This year’s landmark study indicates marketers are doing a good job of building the foundation for measurable content marketing by deploying marketing automation, but still have a way to go," said Jeff Pedowitz, CEO and President, The Pedowitz Group.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
The Pedowitz Group (TPG), global leaders in Revenue Marketing™, announces the release of Lenskold Group’s 6th Annual B2B Lead Generation Marketing Effectiveness Study. This is the third consecutive year TPG joined forces with Lenskold Group to analyze key concerns facing today’s Revenue Marketer®.
The 2013 study is an offshoot of last year’s initiative, which proved integrated marketing automation (marketing automation plus CRM) delivers a quantifiable competitive advantage. Building on this finding, the 2013 research focuses on content marketing, automation and ROI. It examines the practices and processes for managing and measuring content marketing to understand what leads to highly effective marketing and incremental revenue growth.
The survey was conducted in September with 323 B2B lead generation marketers worldwide. Participants were recruited by The Pedowitz Group and Demand Gen Report. The 29-page report can be downloaded here.
"This year’s landmark study indicates marketers are doing a good job of building the foundation for measurable content marketing by deploying marketing automation, but still have a way to go," said Jeff Pedowitz, President and CEO, The Pedowitz Group. "They still need to strategically focus content marketing while more fully developing a measurement capability. Those in the study who have already done this have a marked improvement in performance and revenue accountability."
"This research shows how highly effective and efficient marketers have built strengths in core capabilities and processes for managing and measuring content marketing," says Jim Lenskold, President of Lenskold Group. "Content marketing offers high potential for measured revenue contribution but this will remain untapped until marketing organizations address the culture and discipline that will improve processes."
