B2B marketers are standing at the crossroads between opportunity and challenge. The C-suite wants more accountability for marketing spend, but at the same time, the multi-channel sales cycle is becoming increasingly complicated. A growing cadre of B2B marketers is responding to this tension by rethinking B2B marketing basics such as KPIs, budgets and customer journeys. These marketers are part of a trend known as Revenue Marketing. Revenue Marketing is a systematic approach to identifying the drivers and barriers to revenue, rigorously measuring them, and then pulling the marketing levers using data, analytics and automation to optimize marketing ROI and top-line growth.

Our report shows that Revenue Marketers clearly define and document the revenue cycle, they centralize data, integrate their tech stack, and automate workflows. As a result, they have a higher confidence in hitting their revenue goal.
