B2B marketing has always been hard. We’ve had to make do with a dizzying array of technologies that don’t quite suit our needs. We’ve had to endure increasingly complex buying journeys with an ever-growing number of people involved in a purchase process. And over the past year, we’ve had to adjust to a new pandemic reality that shifted how buyers work, consume content, engage with vendors, and research, evaluate and make purchase decisions. No sweat.
This past year, it became clear that the tools and tactics of yesteryear no longer make the cut. We saw marketing and sales teams riddled with disconnected data, creating silos that hold us back from delivering intelligent buyer and account journeys. As a result, we’ve been unable to create meaningful experiences that engage our audiences, which in turn prevents us from capturing the insights to improve results. It’s a vicious cycle of random acts of marketing.
This current state is unsustainable, inefficient, and ineffective.
It sets us up to fail. Today, buyers call the shots, and they know it. We need to rethink how we do B2B marketing. We need to be buyer-driven and act with more precision, more connections, and more agility. We need an omnichannel, buyer-driven approach called Precision Demand Marketing. Being able to connect our marketing efforts across channels, respond to a buyer’s needs and interest in accordance with their preference, and to learn with every interaction and optimize your marketing campaigns is B2B marketing nirvana.
Integrate’s Demand Acceleration Platform
We’re excited to launch the Demand Acceleration Platform (DAP) to move marketers toward Precision Demand Marketing. Integrate’s DAP provides a scalable solution for high-growth and enterprise organizations to drive omnichannel demand strategies, orchestrate intelligent buyer and account journeys, convert more leads and accounts to revenue, and demonstrate marketing return on investment. More specifically, the Integrate DAP empowers B2B marketers with precision by:
- Increasing conversions of marketing-generated leads.
- Ensuring all leads generated are opted in for data that’s 100% marketable, compliant, and ready for activation in connected systems.
- Saving demand, digital and marketing operations teams time, budget, and resources.
- Understanding, measuring, and optimizing budget spend across demand channels with real-time, actionable measurement reports for a view into which accounts, campaigns, sources, or content are driving results.
- Reducing silos by gaining visibility across activated demand channels to centralize demand data sources.
Integrate’s DAP also allows B2B marketers to execute more personalized buyer experiences with cross-channel performance visibility to make informed data-driven decisions on their digital advertising campaigns, ensuring they are engaging the right buyers with the right messages at the right times. DAP customers also have free access to Shareable Reports, which allow teams to distribute lead and campaign reports safely and securely to non-credentialed users via email using two-factor authentication.
With the Integrate DAP, marketers can now have the ability to connect the essential data, technology and consulting services providers they need to streamline their demand effort and increase their performance. This means marketers can bring their current vendors, data providers, marketing services companies and agencies together, around DAP, in a way that connects channels and makes them work better together.
“We are entering an exceptionally exciting time for marketing that is challenging us in new ways and pushing us to be better,” said Leslie Alore, Global Vice President of Growth Marketing, Ivanti. “Solutions like Integrate allow us to reach key personas and accounts around the world in a highly scalable way without having to sacrifice precision.”
