Your organization’s online presence was once a checkmark in a box.
Your website and digital outreach established your credibility by simply existing. Over time, you realized that your buyers wanted more than a digital billboard and email advertisements.
You began to publish educational content about your products and services and used that content capture the attention of online shoppers so you could transition them to your human sales or service team.
These teams added the value of human interaction to those transactions and hopefully converted the deal.

6. Learn and Adapt
In the end, the success of a marketing program comes down to meeting established goals. If those goals align with business objectives;for example,increasing participation from a segment more inclined to buy a specific service, then the program must be designed to capture and report those results. Our web analytics offering can be configured to do just that.

8. “Know The Difference Between User And Buyer Personas“.
Forbes had a very interesting topic within the article “How To Craft The Ideal User Persona For Your Brand” that talks about “Know The Difference Between User And Buyer Personas“.
Differentiating between user personas and buyer personas is very important. For enterprise products in particular, the buyer is often very different from the product user. For example, the buyer of a marketing data platform is likely a CMO concerned with how it will drive sales. However, the users, likely campaign owners or data scientists, are more concerned with usability. – Preethy Vaidyanathan, Tapad
