Automation is at the core of all business innovation today, and data is the commodity that drives it.
Marketers and sales reps can automate email campaigns, sales games, meetings, and more. Workflow automation enables them to interact directly with customers instead of wasting time on these repetitive tasks. And research shows that companies that automate on a large scale close more deals than those that don’t.
Go-to-market data encompasses an enormous variety of valuable insights, including information about which companies are getting new funding, current leadership skills at specific companies, insights into upcoming projects or new hires, and what topics these companies are researching online. The most successful companies collect this information and use it to aid their go-to-market strategies and tactics.
When it comes to doing more business, the ultimate competitive advantage is empowering marketing and sales teams with data and insights about their target markets.
“There may be no need more than having salespeople call the right people at the right time,” says Nancy Nardin, sales technology expert. “Fortunately, with the advent of AI, the accuracy and timeliness of data has skyrocketed, and data collection, cleansing, and enrichment have improved.”
Marketing automation has been around for many years, but often on a general playing field. For example, when visitors fill out a form on a company website, marketers can put their information in a sequence or campaign in their CRM. These campaigns are limited, however, as a form-filling mechanism does not provide targeted and specific information for each of these prospects.
Now we live in a world where individual salespeople can create targeted campaigns based on almost any imaginable scenario.
