The Definitive Guide to Marketing Automation

Beyond the time-saving and efficiency benefits, marketing automation enables business processes that are essential to any modern marketing department. For B2B companies, this includes lead nurturing, lead scoring, and lead lifecycle management. For B2C companies, it includes cross-sell, up-sell, and customer loyalty.

This means you need a disciplined process – known as lead nurturing – to develop qualified leads until they are sales-ready. Done well, nurturing can result in 50% more sales leads at 33% lower cost per lead. Retain and extend customer relationships. The marketer's job is far from finished once someone becomes a customer.

Making the Most of Your CRM: How Best-in-Class Sales Teams Maximize Revenue and Customer Experience

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Mar 18, 2014
Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself.

Sales Engagement Platforms Are The New Frontier Of B2B Selling

Published By: Outreach.io     Published Date: Apr 09, 2018
Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.
