  13. 13. WHY INVEST IN YOUR REVENUE ENGINE? Here are 9 good reasons… Forrester, Gartner, Aberdeen Group and Sirius Decisions agree that best-of-breed companies who invest in these demand generation strategies achieve the following results: 1.  18% higher revenue 2.  16.5% higher campaign response rates and conversion rates 3.  50% decrease in time to execute campaigns 4.  85% decrease in cost per lead 5.  100% increase in deal size 6.  150% increase in qualified leads. 7.  33% higher deal win rate 8.  25% more revenue per closed deal 9.  30% decrease in deal cycle timePage  13   Proprietary  &  Confiden2al            ©  2011  Intelligent  Demand  
  14. 14. MARKETING AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY TIPS Lessons from the trenches Strategy and goals: Be clear about what you want to achieve with this investment. Set realistic, incremental goals. Crawl, walk, run. Process: Your business processes will need to change/evolve to support these new capabilities. However, this work will pay off in the form of shorter time to value and higher ROI. Sales: Pull Sales into the project early regarding goals and processes. Content: Create a content plan. You will likely need different and more content than you currently have. Think personas and buying stage. Marketing automation software: One size does not fit all. Think deeply about the features you truly need (both now and later). But look at more than features: integration requirements, scalability, use cases, support, vendor stability. Data model: Decide what data you have, what data you need and how you will keep it clean as you move forward. Understand and plan for your integration requirements. Organization: Like any important project that cuts across different work groups, the project will benefit greatly from internal leadership and strong communication.Page  14   Proprietary  &  Confiden2al            ©  2011  Intelligent  Demand
