B2B business has a bad reputation for continuing to push traditional, lengthy, inhuman sales cycles on its prospective buyers. However, a variety of vendors and practitioners in the space are making the push to turn the B2B buying process into a conversational, personal experience. At this year’s Adobe Summit, in particular, we saw Marketo and Adobe unveil integrations with a variety of companies in an effort to better enable companies to offer frictionless customer experiences with a conversational approach.
At the company’s annual summit in Las Vegas, Marketo, an Adobe company, unveiled new partnerships with Demandbase, an account-based marketing platform, and LiveRamp, a customer identity platform. The partnerships aim to help mutual customers combine their individual and account-level data to better target prospective customers across multiple channels. It also deepens the relationship between both companies and the Adobe Ad Cloud, better positioning marketers to leverage their own data and insights garnered from Demandbase or LiveRamp to target and engage accounts.
On the opening night of the Adobe Summit, senior-level executives from Adobe and Marketo recognized their 2019 Adobe Experience Maker and Marketo Revvie Award winners. The Marketo Revvie Awards are designed to honor Marketo users who are driving business growth and positive buying experiences, while the Adobe Experience Maker Awards aim to recognize best-in-class Adobe Experience Cloud users.
