Bombora’s Thought Leadership Addresses the Changing Dynamics of B2B

Bombora | July 27, 2022 | Read time : 04:00 min

Changing Dynamics of B2B
Bombora, the leading provider of B2B Intent data solutions, continues to guide B2B marketing and sales teams as they navigate changing ecosystem dynamics.

Mike Burton, co-founder and SVP data sales of Bombora, takes to the pages of the Forbes Technology Council to highlight two areas where B2B marketing and sales leaders may adjust their approach: revenue operations and buyer-led account based marketing (BLAM).

How The Pandemic Elevated The Importance Of Revenue Operations looks at how B2B enterprises have reached the point where a new, pandemic-influenced sales process touches every component of a business. Many companies are now asking a very big question: Who, exactly, is responsible for revenue within the company? In some operations, it falls to the CMO; in others, it’s in the CRO’s purview. Still other companies have created titles like Chief Growth Officer or Chief Commercial Officer. Board rooms are struggling to find the answer.

In How To Put More Pop Into Your ABM Strategy With BLAM, Burton advises on improving account-based marketing (ABM) strategies. Marketers looking to take the next step must lean into the buyer journey and learn where to focus their marketing and sales efforts. This "buyer-led" account-based marketing, or BLAM, has the potential to give ABM a kick in the pants and really super-charge marketing efforts.

Burton is also the host of The Intent Data Exchange, Bombora’s podcast for sales, marketing, publishing, and data professionals seeking the latest insights and perspectives from the across B2B ecosystem. Each episode features a conversation with a sales and marketing leader who has been on the cutting edge of using data to deliver a sustainable go-to-market strategy. Initial guests include industry experts from Siemens, SAP, Cision, and Just Global.

Bombora’s Company Surge® data tells marketing and sales leaders which businesses are researching the products or services that they and their competitors sell. With this understanding, sales and marketing teams can be more relevant and consistent and improve performance across all activities.

AdDaptive Intelligence Launches New Website and Logo

AdDaptive Intelligence | September 30, 2022

This week, AdDaptive Intelligence, the leading provider of account-based advertising and analytics, has released a new logo and website. "We started by exploring our business strategy, internal strengths, and market opportunities," explained Laura Goldstone, senior director of communications and branding strategy at AdDaptive. "Then we crafted messaging and designs that conveyed our differentiators most effectively. Strategic planning and cohesion throughout enabled a full brand refresh that spans all of our content, building on and elevating our voice and presence in the market." The new design's elements include: The gradient represents movement, adaptability, and depth as well as sleekness and tech-savviness. The logomark matches the A in AdDaptive. Its shape conveys AdDaptive's emphasis on analytics and success by representing a bar chart growing from left to right. When rotated, it can also resemble a marketing funnel, representing AdDaptive's ability to move key accounts toward clients' KPIs. The tagline informs audiences that they will achieve Smarter B2B Advertising by working with AdDaptive. "The ultimate goal of this project was to elevate our visual identity and tell an authentic story that embodies who AdDaptive is, what we do, and where we excel," said Alexandra Singer, senior graphic designer at AdDaptive. "Every decision in this process was intentional and strategic and done with our mission and vision in mind." While designing their new logo in-house, AdDaptive concurrently worked on a new website that would showcase this new design while also conveying their brand's narrative in a more compelling and data-driven manner. AdDaptive worked with web design agency Bop Design to produce a sleek, optimized, and organized website that conveys AdDaptive's value proposition clearly and thoroughly and provides intuitive navigation and flow. "We're excited that our new site leads with transparent, comprehensive account-based analytics, which is a main differentiator for AdDaptive," said co-founder Patrick Shea. "We're excited that our new site leads with transparent, comprehensive account-based analytics, which is a main differentiator for AdDaptive," said co-founder Patrick Shea. Co-founder Kevin O'Malley added, "Beyond the unique reporting we provide, our new site dives into how to use those insights strategically and how to ensure your campaigns are set up to yield successful results across marketing, sales, and overall business goals. We're excited for our website to walk through the customer journey step by step and hope this new layout provides a positive experience for all visitors." AdDaptive's customer journey as laid out on the new site is cyclical, starting with audience discovery either in the form of an ABM list or custom-built firmographic segments; leading into media activation and campaign deployment either through AdDaptive's curated deals offering or through AdDaptive's accounts management team; feeding into transparent insights in various analytics reports (namely Campaign Analytics and Site Analytics). But it doesn't stop there: AdDaptive's team then acts as strategic consultants, coaching agencies and brands on how to make analytics reports actionable. AdDaptive's team works with its customers to make effective advertising decisions by exploring the insights in previous campaigns' analytics reports and refining their target audience, KPIs, and budget in subsequent campaigns, thus feeding into the cycle for long-term success. "Storytelling is at the heart of how we connect with our customers on a human level," Goldstone went on to say. "While we lead with our insightful analytics and technological capabilities, the way we convey the power and value of those solutions is through stories - stories about the customer, internal teams, and the market. And when stories are supported by strong design, trust among customers increases exponentially and builds a virtuous cycle with tremendous upside." Readers can view the new website and logo at www.addaptive.com. About AdDaptive: AdDaptive Intelligence is the leading provider of Account-Based Advertising and Analytics. Deploying display, native, video, CTV, and audio campaigns for B2B audiences, AdDaptive's proprietary technology bridges offline and online data, optimizes ad campaigns, and provides transparent B2B analytics to help clients reach the accounts that matter most.
