shutterstock 148850267B2B marketers have long segmented their audiences by role, industry and company size, among other criteria. Some progressive B2B marketers are now adding “generation” to that mix as they look for ways to capture the attention of Millennial buyers as they rise through the ranks and move into decision-making roles.

Roughly one fifth (21%) of the participants in this year’s Content Preferences Survey are part of the Millennial generation, and that number will continue to grow.

The Seven Deadly Sins Of Marketing Automation

Hayley Mullen UberflipBy Hayley Mullen, Content and Community Manager, Uberflip

I’m tempted to start by calling marketing automation the “hot new trend,” but “trend” implies something fleeting — and believe me, marketing automation isn’t going anywhere.
