My Top Take-Away From MarketingProfs b2b Forum

  
  
  

As a Demand Gen/Marketing junky, if there was one thing I came away with from MarketingProfs b2b Forum it's this:

Go to the next MarketingProfs event they host!

It was so full of nuggets, all I can say is to go read as many of the blogs as you possibly can on the topic. There is a thread of blog articles on MarketingProf's, a page of MarketingProfs speaker's social media contact info on my blog, and the whole twitter feed of #mpb2b hash tag comments.

MarketingProfs Speakers - Link List

  
  
  

Wanting to know more about the various speakers from MarketingProfs this past week, I started looking some of them up on the web, subscribing to their blogs, checking them out on LinkedIn and trying to find them on Twitter. After finding a few, I thought it might be valuable for others.

Speaker's blogs are listed if I could find them, otherwise their company link is there. If anyone has more accurate info, feel free to share it. If you're a speaker and want to share links to your presentations or handouts, that would be great too. Just send me the links.

Thanks to all of you for a great conference!

#mpb2b - MarketingProfs Highlight Tweets From Day 2

  
  
  

Yesterday I posted my favorite tweets for the day. Tuesday's MarketingProfs b2b Forum was a bit more tiring, but just as filled with content. Again, the twitter feed was loaded. Find it with hashtag #mpb2b. Below are today's collection of what I gleaned as cream of the crop tweets.

BDSolutions: Apparently the proper term 4 "above the fold" in email is "prescroll"--& only 11% of email users venture beyond. Use ur 600px wisely! #mpb2b

_mg_6348_normal

jaybaer: Interesting that @kdpaine is down on Linkedin. I see a lot of potential for Linkedin, especially for B2B. Answers, groups, messaging #mpb2b

Rsz_3dsc01861-2_normal

damphoux: as you target further up the title chain, make the emails shorter, simpler, something that a CxO can read on an iPhone #mpb2b

#mpb2b - MarketingProfs Highlight Tweets From The Day

  
  
  

Today's MarketingProfs b2b Forum was great. Picked up lots of tidbits. Good news is that much of it is documented on twitter under hashtag #mpb2b. I thought I would collect a few during the day that stood out. More tomorrow.

MarketingProfs b2b Forum - The Sessions I'll Attend

  
  
  

Been a busy few weeks with conferences. The CMO Club Summit and Sales 2.0 Conference were just a couple weeks ago, and this week is MarketingProfs b2b Forum in Boston. I'll be doing some live tweeting from the conference with hashtag #mpb2b, just like from the other two (you can look at conference tweets here: #cmoclub and here: #sales20). Thank you to MarketingProfs and Anne Handley (personal blog) for what should be a stellar event.

Just thought I would highlight the conference schedule, which is so chock full of marketing value, I wish I was bringing a whole team of Green Leads' folks to attend them all. Unfortunately, I'll have to do my best to attend the most relevant sessions on my own.

  • Eight Secrets to Delivering Top B2B Demand Gen Results
  • Tie between: The 2009 Economic Impact on B2B Marketing Budgets & Practices, and a concurrent session, Create a Winning Targeted Accounts Strategy
  • Make Every Investment Count: The Measure of Marketing
  • Putting Measurement into Action to Improve Leads, Conversions & ROI
  • Tappas Tweetup - (find me and say hello)
  • Email Workshop
  • Using a Multi-Touch Approach to Engaging and Nurturing Sales Prospects
  • Creative Rules for Integrated Campaigns that Get the Attention of Your Prospects

Looking forward to meeting lots of new folks, sharing great thoughts, and seeing some old friends. More later.
