During Scott’s episode, he hammers in the importance of filling your pipeline and knowing your numbers. Plus, he breaks down:
Thank you Scott, for stopping by the Qualified.com studio for our premiere episode of Demand Gen Visionaries. We hope you all enjoy learning from this pro!
“If you’re not thinking about demand gen as a CMO, what else is there?”
“The number one job for a marketing leader is pipeline creation. If I'm not hitting my pipeline target for the sales team, nothing else matters. Plus, it buys you the right to do the fun stuff.”
“We've got hundreds of campaigns running at any given point of time. Marketing these days is an all out, guns blazing affair.”
“Segmentation strategy is critical, but it just doesn’t fly at all if you don’t have sales bought in. If they’re not ready to segment accounts, and narrow the focus to a reasonable level, then it won’t work.”
“It’s the golden age of data. In particular, being able to pull data from nontraditional sources together and analyze quickly across them is crucial.”
"Now with Conversational Marketing, when a fortune 100 company is on our site, we know about it immediately.”
