The 3 Crucial Stages of an Effective Content Marketing Strategy

That is one of the findings of a study released Tuesday by NetLine, a B2B content syndication lead generation network that processes more than 700 thousand leads monthly across 300 industry sectors.

Oracle's Strategery


Watching Oracle’s cloud strategy roll out has given me renewed respect for its approach to the market. As a company that has been public for a long time, Oracle has displayed all the warmth of an anaconda. I have friends there, and they are not anacondas, but I hope they know what I mean. Oracle knows its business and it’s making money, and it does it unabashedly, so I can understand criticisms of its pricing model or high maintenance fees. However, another side of the business is coming into sharp focus as the cloud rollout gains momentum.

Marketo VP Mike Telem: ABM Lets You Dust Off Old Marketing Techniques


“Account-based marketing is all about targeting key accounts. It’s a strategy for marketers to focus most of their efforts on key accounts,” said Mike Telem, vice president of product marketing at Marketo. “In most B2B businesses, you have a small number of accounts that are the most valuable. So it makes perfect sense that focusing on those accounts provides a better return on investment. Instead of generating a lot of leads and then qualifying them, you define your key accounts and go after them.”

Former CEO Steve Ballmer on Wednesday called out Microsoft on finance reporting and its app strategy for Windows Phone. CEO Satya Nadella this summer laid out his vision for the company in an open letter to employees. It included a Windows 10 strategy founded on universal apps, software that could be scaled to Xbox One, Window Phones, tablets and desktops. That’s the wrong way to go — Windows Phone needs to support Android apps, Ballmer asserted during Microsoft’s annual shareholder’s meeting.
