Marketers are always looking to generate more leads, but many leads don’t receive sufficient nurturing to realize their full potential.
In a recent webinar, titled Always-On” Marketing: Reaching Prospects Anywhere With Display Advertising And Marketing Automation, representatives from Bizo highlighted reasons why lead nurturing is a necessity for B2B marketers and outlined techniques to boost nurture performance.
Bizo reported $12.4 million in revenue in Q4, a record-setting quarter for the company. The B2B marketing automation vendor also posted $38.3 million in bookings in 2013, nearly a 75% increase over the previous year.
The launch of new subscription-based products such as Bizo for Marketing Automation drove much of Bizo’s success throughout 2013. The company also added 365 new customers, including Hyatt Hotels, DropBox and HootSuite.
Bizo, a provider of business audience marketing technology, has raised $12.5 million in venture debt financing from City National Bank. This round of funding puts Bizo at approximately $30 million in total equity and debt capital. Bizo plans to use the funding to continue its expansion, further build out its technology platform and make strategic investments, according to company officials.
According to Russell Glass, CEO of Bizo, the financing ensures the company is “well capitalized to maintain its leadership position in the B2B online marketing space and is well-positioned to make strategic investments as we continue to build a thriving business.”
Bizo, a provider of business audience marketing technology, announced the launch of Bizo Data Solutions, an extension of the company's existing digital marketing platform to help B2B companies to better understand and more efficiently engage target audiences across their entire marketing funnel.
Bizo Data Solutions works with a number of marketing technology platforms, including specific integrations with Adobe AudienceManager, Salesforce, Eloqua, BlueKai, [x+1], Google Analytics and others.
