    Turbocharge Your Growth Engine In Today’s Economy, With Forrester’s John Arnold

    Turbocharge Your Growth Engine In Today’s Economy, With Forrester’s John Arnold

    We’re wrapping up Season 9 of the B2BMX Podcast today, with a very special replay from our friends at Forrester. During the B2B Sales & Marketing Exchange, Principal Analyst John Arnold took the keynote stage to share how B2B organizations can turbocharge their growth engines in today's economy. 

    It’s no secret that 2023 was a rough year for B2B marketing and sales professionals, and these struggles may or may not have bled into 2024. Layoffs, budget cuts and a heavy “do more with less” mentality — not to mention changing buyer behaviors, economic uncertainty and fierce competition — had marketers heads spinning. But according to Arnold, a better revenue engine won’t be enough to grow your B2B organization. 

    In this episode, Arnold will outline three ways B2B orgs can fuel growth in economic downturn, including: 
    Focusing on the value realization gap;Aligning the right teams around buyer value; andThe effective adoption of emerging technology. Tune in to learn how to get your revenue engine fueled up and running smoothly. Be sure to catch up on all the episodes from Season 9 before we kick off Season 10 later this year!

    Let’s face it, your B2B company is not really a household name…yet. Unlike, say, Doritos, your logo likely wouldn’t get recognized if it came without the title of your company; and that’s OK!

Long story short: We can do better. 

    During this candid fireside chat at the 2023 B2B Sales & Marketing Exchange, Haeri and Takagi shared their perspective on how to better generate demand, reach your addressable market and focus on understanding the incentives and objectives of the entire go-to-market team.

    Attract qualified hand raisers with demand efforts; Identify characteristics of audiences across channels;Fit retargeting into the bigger picture of your marketing strategy; Use Connected TV in your targeting and retargeting efforts; andGet internal teams to care about brand building. Haeri and Takagi did not hold back during this conversation.
