Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

Yes, Zoom fatigue is real but virtual events are here to stay. So, how do you continue  to drive value in 2021 in a fatigued, virtual world? By creating human experiences and community.

Large scale virtual events are great. They allow you to showcase internal thought leaders and provide an environment for customers to learn tactics  they can put in place right away. But then what? Yes, you better promote  those highly produced on-demand sessions as helpful resources post-event. But  how do you build on attendee intent?

There is value in focusing your marketing chops towards small, intimate virtual events (think roundtables, workshops, or lunch & learns) where leaders can ideate and network with peers. By personalizing the event based  on industry verticals, roles and shared challenges -- it allows you to stop  marketing your product, company or event -- and instead start marketing your  solution.

Short answer: In 2021 use large scale virtual events to expand your reach.  But also leverage smaller virtual events to target your ICP and help move the  needle in targeted campaigns.

With COVID affecting  our field marketing team's strategy, we've had to dive deep into how we can best help drive revenue in a  now fully digital world. We've built a number of programs last year and  upcoming in 2021 that will still allow us to be successful and drive revenue  in a creative way.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

If there is one thing  2020 has taught me, it is to be flexible. 2021 brings the opportunity to  drive new ideas forward, continue to align to sales and revenue goals, and  yet do so with the framework that nothing is off the table. Looking to this  year, I am optimistic we will return to a hybrid approach with in-person  activities and be able to stretch our creative muscles to make new  experiences with this format. I expect to see a bridge of virtual content and  in-person experiences coming together to bring new life into physical events  and plan to use this format to bring even more engagement with our audiences.

Field Marketing Coordinator, Onapsis

About Paige Roderick

Paige Roderick is a creative revenue and field marketer who is passionate about developing marketing strategies that drive revenue and customer retention. She is a 2019 graduate of Fairfield University who jumped head-first into her career amidst the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. In her current role at Onapsis Inc, Paige supports the North American sales teams in pipeline growth through Account Based Marketing (ABM) strategies.

In 2020, Paige was challenged to build new avenues of engaging with clients and prospects.

At twenty-four years old, Paige's marketing career is just getting started. While there's a way to go, Paige is confident that we will continue to find ways to reinvent traditional marketing strategies. The pandemic has forced us to adapt every aspect of our lives. The landscape of how we do business has been changed forever. How we move forward to reinvent strategies for success is limited only by our imaginations and ability to find opportunity in unchartered waters.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

The top goal for  2021, is to ensure a strong and mutually beneficial partnership between sales  and marketing to help drive revenue. When marketers understand and share  revenue goals, both teams can strategically work together to make the  business successful. At the same time, marketers learn to anticipate sales  requests and can create custom programs and campaigns that generate pipeline  and support customer retention. A key strategy is leveraging data to focus on  an accounts engagement stage, which ensures our communications and programs  are targeted to the buyer and the pain points we solve. Custom programs and  virtual events are great resources for sales teams to engage and network with  prospective clients, in a time when it's not possible to do so in-person.  When sales leverages their marketing team as a business partner and a  resource, the opportunities for the business to succeed are endless - even in a 'virtual' world!

Darcy holds a BA from Tufts University, where she  specialized in Clinical Psychology.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

Embrace  virtual. As much as we want to plan in-person events again, the world needs  time to adjust. People have moved, lost jobs, lost loved ones, spent more  time with family, spent more time on personal interests, the list goes on...  It's important to keep an ear to the ground to see how people are feeling  as you strategize for the rest of the year.

We have some in-person small roundtable events penciled in for the end of  Q3 and Q4, but we're continuing to move forward and make virtual events  part of our programming. Virtual events can be more accessible and have a  greater reach. They can be just as successful as in-person events. Less  expensive and easier to spin up.

I think if 2020 taught me anything as a field marketer, it's to not put  all your eggs in one basket. Build out different types of events and  campaigns that will drive revenue. Once people are vaccinated, ease into live  events slowly. Try out small gatherings in local markets, outside if possible  while the weather is nice. Build in budget for in-person conferences and  larger events, but don't rely solely on live events for leads again. It's  going to be about experimenting again, so let's take it in stride!

We spent 2020  building relationships digitally and experimenting with virtual event offers,  while being more accessible to customers and prospects in other regions. We've been able to share best practices and apply insights across regions.  In 2021, we are creating unique digital experiences, executing scalable  programs and aligning more closely with our revenue team. All of the programs  we offer are mapped to each stage of the buyer's journey. The goal is to  create a lasting impact on the people we touch whether it's through social media,  blogs, virtual roundtables or hands-on workshops so they will want to come  back and engage with our brand when the timing is right. By taking a more  prescriptive approach we can help the sales team be more strategic about  using events to drive pipeline and accelerate deals.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

With each event  sponsorship this year, I am looking to drive toward 1 of 3 objectives: To  Know Alyce, Meet Alyce, or Feel Alyce. For our owned event strategy, I am  looking to create opportunities for our target market to Partner With Alyce,  Learn From Alyce, or Be Inspired By Alyce. But it's important that in any  kind of event, we are appealing to the person behind the persona, and  creating emotionally charged, memorable moments for them pre, during and  post-experience.

About Christina Alibrandi

I am an experiential marketer, field marketer and strategist with nearly a decade of experience, 6+ of them in the ad tech industry. I have a proven track record for leading high performing teams to ideate and execute programs in the B2B space. The programs I led were to drive pipeline, achieve significant ROI, strengthen relationships with key accounts, elevate a brand's visibility, and obtain maximum PR exposure.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

2020 was all about "pivoting". As Field and Event Marketers, we all had to make significant changes, perhaps many times throughout the course of the year. As we entered 2021 with more confidence in this virtual world there are many key learnings that can be applied to drive revenue this year.

One of the most important things I learned is incorporating personalization and interactivity into events is critical to ensuring an event would be well attended. We started hosting 1:1 custom events that were a hybrid mix of "fun" and content and saw our show rate increase to 90%+.

Our industry roundtable events were a new way for us to encourage networking and knowledge sharing amongst those who have similar roles and responsibilities. COVID-19 has impacted and will enable recovery for each industry differently. The industry lens applied to our events and content has been helpful to make sure our events drive more value and education for each person who attends.

From a campaign perspective, leveraging intent data and an ABM platform to create targeted campaigns has allowed us to identify prospects that were not previously known to us. During a time when inboxes are more cluttered than ever before, we have made great progress by focusing our always-on campaign efforts on those who are already in the market for an XM solution.

While in the past, it would be considered a best practice to have a multi-channel strategy for an event or campaign, we have found that it is essential to a program's success in this virtual world. This helps to make sure that your program stands out from the digital clutter since attendees are not able to engage in-person.

Some of your key plans/ tasks/ strategy you have in store for 2021 to be successful & drive revenue

Event marketing as a whole has had to totally pivot over the past year. It has been inspiring to see the community come together and rethink how we can connect with each other and deliver awesome content.  The thing I am the most excited for in 2021 is the evolution of hybrid events and what that means for some individuals who may have never been able to go to an in-person event in the past but now can still get a lot of the benefits without leaving their home. Although I can't wait to get back in the "field", I think this pause has allowed teams to be that much more strategic and creative with their event execution.
