Industry Data: What It Is and How It Can Help You Find New Customers

Not all businesses are the same. This simple statement isn't especially controversial, yet it's surprisingly powerful. The statement implies that, since not all businesses are the same, they should not be treated as if they are, which provides support for the practice of market segmentation. In a nutshell, market segmentation allows you to concentrate your resources on the potential customers that are the most likely to be interested in your offering. An essential component of most B2B segmentation processes is identifying the organizational characteristics that make your offering more valuable to company A than company B.

Technology Data: What It Is and How It Can Help You Find New Customers

The International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that the yearly global spending on digital transformation will reach $2.8 trillion in 2025. For the uninitiated, digital transformation refers to the adoption of digital technologies by a company, and it is generally pursued in the hope that these newly-adopted digital technologies will provide efficiency gains and customer intimacy.

The aforementioned statistic clearly highlights that the demand for digital technologies that improve existing business processes is, to say the least, significant. The growing demand for digital technologies presents an unprecedented opportunity for companies that are able to provide products or services that help businesses achieve these digital transformations.

Of course, life is never completely without its challenges, and a difficulty for providers of such products or services lies in identifying companies that use, or don’t use, certain digital technologies. Fortunately, there is something that can help such companies overcome such a challenge: Technology data.

3 Lead Generation Strategies to Convert Your Site Visitors Into Leads

Obviously, knowing what something is is important. However, the practical value often comes from knowing how to do that something, not simply knowing what that something is. On the back of this very smooth introduction, we’ll be starting our discussion of the lead generation strategies that you should incorporate into your inbound marketing practices to ensure a steady flow of new leads.

4 Simple Steps To A First-Rate Inbound Lead Generation Process

While reportedly first being coined in 2006 by HubSpot, you can find examples of inbound marketing through history, even before the emergence of the internet. The common thread that linked all of these different marketing initiatives was that they worked to pull customers to the organization, not push the organization’s offering upon the customer.

Sales Pipeline Management: Best Practices

Salespeople often obsess over growing a big, beautiful sales pipeline. “Fill pipeline with hot leads” or “fill pipeline with best-fit prospects” are recurrent tasks at the top of the to-do list. While well intentioned, that often means salespeople will dedicate too much time to sales prospecting instead of thinking about how to get prospects to flow through the pipeline.

Sales Pipeline: What You Need to Know to Get Started

A fun way to think about sales is as a quest. I know that might sound a little odd but, if you just bear with me, I promise the metaphor will make a lot of sense. In this fantastical metaphor, a salesperson would be the brave adventurer setting out on a perilous journey in search of fame and fortune. Now, obviously an adventurer needs many things to accomplish their quest, but there is one essential tool that is negligently underappreciated—a map. I mean, without a map, would Indiana Jones have been able to find the lost Ark? I’d venture to say that it’s doubtful.
