B2B marketing
B2B marketing is different.
B2B marketing is different. Direct sales forces High-involvement sales process Lower volume; higher purchase price Rational vs. emotional purchase Complex and savvy 'buying unit'
B2B marketing legacy
B2B case >>>  AllRegs Mortgage industry data provider 2006 25+ tradeshows per year Low conversion rates Major source of leads Today 10 tradeshows per year Higher conversion rates New lead-gen avenues (e.g., alerts)
B2B marketing’s primary goals: drive leads for sales cost effectively qualified improve close rates help retain customers

Lead scoring = ‘Propensity to buy’
Lead scoring = ‘Resource triage’
Lead scoring looks at Buyer fit Demographic fit Behavioral fit
Role of lead scoring “A solid lead scoring approach not only helps to rank prospects against one another, but can smooth the lead flow and serve as the baseline for building a range of business rules that include ownership, role and activities.” >>> SiriusDecisions, “What’s the Score?”
Lead scoring:  Context
Nurturing context >>>MarketingSherpa
Quality context >>>Forrester
Awareness Marketing Interest + investigation Marketing Qualified 3.9% / 3.8% Sales Accepted 58.3% / 64.0% Sales Qualified 49.1% / 45.9% Sales New Business Stages context (w/ average B2B 08/09 conversions) 23.1% / 20.7% 2.57:1000 / 2.31:1000 >>>SiriusDecisions 2008 / 2009 data
Cultural context
Cultural context Marketing “They don’t follow up on any leads we give them” “A lead to them is a sale” “They ‘cherry-pick’ and act like they know what the leads want before calling them” “They don’t even look at half of the leads we give them” Sales “We have no visibility into what they are doing” “We need more support from them” “The leads they pass to us are worthless” “They don’t understand who our target market is”
Why score? Align Business Marketing Sales Prioritize resources Maximize sales team capacity Testing, analysis and improvement

  6. Old challenge: Be at the right tradeshows Allregs is an information provider for mortgage industry professionals. It is the official online provider of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac underwriting guidelines. In 2006, they attended approx 25 tradeshows which was their major source of lead generation. Since they implemented Engage B2B, they now attend 10 per year. They were putting names from the tradeshow events into their database and then oversaturating their list because there was no way to segment their list. Today, Allregs uses Engage B2B as a lead gen/cross sell tool. Before it was a “shot in the dark” and now it is much more improved. Before: No automation platform; not embracing a lead management mindsetAfter: Better integration; automation platform; lead management mindsetKey capabilities utilized: Nurturing Surveys Engaging w/ prospects and customers based on where they click Using Microsoft Dynamics CRM
