  2. 2. 2© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Change by design. That was the theme of the 2017 ANA Masters of B2B Marketing Conference. Joined by hundreds of attendees, experts from top brands and agencies from across the industry came together to share how they’re focusing on and realizing the value of purposeful change. Ahead, we’ll cover nine of the shrewdest sentiments. Read on! CHANGE BY DESIGNCHANGE BY DESIGN
  3. 3. 3© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “I’m not a believer in digital marketing. I’m a believer in marketing in a digital world.” — MATT PRESCHERN, CMO AT HCL AMERICA, INC.
  4. 4. 4© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. The industry has been heavily focused on digital, but it’s important to remember that all experiences with your brand, both offline and online have impact. Digital savviness is necessary, but marketers should build rich brand experiences across customer touchpoints.
  5. 5. 5© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “We need to get better at unlearning.” — MARK BONCHEK, CHIEF EPIPHANY OFFICER AT SHIFT THINKING
  6. 6. 6© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Humans, by nature, are creatures of habit. But as Bonchek noted at the conference, “Concepts that once were powerful no longer apply.” What worked 20 years ago probably won’t work now, at least not on its own. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things as you learn how to be a better 21st-century marketer.
  7. 7. 7© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “Be real. Be courageous. Lead.” — TAMARA MCCLEARY, CEO OF THULIUM.CO
  8. 8. 8© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Sales won’t do it. IT will help, but they can’t drive the mission. So it is the marketing team who needs to take the bull by the horns and drive the brand into tomorrow. Take control now and become the leaders your company needs in order to succeed.
  9. 9. 9© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “There is no B-to-B or B-to-C. It’s H-to-H: human to human.” — BRYAN KRAMER, CEO OF PUREMATTER BRAND MARKETING
  10. 10. 10© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Whether you play in the B-to-C or B-to-B space, marketing is marketing. And great marketing requires a human touch. Embrace the human side of your brand and share it with the world. Be engaging, personal, and, most importantly, embrace the imperfections that help make your brand what it is.
  11. 11. 11© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “Have an audacious vision.” — PRAKASH NEDUNGADI, GROUP HEAD FOR CUSTOMER INSIGHTS AND BRAND DEVELOPMENT AT THE ADITYA BIRLA GROUP
  12. 12. 12© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Do not ignore the power of a long-term, lofty vision. Keep an eye on today, but always be cognizant of a five- or 10-year plan for your brand. Aim high with long-term goals and ensure the team is always working toward them.
  13. 13. 13© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “You’ve got to make a lot of deposits before you can ever think of taking a withdrawal.” — JILL ROWLEY, EVANGELIST AND STARTUP ADVISOR
  14. 14. 14© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. The days of easy sells are long gone. Now brands must build deep, meaningful relationships with prospects before ever asking for their business. Become an important voice in a prospect’s world by leading in thought and action and providing great content that drives connections.
  15. 15. 15© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “Marketing isn’t just about making people cry.” — JAMES THOMAS, CMO AT ALLOCADIA
  16. 16. 16© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Powerful ads that cause an emotional reaction are great. But if they don’t result in sales, the C-suite won’t care. In a world where budgets are stretched thin and marketing is often seen as a cost center, it’s imperative to collect data and regularly prove the value of your work.
  17. 17. 17© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “If we are standing still, we are falling behind.” — LAUREN MCCADNEY WILLIAMS, DIRECTOR OF MARKETING DELIVERY AT CDW
  18. 18. 18© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Somebody somewhere is sprinting to innovate. If you’re not doing the same, you will be left behind. Challenge the old guard, break your routine, and make it a point to try new things and invest in new technologies.
  19. 19. 19© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. “B-to-B is not boring-to-boring.” — LEE ODDEN, CEO OF TOPRANK MARKETING
  20. 20. 20© Copyright 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved. Finally, have fun! There is no reason why B-to-B has to be buttoned up and sterile. No matter your product or service offerings, there are interesting stories within your brand. Find and share them with the world in lively, energetic ways.
