Simple Steps to Empower Your Sales Team

The Usual Method

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. Traditionally, sales teams have been incentivized a bit differently than the rest of employees. They are on the front lines talking to customers, battling to bring in revenue for your company. Their efforts have been quantified based on the revenue they bring in. We often think of sales people as a different breed of employees: competitive, driven, and motivated by money.

The Importance of Sales & Marketing Alignment


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.

The Importance of B2B Lead Nurturing


What is Lead Nurturing?

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.

Why Nurture Leads?

73 % of sales leads are not sales-ready when they enter the top of the funnel but 65% of B2B marketers have not established lead nurturing campaigns. This leaves a lot of room for those leads to go cold over time. These leads aren’t ready to purchase just yet. But don’t forget that there’s a huge opportunity to create a relationship with potential future customers. Remember, they became a lead for a reason and saw inherent value in something you offered. Creating and nurturing long lasting relationships with these leads can help establish trust and loyalty for your organization. Additionally, you can ensure that these contacts are clean and up-to-date by engaging with them as part of a B2B nurture campaign.

The Value Of Big Data

value-of-big-dataWhat is Big Data?

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

Key LinkedIn analytics to gain your page insights

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.
