6sense integrates with LinkedIn to Facilitate B2B Marketing with Better Targeting & Bigger Engagement

6sense | May 22, 2020

  • 6sense Segments for LinkedIn ads equips revenue teams with advanced 6sense account targeting for LinkedIn advertising.

  • 6sense’s dynamic segments can be synced to LinkedIn Campaign Manager to optimize ad targeting and spend on relevant audiences.

  • 6sense Segments for LinkedIn ads expands on 6sense’s native account-based display advertising capabilities that enable marketers to target and reach dynamic account segments.


6sense, the leading account engagement platform, announced a new integration with LinkedIn, the world’s largest online professional network, to enable mutual customers to leverage 6sense’s account data and insights for LinkedIn ads. 6sense’s dynamic segments can be synced to LinkedIn Campaign Manager to optimize ad targeting and spend on relevant audiences.

One of the biggest challenges for marketers today is focusing multi-channel advertising efforts on the most valuable accounts. Marketers typically must build different audiences in separate advertising platforms, and those audiences may not be consistent—and may not align to the most valuable accounts. With 6sense, customers can create dynamic segments that automatically sync across channels like LinkedIn to reach ideal-fit B2B buyers throughout the purchase journey.

6sense Segments for LinkedIn ads expands on 6sense’s native account-based display advertising capabilities that enable marketers to target and reach dynamic account segments, like which accounts meet their ideal customer profile (ICP) and are in-market to buy but have not yet visited the website. Once 6sense segments are synced with LinkedIn Campaign Manager, customers can leverage 6sense’s account data and insights for all LinkedIn ad types including Sponsored Content, Sponsored Messaging, Text Ads, and Dynamic Ads.

Over the past two years we’ve expanded our comprehensive display advertising capabilities with features like dynamic display and external media tracking, and integrating with LinkedIn was a natural next step

~ Viral Bajaria, CTO and Co-Founder of 6sense


“Joint customers can now leverage the dynamic segmentation capabilities of 6sense to reach the right audiences on the global LinkedIn network.”

Customers looking to broaden their reach in the EU will see significant benefit from the combination of 6sense’s native display and LinkedIn’s advertising capabilities.

One of the key ingredients of successful marketing campaigns is the ability to execute and adapt quickly

~ Tim Frank, Sr. Director of Demand Gen, Domo


“6sense’s integration with LinkedIn campaigns gives us an added level of agility. As we update our CRM data and target segments, 6sense updates LinkedIn audiences automatically. The integration provides more accurate targeting and reduces the need for manual list uploads.”

Invoca Raises $83M Series F Financing, Increases Valuation to $1.1B, and Exceeds $100M Run-Rate Revenue

Invoca, Silver Lake Waterman | June 20, 2022

Invoca, the cloud leader in AI-powered conversation intelligence for revenue teams, today announced an $83 million Series F equity financing at a valuation of $1.1 billion. The new capital brings the company's total equity financing to $184 million. Silver Lake Waterman led the round with additional new investments from Hollyport Capital, Kingfisher Investment Advisors, and Fenwick & West, along with participation from existing investors Upfront Ventures, Accel, H.I.G. Capital, and Industry Ventures. This investment comes after a year of record growth, with Invoca surpassing $100M in run-rate revenue. Customer Conversations are the New "Make or Break" Moments for Brands Digital transformation has enabled consumers to complete simple transactions, such as checking a balance or making a basic purchase, through a brand's website or mobile app. But the most critical, high-stakes sales and service interactions are still handled through live conversations with contact center agents. These escalations to human channels represent "make or break" moments in the customer experience. But brands, who cannot seamlessly connect these digital journeys with high-impact conversations, are struggling to meet the heightened expectations of consumers. "When consumers look for value-added expertise in buying the right product or resolving an urgent service issue, they often escalate from digital self-service to speak with a human expert," said Gregg Johnson, CEO of Invoca. "At Invoca, we're using data, automation, and AI to integrate these digital journeys with conversations in the contact center, helping brands deliver a delightful experience, drive revenue, and strengthen customer relationships. We are thrilled to partner with new and existing investors as we innovate in the rapidly expanding market for conversational AI." Invoca is the Market Leader in AI-powered Conversation Intelligence Invoca serves the leading consumer brands in considered purchase industries like automotive, telecommunications, healthcare, financial services, and real estate. Customers include AutoNation, Banner Health, DIRECTV, ORKIN, Rogers Communications, Mayo Clinics, and University Hospitals. The company was also named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Conversation Intelligence: Sales And Marketing, Q4 2021 report, with the highest scores possible in the criteria of product and technology innovation road map, product ease of use, integrations, and market approach and performance. Invoca, which employs nearly 400 employees, was also named an Inc. 2022 Best Workplaces Award Winner for the fifth consecutive year. "We believe Invoca has an exceptional vision to help marketing and contact center teams transform the customer experience with AI-powered conversation intelligence," said Shawn O'Neill, Managing Director and Group Head, Silver Lake Waterman. "The company has built a market-leading product serving an impressive roster of blue-chip customers. And the Invoca team has been focused on achieving the operational rigor and disciplined execution that it takes to thrive in today's market and beyond. We look forward to partnering with Invoca in their next stage of growth." Investing in Technology Innovation and Expanded Go-to-Market Distribution With the Series F proceeds, Invoca will invest in several key areas. The company will accelerate product innovation through organic development and acquisitions, especially given the success of the DialogTech transaction in May 2021. Invoca recently introduced solutions for contact center teams, such as automated quality management, agent coaching and performance, call routing, and conversational IVR, and will increase technology investments in these areas. Simultaneously, the company will invest in expanding partnerships and distribution relationships in the contact center ecosystem. Invoca is a long-time partner of Five9 and integrates with several other leading contact center platforms. The company will also expand the channel partner program introduced earlier this year. Finally, Invoca will broaden its geographic coverage beyond the United States and Canada to support customers in Europe, Mexico, and South America.

With New Sales Insights Solution, RollWorks Helps HubSpot® Users Turn Marketing Customization into More Powerful Sales Impact

RollWorks | June 29, 2022

Account-based marketing platform RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, today furthered its commitment to adding more utility for HubSpot users. Sales Insights for HubSpot is a new ABM tool that uses data science to uncover account engagement signals that help B2B marketers and sales teams drive and prioritize opportunities. B2B sales and marketing teams want to know who is researching and engaging with their brand; by not having this information, aligning marketing programs with sales action is a huge challenge. 58% of B2B teams say they are not at all or only somewhat confident in their organization's ability to accurately deliver an inbound lead from a marketing program to the right salesperson. And 43% of marketers say one of their biggest database issues is that data is siloed, with another 40% claiming not enough data on current customers. RollWorks Sales Insights for HubSpot solves these issues by using data science to provide a 360-degree view of accounts throughout the buying journey, helping teams eliminate the guesswork and create more timely and efficient sales outreach. "There's a difference between 'pipeline' and 'pipedream.' I prefer the former," said Shawn Cook, VP of Sales at RollWorks. "There's a difference between 'pipeline' and 'pipedream.' I prefer the former," said Shawn Cook, VP of Sales at RollWorks. "When my sales teams know who and what content a prospect is engaging with, they can take on the role of trusted advisor and advance the conversations with the accounts that are likely to buy from us. Sales needs to not only know what the content is but also why that piece of content was created. This is where the alignment is magnified." Sales Insights for HubSpot: Account Spike + More One unique feature of Sales Insights for HubSpot is Account Spike, which uses a data science model to flag accounts spiking in engagement compared to that account's engagement baseline. Sales Insights then visualizes these spiking accounts and contacts insights within HubSpot. By uncovering signals of an account's engagement with a company's website and ads, Account Spike can help sales teams prioritize accounts for outreach and trigger marketing programs. Additional features and benefits of Sales Insights for HubSpot: De-anonymize existing HubSpot CRM contacts and surface engagement spike details that allow sales reps to personalize outreach. Automate email alerts to sales teams when accounts are spiking in engagement. Identify accounts that are spiking in engagement but not assigned to allow sales managers to route accounts to sales reps for follow up. Provide engagement spike data so marketers can analyze what actions are leading to engagement surges to optimize their ABM strategy. Build workflows to nurture engaged accounts off of engagement spike data. "RollWorks' Sales Insights for HubSpot solution is a game changer for our business. Our website attracts thousands of visitors daily, and not all of them sign up to try the app, which is why the daily spiking activities feature is incredibly valuable," said Vinh Pham, Senior Demand Generation Manager for When I Work. "Not only does it enable us to see who is checking out our site, but also lets the seller know when the prospect has enough activities to trigger a spike signal and notify sellers the next day so they can start their outbound sequences." "I'm incredibly excited about today's news as RollWorks continues to invest in our solutions as a HubSpot App partner for mutual customers looking to bring ABM excellence to their inbound strategies. We've proven the power of HubSpot's foundational inbound marketing with RollWorks' highly-targeted ABM capabilities," said Mike Stocker, VP of Partnerships at RollWorks. "Now, with Sales Insights for HubSpot, marketing and sales can be in lock step as they prioritize and personalize their programs and outreach to optimize their ABM strategy." The launch of Sales Insights for HubSpot further strengthens the partnership between RollWorks and the CRM platform for scaling companies. In April, RollWorks surpassed 500 installs of its HubSpot integration in the HubSpot App Marketplace, marking 150% more than the nearest ABM competitor. This September, look for RollWorks at HubSpot INBOUND® 22 in Boston. Visit www.rollworks.com to learn more about how Sales Insights for HubSpot can drive more value for your ABM programs. 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.
