Posted by Kenneth Connolly on 30-Oct-2015 17:00:00

As a B2B marketer, your job is to engage prospects, convert them to leads, qualify them, nurture them until they are sales-ready, then hand them over to sales to complete the buying process.

So, the outcome is that many marketers tend to get over zealous in their activities and try to make leads sales-ready before they actually are – ultimately scaring them off.

Posted by John Hatton on 27-Apr-2015 16:22:00

Whether at sports day, cross country at school, or running after work, most of us can relate to the pain, sweat, and tears experienced at this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon (if you ran, please accept a virtual slap on the back from me). Yet all the while we are acutely aware that after crossing the finish line, and for quite some time after, the contestants are some of the happiest and proudest people on earth – months of training and preparation have been converted to an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and success.

What can IKEA teach us about B2B lead nurturing?

Posted by Kenneth Connolly on 27-Jan-2015 16:19:00

I recently recalled a childhood memory of being dragged along by my parents when they went to buy furniture for our house. The cavernous warehouse-style shops were filled with ‘scenes’ like living rooms and bedrooms and sometimes kitchens too. Once in this environment, my curiosity would get the better of me and I would run from one stand to the next, jumping on beds, laying on sofas and generally causing mayhem. With me otherwise engaged, my parents had the freedom to explore the items for sale in the store.

This shopping experience meant many things caught their eye, but they rarely fully engaged, and ultimately they bought nothing.
