Around 70% of B2B technology vendors now use intent data for prospecting, and a bevy of companies now promise to harvest that information and transform it into viable insights for enterprise GTM teams. Intent data solutions from market leaders like Bombora, Intentsify, Leadsift and others have allowed marketing teams to rapidly evolve their ABM programs from mass ‘spray and pray’ tactics, to more targeted, personalized outreach campaigns. While sales and marketing teams have used intent data to focus and accelerate their prospecting efforts, many of these organizations still struggle to get the most out of their intent data investments.
If the intent data is identifying in-market accounts, why aren’t all organizations using intent data for outbound efforts seeing huge jumps in responses? Why are at least 45% of organizations as reported by DemandScience challenged with converting intent leads to actual revenue? Why does DemandScience’s study also show that 77% of organizations using intent data experience intent data anxiety and feel overwhelmed using intent data to capture high-intent, high quality leads?
Kristina Jaramillo, President of Personal ABM shares the challenges that companies have with Bombora, Intentsify, DemandScience and other intent data providers.
