Acquisition Accelerates Activate's Full-Funnel Demand-to-Pipeline Demand Generation Services and Adds High-Value Sales Appointment Setting Capabilities
SAN FRANCISCO, June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --
Activate MarketingServices (ACTIVATE), a high-growth provider of demand generation for B2B brands, announced today the acquisition of lead gen and appointment setting firm Green Leads. The acquisition bolsters ACTIVATE's position as a top-tier, preferred demand generation provider by adding Green Lead's proven track record of high-quality lead generation and it's U.S.-based global Sales Development Rep (SDR) and appointment generation resources. Additionally, the acquisition delivers Green Leads additional depth providing fuel for accelerated expansion across all product lines. Both companies have a pristine reputation in serving and engaging Information Technology (IT) and business decision makers.
"Our B2B marketing customers are working more closely than ever before with their sales colleagues to generate qualified new business opportunities," said Martha Schwartz, Co-founder, Co-Chairperson and Chief Growth Officer at ACTIVATE. "The Green Leads team and resources, including its talented team of 50+ global SDRs and proven ability to jump start meaningful prospect conversations, adds a critical capability for our customers – high-value sales engagements."
The ACTIVATE acquisition addresses significant requirement shifts for B2B marketing and sales teams as the B2B buying-selling process evolves. B2B buyers spend 17% of the buying process with traditional company sales reps according to Gartner. With this shift in buyer-sales face time, B2B marketers are playing a much larger role in the entire customer lifecycle, from account identification to lead generation to closed-won business. ACTIVATE's acquisition of Green Leads adds more advanced lead gen capabilities and new appointment generation services to its proven portfolio of full-funnel demand solutions to address these shifts.
