Webinar to Help Marketing Automation Users Improve Data Quality, Results

April 29, 2011 — Waltham, MA — Users of marketing automation systems can learn best practices in list management and data quality in a webinar titled, “Marketing Automation: Avoiding the ‘Garbage-in, Garbage-out’ Trap.” ZoomInfo (, a B2B directory and business information provider, will host the free webinar May 3.

The event will feature ZoomInfo Vice President of Marketing Kathy Greenler Sexton and David Appelbaum, CMO, Act-On Software, a provider of a cloud-based, integrated marketing platform. The two marketing executives bring extensive experience and will share insights on the challenges marketers face with inaccurate, stale contact data and tips on how to improve list quality and management.

"A staggering 62 percent of companies recently surveyed stated that 20 percent to 40 percent of the contact data they are using is inaccurate," Sexton said. “This webinar will be especially valuable to marketing professionals who face the huge challenge of keeping data fresh and leads actionable."

Appelbaum added, "Many marketers just assume they have to live with large amounts of inaccurate records in their marketing automation databases but that’s not true. We look forward to showing them how they can improve results by improving data quality."

The 45-minute webinar will cover:

  • How good, clean data drives marketing success.
  • "Must knows" to get the most from marketing automation systems.
  • Breathing new life into old lists with cleaning and augmenting techniques that work.

The webinar begins at 2 p.m. EDT May 3. Pre-registration is required and can be completed at
