through a variety of channels to interact and discover brands. What’s key is for every experience with a branded asset, be it in-store, online or an application is that the experience be pertinent, seamless and technically perfect (no bugs or mishaps). Brands today have only one opportunity to make a great first impression and so the experiences from the first touchpoint have to be the best version of itself. AB Tasty empowers brands to combine testing with personalization, in order to make the experience not only as relevant as possible but also as optimized as possible. Leaders in customer experience today are making sure they incorporate testing everywhere, especially in personalization.


Don’t be afraid to test ideas and be wrong. You don’t have to get every answer right; you have to have the will and tenacity to be wrong and test until you’re right.



M7: What key suggestions would you give B2B companies fighting to find engagement and acquisitions through digital marketing?
MM:
I believe that tactically B2B companies have to employ many of the lessons in B2C. Although the transaction or sales cycle may be different than in B2C, there are many strategies that can be transferred. The big one is personalization. Few B2B companies take personalization to the degree that B2C companies do. The other is optimization and testing practices. These strategies have a real impact on driving more engagement and more conversion.

M7: What do you believe are the top three marketing challenges that have arisen in the post COVID-19 era?
MM:
For companies that were not investing in digital experiences, COVID-19 most likely had a very dramatic impact as everything moved online. Those companies have been in a race from the beginning of the pandemic to evolve their online strategies. The other is customer intelligence – those companies that had invested in understanding consumer behavior online are the ones that have had the most insight to know how to maneuver and react during COVID-19 and have likely experienced a huge advantage due to it, while many other companies have been “driving blind”. The third is very specific – logistics companies and their impact on customer experiences at e-commerce companies. With the massive surplus of online business, logistic, delivery, and transportation companies had to improve and adapt their practices to manage the increase in demand. This created a collateral effect on e-commerce companies that had to navigate delays or delivery bottlenecks while managing customer expectations.


With the massive surplus of online business, logistic, delivery, and transportation, companies have to improve and adapt their practices to manage the increase in demand.



M7: How are promotional tactics changing for products or services launching during these periods?
MM:
There has been a large adoption of interactive experiences and hyper-personalization. Websites have continued to infuse social and social media itself has become a marketplace for brand discovery – either through influencers or paid promotion. Product offerings have become more personalized themselves, through bundling strategies but also customization. Go-to-market has come more accelerated, with shorter timeframes and more dynamic, but ephemeral content. Social plays the main role for launch, along with interactive experiences through video or mobile applications in parallel.

M7: The best piece of advice you have ever received?
MM:
Don’t be afraid to test ideas and be wrong. You don’t have to get every answer right; you have to have the will and tenacity to be wrong and test until you’re right.

Revenue Enablement Startup Enablix Upgrades CRM Integrations with Account-Based Analytics Insights

Enablix | September 06, 2022

Enablix, the sales content enablement solution for revenue facing teams, has enhanced its CRM integrations with the release of their new feature: Account Based Engagement Analytics. The first of its kind within the sales enablement field, the new capability improves outbound sales and marketing efforts by providing more visibility into how prospects interact with sales and marketing content. Prospect engagement with sales content, measured by data points like time on each page of a PDF or interaction with pages and videos, is a leading indicator of how likely an account is to close. Unfortunately, many revenue teams have no way of measuring prospect engagement with sales content, and the teams that do, typically measure individual buyer touch points without any aggregation. Enablix’s latest release solves this problem in a new way: Account-Based Engagement Insights integrates with user’s CRM systems and aggregates all sales and marketing engagement activities from every member in a target account into a singular set of reports. This provides sales teams with a view of their pipeline informed by real prospect engagement across nearly every touchpoint - giving teams the ability to identify deals likely to close and those that need more nurture. “Sales and marketing teams that don’t measure how prospects are engaging with sales content are effectively working in the dark,” said Nick Ziech-Lopez, CMO at Enablix. “Sales and marketing teams that don’t measure how prospects are engaging with sales content are effectively working in the dark,” said Nick Ziech-Lopez, CMO at Enablix. “By collecting every prospect touchpoint and putting the data directly into the CRM, Account-Based Engagement Analytics gives revenue-facing teams a single place to see all prospect activity and better target their outbound efforts.” By directly integrating with Hubspot and Salesforce CRMs, Enablix accelerates both the top and bottom of the sales pipeline. For top of funnel activities, powerful engagement-based intent data is layered on top of target accounts in the pipeline to inform the sales and marketing team which accounts deserve more personalized follow-ups further in the cadence. For bottom of the funnel activities, Enablix now gives sales teams new insights into how prospects are engaging with sales content, allowing reps to “predict the future” and identify which deals are likely to close. New features and capabilities accompanying the summer 2022 release also include: Native Presentation Creation through Google Slides: Build creative and compelling presentations through Google Docs Or Microsoft Office 365 directly within the platform, saving time and keeping all presentations on brand Account-Specific Content Filtering: Manage customers and target accounts better through an interactive heatmap, showing which accounts have specific pieces of content Youtube Channel Integration: Automatically import, tag, and share, all videos and content from users’ Youtube accounts The summer release is generally available for all Enablix customers, and Account-Based Engagement is available for users with a Hubspot or Salesforce CRM integration.

New RollWorks Survey Confirms Marketers Rely on Account-Based Marketing to Drive Pipeline and Revenue Goals

RollWorks | October 03, 2022

Account-based marketing platform RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, today announced the results of a six-month survey designed to gauge ongoing B2B marketer priorities and challenges. The new study reveals that marketers overwhelmingly rely on ABM to increase ROI and achieve pipeline and revenue goals. "Marketers are accepting that ABM is an efficient, effective marketing strategy that focuses on engaging the right accounts at the right time, through a variety of marketing channels. The success of the market isn't determined by the few who agree on one definition, but rather a focus on ABM's very clear value of helping to create the most efficient sales strategy that drives growth at scale," said Darragh Fitzpatrick, CRO of RollWorks. "Marketers are accepting that ABM is an efficient, effective marketing strategy that focuses on engaging the right accounts at the right time, through a variety of marketing channels." said Darragh Fitzpatrick, CRO of RollWorks. Critical Role of ABM in Key Initiatives + Challenges B2B marketers indicated a growing dependency on ABM to help support key initiatives. Survey respondents overwhelmingly said that they are turning to ABM to help increase ROI and achieve pipeline and revenue goals (72%), followed by supporting faster sales cycles (53%), as well as faster growth and bridging the communications gap between marketing and sales (48% respectively). And yet, nearly half of those polled said providing customized and relevant ad experiences to the right people on the sites they spend time on (44%), reaching the right targets on the sites they spend time on (43%), and scaling ABM programs (42%) have been the top challenges when implementing their ABM strategy. Hyper Focus on Understanding Intent from In-Market Accounts Many B2B organizations are realizing that ABM means efficiency and precision can coexist. Survey respondents indicated that their top two priorities are intent, or understanding what accounts are in-market to buy a solution like theirs, even if they haven't heard of the solution (48%), and ads and other forms of ABM engagement (40%). Doubling Down on Digital and Webinars Throughout the past six months of the survey, respondents have said that they are increasingly investing in digital advertising and webinars, with nearly 80% of respondents doubling down on digital advertising and 43% investing in webinars. Interestingly, only 18% (25% fewer than webinars) said they are investing in virtual events. Respondents have increasingly adopted HubSpot over the past six months, with two-thirds of respondents indicating HubSpot is their primary CRM. RollWorks' integration with HubSpot provides marketers with easy-to-use, end-to-end solutions to drive their account-based strategies by enabling teams of all sizes to identify high-fit, high-intent accounts and buyers, reach them efficiently, and measure impact. The integration, which has given the majority of go-to-market teams consolidated account-level visibility, is a powerful illustration of ABM and CRM working together to deliver deep insights for revenue teams of all sizes. The survey, conducted March through September 2022, consulted approximately 200 B2B marketing and sales professionals. 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. By empowering teams to identify their target accounts and key buyers, reach those accounts across multiple channels, and measure program effectiveness in their system-of-record, RollWorks is an indispensable platform for marketers and sellers who believe that an account-based approach is just good business.
