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.
