The answer: by planning strategic marketing campaigns, establishing streamlined processes, and organizing your team to execute initiatives in a more aligned and productive way. Bridging the content gaps in your organization helps you coordinate the efforts of your teams, but also enables you to create superior customer engagements because you’re presenting a more united front to those who consume your content.
This eBook will show you how to do just that. It will describe how to execute a cohesive plan aligned with your company’s goals, organize your campaigns, and coordinate content distribution across departments and stages of the funnel.
Today, the internet has changed the way buyers discover solutions. More people are meeting and researching vendors online than ever before. Your ideal customers are reading blog posts and articles, checking Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles, and forming opinions based on what you say and share online. Before they call to get to know your company better, they turn to Google for answers and information. If a competing vendor appears smarter, more interesting, or more reliable than you, your buyers will reach out to them first.
These online engagements have changed the rules of buyer/brand communications. So how can you and your company form meaningful relationships with buyers who are getting to know you long before they’ve been introduced?
Over the past 10 years, the Internet has provided unprecedented access to information. Consequently, B2B buyers are constantly online learning about industry trends and innovative solutions to their pain points. Given their busy schedules, buyers have grown accustomed to the convenience of researching and comparing multiple options online, narrowing their choices independently of the vendor and, only then, engaging with sales.
While buyers have always made the final purchase decision, in today’s world, the vendor is not given an opportunity to engage until the buyer is close to a choice. Today, the buyer is in control of their own journey.

Today's Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions aim to recapture the personalized customer service provided by local mom-and-pop shops of yore – except with high-tech-analytics capabilities, collaborative platforms and automated processes. By gathering information from multiple data sources and storing it in a centralized location, a hosted CRM solution provides a holistic view of a customer in real time. Armed with this insight, a company’s management, sales and service people can better generate leads, target top customers, manage marketing campaigns, drive sales and boost customer satisfaction.
Stop to think about how – and how often – your business interacts with customers. Every day, with each interaction, data is created. What percentage of the data generated by these interactions are you using? There are so many channels for interaction, like social media, call centers, sales staff, help and support resources, marketing and campaigns.
Typically, organizations believe that they are using only a small fraction of it effectively – at best, upwards of 10 percent of all the available data. Why? One reason relates to the difficulties in collecting all this data. This limitation is beginning to wane as commodity hardware becomes increasingly popular for big data storage. But another major inhibitor to examining all customer data has been the inability to examine millions, or even billions, of data points that constitute the customer picture. And much of this is now in the form of unstructured text inputs.
