Sales force compensation is the largest marketing investment for most B2B companies. In fact, U.S. companies spend over $800 billion on it each year.

Determining how to structure your marketing strategy is a complicated task. You’re expected to stay within a determined budget and come up with viable, affordable opportunities to bring in qualified leads. These steps will help you to strategize efficiently and reach most likely buyers:
Sales and marketing are inherently connected. The sales team relies on content and lead generation from marketing and the marketing team needs sales people to carry out marketing strategies. They both share the same overall goal: to increase revenue for the company. The challenge is to align the sales and marketing departments so that they can efficiently work towards that goal.
Most leads aren’t sales-ready when you first contact them. Lead nurturing is a process through which you can maintain a relationship with those leads, track them, and develop them into sales-ready leads rather than letting them go cold.
Big Data encompasses all of the structured and unstructured data that can be found, measured, and analyzed. Where is this data coming from? It can be found through transactions, social media, sensor and M2M data, federal, state, local, and public records, and a variety of other sources. Big data includes all of the information people populate manually as well as the information that can be found about people and businesses. The amount of personal and enterprise information available is growing exponentially in an increasingly technologically-driven world. So what’s the big deal about big data? It isn’t just about dealing with more data than before – big data is characterized by velocity, variety, and variability (the 3 V’s). Continue reading →
If you are a marketer or a person working in technology sector, you must have come across the phrase “Big Data” numerous times. Around 2011, McKinsey coined the term “Big Data” but the concept would not be new to anyone who has been present in the internet era. While everybody is talking about Big Data, we are also trying to understand what it means for our businesses. For a business in healthcare, it might mean predicting an epidemics even before it might occur; for a business in manufacturing, it might help improve the productivity; for a retail business, it might help in telling us beforehand which product would do well even before they are produced. And so on… Continue reading →

LinkedIn recently launched a new analytics tab for the company pages that can be quite helpful if you want to understand your page’s performance better and use it to drive prospects to your business. Even before LinkedIn launched analytics tab, it provided page insights for the company pages. However, the insights were not as detailed as the analytics and page insights are now. In fact, there are a few elements such as clicks, likes, engagement %, that are common to both analytics and page insights. It might be that eventually LinkedIn would combine these two and make one page, but for now, I thought it would be helpful for our readers to make a note of few metrics that can help them understand the useful metrics for their pages.
