"LiveHive's group email automation extends the power of our deep content engagement analytics and gives organizations visibility into sales reps' activities, so they can quickly identify what approaches are most successful."

New market research demonstrates value of automated engagement sales technologies
In today's transformed buyer journey, personalization is crucial. Recent research conducted by Aberdeen Group shows that emerging sales engagement and automation tools that empower sales reps to deliver personalized email and content engagement can have up to 36% increase in lead conversion; and sales leaders who have analytics to understand their team's performance can result in upwards of a 57% lead conversion.
According to Aberdeen's Peter Ostrow, VP Sales Effectiveness Research, "Visibility into buyers' consumption of content is far from new; marketing automation platform users have leveraged this kind of functionality for years. What's changing today is that sales professionals are newly empowered with tools to gain similar insights. If they can function as 'micro-marketers,' they have a leg up on the competition, and are better able to personalize messaging down to the individual buyer level."
