Contentgine Announces the Release of "Target Lists, Categories, and Case Study Titles: 3 Surprising Results from a Contentgine Data Science Analysis"

Contentgine | January 24, 2022

Contentgine® (www.contentgine.com), the world leader in content-based marketing, announced today that it has released an analysis of the target account lists (TAL's) utilized by a sample set of customers, and that analysis has yielded three surprising results.

Specifically, the company's chief data scientist, Ben Luck, ran a series of trials utilizing Contentgine's TAL's to supplement the TAL's supplied by three customers: a cloud communications company, a financial ERP company, and a digital signature company.

Luck said he was not surprised by the first result, that the Contentgine TAL's improved the clients' TAL's by creating a ten to twenty times' larger engagement. What surprised him was that the Contentgine dataset also showed that clients were missing market segments where they didn't think they could compete, and that the way they titled their case studies and email messages had a direct effect on whether a prospect would engage.

"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 said his analysis is ongoing, and he expects to uncover more improvements for Contentgine clients in the near future. The analysis can be read at the Contentgine.com website, under the 'Articles' tab.

TARGETED ACCOUNT STRATEGY

96% of B2B Marketers Have A Documented Account-Based Marketing Strategy In Place

Foundry | October 28, 2022

Foundry (an IDG, Inc. company), the global leader in media, martech and data for the tech community, today released its second annual 2022 ABM & Intent Benchmarking Study which dives deep into the workings of account-based marketing (ABM) and its evolution and adoption compared to traditional marketing approaches. The study also looks at how intent data is used to fuel ABM programs, and the success and challenges marketers see with intent. ABM is a strategy where marketing and sales teams collaborate to create personalized buying experiences for a mutually identified set of high-value accounts. It has gained popularity over traditional marketing approaches – Foundry found that 96% of marketers have a documented ABM strategy. In addition, they study shows that 94% rate ABM as extremely or very important to their overall marketing objectives, and 84% feel their ABM efforts have been either extremely or very successful. “We conducted this study with the hopes of gaining a better understanding of the evolution and adoption of account-based marketing, including how it compares to traditional marketing approaches in the eyes of marketers,” said Stacey Raap, Marketing and Research Manager at Foundry. “We conducted this study with the hopes of gaining a better understanding of the evolution and adoption of account-based marketing, including how it compares to traditional marketing approaches in the eyes of marketers,” said Stacey Raap, Marketing and Research Manager at Foundry. “In addition, we thought it would be useful and relevant to examine the uses, successes and challenges that marketers are seeing when it comes to intent data, given its critical role within ABM.” Here is a closer look at the survey’s findings: Why are companies using account-based marketing? Organizations have many reasons for adopting ABM programs as there are a variety of business objectives driving these ABM investments. According to the study, some of the goals expected to drive future ABM investments include new account acquisition (69%), improving win-rates (63%), upsell and cross-sell to existing customers (61%) and accelerating pipeline (59%). To achieve these goals, marketers are utilizing different tactics within ABM, including content marketing (63%), paid digital advertising (61%), organic social media (57%) and SEO (46%). When it comes to measuring the effectiveness of their ABM programs, 60% focused on deal size, while 59% looked at content engagement length. Other measurements of success include: deal close rate (56%), influenced pipeline (51%) and pipeline velocity (46%). A significant 87% of respondents said their ABM investment increased over the past 12 months, with the majority saying their budget increased by 26-50% (38%). This shows that companies are taking ABM more seriously and find it a worthwhile investment. “According to our research, most organizations have in place a documented account-based marketing strategy and have been running such programs for at least a year now,” said Raap. “The results found that ABM is in place to become a mainstream marketing discipline that could even take the place of traditional methods moving forward.” In addition, ABM’s focus on collaboration may help strengthen the dynamic between marketing and sales teams. Foundry’s research found that 76% of marketers believe sales and marketing alignment at their company is strong, a figure that was consistent with last year’s research. Intent data is critical for ABM campaigns The study also looked at marketers’ use of intent data, which is information collected about web content consumption that provides insights into buyers’ interests. The study found that 91% of marketers use intent data to identify which content should be served within ABM campaigns. In addition, 95% of marketers use more than one intent data source, 41% use four or more, and 90% are increasing their number of data sources. One of the major attractions of intent-based marketing is its measurability since outcomes can be tied directly to observed behavior. Ninety-five percent of marketers said they can track the ROI specific to their intent-based programs. Further, 93% said they use it across more than one channel and 92% said they’re confident in the validity of their data sources. Potential challenges ABM marketers face While the benefits are plentiful, there still remain some challenges within ABM. Eighty-one percent of marketers said that quantifying ABM program results is one of their biggest challenges. Some other obstacles cited in the study include prioritizing accounts (46%), gaining C-level involvement (34%), engaging target accounts (32%), acquiring opt-in contacts (31%) and creating a target account list (30%). When it comes to using intent data in ABM campaigns, Foundry found that marketers struggle with efficiently converting data to insights (62%) and verifying validity of intent signals/insights (61%). The survey also found that measuring the impact of intent data (55%), creating a strategy (55%) and acting on intent signals/insights (23%) were among the biggest challenges. About 2022 Foundry ABM & Intent Benchmarking Study Foundry’s 2022 ABM & Intent Benchmarking Study was conducted among the audience of 500 B2B tech marketers. Foundry conducted this survey to understand the workings of account-based marketing (ABM) and its evolution and adoption compared to traditional marketing approaches. This year the study also looks at how intent data is used to fuel ABM programs, and the success and challenges marketers see with intent.
