Digital Marketing Q & A with Matt Heinz

matt-heinzMatt Heinz started Heinz Marketing 6 years ago and is now one of the most well-known marketing gurus in Seattle. Matt and I had a chance meeting in the hallway at Market Leader one day and have stayed in touch since.  After running into each other at every marketing function in Seattle for years, we decided to do some business together and recently I had him come in and evaluate the marketing and sales processes at Optify.

As we rolled out our 2012 B2B Marketing Benchmark Report I was very happy to have Matt request a Q & A on the report and the data that we had gathered. Here’s how Matt kicked off the article.

Report: Analyzing 62 million web site visits for B2B marketing best practices

62 million visits. 350,000 leads. More than 600 B2B sites. That’s a lot of data. Pull together a report based on what it says about marketing best practices – what channels are working, which lead sources work best, which social channels are most important, etc. – and we’re talking some seriously valuable insights for B2B companies and marketers of all shapes and sizes.

Having access to that data, of course, is the hard part. Unless you happen to operate the Web and marketing systems for those 600+ B2B companies.That’s where Optify comes in. I highly recommend downloading a copy of their 2012 B2B Marketing Benchmark Report. Lots of great best practices, some which you’d expect but plenty more that were surprising and counter-intuitive to me.

I asked Doug Wheeler, CMO for Optify, to help me dig into more detail on some of the report’s findings. See the Q & A
