PLEASANTON, CA, March 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Because organizations today rely on trusted and objective education to determine how to apply technology to their business for a competitive advantage, Ventana Research has introduced a new market education service for technology providers. This new service blends research and experience-based market education with demand generation process and technology to nurture and educate technology buyers. This innovative approach is made possible through the business partnership with Left Brain Marketing (www.leftbrainmarketinginc.com), the leading marketing automation consulting firm that optimizes the demand generation and lead nurturing of business and consumer buyers. The deliverable of this joint offering is thought leadership, market education and marketing programs that generate marketing and/or sales qualified leads.
The idea of delivering relevant content via automation is rapidly becoming a priority for business to business technology marketing executives. One-off marketing programs require resources, content and timely follow up. An integrated 'market program in a box' outsources these key elements, and delivers leads that can be qualified and passed to sales. "We believe it requires extensive experience in providing education based on research combined with the knowledge of how to plan and execute automated demand generation to deliver this service," said Mark Smith, CEO & EVP Research. "Our online market education has been used for over six years to help technology vendors build new technology buyer relationships, and now by partnering with Left Brain Marketing, the process is automated and scored for better efficiency and quality, combined with the right packaging and pricing to maximize the market potential and investments of technology providers."
Ventana Research market education is drawn on years of research benchmarking thousands of organizations and real world experience in helping select and utilize technology in business that is used to create a portfolio of online industry white papers, podcasts, webinars, best practices and topically focused education portals. The market education spans across key business technology topics that are critical for daily operations to innovative use of technology across the CFO, COO and CIO organizations of any vertical industry or size of business. This highly sought after market education is one of the reasons that it was ranked the #1 analyst firm you can trust in enterprise software for 2009.
"Relevant content is major stumbling block for many clients. For years, the research based thought leadership content from savvy industry research analysts at Ventana Research have been used effectively in our clients market programs," said Malcolm Friedberg, principal at Left Brain Marketing. "Now by integrating our demand generation as a service with their market education program we can become a single source provider resulting in faster execution and lower cost per qualified lead."
Today Ventana Research announces the availability of this new market education and demand generation as a service offering. This simpler approach that can immediately double a technology marketing organizations capacity or can outsource the efforts to mitigate risk and reduce cost of existing efforts. The service includes the packaging of the market program and demand generation using lead nurturing and buyer intelligence to generate qualified sales opportunities. The program includes the complete management, creation and use of market education content, technology buyers lists using a multi-channel marketing approach using conventional e-mail, savvy search engine optimization (SEO), live and on-demand Internet events and social media activities.
