The time is now for all marketers to connect with their audiences and harness data that makes those connections more meaningful. I’m proud that our campaign is helping break the conventional misconception that this technology is out of reach.
Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
OutMarket, a provider of marketing automation software and services was announced as the winner of the Large In-House Marketing Campaign of the Year award at the second annual MarketingProfs B2B Bright Bulb Awards last week. The awards celebrate the excellence, innovation and brilliance of today’s B2B marketers.
OutMarket was a recipient among top brands such as Tripwire, Spiceworks and lifetime achievement award winner Seth Godin. The B2B Bright Bulb awards was judged by MarketingProfs staff and an external judging committee of marketing practitioners including Lee Odden of TopRank Online Marketing, Nick Westergaard of Brand Driven Digital and Doug Kessler of Velocity Partners
The Evolve Marketing campaign, part of the Spring ’14 release of OutMarket software, was innovative because it challenged marketers to stop accepting typical solutions and software and instead evolve to meet the changing landscape of marketing for more quantifiable success. The campaign also represents the largest evolution of OutMarket marketing software to date and also a tremendous shift in the industry.
The campaign included a marketing manifesto written by OutMarket CEO You Mon Tsang which included philosophies on making marketing automation available for everyone. The manifesto was presented on a branded, interactive microsite, which included a video, infographic and other marketing automation resources. A social contest was also executed as part of the campaign and encouraged marketers to share how they think marketing should evolve using the hashtag #EvolveMKTG.
The campaign utilized OutMarket’s clients, online audience, employee base, partners and influencers to launch the software and #EvolveMKTG campaign. Campaign tactics were multi-faceted and spanned social and traditional media as well as content marketing and multimedia.
“It’s about time that B2B marketers receive much-deserved recognition for their efforts, isn't it?” said Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer at MarketingProfs. “The quality (and quantity!) of entries was astounding this year. Celebrating these luminaires is just the first step to inspiring marketers to think outside of the box and to create marketing that people love.”
Since its inception, the OutMarket marketing team has strived to create award-winning marketing.
“The manifesto summarizes our belief that all marketers should have access to the incredible marketing technologies that have been only accessible to the large enterprise,” said OutMarket CEO You Mon Tsang. “The time is now for all marketers to connect with their audiences and harness data that makes those connections more meaningful. I’m proud that our campaign is helping break the conventional misconception that this technology is out of reach.”
