I’m happy to announce that we’ve teamed up with Marketo as our marketing automation solution for companies selling to Enterprise buyers.

Selling to Enterprises requires an omnichannel, multi-touchpoint approach. Unlike selling to small businesses, or selling simple and cheap products, enterprise sales are complex, with a long sales cycle that combines online and offline activities. They are based on multiple tactics, both inbound and outbound.

We all love traffic. No, not the bumper-to-bumper kind that we spend quality time with each morning. But the kind we find online that comes in increasing numbers after you write that clever blog post and share it across your social channels, or the kind that arrives at your carefully-built landing page after you begin an email campaign.
