Help us highlight the proof of what works in B2B marketing
The Evidence report is our contribution to the perennial clamour for proof of what works in B2B marketing. First launched earlier this year, this report utilises real life examples from shortlisted B2B Awards campaigns to answer the most compelling questions facing B2B marketers – things like what does best practice in marketing and sales integration look like? And how do you find the correct balance between demand generation and brand development?
Now we’re looking for expert B2B marketing commentators to help us write the Evidence 2014 report. You’ll need to have a firm grasp of the topic area that you’ll be writing about, and be to write a 3000-word analysis of the shortlisted entries in a particular awards category highlighting the key trends and explaining what drove success.
You will also be invited to attend our Evidence event (taking place in March – more details to follow) where some of the trends identified will be explored in more detail, and may even be asked to speak.
Would you like to nominate yourself as an author? Please email me – the deadline for nominations is Friday November 22nd.
