Workshop "B2B Content Marketing Mapping: Como Criar Conteúdos Relevantes e com Impacto nas Vendas" Quidgest


Na sequência do White Paper http://www.slideshare.net/MariaSpinola/content-marketing-mapping-o-que-necessita-saber-para-criar-contedos-que-vendem-b2b (que escrevi em Janeiro de 2011) a Quidgest (http://www.quidgest.pt/) desafiou-me a preparar e apresentar um Workshop sobre o tema "B2B Content Marketing Mapping"

Aceitei esse desafio, e é por esse motivo que estou a enviar esta mensagem.
Ou seja, para informar e convidar-lhe a estar presente - no próximo dia 10 de Março de 2011, nas instalações da Quidgest em Lisboa - no Workshop “B2B Content Marketing Mapping: Como Criar Conteúdos Relevantes e com Impacto nas Vendas”.

Porque deve estar presente neste Workshop?

  1. Porque as empresas necessitam de conhecer e adaptar-se ao comprador empresarial actual. Devido à Internet e às redes sociais, os compradores empresariais querem, por exemplo:
    • Ter acesso a informação útil que responda aos seus problemas específicos.
      “Os compradores actuais esperam que as empresas conheçam e compreendam os seus desafios específicos.”
      - "“How Customers Choose Solution Providers, 2010: The New Buyer Paradox”, ITSMA
    • Não querem ser pressionados por comerciais. É necessário usar modelos de venda "SMART Selling".
      "Aproximadamente dois terços dos potenciais clientes efectuam as suas próprias pesquisas online e estão a evitar os contactos dos comerciais – principalmente nas primeiras fases do processo de compras empresarial" – “How Customers Choose Solution Providers, 2010: The New Buyer Paradox”, ITSMA.
    • Querem sentir que têm poder de escolha e o controle do processo de compra. O objectivo deve ser o de aumentar a confiança dos compradores.
      “Cerca de 85% dos entrevistados responderam que conteúdos, que demonstram liderança de pensamento, são determinantes no processo de selecção de fornecedores a considerar” - ITSMA, 2010

  2. Porque o Marketing e as equipas comerciais necessitam de adaptar-se a novos desafios e exigências, tais como:
    • Criar conteúdos relevantes capazes de atrair, converter e manter clientes.
      A facilidade, em termos tecnológicos, na criação de blogs, vídeos, webminars, websites, white papers, case studies, etc., permite que qualquer empresa crie e distribua conteúdos. No entanto, de acordo com o estudo de mercado "Content Connects” da UBM TechWeb, quase metade dos inquiridos NÃO concorda com a afirmação "os fornecedores disponibilizam informação técnica, visão de mercado e case studies úteis”.
    • Criar leads qualificados, e efectuar a sua gestão ao longo de todo o processo de compras empresarial.
      As equipas comerciais não querem leads em quantidade, mas sim em qualidade.

      Para além disso, no passado, após o Marketing passar o lead à equipa comercial, era esta que efectuava a sua gestão, até à venda. Actualmente, a gestão de leads é uma actividade que tem de ser efectuada simultaneamente pelo Marketing e pela equipa comercial.
      Por exemplo, quando o comercial detecta que um potencial cliente, que aparentemente já havia decidido efectuar a compra, de repente "desaparece" necessita de fornecer a informação, que possui, sobre esse potencial cliente ao Marketing. Deste modo, o Marketing pode enviar, a esse contacto, os conteúdos adequados com o objectivo de "o trazer de volta", e posteriormente entregar a gestão do mesmo novamente à equipa comercial.
    • Muitas empresas estão a "exigir" provas do valor das iniciativas de Marketing. Devido às tecnologias actuais, o apuramento do ROI das iniciativas do Marketing está facilitado. Por exemplo, é mais complicado medir o ROI de iniciativas efectuadas através de canais físicos, do que o ROI das iniciativas através dos canais digitais.
      Por isso, é natural que o Marketing se sinta pressionado a apresentar resultados, não com base em "especulação/previsões", mas com base em resultados reais e mensuráveis.
      "Cerca de um terço das decisões de compra é baseado em conteúdos"
      – "Content Preferences of IT Decision Makers and How Marketers Can Increase Engagement and Relevancy Using Professional Content", UBM TechWeb.

Disruptions cause revenue loss, unhappy users, impacts brand reputation etc.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in.

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a ...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
