The Search for B2B Marketing Superstars
Conference awards hashtag for Twitter: #SM20award
In one of the Modern B2B Blog’s most popular posts, Jon Miller encouraged marketers to tout (among other things) awards as part of a strategy to appeal to buyers who are stressed about budgets. If it’s been awhile since your last Oscar win, don’t worry. A heavyweight opportunity to prove your value to prospects and clients has just arrived with the recent announcement of the Sales & Marketing 2.0 Awards. These will be doled out on the final day (Nov 9) of the Sales & Marketing 2.0 Conference at The Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco. This is a powerhouse event for marketers – if you’re unfamiliar with it, check out last year’s post-conference blog report from conference host Gerhard Gschwandtner.
If you think you have what the judges are looking for, go to www.sales20conf.com/collaboration/awards to apply online to win any (or all – there is no limit to the number you can apply for) of the following awards:
