What are the good trends in Market intelligence?
The trends in market intelligence revolve around companies moving from a focus on working faster to a focus on working smarter.
CRM and marketing automation tools have helped sales and marketing teams be more efficient. But companies are now looking to accelerate their business growth by using data to better target, better engage, and better close deals. Market intelligence gives them the data and insights they need to do all of those things, and more.
We’re also seeing companies from wider ranging industries take part in these trends, even beyond the early adopters. More traditional industries, like commercial real estate, banking, and manufacturing, are all seeing the value of market intelligence and taking advantage of it to gain a competitive edge and drive their revenues.
What is InsideView doing differently to increase its market share in India?
InsideView’s marketing efforts in India are geared towards evangelizing sales2.0 concept in the market. Two important themes of this concept are integration of social selling into traditional sales and marketing process and driving digital transformation of sales and marketing through CIO’s/CMO’s office.
We identify early adopters by participating in marketing events and partnering with prominent industry associations as knowledge partners. To lower the entry barrier, we offer pilots that clearly demonstrate the ROI of our solutions before the customer makes a longer-term investment. To handhold them further, we associate them with customer success managers that work to drive adoption of the new sales and marketing methodologies at the user level.
These concentrated efforts are supported by a wider coverage of digital media marketing campaigns on Google and LinkedIn. The prospects engaged from these channels are taken through a carefully planned nurturing campaign until they are ready to take next steps.
