Why Read This Report

Business-to-business (B2B) marketers collect mounds of data as they attempt to justify their value to the business — but still struggle to find effective ways to measure and demonstrate success. The problem: While B2B marketers obsess over customer acquisition metrics, they ignore monitoring the factors that make customers happy long after deals close. Attaining marketing measurement excellence is a trial-and-error process, but marketers who use quantitative methods to look beyond quarterly sales objectives will build brand, loyalty, and long-term business success faster and more consistently than their counterparts who ponder the pipeline.
