iNeoMarketing is transitioning to marketingIO, where we're partnering up with Asparian to create a complete Marketing Technology Service Provider: from strategy to implementation to support to application development to database management to... All facets are covered, no stone left unturned.
As you could have predicted, prediction is big these days. Big enough, in fact, that leading B2B practitioner Radius today announced new investment funding of $50 million.
That brings the total raised to date by the San Francisco-based company to $125 million, which CEO and cofounder Darian Shirazi told me via email was “almost as much as the [other] predictive providers combined.”
Those others include such competitors as Lattice Engines and Infer. Shirazi noted that they “built [predictive] models to help sales prioritize leads, then help marketing operations accelerate existing leads, and now they’re partnering with data providers to deliver net-new [customers] in existing markets.”
MarTech is the best tool available to bridge the gap between Sales and Marketing.
Watch for EVERYTHING to run through predictive engines.
Washington-based start-up IntellaSphere this week announced the launch of a low-priced, cloud-based marketing guidance center, and suite of associated tools, aimed primarily at the SMB segment.
IntellaSphere is very much a marketing tool. It does provide a platform for publishing and sharing content across the main social channels, and also serves to monitor relevant brand conversations across the network. Distinctively, it throws some key marketing functions into the mix. The Connections Relationship Management system integrates social activity with CRM, profiling online connections as prospects and tracking their behavior. In effect, it automatically builds a prospect database.
IntellaSphere starts at $9.95 per month for one user and five profiles. I noted that the highest priced package (for agencies) was priced at $299 per month, but only served 25 users--somewhat short of what even some medium-sized businesses might need. Worrall told me that the packages can be customized to add users and connections.

Instead of seeing marketing activities in isolation, marketers need an end-to-end view of buyer engagement. It’s not about the first “touch” that brings a prospect into the sales funnel, or the last “touch” before signing a deal. It’s about tracking all the touch points at which a prospect connects with your marketing programs, and measuring those multi-touch impacts.
So how do you do it? Here are four marketing analytics for demonstrating marketing’s ability to drive revenue:
Flow: Where are prospects connecting with your marketing programs? Balance: How many prospects are in each stage of the sales funnel? Conversion: What’s the ratio of movement from stage to stage? Velocity: What’s the rate of movement from stage to stage?

LinkedIn says it’s gotten the message: users are receiving too many emails from the professional social network. The company shared that it’s taking steps to reduce the number of emails sent and outlined two actions already being implemented.
In a blog post, LinkedIn’s senior director of product management for growth and life cycle, Aatif Awan, explained that his team is working to ensure emails users receive are “more relevant”. The company has already consolidated invitations to connect into a single weekly digest and has also aggregated all the updates from a user’s LinkedIn Groups into one email.
