  2. 2. INTRODUCTION B2B demand generation is an area of major investment whose performance is critical to revenue growth. Radius and Demand Metric recently partnered to understand current pain points for B2B demand generation marketers and how predictive analytics address those challenges now and in the future. Increasingly, B2B demand generation carries greater expectations to produce qualified leads at higher volumes. The emphasis on quality and quantity challenges the delicate balance between information gathering and sensitive lead nurturing. Efforts to improve demand generation are well justified; the top barrier to achieving revenue objectives identified in this study is demand generation process effectiveness. With demand generation so clearly a part of the critical path to revenue, B2B marketers are eager to discover and explore approaches, technologies and data sources to drive more effective demand generation. As one survey participant stated, “Demand generation is our primary issue.” This study catalogues the current state of B2B demand generation, specifically gathering data to understand whether, and if so, and where predictive analytics can contribute to greater demand generation effectiveness. This report presents the findings of this research, giving B2B marketers a set of benchmarks for comparison along with ideas for improvement. © 2016 Demand Metric Research Corporation.

  3. 3. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This study measured the current challenges for B2B demand generation marketers with the objective of understanding specific, current pain points as well as how and where predictive analytics can address them.

The analysis of this study’s data provides these key findings: !  Predictive analytics adopters are more likely to have an effective demand generation process. !  Inaccurate or poor quality data is an impediment to effective demand generation and the successful application of predictive analytics. !  Marketers primarily targeting Enterprise are more actively engaged in analyzing their data than those focused on Mid-Market and SMB. !  More study participants claim to understand predictive analytics well (44%) than are actually implementing or using it (11%). This report details the results and insights from the analysis of the study data. For more detail on the survey participants, please refer to the Appendix. © 2016 Demand Metric Research Corporation.
