"This is the only conference dedicated to the B2B industry, focusing on content development and execution strategies as well as ways to use content to drive demand."
Demand Gen Report recently announced key speakers and highlights for this year's event, including:
*The winners of the fourth annual Killer Content Awards, recognizing organizations that have raised the bar in content marketing strategies and campaigns. More than 100 nominations were received this year, a 20% increase from last year. Since its inception, the Killer Content Awards SlideShare has received nearly 58,000 views. Four 2015 KCA winners will present at the B2B Content2Conversion conference next week, sharing insights from their successful campaigns. They include:
- GLASSDOOR: Alicia Garibaldi, Senior Content Marketing Manager, Multi-Touch Campaign winner
- DELL: Jolene Melancon, Marketing Automation Manager, Nurture Campaign winner
- EMC: Terri Schmidt, Director, Online Merchandising, Buyer Focused Content winner
- CISION: Jeremy Barlow, Marketing Automation Manager, Influencer Campaign winner
*Laura Ramos, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, will share how marketers can add contextual storytelling into content marketing initiatives during her session at the conference. Compelling content that entertains and educates its target audience can often be more successful than other generic content shared during a campaign. It is crucial that content marketers align with their buyers and add context to the content they are delivering to prospective buyers. Without this alignment, content marketing initiatives will never have a major impact on buying decisions.
*Ardath Albee, CEO of Marketing Interactions, will outline how marketers can develop content and strategies that drive results. Albee will address topics in her new book, Digital Relevance, discussing strategies for creating content that stays relevant to buyers, influencers, and customers throughout the entire customer lifecycle and across all channels.
Hosted by Demand Gen Report, the B2B Content2Conversion Conference is an educational event focused on strategies for mapping, developing and utilizing content marketing to nurture the buyer relationship and enhance conversions.
