If having a website is an essential of modern business, why do so few make a measurable  contribution to results?

It's a common consensus that a website is an absolute must for doing business. If this is the case, why are the vast majority of B2B websites little more than expensive online brochures?

Posted by Phil Vallender on Dec 3, 2014

Is B2B content marketing going the way of banner ads and email marketing, and becoming the new spam?

The content avalanche. Content tipping point. Content saturation. Whatever you call it, there is more and more concern among B2B marketers that content marketing is being abused so much that it may cease to be effective. Is this really the case?


Make your B2B marketing more measurable

Posted by Phil Vallender on Nov 21, 2014

The first step toward growing your marketing ROI, is actually measuring it. 

Lots and lots of business owners struggle with the immeasurability of their marketing managers' plans. Without robust measures, you can never know what's really working and what isn't. In the absence of this knowledge, it's only human nature to zoom in and over analyse individual, even anecdotal results. This typically leads to frustration for both the business owner, who hopes to find order among the chaos and their marketing managers, who would like to be trusted to do what they are good at.

So, a big wish of business owners, though you may not realise it yet, is that marketing were much more measurable.
