Welcome to my new blog series, "Behind the Marketing," which is inspired by the classic VH1 series, "Behind the Music," but with a B2B marketing twist. Each month, I will spotlight a cool, eye-catching and thought-provoking campaign or project — and the marketers behind them.
The word "campaign" is defined and used in many ways by B2B marketers, and sometimes the term can be confused with what are truly single assets or disjointed activities. This confusion and a lack of concentration on buyer needs are contributing to declining metrics and engagement with targeted audiences.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are being baked or integrated into every aspect of B2B technology. Early adopters are seeing success leveraging AI to enhance and scale personalization efforts, offer content recommendations via owned channels and streamline the sales cycle.
