Empowered: How B2B Marketers Can Best Support Sales with Brand and Content
Have you heard the prediction? Analysts believe 1M B2B sales reps will lose their jobs by 2020.
In an era where B2B buyers educate themselves online and through word-of-mouth, the role of a sales team has changed. But, too often, Marketing falls short in helping our counterparts. 70% of our content sits unused.
We’re frustrated that Sales won’t use our assets. Sales is frustrated because the content doesn’t help them win deals.
The stakes are far too high to continue this way! Especially with the rise of Account-Based Marketing, it’s time to evolve from “sales enablement” to “sales empowerment.”
In this actionable session, “unapologetic marketing truth-teller” Katie Martell will share:
a) How marketing teams can support Sales before – and throughout – the funnel (especially with ABM)
b) What B2B buyers really want from brands
c) Ideas for marketers to support their sales counterparts with brand and content
