"The balance of power has shifted in today’s consumer-focused world. The buyer holds all the cards."
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
LAROCQUE’s HCM marketing conference, InfluenceHR, now features HubSpot Chief Marketing Officer Mike Volpe as the event's keynote speaker on Oct. 28, 2013. “When you have one day to provide actionable advice,” said LAROCQUE President George LaRocque, “you need someone who’s changed the basic principles of marketing, getting results they could never dream about for their companies.”
Under Volpe's leadership, HubSpot's marketing has won more than 30 awards, been featured in over 20 marketing and business books, generated over 1 million leads, and grown the company from 10 customers to nearly 10,000 customers and over $50 million in revenue.
“Today’s marketing strikes a balance between the age-old concept of ‘the customer is always right’ and the reality that the customer is actually more savvy than ever before,” said Volpe. “I love the fact that InfluenceHR is going to give us a chance to dive into this discussion and come out with tactics on how to handle today’s buyers.”
InfluenceHR New York will continue to throw out the old model of three days of stale topics and dry speakers. Instead, the conference will provide busy executives with one day of actionable insight into the strategies that differentiate companies in this niche industry.
Volpe’s session, “Inbound Marketing: A Love Story,” will discuss how the balance of power has shifted in today’s consumer-focused world. The buyer holds all the cards. With that knowledge, some brands bend over backward to meet the demands of the highly fickle buyer. But can B2B companies really afford to do that? How does this consumer-focused trend impact B2B marketing?
What's love got to do with it?
