Precision Demand Marketing Empowers Digital-First Era of B2B Marketing
Phoenix, AZ – March 24, 2021 – Integrate, the leader in B2B Precision Demand Marketing (PDM), today announced the launch of its Demand Acceleration Platform (DAP) to centralize and connect the B2B buying experience in today’s increasingly buyer-driven, digital era. Integrate’s Demand Acceleration Platform 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.
The events of the past year marked a turning point for B2B marketing as buyers shifted where they work, how they consume content, how they want to engage with vendors, and how they research, evaluate and make purchase decisions. According to Forrester, today’s B2B buyers are digital-first, expect unified buying experiences across all touchpoints, and want to be treated as partners, not targets.
“The history of business is littered with once-successful companies that ultimately failed because they did not adapt quickly enough to their buyers' changing behaviors,” wrote Lori Wizdo, VP, Principal Analyst and Steven Casey, Principal Analyst at Forrester in the May 2020 What B2B Buyers Crave report. “With ready access to much of the information they need to make a purchase, customers now control more of their buying journeys — and they know it. [Marketing’s] job is no longer to convince them to buy. It's to help them buy.”
The emerging category of Precision Demand Marketing enables the flexibility and adaptability to quickly react to buyer's needs, invest where needed, and orchestrate connected buying experiences with less budget waste. PDM allows marketers to meet buyers where they are in today’s rapidly evolving world with precise, omnichannel, buyer-driven approaches, providing them the information they need at the time they need it.
“In today’s buyer-driven world, it’s no longer enough to implement only traditional demand generation or single-channel Account-Based Marketing (ABM) strategies. Today’s new world calls for the next chapter of B2B marketing: Precision Demand Marketing, a more precise, more connected, and more agile marketing strategy that meets buyers where they are and when they want,” said Deb Wolf, CMO, Integrate. “Integrate’s Demand Acceleration Platform enables marketers to put buyers and their process at the center of everything they do and execute on a PDM approach that creates buyer trust, confidence, and engagement to accelerate predictable pipeline with precision.”
