Turn buying signals into opportunities
There’s a lot of excitement among marketers around intent data. And there’s still significant confusion. Like other categories, with intent there are nuances and complexities that go-to-market teams need to understand and consider. What’s fine for one group can easily be meaningless to another. What’s good for upstream use cases may offer little value downstream.
In the Intent track, you’ll explore this still-evolving category, examine what’s there today and realize what’s still needed to support your GTMs. Whether for sales, marketing or strategy, together we’ll investigate the key questions and provide the clear answers you’re looking for.

The IT B2B Marketer vs. The IT Pro: Does Buyer Perception Mirror Reality?
Brent Boswell, Senior Vice President, International (TechTarget)
Ben Bulpett, Senior Director Global Field and Partner Marketing (Algolia)
John Rogers, Group IT Director (Punter Southall Group)
Perception acts as a lens through which we view reality. Our perceptions influence how we focus on, process, remember, interpret, understand, synthesize, decide about, and act on reality. In doing so, our tendency is to assume that how we perceive reality is an accurate representation of what reality truly is.
From April through July 2022, we ran our annual TechTarget Media Consumption study and asked a portion of the survey to 150 IT B2B Marketing Managers and Directors to see their perception of how IT buying teams move and research throughout the buy cycle. In this presentation, we look at the results and answer the question, “Are marketers’ assumptions of the buyer behavior really a mirror of what buyers’ are doing?”
Join us as we review this new European research and then talk directly to a panel of IT Directors on their experiences of the buying process.

Many revenue teams see the value of intent data in an ABM strategy. If you’ve dabbled with using intent data to drive some targeted advertising efficiencies, that’s a good start. But that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fueling ABM results through intent data. Join TechTarget’s CMO John Steinert as he looks closely at what real ABM success should mean ($$$) and how real intent data can support better content, better engagement, better conversion, better opportunity identification and even better opportunity creation.

Unlike “slow twitch” firmographic, demographic, and technographic data that changes quite slowly, “fast twitch” prospect-level intent data changes all the time. That’s part of why campaign people and SDRs love it. But deeper inside a high-quality intent data feed, there’s a whole lot of information about market patterns and organizational change that people like your planners and portfolio marketers can really leverage to help them optimize their whole GTM.
Join Rebecca Kitchens, TechTarget’s Executive Publisher as she shows how intent analyses enhance her customers’ visibility into and understanding of the real demand activity in their markets.

Moving Beyond Activity: Increase your Focus on Quality Interactions and Yield
John Steinert, Chief Marketing Officer (TechTarget)
Seth Marrs, Principal Analyst (Forrester)
Buyer interactions across the sales cycle have increased significantly – yet sales reps only spend 18% of their time engaged with buyers. In response, many teams are pumping up sheer outreach volume – a short-sighted approach that is killing potential deals and long-term revenue.
This session proves the key to more revenue is not more touches, but improving the quality of every touchpoint you do have. We’ll show you how with just a 5% improvement with each interaction, you can increase your chances of winning a deal by 67%.
Watch now to get key insight and guidance to:
*Strike the right balance between volume and quality in outreach and cadences
*Learn how to leverage intent data insights to increase touch quality
*Identify and avoid “deal killers” that are preventing you from maximizing account revenue
