For B2B marketers, NetLine introduces their unrivalled lead management platform

NetLine Corporation | July 12, 2021

NetLine Corporation, the world's leading provider of first-party sourced buyer-level intent data, today announced the launch of its Lead Management Platform, a SaaS solution that provides B2B marketers with centralised lead capture, qualification, routing, analytics, and companion content amplification campaign capabilities through a single, easy-to-use and self-service interface.

Until now, NetLine's Lead Management Platform was only available to a select group of tier 1 B2B media companies to enable their gated content and first-party data gathering experiences. Starting today, the Platform will assist B2B Marketers in converting their existing traffic into revenue-based outcomes by combining lead capture, lead management, and content amplification initiatives into a single solution, supporting NetLine's mission of democratising lead generation for all.

While this is a new offering for B2B marketers, it is a tried-and-true solution that media firms have used to boost conversions and produce richer first-party data to speed up sales conversations. The following are some of the key characteristics and highlights:
  • Unified and Predictive Login: Over 70% of viewers are instantly recognised and given the option of a zero-typing or enriched (reduced typing) experience. Most users will only need to fill out 5-7 fields, which is a 60% reduction in typing time when compared to standard and non-predictive forms.
  • Content Format Agnostic: A single format that may be used for all types of gated content, including webinars and virtual experiences. Simplify and combine all legacy form solutions into a single audience experience and, more crucially, a single data structure with considerably more detailed user profiles.
  • Customizable: The platform offers a plan for any need, from basic themes to fully white-labeled user experiences that mimic the exact site template.
  • Advanced Reporting Capabilities: Campaign reports that are updated in real time and interactively provide information on campaign performance, content resonance, and persona interaction. Interactive visualisation features such as dynamic pivot tables, heatmaps, and custom setups provide a new degree of transparency into content consumption behaviour, allowing campaign performance to be improved more quickly.
  • Real Time Connectors: Marketers can utilise thousands of third-party connectivity possibilities in minutes, including straightforward, ready-to-use interfaces with Salesforce, HubSpot, and Marketo, to ensure that leads created by their content join the nurture path and/or sales cycle effortlessly.
  • On Demand Scale: With no IOs, no discussions, and no phone conversations, Marketers can tap into incremental scale and amplify their content to reach the target audiences of their choice — and within their own unique budgets, owing to open auction CPL pricing — in minutes. Simply convert your native campaign, set a budget, and you'll get instant access to the web's largest amount of content-produced B2B buyer-level data, with over 700,000 first-party leads generated each month across more than 300 sectors.
  • Flexible Plans for Every Marketer: NetLine was created with democratisation in mind, and offers plans ranging from free to $199 per month, depending on the marketer's demands.
"Until now, B2B marketers needed at least a handful of technologies to run their lead gen programmes: software to capture, enrich, scrub, filter, fulfil, and report within their own sites, as well as an entirely different suite of vendors to amplify their content beyond the reach of their inbound forms," said David Fortino, NetLine's Chief Strategy Officer. "B2B marketers can now do it all with a single self-service interface."

“Whether they want to consolidate lead gathering or establish a centre for qualifying, routing, analytics, and companion content amplification campaigns, the platform can handle it all, allowing B2B marketers to cut expenses while increasing efficiency.”

Robert Alvin, NetLine's CEO and founder, expressed his excitement for what the Lead Generation Platform might provide B2B marketers. "At a time when accelerating first-party data gathering is mission-critical for Marketers, we're happy to offer a platform that is not only focused on making this accessible for Marketers, but also proud to be giving excellent value at a competitive pricing point,".

NetLine Corporation provides B2B Marketers with the reach, technology, and knowledge they need to achieve scalable lead generation and sales funnel acceleration.

Outage Costs Facebook Roughly $60 Million

Facebook | October 05, 2021

On Monday, billions of people worldwide experienced the largest outage with Facebook and its family of applications (WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, Oculus VR). Ultimately, the world’s most vital communication platforms went off the map for around six hours and it (again) unveiled how much the world depends on a single company. The outage started before noon (EST). According to Facebook, severe configuration and networking issues caused this outage and didn’t affect any user data. However, the impact of this downtime was nasty and far-reaching for small businesses, companies that rely on these services, and the company CEO, Mark Zuckerberg himself (firm’s stocks dropped by nearly five percent). Zuckerberg issued his first response on Tuesday saying he was sorry for the disruption and he knows how much the users depend on Facebook’s services. The company’s CTO also took to his Twitter account to share his views on this unfortunate event. Sincere apologies to everyone impacted by outages of Facebook-powered services right now. We are experiencing networking issues and teams are working as fast as possible to debug and restore as fast as possible. - Mike Schroepfer, Facebook Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Facebook employees eventually got access to their Santa Clara-based servers and restored the services. Although the recovery was slow, the company's subject matter experts stated that all the Facebook-powered services are now back up and running.

Conversica's Conversations Now Enhanced with 6sense Account Insights, Spurring Greater Account Engagement for ABM Customers

Conversica | May 04, 2022

Conversica, Inc., the leading provider of Conversational AI solutions for enterprise revenue teams, announces a new Conversational Account-Based Marketing (ABM) integration with 6sense, a leading platform for B2B organizations generating predictable revenue. The integration, which builds on the growing success of the Conversational ABM product launched in November 2021, enables Conversica AI Assistants to tap into the rich account and intent data from 6sense to identify whom to target and tailor two-way, humanlike conversations with the level of personalization required to scale any healthy ABM program. ABM platforms like 6sense provide crucial insights to tailor communications with contacts at target accounts. Conversica takes those insights and turns them into action. Less than half of salespeople and marketers are able to put the intent data from their ABM platform to work in their communications, leading to unrealized value of their ABM investments. Conversica’s new integration with 6sense enables companies to automatically apply that data to deeply relevant, 1:1 conversations across their target account list and, thus, maximizing the results of their ABM approach at scale. Mark Jancola, Chief Development Officer, Conversica, said, “We’re ultimately helping companies to reap the full value of their ABM investments." Mark Jancola, Chief Development Officer, Conversica, said, “We’re ultimately helping companies to reap the full value of their ABM investments. ABM vendors provide a wealth of information that marketing and sales (and eventually customer success) teams want to use to personalize communications, but are unfortunately unable to do so due to bandwidth limitations. By bringing our two solutions together, we’re able to action these insights at scale, provide contacts with the most relevant message and turn interest into direct sales conversations that would otherwise be impossible without a digital team member.” Conversica’s ABM conversations are custom-designed to personalize messaging with the most applicable testimonials, pain points, and use cases. With the 6sense integration, contacts are now automatically routed to the most relevant conversation based on industry, persona, and buying stage. The dialog is then further personalized based on contact details from 6sense, making it easy to create and maintain the many variations associated with a hypersegmented ABM account list. Numerous early adopters of Conversica’s Conversational ABM solution are seeing tremendous results, including customers like ATS Dealers and Trifacta. “Out of the 15 to 20 Conversica conversations that we run, ABM Outreach has very quickly become our most-used skill,” said Josh Copp, Managing Partner at ATS Dealers, a full-service reseller of premium data software and marketing solutions. “I really appreciate the flexibility of the messaging. We can have conversations with prospects that lead with the customer’s pain point and clearly show how ATS can help them solve it. The ability to map our solution to a unique business problem in our outreach is essential, especially as we expand into new industries.” "What's exciting to us about the ABM Outreach skill is the ability to match specific pain points—whether it be by persona, title, or industry—with a tailored value statement increasing the relevance to the contact. The impact of these added variables, in the ICP Outreach conversation, has led to an engagement and hot lead rate +10% higher than our standard Conversica conversations," said the Director of Demand Generation at Trifacta, an open cloud platform for data engineers and analysts.

"Our success this past year is a direct reflection of the remarkable revenue growth and business impact our customers report from using 6sense," said Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense.

"We have a responsibility to our customers, partners, and each other to deliver on our bold vision to transform the way B2B revenue teams go-to-market with data, insights, and orchestration capabilities at the core. I'm incredibly proud of this team and the passion that each person brings to creating value for our customers." Reaches Valuation of $5.2 Billion 6sense closed on two rounds of funding in FY2022. In March 2021, the company closed its Series D funding round of $125 million, with D1 Capital Partners being the lead investor with participation from Sapphire Ventures, Tiger Global, and the company's existing investor, Insight Partners. In January 2022, the company announced it had closed $200 million in a Series E funding round, more than doubling the company's valuation to $5.2 billion. This round was co-led by new investors Blue Owl and MSD Partners and included the addition of investors SoftBank Vision Fund 2, B Capital Group, Franklin Templeton, and Harmony Partners. Existing investors Insight Partners, Tiger Global, D1 Capital Partners, and Sapphire Ventures also participated. Acquisitions Showcase Industry Leadership To reaffirm the company's commitment to lead the RevTech revolution, 6sense made three significant acquisitions. The first was AI-based revenue intelligence platform Fortella, which, with the 6sense platform, adds essential pipeline planning, forecasting, and measurement capabilities to further empower B2B marketing leaders to achieve their pipeline and revenue goals with greater predictability. 6sense also acquired Slintel, the leading provider of business-driven technographic data, buyer and market insights, and modern business contact data. This acquisition positioned the company to provide the most comprehensive B2B buyer intelligence and AI-powered insights available in the market. And finally, most recently, the company acquired AI-driven email marketing platform Saleswhale, extending the engagement channels available in the 6sense platform. Platform Enhancements and Expanded Ecosystem In early 2021, 6sense leaders committed to accelerating their already aggressive product roadmap, executed against their vision, and have delivered significant value to customers through several product, platform, and partner enhancements: Funnel Insights Reporting allows marketers to assess the health of their revenue generation funnel, with the ability to drill down into each funnel stage to diagnose performance gaps and identify the most effective activities leading to revenue growth. The new Recommended Actions Dashboard elevates immediate, impactful actions for sales teams to take, reasons to take them, and makes it easy to do so with a couple of clicks saving hours of manual research and removing the guesswork for sales teams. Slintel has been added as a technographic and contact data provider within the 6sense platform. The AI combines various sources to identify the unique digital signatures of technologies companies use, allowing Slintel to produce exceptionally accurate and deep technographic profiles. 6sense customers can now leverage this data in segment filters to indicate the "Technology Used" at target accounts. The addition of native intent data from Bombora, G2, and TrustRadius, demonstrates 6sense's commitment to powering the revtech engine with the most extensive buyer intent data. During FY2022, 6sense expanded relationships with its robust and growing ecosystem of partners, including Bombora, Drift, G2, Mediafly, PathFactory, TrustRadius, Salesloft, and others. Customers benefited from more than 50 meaningful updates to the 6sense platform over the past year. The Industry Takes Note of 6sense's Impact Throughout FY2022, 6sense generated acclaim for its platform from several third-party organizations. 6sense was recognized as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Account-Based Marketing Platforms Report, based on the company's Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. The company was listed on the Forbes Cloud 100 list, which ranked the top private cloud companies. 6sense also made it onto the Inc. Best Workplaces 2021 list for the third year in a row for supporting its employees and keeping them engaged through the pandemic.
