DemandGen Report (DGR) has announced additional speakers for its first annual Content2Conversion Conference, to be held Tuesday, April 24, 2012, at the Times Center in New York City.
Executives added to the list of presenters include: Matthew Papertisan, Research Director, Demand Generation Strategies at SiriusDecisions; Elle Woulfe, Senior Marketing Manager at Eloqua; and Ruth Stevens, eMarketing expert and author. The C2C Conference was developed to provide marketers with optimal resources to strategize, develop and promote collateral that drives lead and demand generation.
Some of the highlights from these new speakers and session will include:
Building on SiriusDecisions’ foundational work in the area of demand creation, Papertisan’s session will highlight the vital need for marketers to understand stages of the buying journey, as well as strategies to formulate optimal content across buyer types.
Stevens, author of “Maximizing Lead Generation: The Complete Guide for B2B Marketers,” will share real world examples of optimal content for both lead generation and lead nurturing campaigns, as well as how to address buyer pain points effectively.
Woulfe will reveal during her session how content, used in conjunction with lead scoring, nurturing and other automated processes, can be used to advance the buyer's journey. Eloqua recently released a presentation titled “From Content To Customer,” which highlights how marketers can use “pre-funnel” creative content and “in funnel” functional content to drive conversions.
These industry thought leaders join keynote speaker and author Ardath Albee; Jim Lenskold, President of The Lenskold Group; and Jeanne Hopkins, VP of Marketing for HubSpot, for the daylong event to discuss content development tools and best practices.
