So…what’s the 411, anyway? If you’re a B2B marketer like me, you’re probably knee-deep in account-based marketing headed into 2017. And…if that’s the case – you’re probably wondering:
“What’s the big deal with cookies and IPs anyway? Does it really make any difference if my program is cookie-based or IP-based? How do I know when to use which? Should I ever use both?”
That’s where this post comes in…I’m here to give you a quick rundown of what exactly it means for an ABM program to be cookie-based vs IP-based and when and where you can use each one. Continue reading →
With 2016 fast approaching, many B2B marketers are considering account-based marketing as part of their program mix for the new year.
What is Account-Based Marketing?
ABM is an outbound marketing program that provides the unique capability to target the exact accounts of interest to your company, as well as the key contacts or decision makers that you need to reach. ABM programs are more cost-effective in terms of media spend, and help accelerate the pipeline and boost revenues. For more detail on ABM programs and how they work, click here.
As you embark on the ABM path, you might be wondering: “How do we get the best ROI from our ABM program spend?” Well, look no further. Here is a comprehensive 13-point checklist that will help your marketing team achieve great results from ABM.

For the past decade or so, businesses have been hesitant to invest (more) in display advertising. The primary reason? Marketers are often unable to connect their display media spend to subsequent conversion events on their website.
The main obstacle marketers face is their inability to connect a specific display ad with the conversion, viz: purchasing a product or service, signing up for a webinar, or downloading an ebook. The key question for them: how can this linkage be established, when they can’t control how their prospects might behave, or predict the exact time and place of a conversion action? Continue reading →
