Perhaps never in the history of commerce have businesses been required to adapt so fast to changing conditions as those driven by the introduction of the internet. Of the world's six billion inhabitants, over 1.9 billion use the internet.
The Internet of Things offers countless opportunities to grow your business, increase recurring revenue, and retain satisfied customers for longer periods of time.
If you can measure it, you can monetize it. And when you combine the vast amounts of big data available with the IoT, there are endless opportunities ($14.4 trillion worth!) for monetization across all industries and functions—from healthcare to B2B to automotive and nearly everything in between.
The following articles will help you maximize and monetize the Internet of Things.
As the number of tactics available to marketers has multiplied, it has become
harder and harder for many to determine where they should focus their resources.
Digital marketing, in particular, is becoming increasingly sophisticated and offers
opportunities for highly targeted and effective campaigns.
But as B2B marketers are designing integrated programs, many overlook a tactic
that has successfully generated leads and closed sales for decades: telemarketing.
Strategically deploying telemarketing to enhance engagement, nurture prospects
and improve your data can make the difference between revenue that goes to
your bottom line and revenue that goes out the door.
This kind of direct, one-to-one communication has a natural connection with the
B2B world, a field built around relationships and tightly targeted audiences.
The ability to create high-volume, high-relevance, and high-velocity content is very important for B2B marketers. The Adobe and Econsultancy B2B Digital Trends 2016-2017 report dives into all the latest digital trends and opportunities that are impacting B2B. So that you can set the new standards.

Business development and marketing programs have a tendency to underwhelm when it comes to actual results. As a result, we’re bombarded with SalesTech and MarTech apps endeavouring to plug the leaks. But these tools rarely tackle the core issues behind your lacklustre results. What’s needed is a fundamental change to your go-to-market approach. This ebook shows you what that change could look like, and describes how to make it happen.
Many B2B companies still select their prospects using static government data such as SIC codes, NAIC codes, and historical financial info. This is like playing Battleships with your sales and marketing budget, lobbing outbound approaches blindly over the wall in the hope of hitting potential buyers. There has to be a better way. Imagine if you could identify every business that could buy from you, and rank them by their likelihood to convert. This ebook shows you how.
There are potentially tens of thousands of buyers who don’t know that they need your products or services. They are your passive, silent audience. And, if you want to grow quickly, that audience is absolutely vital. You can’t reach them using personas, content marketing, or retargeting – so how do you find buyers who’ve never even heard of you? This ebook explains how to reverse-engineer their digital footprints and follow the trail back to the owner.
