Your B2B Sales & Marketing Flywheel

June 4, 2021

For B2B industrial and technical companies embracing modern marketing practices, we view the website as your most important marketing asset and lead generation tool. We’ve also said a great website can be like adding a few more people to your company’s sales team.

The challenge, however, is to fine tune your website and other digital marketing strategies to provide a stream of marketing qualified leads. And, at the same time, establishing disciplined processes to promptly follow up on each lead.

The role of marketing, including how marketing works with sales within B2B companies, has shifted dramatically within just the past few years. Emerging technologies and digital marketing tactics are also blurring the lines between traditional sales and marketing roles. And according to Aberdeen Group, sales and marketing alignment can lead to a 32% increase in year-over-year growth.

How to Win Market Share with a Customer-Centric Lens

whitePaper | May 18, 2021

For B2B sales and marketing teams, competitive analysis is a foundational process that reinforces and clarifies business cases or campaign roadmaps by identifying gaps and potential differentiators. A competitive analysis has become essential to developing and identifying a winning strategy for growth and success—essential when, on average, a business can have 25 direct competitors. In the traditional sense, this would equate to an analysis of competitors, their products, and their messaging.
