Today I’ve put together a list of vendor blogs.

Ranking the Demand Generation Vendors by Popularity (Yes, Life Really Is Just Like High School)

Customer Experience Matrix

So far the original list of Eloqua , Vtrenz , Marketo , Manticore Technology and Market2Lead has proven a good set of choices. Basically they suggest that Marketbright , Pardot , Marqui and ActiveConversion , are all pretty much comparable in market presence to Manticore and Market2Lead. spoke with Marketbright and Pardot this week and connected with ActiveConversion some time ago.

The remaining five vendors in my data (Pardot, Marketo, Eloqua, Manticore Technology, and Genius) have 69% of their clients in the small and mid-size segments.

Another Estimate of B2B Marketing Automation Revenue

Since these are also fast-growing firms, let’s use a figure of $120,000 per employee, which happens to be the average for Neolane, HubSpot, Marketo and Infusionsoft. These include ActiveConversion, Act-On Software, Genoo, LeadLife, eTrigue, Marqui, and others. I do have client counts and pricing for most of them; some rough calculations yield a figure of $10 million.

If you read this blog regularly (and who doesn't?), you know that I see a lot of demand generation systems. As a result, they tend to be quite certain that they have made the right decisions and are correspondingly unreceptive should I suggest otherwise.

B2B Marketing University: For Now, Marketing Automation and CRM Are Still Separate

Customer Experience Matrix

The movement is coming mostly from the marketing automation side, presumably because there is more money to gain by moving into sales from marketing systems than vice versa: - marketing automation systems for small businesses ( Infusionsoft , Office Autopilot , Net-Results , ActiveConversion , etc.) typically include a CRM option for clients who don’t want to pay for a separate Salesforce.com or other license - firms aimed at larger installations ( Marketo , Eloqua , Pardot , Genius.com ) are providing widgets that give sales people direct access to marketing automation information. 3.

Pardot Offers Refined Demand Generation at a Small Business Price

Customer Experience Matrix

By comparison, limited versions cost $1,500 per month for Marketo and $1,000 for Manticore Technology , and both charge $2,400 per month for their cheapest complete offering. Note: other SMB-oriented vendors including ActiveConversion and OfficeAutoPilot also have entry pricing in the $500 per month range, although neither publishes the details.) My little tour of demand generation vendors landed at Pardot just before Thanksgiving. So I was quite curious to see what they had to offer. What I found was intriguing. Pardot and other SMB systems don’t just offer a few simple features.

Demandbase: A New Twist In The Lead Management Automation Market

delicious b2bmarketing

would put the lead management automation crop here: Eloqua, Loopfuse, Manticore Technologies, Market2Lead, Marketo, and Vtrenz. Posted by: C Jeffers | August 27, 2008 at 11:02 AM Hi Laura, Thank you for mentioning ActiveConversion in your post. I'd like to point out that we are more in the lead management category, rather than 'push' or outbound side that you had us on. In fact, 88% said Web sites were important in helping them decide what to buy. B2B marketers looking for ways to turn their Web sites into demand generation tools have some new solutions to consider.

B2B Lead Management Market Heats Up

delicious b2bmarketing

Most recently, Marketo just announced their lead management solution. The problem is: these platforms are heavy on campaign design, execution, and reporting and light on lead management. 4) “Pure play” lead management – this group is lead by Eloqua , but there are a LOT of firms throwing their hat into this ring including Vtrenz, Hubspot, Manticore, Market2Lead, Marketo, LoopFuse, einsof, iHance, Precience, among many others. work for a company called Pardot, which offers a service similar to Marketo. But does the B2B need the same platform components as B2C?) Thanks again.
