Integration between ON24 and HubSpot gives organizations invaluable audience insights to better understand the digital channels and activities that are creating the best leads and sales opportunities.”

BUYER INTENT DATA

With New Integration, RollWorks and G2 Give B2B Marketers Richer Insights Into Buyer Intent

RollWorks, G2 | February 24, 2022

Account-based marketing platform RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, today announced a new partnership with the largest software marketplace G2 that further bolsters its intent signal offerings. With the integration of G2 Buyer Intent, Rollworks customers now have a powerful way to capture multi-faceted, account-level intent signals and can use that data to better identify and prioritize the right accounts across their entire account-based marketing approach. RollWorks recently found that nearly three in four marketing and sales professionals indicate customer acquisition as the primary goal of their ABM strategies. As such, the need for intent data that provides early and real-time account activity and research that indicates buyers' interest in a specific solution—and their likelihood to purchase—has never been more critical. Ideal for organizations wanting to gain more granular account activity data, expand their prospecting and engagement, and identify customers at risk for churn, RollWorks' G2 integration provides the keen insight both marketing and sales teams need to understand where accounts are within their buying journey and determine who, how, and when accounts and specific users should be engaged. "Comprehensive, accurate data is the lifeblood of any mature account-based marketing strategy," said Mike Stocker, VP of Partnerships at RollWorks. "Comprehensive, accurate data is the lifeblood of any mature account-based marketing strategy," said Mike Stocker, VP of Partnerships at RollWorks. "With our partnership, both RollWorks and G2 customers have more account intent data to identify and engage in-market prospects and uncover existing accounts at risk for churn. Organizations can also understand how G2 activity impacts an account's buying journey, enabling them to, ultimately, more efficiently grow their revenue." RollWorks customers can leverage G2 Buyer Intent in three main ways: Build Target Account Lists to discover more accounts that are actively researching specific products and categories on G2's website, including insights on product-specific and competitor comparisons. Customize Account Journey Stages to inform marketing and sales strategy for outreach and view how accounts are progressing through their designated buying journey. View Account Journey Events to help determine what is influencing an account's progression and regression and inform ABM efforts. "G2's Buyer Intent data layered with RollWorks' fit, intent, and engagement signals provides the powerful, actionable insights that teams need to effectively identify relevant buyer behaviors and reap more ROI from their go-to-market strategies," said Brittany Wroblewski, VP of Strategic Partnerships at G2. "There's a clear appetite for this type of richer data set, and we're excited at how quickly our mutual customer base has begun to adopt these new capabilities. We will continue listening to the market and look forward to evolving our partnership with RollWorks in the future." "The RollWorks and G2 integration gives us an additional layer of insight into our customers' stage in their purchasing journey and helps us better cater our ABM strategy to serve them at the right place and right time," said Tommy Nguyen, Senior Manager of Digital Marketing at Laserfiche. Since 2020, RollWorks has heavily invested in its own data foundation—including enhancements to firmographic data identification and IP to domain resolution—that has elevated the overall company match rate of accounts targeted by RollWorks customers to 98%. These strong investments in RollWorks' data assets, combined with the company's Global Partner Program with market leaders like G2 and Bombora, position RollWorks to offer one of the industry's most robust data capabilities.

Contentgine Announces the Release of Its First "Content Top 5 in 15" Video Program Starring Robert Rose

Contentgine | February 14, 2022

Contentgine® (www.contentgine.com), the world leader in content-based marketing, announced today that it has released the first video in its groundbreaking series, called "Contentgine Content Top 5 in 15." Hosted by well-known author and content expert Robert Rose of the Content Marketing Institute, the video series consists of Rose's analysis of the top five most read content pieces in a particular product category, culled from Contentgine's vast collection of business content consumption data. The first episode, which is free and hosted on the company's website, analyzes the top five content pieces in the data analytics product category, with case studies written by #Sisense, #SyncFusion, #Atlassian (ChartIO), and #Encorta. Rose provided some insight to the series and the first program topic - data analytics - saying: "The show is for any demand or content marketer, even though we focus on a particular product category for that show. There is so much information to be gleaned from looking at what makes a piece of content – regardless of category – that we think the fifteen minutes it takes to view the program will prove to be time well-spent for those marketers looking to improve their content consumption and demand generation." "What struck me about the data analytics space," Rose continued, "was how well-written each content piece was in taking complex ideas and making them easily understood even by folks not having an analytics background. #SiSense, in particular, had two pieces of content in the Top Five, and I think it's a testament to the quality of the writing that went into every piece." Ian Dix, Chief Marketing Officer for Contentgine, stated: "We think this will be a trailblazing series for demand and content marketers, because no one has had the content consumption data at this scale before. We have it as part of our Perpetual Engine® methodology, and we can offer marketers the first real look at what makes great content great." Ian Dix, Chief Marketing Officer for Contentgine, stated: "We think this will be a trailblazing series for demand and content marketers, because no one has had the content consumption data at this scale before. We have it as part of our Perpetual Engine® methodology, and we can offer marketers the first real look at what makes great content great." "Our next three programs," Dix continued, "will have Robert analyzing the most-read content pieces in the database solutions, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things product categories. We hope our marketing friends get good insights and some "aha" moments ideas from Robert's brilliant analyses." The first Top 5 in 15 programs can be found at: https://contentgine.com/top-5/analytics ABOUT CONTENTGINE Contentgine ® has claimed a leadership position in the content syndication and intent marketing categories, basing its business upon the following value proposition: "Contentgine helps all professionals in all industries find the right solutions for their businesses."
