“Companies want to know what they can expect from marketing automation from a ROI standpoint before they invest,” said Debbie Qaqish, Principal and Chief Revenue Marketing Officer, The Pedowitz Group. “They are now looking at how to run marketing as a profit center, not a cost center. Until now, little measurable data existed to help make this case.”
The 2012 Lead Gen Marketing Effectiveness study was conducted in August via an online survey distributed to Demand Gen Report’s subscriber base. The sampling was supplemented by Pedowitz Group’s contacts and social networks. Input was gathered and analyzed from 373 B2B marketers, across the globe. The largest portion of those surveyed worked for companies with annual revenues higher than $50M (38%) operating in the technology space (41%).
“Executives can bring lead generation effectiveness to higher levels with marketing automation that is supported with processes, sales alignment and measurement of key outcomes including ROI and revenue," says Jim Lenskold, President of Lenskold Group. "Driving growth and financial contribution demonstrates marketing accountability and earns credibility."
