This week's show is called "How to Diversify Your Revenue Teams” and our guests are Dalton Van Hatcher who is the EVP of Growth & Partnerships at Felux and Madison Mobley, Head of Belonging, Inclusion, & Culture at Fairmarkit

Listen in on this important conversation about diversity.  We cover a lot.  We talk about the work involved in creating more belonging and inclusion and culture, both in the market as well as in companies.  We discuss the difference between allyship and advocacy and how that translates to companies overall, and especially in a sales and sales environment.

If you want more diverse marketing, you need to have more diverse teams creating that marketing. You need to have more diverse teams inside your organization, you need to make sure there's diversity in the agencies and contractors that you're hiring, to create and execute some of that marketing as well.

This week's show is called "A Former Military Officer Talks About Teamwork and Sales/Marketing Alignment” and our guest is Drew Chapin, CMO at Hyland.

We start with the backstory of how representing Xander Schauffele came to be and how this became part of the marketing mix for Highland. Drew also explains the X-Factor campaign and talks about the broader sales and marketing mix and how it has changed in the last 12 months.

He tells what he had to pivot to... and now as we see a little light at the end of the tunnel, what adjustments may become fixtures for his marketing mix moving forward.

We also talk about something that comes up a lot when we talk to CMOs and marketing leaders, especially with fast growing companies, and it's marketing's role in M&A. He shares a what that means for a marketing team.

When you're trying to drive growth, when you're trying to drive pipeline, acquisitions can be a distraction, and they can be an accelerator. sometimes both, sometimes one of the other.

Are Partnerships Your Next Growth Engine?

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-Cassidy.png

This week's show is called "Are Partnerships Your Next Growth Engine? ” and our guest is Brendon Cassidy, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Co-Sell.io.

It seems to me one of the still underutilized go-to-market efforts is partnerships. I ask Brendon to talk a little bit about what he's seen in the market.

I also ask "why have referrals been so difficult?" "Why has this been a perennial challenge for sales organizations, not just to do, but really do consistently at scale?"

Some people will use the term partner marketing and channel marketing interchangeably as if they're the same things. Brendon tells what he sees as the difference between having a partner referral introduction approach and what a lot of people think of the sales channel channel approach. 

This and a lot more!

The Perfect MarTech Stack?  How to Customize Software to Your Business

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-Ash-Vempati.pn...

This week's show is called "The Perfect MarTech Stack?  How to Customize Software to Your Business” and our guests are Subbu Vempati, CEO at Cuspera and Judy Ash, GTM Adviser and CMO.

The idea of selecting your MarTech stack and selecting the right sales and marketing tools is something most marketers are grappling with.

The problem is getting worse because there are more and more tools on a regular basis. I feel like if you go and talk to each of them, if you go to every tool's website or you see them in a trade show (eventually we'll see them at trade shows again), you go to their website and you hear from them-- everybody individually has a great story.

It sounds like a good pitch. Sounds like a good opportunity, interesting, but you can't buy 7,000 tools. So the idea of selecting which tools are important to you, which vendors are going to be best for your business and for your stack is a real challenge.

I ask Subbu to talk a little bit about why he decided to go down the route of creating a tool to help people make better technology decisions. 

We also talk about the importance of knowing what are the outcomes you are trying to achieve as well as what capabilities you need and how peer feedback can really help us.  Don't miss Judy's insights! 

This and A LOT MORE.  Listen in now and/or read the full transcript on the Heinz Marketing blog starting 3/15/21 at 6am PST.

Business Activity vs Lead Generation – Where True Demand Comes From

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-Shriber.png

This week's show is called "Business Activity vs Lead Generation – Where True Demand Comes From” with Justin Shriber, CMO at people.ai. We're talking about signals and trigger events you can pull out of your consolidated information to have better contextual conversations with your prospects.

We have complex buying journeys that not only take a long period of time, but also sit across multiple members of the buying committee. We also have multiple people on the selling team. So if you have an insight, it's not as binary as saying, "Well, let's put that into an email sequence," or, "Hey sales person, go mention this on your call." Ideally it's integrated across multiple channels in an appropriate sequenced way.

Justin and I talk about how sales and marketing are increasingly embracing that complexity and he shares some keys to helping companies integrate those insights and those triggers into that more complex nuanced sequence. 

Listen to the end to hear some great lessons he's taken away from COVID and from other experiences like it as well.  This and a lot more!

He Predicted Marketing Automation and ABM.  What’s Next?!

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-JonMiller.png

This week's show is called "He Predicted Marketing Automation and ABM.  What’s Next?!" and our guest is Jon Miller, CMO at Demandbase

I ask Jon how do we get beyond ABM? If this is a marketing exercise, you're neutering its impact from the beginning. 

The account-based revolution isn't over. 

There's a reason why everybody has adopted account-based, but traditional demand generation is fishing with a net, whereas account-based marketing is fishing with a spear.  You throw your net out, you see what you catch, you don't know what you catch versus you go after the big fish.

But I've been thinking a lot about the limitations of both ABM and fishing with a spear. And partly, it just comes down to...

It doesn't feel very good to get poked by a spear.

I think, fundamentally the fact that with traditional ABM, we would identify the accounts we really wanted to go after, and we'd go after them, regardless of whether they were interested in hearing from us or if it was the right time. And so, you end up having this world where we were doing traditional demand gen, which was great, because we only called people who had high scores and we thought really actually were ready to be called. With ABM, we were calling people regardless of whether they were interested.

Is there some way to merge these concepts?

Is there some way to bring the engage-ability of inbounds with the precision and targeting of ABM?

I think I've come up with a concept that I've been playing with a little bit, and that's the phrase of account-based experience, or ABX. And I think account-based experience is a customer-centric rethinking about how you go after accounts, but really rooted on that buyer experience.

It's about engaging with these modern buyers on their own terms, letting them be anonymous when they want to be anonymous, being really helpful and relevant when they're ready, always based on trust.

And the other cool part about ABX is it fixes the biggest problem in the ABM name, which is it had marketing in there. And as we all know, it's bigger than just marketing. It's got a hold on the market team.
