What Do B2B Marketers Need To Know About Data Regulation?

1michaelbirdIn the past few decades, we’ve seen a massive change in technology. Today, I can buy a new wardrobe, order groceries, hail a ride, book a vacation and wire money from my bank account with a click or two on my mobile phone. And if I’m too lazy to even open my phone to check the weather, Alexa is there to help me know what to wear. While these developments have fundamentally made my personal life easier, the large-scale collection and monetization of data may be the most dramatic consequence of the digital age, especially for B2B businesses.

Balancing Personalization & Privacy Through Relevant, Transparent Communication

Personalization — to no surprise — continues to be a buzzword in marketing, in both the B2B and B2C industries. Yet B2B organizations are still trailing behind their B2C counterparts in terms of delivering a meaningful personalized experience.

To be honest, the only ones I did attend were because my husband dragged me to Auto and Motorcycle shows in NYC every year.

Why Sales Enablement Growth Has Stalled

downloadAccording to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 6.5 million jobs have been added to the U.S. economy since January 2017. Of those 6.5 million jobs, the number of sales enablement positions has grown drastically. In fact, Paul Krajewski, who has been tracking sales enablement job titles on LinkedIn for many years, claims that the number of people with sales enablement in their job title has nearly tripled since 2017. Based on those two data points, it’s safe to assume that the growth of sales enablement is skyrocketing. However, this may not necessarily be the case.
