SalesPredict Offers Highly Automated, Highly Flexible Predictive Modeling

Customer Experience Matrix

SalesPredict is a perfect example: a small vendor with a powerful system that just launched earlier this year. Back in, say, 2008, a product like this would be big news. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that “predictive everywhere” is one of major trends in data-driven marketing.

Marketo Aims to Simplify Demand Generation

Customer Experience Matrix

As I wrote last week , demand generation vendors have a hard time differentiating their systems from each other. One company that has made a concerted effort is newcomer Marketo. Marketo has a one-word elevator speech: simplicity. That’s not to say Marketo is a simple product. Like every other demand generation vendor, Marketo has wrestled with how a branching, multi-step lead nurturing campaign can be made easy enough for non-specialist users.

Demand Generation Vendor Traffic Rankings

Customer Experience Matrix

Summary: Based on Web traffic rankings, new demand generation vendors with low prices are gaining market presence. But Eloqua , Silverpop and Marketo remain industry leaders. Last November, after much consideration of alternatives , I settled on Alexa three-month Web traffic rankings as a reasonable way to measure the relative market presence of demand generation vendors. I revisited that data today, adding a few new vendors and dropping some of the very minor ones.

My little tour of demand generation vendors landed at Pardot just before Thanksgiving. As you’ll recall from my post on Web activity statistics , Pardot is one of the higher-ranked vendors not already in the Raab Guide to Demand Generation Systems. What really distinguishes the Enterprise vendors is the ability to limit different users to different tasks.

B2B Marketing Thought Leadership: Tom Pick

Modern B2B Marketing

According to a recent study by MarketingSherpa, 80% of B2B purchase decision makers say that they found the vendor when they were ready to buy, rather than responding to a vendor finding them. Companies need to have the right tools in place (and Marketo's marketing automation software system is one of the best) and then have the right processes in place to use those tools.

Low Cost Systems for Demand Generation

Customer Experience Matrix

My new obsession with Twitter (follow me as @draab) has led to several messages from people who seemed to have trouble choosing between Eloqua and Marketo. This is a bit perplexing, since those products are at the opposite ends of the spectrum: Marketo being relatively low cost / limited functionality / easier to learn, and Eloqua being higher cost / richer functionality / takes more training. Pardot : another pretty powerful product; see my blog review from December 2008.

Demand Generation Implementation Survey - Background Results

Customer Experience Matrix

As of April 29, I've received 40 responses, of which I've discarded two as incomplete and two because they related to vendors I considered irrelevant ( Zoho and Ad Giants PitchRocket). One measure of this is the distribution of vendors reported by the respondents, which clearly doesn't reflect the installed base of the industry. Obviously, however, the quantities are too small and sample bias too significant to break out results by vendor.)
