Watch the webinar
Our webinar analysed the findings of the 2016 B2B Marketing Outlook Report – developed in conjunction with ADMA. There was a great response this year with 448 B2B marketers taking the time to complete the study and the results provide valuable insight into the latest B2B marketing trends.
We had a panel of B2B marketing experts on hand who examined the behaviours of best-in-class marketers, exploring their approach to ROI measurement, automation and content marketing.
Some key findings included:
- Budgets are on the rise with 40% saying they will increase compared with 9% decreasing in 2016
- Only 36% of marketers report satisfactory lead follow-up
- Best-in-class marketers will spend 50% more of their budget on marketing automation in 2016 (12% of total budget compared to just 8% of the rest of respondents).
- Best-in-class marketers are significantly more accurate in measuring key performance metrics
