  • www.earnest-agency.com We came, we saw, we crunched…
  • www.earnest-agency.com Marketing is different to how it used to be. “ ”John Heffernan, Digital Sales Director, Foundry Comms So how…?
  • www.earnest-agency.com In the old world, the analogue CMO would need to tap dance round the board room to sell an idea…. “ Caroline Taylor, VP of marketing and CMO, IBM Europe …Now it’s all about evidence and analysis. ” ”
  • www.earnest-agncy.com 80% of all data was produced in the last 2 years. Data is the new oil. You need to mine it, process it and refine it to make it useful and powerful. “ ” Caroline Taylor, VP of marketing and CMO, IBM Europe
  • There is nothing quite so useless, as doing with great efficiency, something that should not be done at all. Peter Drucker via Heidi Taylor, Head of Government & Public Sector Marketing, PwC “ ” Because the fact of the matter is…
  • There’s no longer a digital marketing discipline. All marketing is digital. “ ”Caroline Taylor, VP of marketing and CMO, IBM Europe
  • www.earnest-agency.com ” In a sales process: 21% of time is spent talking to sales people. 23% talking to peers and colleagues. 56% on pure online research. IDG Connect via David Fox, CEO & founder, Fox Parrack Singapour “

  • 38% of social media users disengage because content is repetitive or boring. “ ” John Heffernan, Digital Sales Director, Foundry Comms
  • ” Gina Balarin, Content Manager, Concur People don’t want good content. They don’t even want great content. They want super relevant content. “
  • “In the month after the Volvo video, there were more searches for ‘Volvo trucks’ than ‘great sex’. ” Fearghal O’Connor, Industry Manager – B2B software & services, Google
  • www.earnest-agency.com Social Media is becoming more visual. We can process images 600,000 times faster than one paragraph of text. “ ” John Heffernan, Digital Sales Director, Foundry Comms

  • www.earnest-agency.com “ ” 32% of business buyers look for customer testimonial videos. Fearghal O’Connor, Industry Manager – B2B software & services, Google
  • “ Alex Robertson, Head of Social Media, Red Rocket Media You don’t need a massive follower base if you engage the right influencers. Look at it this way, you don’t go to a party with your favourite track and shout play my music as soon as you get there. You need to find the influencer, the guy on the decks, and speak to him. ” Word to the wise:
  • “ ” There are essentially three types of content: i) Hero content helps build awareness and positions your brand. ii) Hygiene content offers the best possible answer to a customer’s questions. iii) Hub content helps build customer loyalty. Fearghal O’Connor, Industry Manager – B2B software & services, Google

  • “ ” A big idea has to come from balancing the personal needs of the buyer with those of the business. Chris Wilson, MD, Earnest And understanding your buyers is more important than ever:
  • www.earnest-agency.com “ Chris Wilson, MD, Earnest Global campaigns have to be based on a universal behavioural insight if they are to be successful. Otherwise you end up with brand camouflage – a lowest common denominator approach. ”
  • www.earnest-agency.com Elizabeth Smyth, EMEA Marketing Director, Marketo “ ” Our marketing communications need to be like a real conversation – adapting mid conversation, flowing back and forth, between communications.
  • www.earnest-agency.com “B2B brands have a higher emotional connection than B2C brands – because they actually have a bigger impact on your life. They help you get promoted, they make you look good, they make you successful. James Smee, Co-founder, Purestone ” Opportunity knocks:
  • www.earnest-agency.com “ ” Georgina Gilmore, Senior Director, global B2B marketing, Kaspersky Lab There's a big difference between 'internal comms' and ‘internal engagement’. Internal comms often ends up just being email. Internal engagement is about getting on the road and meeting people face-to-face. You have to do this if you want your global campaign to 'land' locally with regional marketers. ” It pays to get your own people on side too:
