Ineffective buyer engagement is a drag on revenue performance.

There is a lot of hype about tactics like Inbound and ABM, but few ‘revenue marketers’ are using a true buyer-first approach. A true buyer engagement approach will more clearly identify the role of marketing and sales tactics and shape 1:1 messaging and experience.

We see issues every day as we work with clients, including:

  • Confusing the “tools” with the “techniques” of effective buyer engagement
  • A focus on tactics (inbound, ABM, etc.) rather the buyer dynamics
  • Getting persona development all wrong
  • Messaging that largely misses the mark
  • Content that is domain-centric rather than engagement-focused
  • Metrics that do not ‘close the loop’ across marketing and sales.
