Do you know your people as well as you know your customers? Your people’s expectations and the way they work is changing. Employees are more diverse, mobile and technologically-savvy than ever before. HR processes are changing from focusing on transactions to knowing and engaging people. Just as sales and marketing teams use data to develop actionable and informed insights about their customers, you need to do the same in HR to know your people. Everything, from attracting and keeping the best talent, to creating better workplace experiences and increasing employee engagement and productivity, depends on smarter decisions. These in turn rely on more actionable insights. These are only possible through accurate HR data and analytics. They are vital to address the people challenges you face, so you can make smarter decisions.
Engaging potential buyers in today’s complex and noisy B2B environment demands time, effort, and intelligence. All sellers can do is hope to guide them along their journey and influence their decisions. But even the best prospects are delaying interaction with sales and are often unresponsive to traditional marketing tactics. This is forcing organisations to use relevant, timely, and holistic data to guide interactions and communications across all channels.
You’re on the hook for more than just moving prospects through the funnel and delivering leads to sales. You’re responsible for managing the customer relationship. But how does it feel to the customer when that transition takes place? All too often, the first contact with sales feels like starting the conversation over again. And for customers who have already invested time and energy learning about a company and their products, this can be a jarring experience. Great composers use consistent melodic themes over the course of a piece. As marketers, it is our responsibility to ensure there is harmony and consistency over the full lifecycle of the customer relationship. But linking the conversations that marketing and sales have with prospects depends on your ability (and willingness) to share insights that are born from data.
