GÉNÉRATION DE LEADS EN B2B : QUEL MARKETING MIX METTRE EN OEUVRE ? Le club B2B de l'Adetem a organisé le 20 Janvier 2016 un atelier sur le meilleur Marketing mix pour la Génération de Leads en B2B. Pour lancer les débats, SiriusDecisions a présenté cette étude de 2015 sur l’efficacité des tactiques de création de la demande en Europe. Nous y apprendrons :
• en quoi l’usage des tactiques a changé
• quels sont les tactiques jugées les plus efficaces par les Marketers B2B européens.
Sirius Decision a enqueté aupres de 470 directeurs de la création de la demande sur le marché européen, en particulier le Royaume Uni, la France, l’Italie, l’Allemagne, l’Espagne et la Hollande. Nous avons demandé a chaque participant d’identifier le mix marketing qu’ils utilisent pour générer des “Inquiries” (un lead dans son état le plus basique), et les faire évoluer a travers les 3 étapes du parcours d’achat: Education, solution et sélection.
Les résultats nous ont montré un changement significatif des tactiques de Marketing Mix comme :
• les white papers,
• les essais en ligne,
• les demandes de devis
• les bannieres en ligne,
• les séminaires,
• le marketing aupres des associations,
• l’acquisition de listes de contact.
La réunion a été animée par :
Hervé GONAY, Directeur Général de GETPLUS et Co-Président du Club B2B de l'Adetem
