Demandbase Personalization Enhances the Account-Based Experience (ABX) Factor

Demandbase | March 31, 2021

Demandbase, the pioneer and industry leader in account-based go-to-market, today announced significant improvements to its Personalization product. Demandbase is doubling down on its promise to help companies build the best experiences at the right stage for their target accounts after unveiling Account-Based Experience (ABX) as the future of Account-Based Marketing (ABM) earlier this month. Site Customization and Forms Enrichment are two new and extended features that will be launched, each of which will deepen personalization and improve conversion rates.

"At every point of the buying cycle, ABX is embedded in an intense emphasis on the customer, utilizing intelligent insights to know when and how to communicate, and what to say to each account," says Jon Miller, Demandbase's chief marketing and product officer. " Your website is one of the most important interactions a client or prospect can have with your company, the website experience must be as personalized as email or other channels. Our new Demandbase Personalization features make it simple to offer the best website experience and elevate the entire journey."

The feature enhancements to the Demandbase Personalization product include:
Site Customization — Go-to-market teams can now improve website conversion rates by creating exclusive site interactions for their target accounts, which can be improved with more granular segmentation using Demandbase's dynamic list selectors and a more responsive user interface. It's now simpler than ever to share new personalized experiences with a shareable preview page, ensuring that all stakeholders have access to it. Customers may also target the same account list with personalized advertising and landing page experiences that are specific to their point in the purchasing process.

Forms Enrichment — Demandbase users have everything they need to create custom online forms with a small number of fields while collecting more accurate information about the user. This enables teams to enhance the website experience for prospects while also increasing web form conversion rates.

"I was not surprised to learn recently that 98% of marketers believe personalization strengthens consumer relationships," says Seth Myers, vice president of product at Demandbase. "Furthermore, Gartner predicts that smart personalization engines used to identify customer intent would help digital businesses to increase profits by up to 25% by 2023. Personalization is taking centre stage in the industry today, according to figures like these and other B2B patterns. This strengthens the case for our upgraded Personalization product and its industry-leading capabilities, which treat personalization as seriously as it can. We are bound and willing to continue anticipating what our users want and need to elevate ABX."

After its introduction in November 2020, Demandbase has seen increased consumer acceptance of Demandbase One, which is the best account-based platform for identifying, engaging, and closing the accounts that matter.

Ronn Torossian, 5WPR CEO Predicts B2B Marketing Trends in 2022

5W Public Relations | January 11, 2022

Ronn Torossian, CEO of 5WPR predicts leading 2022 B2B trends. Torossian says it's safe to assume that most of the marketing approaches that B2B companies adopted throughout the pandemic are going to continue to influence campaign measurements. While those companies must adjust for any changing circumstances and adapt their strategies, things aren't going to go back to the way they were before the pandemic. Tech Stacks One of the biggest marketing transformations in the last decade for B2B businesses has been the increase in marketing technologies. In the last decade, there have emerged over 8,000 different marketing tech solutions available to B2B companies. Although plenty of businesses had to cut their marketing budgets at the start of the pandemic to adjust to economic uncertainty, that shifted in 2021 with more companies investing in marketing tech. It's likely that this trend is going to continue, but B2B businesses will also be looking for ways to simplify their marketing tech stacks. That way, they'll be able to cut down their tech solutions to more manageable levels. Some of the biggest trends in B2B tech are going to be digital outreach for lead generation, measurement solutions that will allow businesses to compare campaign performances, and smaller, in-person events. More Insights When the pandemic made in-person events impractical, B2B companies turned to digital outreach and ways to measure digital engagement, such as downloads, form completions, and clicks. However, in the coming year, companies will want to go beyond simple engagement data to truly figure out the way that downloads, form completions or clicks, influence sales. More specifically, businesses will look for ways to understand precisely how those engagements are reflected in the buying journey of consumers, as well as in their revenue. That's why in the next year, companies will be looking for more clarity and at different tools that can provide the aforementioned information. By using more insights, companies will have a better opportunity at figuring out which channels and programs are driving revenue, which at the end of the day, matters the most. Account-Based Marketing Overall, marketing campaigns are all about personalization. However, companies in the B2B industry have a big challenge when it comes to creating highly targeted content and messaging. That's mainly because the buying journey is typically a lot longer, and the outreach is more complex. A few years ago, B2B companies used account-based marketing to provide more personalization in their campaigns, and to ensure that the right consumers received the right messages. However, the strategy was only useful for well-defined, small audiences, and wasn't intended for big campaigns. Fortunately, these days, companies have the technology to increase the scale of account-based marketing efforts by using different data points that can personalize their campaigns. That's why in the coming months, those types of strategies are going to evolve while more businesses take advantage of their capabilities and provide more targeted campaigns. Ronn Torossian is one of America's most well-respected public relations experts.
