Marketing Finger http://www.marketingfinger.com Pointing out interesting stuff Thu, 27 Jun 2013 06:38:44 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.3.9 What are marketers reading this summer? http://www.marketingfinger.com/2013/06/what-are-marketers-reading-this-summer/ http://www.marketingfinger.com/2013/06/what-are-marketers-reading-this-summer/#comments Thu, 27 Jun 2013 06:38:44 +0000 http://www.marketingfinger.com/?p=1171 The Fourth of July is just around the corner and for many of us, that means the official beginning of summer. With the new season come thoughts – or perhaps mere dreams – of lazy days ahead. Perhaps camping, road trips, flights to far away places, and time to catch up on some summer reading.

What have you got packed away in your carry-on? Or on your Kindle? Or iBook?

We’ll put the question to our #B2Bchat Twitter audience on June 27. Tune in at 5:00 p.m. Pacific to discuss this and several other questions such as:

Q. What is your preferred book format and why?

Q. Do you engage with authors via social media? Which authors are best at it?

Q. What are the hottest marketing books out at the moment?

Q. Which older marketing titles are must-reads for B2B marketers? Why?

Q. Which non-marketing books have taught you lessons that you’ve applied to your marketing career?

Q. Does your organization / your client have lead gen. targets for social media?

Q. How do you calculate the ROI of social media marketing?

How to Turn Followers and Fans into Leads (and when not to) http://www.marketingfinger.com/2012/02/how-to-turn-followers-and-fans-into-leads-and-when-not-to/ http://www.marketingfinger.com/2012/02/how-to-turn-followers-and-fans-into-leads-and-when-not-to/#comments Thu, 02 Feb 2012 22:02:52 +0000 http://www.marketingfinger.com/?p=1115 One of the most evident goals of a social media program is to grow the fan base. Publish great content, develop a voice, reach out to others in social networks, rinse and repeat.

But as social media becomes more accountable, marketers look for ways to generate leads throughout the process.

So how do you best turn fans into leads? Should they be considered in the same sentence? How do we separate followers from potential leads?

In our latest session of #B2Bchat, we dive into these questions and more. Join us on February 2, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific to discuss How to Turn Followers and Fans into Leads (and when not to).

Q. What is the definition of a sales-ready lead?

Q. Do you enter your followers and fans into Salesforce.com (or other CRM)?

Q. How do your social media followers fit into lead generation?

Q. What is the transition point between being a fan to being a lead?

Q. What’s the quickest way to turn customers into followers?

Social Media and Email: Two Separate Worlds? #B2Bchat http://www.marketingfinger.com/2011/09/social-media-and-email-two-separate-worlds-b2bchat/ http://www.marketingfinger.com/2011/09/social-media-and-email-two-separate-worlds-b2bchat/#comments Thu, 08 Sep 2011 15:44:19 +0000 http://www.marketingfinger.com/?p=1088 Email marketing and social media marketing – two core marketing channels – were born approximately a decade apart. And among most B2B marketing organizations, social media and email are still handled as two separate entities.

Chris Hosford, in his recent article in BtoB Magazine, points out that social and email interactions depend on each other much more than is commonly acknowledged. Should there be a stronger push towards the convergence of social media and email as it relates to customer and prospect communication? What are the best ways to leverage the two mediums in tandem?

Join other B2B marketers for a lively Twitter chat on Thursday, September 8 (5 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Eastern) as we dive in to the following questions, and more!

Q. Do you collect social profile info for your customers/prospects?

Q. Does your email audience expect you to communicate with them via email?

Q. What are the best ways to get your social media audience to opt in to email communications?

Q. What are the best tools for bringing together social and email communication?

Q. Why are social media and email traditionally treated as silos?

Q. For the B2B marketer, what are the similarities between email and social media?

Q. Does an opt-in mean the same thing in social media as with email?

The Definitive Guide to Marketing Metrics and Analytics: Key Take-Aways http://www.marketingfinger.com/2011/07/the-definitive-guide-to-marketing-metrics-and-analytics-key-take-aways/ http://www.marketingfinger.com/2011/07/the-definitive-guide-to-marketing-metrics-and-analytics-key-take-aways/#comments Sun, 31 Jul 2011 02:30:34 +0000 http://www.marketingfinger.com/?p=1070

I recently got my hands on Marketo’s latest white paper, titled: The Definitive Guide to Marketing Metrics and Analytics.

Here are some of the gems I found in the 70-page paper and which I cover in the video above.

  1. Define targets for each of your marketing campaigns as you plan them. Consider setting a ‘best possible outcome’, ‘worst case scenario’ and ‘most likely outcome’. Express these targets in terms of number of leads, amount of incremental revenue to be generated, or in terms of anticipated ROI.
  2. Keep 10% of your marketing budget for ‘Marketing R&D’. Experimentation can lead to new best practices. Acknowledge that you are experimenting with some of your programs and detach those from revenue targets.
  3. Don’t Measure Just for the Sake of Measurement. Before you invest time and resources in measuring a data set, you should know what you would do if the answer turned out to be X or Y.
  4. Define Distinct Stages in your Customer’s Buying Cycle. Especially in B2B, with longer sales cycles, you need to acknowledge the fact that there are several stages in the buying cycle. Marketing’s work will not only generate leads, but also help move leads forward through these stages. This requires fixed definitions – understood across the marketing and sales organization – based on business rules.
  5. Marketo's Demand Generation Funnel (simplified)

  6. Measure Flow, Balance, Conversion and Velocity of Leads. Once you have lead stages defined, the following metrics will be most important: Flow (# of people entering the stage), Balance (current inventory in that stage), Conversion (% of names, on average, that make it from the previous stage) and Velocity (time it takes, on average, to complete the stage).
  7. Aim to knowing the answers to these crucial questions: What would be the expected ROI if your marketing budget increased by 10%. What would be the impact on sales closed? Alternately, what would be the impact on sales if the budget was decreased 10%? Questions like these test marketing’s maturity.

This paper is a must-read for marketing executives that are aiming to improve their departments’ efficiency and accountability.

Imagine you are tasked with, or involved in, a major purchase decision for your company. Where do you go to for information? Whose advice do you seek and which recommendations carry weight?

As marketers, we understand value of word of mouth. Word of mouth is in our nature, and it’s powerful. How can we harness the opportunities before us to generate buzz, positive word of mouth, and new business referrals?

In our upcoming episode of #B2Bchat, we’ll look at B2B marketing as it relates to influence and word of mouth. Questions will include:

Q. What are the best ways to identify influencers in your industry?

Q. Do referral programs work? How?

Q. Brand advocacy: is it different in B2B?

Q. How can you (ethically) turn influencers into brand advocates?

Join us for the one-hour session, June 2 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific / 8:00 p.m. Eastern where we dive into the topic of Marketing to Influencers!
