CONTENT TYPE: Master Class Lesson | TOPIC: Demand Generation
For more than a decade, marketers have thrown around the term "data-driven." But what does that even mean? It's not just being a report monkey, nor is it simply iterating specific tactics based on last month's lag indicators. Kenda Macdonald breaks it all down in this quick and dirty lesson.
The buyer's mind isn't a mystery. (It's true! There's research!) This lesson on buyer psychology covers what's happening in the buyer's brain during their purchase journey. Because once you understand how consumers think and what increases reward activation, you can start formulating an evidence-based demand generation approach.
If you want to succeed at demand generation automation, you can't just tackle a little awareness here and a smidge of deal closing there. In this lesson, you'll learn a framework for planning the entire purchase journey, touching the four components of life cycle marketing—attract, engage, sell, and wow. Get ready to maximize customer lifetime value (CLV).
If you think of progressive profiling as gathering new demographic data collected using signup forms, you're only partially correct. This lesson covers how to use modern, effective progressive profiling rooted in psychographics, not just demographics, so you're tracking how your consumers speak to you through their behavior.
Content is the lifeblood of your demand gen automation program. But odds are there are things you're not getting right. Learn why content is so important to demand generation automation, how to use it to move consumers through the awareness stages, and which content programs work the best for each life cycle marketing phase.
Demand generation marketers aren't just responsible for generating leads and warming them to marketing qualified lead (MQL) status—they're always thinking of conversions. Sales campaigns are structured communications designed to get people to purchase. Learn how to qualify and move customers through the sales pipeline using this campaign type.
This "Put it to Work" session takes you into the nuts and bolts of creating messages that work and getting your campaigns running with perfect timing toward your destination—conversions. While this lesson walks you through the process using Hubspot, you do not need to use Hubspot as your automation platform to benefit from this lesson; most MAPs work similarly. (This lesson includes templates listed under "Supplementary Resources.")
